What Christmas Movies Do You Watch?

by Patricia

Holidays are mixed blessings for most of us. I find myself wondering how the movies people watch during this time reflect their emotional state. (This of course could be true any day of the year!). Do you watch the kid movies? About Santa and reindeer and snowmen? An inner child wanting the times of innocence […]

Hobby? What’s that?

by Patricia

My daily task for the Successful Living Basic Training follow-up is to start a hobby if I don’t have one. That got me thinking. For the last 30 years, my “hobby” has been the Center, Taking It Lightly, creating community. For the last 20 years, I’ve had a second “hobby” – doing veterans work. Both […]

Successful Living Basic Training Launches this Month

by Patricia

I AM SO EXCITED!! This is a dream several years in the making. A start that fell apart. Big life changes that required urgent attention. The result was that the dream went on the back-burner until early this year. Nine months in the making (what a co-incidence 😉 that was completely unplanned, just realized it […]

by Patricia

We are learning every moment, processing billions of bits of data per second through the system that is our body and brain. The question is “What will you choose to consciously pay attention to?” We are aware of only 2,000 bits of data per second and the rest of the billions are, fortunately, processed without […]

by Patricia

I’ve been having discussions recently with people about happiness, as clients have been saying “I just want to be happy.” This peaked my curiosity and I started asking the question “What does that mean to you?

Overwhelmed? One step at a time!

by Patricia

This has been quite a month, two weeks of illness, two weekend intensives in a row, travel and corporate training. Blessed with a cancellation of an expo event, I’ve had a day off today.

Rants and Ramblings on a Summer Morning

by Patricia

Delayed Gratification, say yes to no, discipline yourself. But I don’t want to!!!! I want to just do what I feel like doing, when I feel like doing it. I don’t want to go to work. I don’t want to clean the house. I want to watch tv. I want to read a book. I […]

Time to go on the BSO diet!

by Patricia

It’s definitely time! This is a diet that every entrepreneurial mind, every creative mind, needs to go on at some point, sometimes frequently. It’s not about food. BSO is Bright Shiny Opportunity. Some folks with Attention Deficit call it Bright Shiny Object. It’s that creative distraction, that sounds-so-good opportunity, that truly great idea that we […]

Addicted to Emotions?

by Patricia

Seth Godin’s recent blog Angry is a Habit reminded me that we can become addicted to an emotional state.  Our perspectives become habits, our attitudes become habits as we repeatedly tell our stories about them, reinforcing them with emotion. Habits are addictions and at some point they become who we are instead of just something […]
