Year of Push 2.15 I Believe I Can Fly (Literally)

Oh boy. I feel (almost) like a new woman today! I shared yesterday that while under the weather, I went two full days without drinking ANY coffee.

Year of Push 2.13 What Can I Do?

Year of Push 2.11 Stop Being Dramatic

It's Marathon Monday here in the New England! Today is the Boston Marathon and since I live on the race route, the roads are closed for the majority of the day. I ran a marathon once. True story.

All of these emails have one thing in common: low expectations. There is a behavioral ...Read More

Happy Thursday, loves! My day started off with some work on Saturday's podcast which got me thinking about back to my most powerful question: What opportunities can I create today to take impeccable care of myself? These things certainly won't happen by accident. I won't drift towards impeccable choices and consistent self-care. This week has been totally crazy and I've been driving all over creation every day. Today, I don't ...Read More

321: Are You Settling for “Good Enough” or “Better Than Before”?


Are you settling for "good enough" or not making further progress because you are "better than before"? This is something I see all the time when people make progress.
