In First Gear - Misunderstanding what it takes
"In First Gear Everything Feels Like A Hill ~ Michael Neill" If we don't know we have extra gears, everything feels hard. Our world shrinks and so does our impact. Let's talk on that.
Shopping for Shingles - Nailing the Lesson
Confusion leads to... Finish the sentence with what seems best.. overwhelm, indecision, no decision, frustration, or... What lessons can we draw from shopping for what is a fairly common thing for people to run into as homeowners, and what can it mean for our business?
Fearing Fear - Confuddling Moments
Awareness is a beautiful thing. Especially when it stares you in the face with a brow raised quizzically and an expectant look on its face, waiting for you to catch on.
One of the phrases I keep hearing these days is, “oh no, we shouldn’t be afraid”, or “no, no, we shouldn’t make decisions out of fear”, BUT the whole discussion is centred around fear of one one thing or another or funny awareness hit, around fear itself.

Opportunities in Disruption - Asking a Different Question

The cost of burying your head or looking away is exponential on multiple levels in those cases. This one has got me wound up a little (understatement). Let's talk!
Is it “Life” beating you down? Really?
Do our circumstances create our reality or is our thoughts? What does creating stuff in the world feel like to you? What are you tying it to you that may be holding you back? Ooh let's talk about it.
Procrastination - what's really holding you back
Thinking, overthinking, lack of thinking, or is it something else?
