Being a purple cow

Share this:

Being a purple cow  I had a conversation today with some friends about follow up that reminded me of Seth Godin’s book, Purple Cow, that came out in 2003. The book in a nutshell is: After you’ve seen a bunch of cows, you stop paying attention. But if you saw a purple cow, you’d start […]

Escaping the double bind

Share this:

Escaping the double bind    A double bind is a situation where neither option is desirable, either way we lose. Our thinking often puts us into double binds. I can either be a good parent or have a successful career. This double bind has me choosing between being a bad father or being a bad […]

Experiences Create Expectations

Share this:

Experiences Create Expectations  Our expectations are often based on what we have experienced. And, this process tends to happen automatically and non-consciously rather than intentionally. So, we don’t even know that we have these expectations. This dynamic then often has us get in our own way because we create limiting self-fulfilling prophecies. For example, ~ […]

You are pretty good  

Share this:

You are pretty good  I recently had someone tell me that I’m a pretty good volleyball player. That made me think – compared to what? Compared to backyard BBQ jungle ball players, I’m amazing. Compared to the guys on the Olympic team, I’m horrible. I’m a better player than some of the guys that I […]

The power of little things

Share this:

The power of little things  We often underestimate the power of little things like – a smile, a kind word, a prayer, a pat on the back, listening, a phone call just to say “thinking of you” etc. Since we underestimate the power of these things, it makes it easy to not bother to do […]

Self-Confidence

Share this:

Self-Confidence  Many people would like to be more confident. From my experience and observation nothing builds confidence more than recognizing what we did or the result we produced. Saying, “I did that!” is incredibly affirming, nourishing and, builds both capacity and confidence. However, most of us have been taught some nonsense about “don’t toot your […]

I’m OK so give the glory away

I’m OK so give the glory away  Project CURE had its volunteer appreciation lunch today where Millie, Barb, and Dave received the Lifetime Achievement Award for over 10,000 volunteer hours (and I’m sure they have a lot more hours of service than that). First of all, how amazing is that! 10,000+ hours devoted to kindness, […]

The elephant in the personal growth room

Share this:

The elephant in the personal growth room  The thing that does not get spoken about in personal growth circles is that being a human is a very complicated thing. It can be hard. There are so many non-conscious agendas and emotional hot buttons pushing and pulling us that we often end up in our own […]

You choose the movies of your life

Share this:

You choose the movies of your life  The movie I choose to watch will determine my experience and how I feel. A comedy will make me laugh. A horror flick will make me scared. A romantic movie might make me cry. Etc. So, what are the movies that we play in our heads? If I […]

Who are you looking at?

Share this:

Who are you looking at?  So often we end up looking outside of ourselves rather than inside of ourselves. This causes us to think and say things like ~ I’ll be happy when my sweetie gives me more attention. I’ll be happy when they stop doing that. I’ll be happy when I’m making more money. […]
