Ep023: Obsessing Over Things That Don’t Matter

There are times when I spend too many hours obsessing over things that I know are silly. Things like should I cut my hair short or keep it long? Does it matter? Does anyone care? Do YOU care? Probably not.

In this week’s episode I share my dilemma AND my interpretation of what’s really going on in my brain.

If you find your mental energy consumed with making a decision on something that you know really isn’t important, then perhaps this week’s episode will give you a new perspective on how to deal with it.

Show Notes:

Would you like to have more time in your day to explore and achieve your goals? Would you like to have time to relax or hang out with friends or family members? If you have always thought there just aren’t enough hours in a day, I challenge you to reclaim your time!

My brand new 5-Day “Reclaim Your Time” Challenge is waiting to show you the hidden traps that are stealing your valuable time each time. If you are ready to reclaim an hour or more each day, take the few seconds required to sign up below!

The Two Categories of Goals

While out hiking last weekend, I had a goal-setting epiphany.

I do love that word! Epiphany!

One of the definitions listed on dictionary.com is this:

a sudden, intuitive perception of or insight into the reality or essential meaning of something, usually initiated by some simple, homely, or commonplace occurrence or experience.

So this lifelong goal setting and goal achieving woman had a light bulb moment while out on the trails in eastern New Hampshire.

What did you think?

Have you ever thought about whether your habits were project or habit based? Each type of goal will require a different approach and a different mindset.

I’m excited to explore more about these two categories of topics in the coming weeks!

I would love to learn about your project based goals in the comments below. Care to share? 🙂

Ep022: Words Used to Describe Yourself

Quick. Give me three words to describe yourself.

No, don’t think about it too much. Just tell me what words pop into your head.

Got them? Three words? Good.

Now take a little time to think about them. Think about why they are your first thoughts. Then dig a little deeper to come up with a dozen or more other words to describe you.

In this week’s episode, I share some thoughts on the words we use to describe ourselves and how limiting they can be. I also offer a few tips on how to expand our vocabulary when it comes to choosing those adjectives and nouns that convey to the ourselves (and the world) who we are and what we have to offer.

Celebrate Your Friendships

OOPS! I recorded the video below, uploaded it to YouTube, and then forgot to post it to my website. Yikes! It happens, right? I know, for me it happens frequently. HA HAHA I’m okay with that. I’m still getting things done. How about you? 🙂

Anyway… on with the show…

Last week I talked about the challenge we can have with talking to our friends. Sometimes they unintentionally hurt our feelings or we hurt theirs. It can be tough to address the issue head on. I hope that if you’ve experienced these types of conflicts, you’ve found a way to talk it out with your friend.

This week I talk about celebrating friendships. I had the pleasure of spending a few hours with a good friend recently, and I had forgotten what a blessing she is in my life.

I would love to know how you celebrate your friendships! Please share in the comments below.

Ep021: The 5-Day “Reclaim Your Time” Challenge

Time management. There are books written on the topic; classes taught on the topic. It is something most of us want to become better at, but yet we don’t have the time or take the time to figure out a better way to do things.

In today’s episode I am introducing a new audio challenge program that will soon be released (hopefully it will be available upon publication of this episode) to help you reclaim some wasted time in your day. The goal is to free up 30 to 60 minutes each day so you will have time to consistently pursue activities to improve your health, relationships, or overall sense of satisfaction with your life.

The time to reclaim your time is now!
