Do More By Doing Less

THE PRACTICE Alright, I’m going to date myself a bit here, but Ever since that damn 1980’s Enjoli perfume commercial, I have been obsessed with the idea of “doing” and “having” it ALL. “I can bring home the bacon.” — Yup, that’s right.  I have a career, not just a job. “Fry it up in […]

Worthiness is not Earned, It is Clamed

THE PRACTICE I’ve spent a great deal of time (wasted now I understand), hustling, cajoling and tap dancing my way to worthiness.   Pleasing and perfecting my way towards self validation and approval.  While at the time I felt helpless to stop this, it  felt really, really sucky.  Because nothing makes me feel more unworthy than […]

The Power Of NO

THE PRACTICE So on top of being a recovering perfectionist, I’m also a bit of a recovering people pleaser.  I was trained from a young age that the needs of others were more of a priority than my own, and this conditioning made me really good at meeting other peoples needs.  After a while, I […]

A Recovering Perfectionist Guide To Time Management

THE PRACTICE Here’s the deal:  I got me three year old twins, a husband, a business and all the laundry, cooking, shopping and cleaning that goes along with it.  Being the “at home” parent, even though I work full time, means getting saddled with tasks I have to fit in my day, yet be wildly […]

Mental Toughness + Practice = Success

THE PRACTICE There’s knowing something and then there’s knowing something.  That’s what the practice is all about.  Making common sense, common practice.  While we might know logically that it takes time and dedication to develop our skills, our craft, ourselves, we get a bit impatient when we don’t do something right, right away (I know […]

I woke up like..this

WELCOME TO THE PRACTICE I wanted to create a space where both I and you could unwind a bit.  We spend so much time trying to be every thing to every body, but where do we go to get better, train and improve.  Because I don’t know about you, but I DID NOT wake up […]

Transform Your Pain Into Power

“I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me.  Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me.  But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, my power is made perfect in weakness.”  Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about […]

The Difference Between Your Career and Your Calling

“My career is what I’m paid for.  My calling is what I’m made for” –Steve Harvey I heard the great quote from Steve Harvey just the other day.  The truth of this just stopped me dead in my tracks.  I know for years, I intermingled my career and my calling, like strands of hair I […]

Why You Should Start Putting Yourself First

Sounds logical, right?  I mean, it all starts with you, doesn’t it, so you should be first in line when it comes to care, attention and needs being met.  But for years (at least for me), this was the hardest thing to do.  Instead, I put myself dead last and suffered the resentment, burn out […]

How To Stand Out and Stop Giving A Damn What People Think

Look, we ALL want to please people.  It’s our nature.  We’ve been groomed to care deeply what others think of us.  I spent years just trying to get people to like me.  Lots of time well wasted, but I didn’t know any better at the time.  Here’s the problem with needing people to like me.  […]
