The Best Love Story You Could Ever Get

By on May 25, 2017 in Inspiration, Lessons, Life, Love | 0 comments

I hate it. I hate THIS. I hate being right here, right now. I hate it because there is nothing I can do to change it. I love someone who has chronic anxiety and depression. And it’s not that he’s mean. He’s not. It’s not that he’s insensitive. He’s not. It’s that I watch him struggle and the struggle freaking SUCKS. And he? He loves someone who has cancer. It’s like we can’t win. It’s an uphill battle, but it’s an uphil battle we both choose to navigate day in and day out….like fucking rockstars. We really do. It’s those moments we spend, sitting across from one another, after midnight, where we talk about how we struggle or what we struggle with, until we can’t bear to talk about it anymore. It’s the moments I tell him, “Hey, I NEED you to quit worrying about me.” It’s the...

Your Lack of Higher Order Thinking Skills Pisses Me Off, But It Should Piss You Off Too

So here’s my challenge to you. I double dog dare you to hold yourself accountable online, to a community of other people who are dedicated to holding themselves accountable too. Do this, and watch the love and support you get from the community change your mindset, and possibly even your life.

I Came *This Close* to Giving up … Here’s Why I Didn’t.

Shares Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google+ StumbleUpon My new book was published on February 29th. The Coaching Habit: Say Less, Ask More and Change the Way You Lead Forever  is elegant, compact and is already getting lots of nice reviews on Amazon and elsewhere. I’m really proud of it. And yet, this was the book I’ve come closest to abandoning. It’s taken me more than three years, at least four false starts, and a certain amount of head-banging despair to finally get here, something I didn’t experience with my other books. So what happened? And how did I make it after all? Feeling good. Perhaps even a little smug. The Coaching Habit will be book #5, and I’d really thought I’d got the hang of things. Do More Great Work was originally self-published, but it got picked up almost immediately by a New York publisher and has gone on to sell nearly...

Depression is a Duplicitous Bitch

By on May 22, 2017 in Inspiration, Lessons, Life | 0 comments

One minute you’re fine. You’ll drink a pint or so of coffee, you’ll plan out your day and everything is wonderful and perfect and dandy. The next minute? You just want to crawl in to bed and sleep. That’s the thing about depression. The bitch sneaks up on you. She’s like a jackal, hunting you in the night, waiting to pounce on your chest and crush you under her sea of doubt, but she never waits for the night anymore, she attacks all day. She’s always right behind you, and you can feel the weight of her all the time. 24/7….365 days a year. She crushes you, she robs you, she is your constant companion, as much as you wish she wasn’t. You can’t think. You can’t focus. You can’t even fucking breathe. You reach for your pills that the myriad of doctors have give you by then; the tranquilizers, the relaxants, the anti-anxiety meds and you shove and handful into your mouth with some water....

It’s Time to Stop: 20 Things You Need to STOP, today.

By on May 21, 2017 in Lessons | 0 comments

You may not be able to control all the things people do to you, but you can decide that those aren’t your truths anymore.  You can decide not to allow the actions and opinions of anyone else invade your heart and mind and become toxic to your soul.  And above all, you can decide whom to walk beside into tomorrow, and whom to leave behind today. It’s time to… Stop letting people drag you into needless arguments. – Never waste your time trying to explain yourself to people who have proven that they are committed to misunderstanding you.  And don’t define your intelligence or self-worth by the number of arguments you have won, but by the number of times you have said, “This needless nonsense is not worth my time!” Stop letting people drown you with their negativity. – Positivity is a choice.  Choose wisely.  Be smart enough to walk away from the negativity around you… it is never...

How to Never Lose Your Muchness In a World Who Wants You to Do Nothing but Lose Your Muchness

By on May 20, 2017 in Lessons | 1 comment

Conformity. Social norms. Not my bag. Never wanted them to be. If you are reading this, you shouldn’t either. If you could label me, I’d be the rebel, the outcast; the overachieving asshole. I’m okay with all those tags. After all, I realize that they are other people’s labels for me, not my labels for myself. And, truth be told, no one knows me better than I do. So to me, YOUR labels don’t matter. That’s what happens when you realize you can’t lose your muchness. Opinions mean little, attitude means everything. No one knows you better than what you do, either. We live in a world where love and life and success come pre-defined in a box that is wrapped up neatly in a package of happy on the corner of “Xanax and Fuck You”. People have to fit into boxes. Feelings have to fit into boxes. Everything has to fit into a perfect box of normality and come complete with a white picket fence or...
