Sometimes we get boxed in by our identities. I'm an athlete. A secretary. A physician. An executive. A mom. There's value into connecting to these identities. Though make no mistake, you have so much more to offer beyond a singular identity, should you choose to do so.

Life's a hike. Reaching heights well above sea level rattles your mind and body. Moving too fast is dangerous for the blood. Moving too slow makes you question the climb. Pace your pursuits.

Mondays can be brutal. Still hungover from the weekend? Didn't accomplish your Saturday errands? Walked into a landmine of work-related issues? Maybe this Monday needs less counting "to-dos" and more counting blessings.

We industrious folk get seduced by the desire to take on too much too quickly. This can lead to stress and disorganization. Yes there's a time and place for binging, but there's also a time and place for sampling. Know when to say when.

Despite being the most intelligent of all species, it's amazing how much we humans overcomplicate our lives. Believe it or not, hard problems can have simple answers. That snot-nosed, dirty-handed, smart-aleck, six-year-old might actually know a thing or two.

Stop expecting to be so damn good at everything you do, especially at the start. Cut yourself some slack and stumble a bit. Learning something new takes time.

Fires. Hurricanes. Protests. Elections. Viruses. Repeat. Too much can clunk up our mojo. Instead, watch a sloth crossing a road every once awhile. Or a dog wearing sunglasses. Your soul will thank you.

Has it been a tough week? As you head into Friday consider whether you have been stiff arming opportunities by "but-ing" them away. Instead, take a pause and try combining forces. End the week with some "and."

People say you have to be passionate about what you do. I call bullshit! There are a lot of things on our journeys toward growth, self-actualization, and success that are not fun, thrilling, or passion inducing. However, doing those things gets us to the good stuff.

We’re a very change centric culture. But change isn’t always the answer. Start with awareness. Identify the pros and cons of change. And then act (or not act) with purpose.

Listen, not all your days are going to be hunky-dory. But, when you give it another go, a lot of them will be. Tomorrow is only a day away.

There's a lot of advice out there about the "right" and "wrong" way to go about living your life. Sometimes the RIGHT angle, is YOUR angle.

Do you find yourself discussing COVID response, civil unrest, or the upcoming election with others? Do you simply want to have more positive social interactions, meet new people, or deepen connections? This question will help you "win friends and influence people."

Complaining drains your energy and the energy of others. Either accept where you're at or work to change it.

Road construction sucks, but it can lead to a smoother ride. Hmm, life metaphor perhaps?? 🤔 🚘 🚧

For the one millionth time....less is more. Progressing slowly is still progressing. Tag a friend that needs to hear this...again.
