A button’s job is to get pushed

Share this:

A Button’s Job is to Get Pushed When we have a button, we can be supremely confident that it will get pushed. The only uncertainty is how soon until it gets pressed again. We can see this frequently when someone gets upset and we don’t get why they are even bothered by what happened. That […]

Falling on your own sword

Share this:

Falling on Your Own Sword If we put aside ego and our need to be right, often falling on our own sword is the best path to take. For many insignificant things, if we apologize or take responsibility (even if we aren’t at fault) it takes care of the other person and can even build […]

Thinking of reasons to fully engage or to not fully engage

Share this:

Thinking of Reasons to Fully Engage   or to Not Fully Engage We are either thinking of reasons why we shouldn’t fully engage (now’s not a good time, when ____ happens then I’ll engage, I’ll start tomorrow, and the like) or we are thinking of reasons why we should fully engage (I’m worth it, this […]

No curses accepted here

Share this:

No Curses Accepted Here People are cursing each other all the time and don’t even realize it. When we hear something like ~ “You cannot do that” or “That doesn’t happen to people like us” or “It isn’t going to work” or letting us know that there’s something wrong with us or . . . […]

Worst case scenarios and the boogeyman

Share this:

  Worst case scenarios and the boogeyman In general, focusing on worst case scenarios is not a good strategy. However, for short periods of time, this can be useful because an examined worst case scenario is usually far less horrible than the imagined worst case scenario. That scenario tends to be straight from the mind […]

Painful expectations

Share this:

Painful expectations  For unknown reasons, my mom started retaining some water. So, she was prescribed a diuretic. The nurse told her that she would be up all night going to the bathroom. Well, that did not happen, and it caused my mom to stress out, worry, and think that something was wrong. Expectations created pain […]

Ego test

Share this:

Ego test  Any time that we feel hurt, we are living out of our ego. Ego has us take things personally, worry about what others think about us, and think that there’s a position we need to defend. This is not a good strategy for happiness, for success, or for peace of mind. Much Love, […]

Discomfort = the price of your ticket

Share this:

Discomfort = the price of your ticket  Average performers run away from discomfort. Above average performers take action in the face of discomfort. So, for most people, the work to be done is to start to embrace discomfort – to start to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. If mediocrity is the goal then we don’t […]

The wrong to-do list

Share this:

The wrong to-do list  The temptation is to fill our schedules with action items that are in our comfort zone. This gives us a mock sense of accomplishment because we can point to all that we got done. But ultimately, this doesn’t support us in becoming the person we want to be or in achieving […]
