More planning, more organizing, more thinking, more housework, more peacemaking, more teaching, and more learning. All with less time, less energy, less sleep, less focus, and less patience. People ask me all the time, “How do...

How to Overcome Writer’s Block

“It’s hard to write, darling, but it’s harder not to” As communicators, writing is part of nearly everything we do in our professional and personal lives.

The Case for Meditation

It’s that time of year where resolutions have either fizzled out or they are full-steam ahead! I came into 2018 with two resolutions – one for myself and one for my company: Meditate regularly.
