Till Death Do Us Part
19 October 2020
Having a Morbid Conversation with the Love of Your Life

It’s our wedding anniversary today, and while The Husband and I didn’t specifically say the words, “till death do us part” in our vows 17 years ago, we are all over death being the thing that parts us. This isn’t just because we’re into the lifelong commitment thing. It’s because we’ve had the death conversation....

Habits Suck

And You Thought Habits Were a Good Thing

We've already spoken about the 9 ways you are boring yourself to death, slowly but surely, during our global pandemic. Before this topic of boredom thoroughly bores you, I have something else to share with you about habits (you know, the things you think successful and highly effective people have more of than you do)....

9 Ways You Are Boring Yourself to Death in 2020

Details on the 9 ways boredom is killing you, slowly, during our global pandemic: 1. You slipped into autopilot and the plane is crashing. Are you in a walking corona-coma? You made choices about your lifestyle that you didn’t know you were making this spring, because you were held hostage by COVID and probably had...

Covid: A Golden Ticket to Reprioritize Your Life?

We already know that Covid has changed our lives in remarkable ways. I won’t bore you with those details— you’re already well aware that you’re working from your dining room table, home schooling people you love but wish were out of your home for most of the work week, and eating way too many Twinkies*....

Last Day of Summer 2020
21 September 2020
Summer, Like Your Life, Is Ending. One Ends Today.

It’s the last full day of summer 2020, and so you know what this means. I’m going to force you to think about your death. I know, I know. This has the potential to be a total buzzkill, but you know by now that there is an uplifting, life-affirming moral to every demoralizing story I...

Meaning in Pandemic
11 September 2020
Can A Pandemic Help You Reengage With Your Job?

(The answer is probably going to be yes, FYI.) I've been waxing metaphoric as of late about how COVID-19 has been a wake-up call for us to start living on purpose. With a stark reminder — of global proportions — that life is short, many of us have been motivated to start participating in life...

How old were you when you died

How Old Were You When You Died?

“Some people die at 25 and aren’t buried until 75,” said Ben Franklin, who then went out, all zesty for life, and became a founding father of the country (and found himself firmly emblazoned on the $100 bill). Nietzsche likely wasn’t thinking of him when he said, “Man is the only animal that has to...

How do you want to live

What Kind of Life Do You Want to Live?

Somewhere along the way I’ve gotten myself obsessed with death – less to do with me being morbid and creepy and more to do with my even greater obsession with living. Not just living with a little “l,” though; Living with a big “L.” Little “l” living is us in that comfort zone that’s so...

Have the courage to be creative

Have the Courage to Be Creative

Words of wisdom for all you closet creatives. One of the best highlights of the year (other than gluten-free Oreos hitting the market) (oh, and vaccines) has been the serendipitous gift of working with a bunch of clients who on the outside are “Successful Business People,” and on the inside are “Supremely Talented Creative Types.” People...

How Many Monday Mornings Do You Have Left

How Many Monday Mornings Do You Have Left?

Oh, and I do mean in total. In the life you’re living right now. I’m looking at 1,981 Mondays if I end up living an exceptionally average life. (Women have until 81 to RIP, on average; men, you have until 76– sorry. FYI, my finances and hopes are budgeting for a longer life than that.)...

I'll Be Happy When
20 July 2020
I’ll Be Happy When…

Making our happiness contingent on the “Very Important Thing” that’s for sure going to hopefully happen in the future (like getting that promotion, losing 17 pounds, or moving to Boulder– or all three!) means that a) we’re delusional, and b) we’re pressing the pause button on the very lives we’re living right now – because...

Grass Is Greener at New Job
14 July 2020
How Green Will the Grass Really Be in Your New Job?

Look inside before you look outside. We’re changing jobs every 4.2 years, us fickle and disengaged worker-bees. Harvard Business Review says that people are most likely to leave a job around their one-year work anniversary because we apparently all believe that the grass is greener, even in concrete jungles. Are we obsessed with the idea of...
