What If There Were No Obstacles?

I am really excited to be working with horses again! I have been taking horsemanship lessons at Emerald Hollow in Brewster and I’m partnering with Liz Adams, the Program Director for the Emerald Hollow Therapeutic Riding Center (https://www.emeraldhollow.org) to offer a few innovative programs using horses (some, even with “Coaching with a Horse” segments!)! Doing this […]

Tech is Kicking My Butt

I’m a planner (I can see those of you who know me shaking your head vigorously yes and saying “Yup!” or in the case of my husband, he is saying, “That’s an understatement!”).  I love to know what I’m going to be doing and when I’m going to be doing it.  I also seem to […]

Take a Walk, Be More Productive

I have, like most of us, a gazillion things I want to get done in any given day.  Some of you may have heard me say my to-do list if I put it on a scroll would roll from Massachusetts to California!  And, I know I’m not the only one who feels this way.  One […]

“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.” ~ Leo Tolstoy Feeling rushed rarely helps us reach our desired outcome. I know, personally, I do not respond well to being rushed.

Consistent Productivity

I love walking on the beach!  I walk in all kinds of weather.  It doesn’t matter if it’s the heat of summer or the freezing cold of winter. One of my favorite things during my walks are the waves.  I always know the waves will be there, no matter what else is going on in […]

I Love Tea!

I love tea!  When all my friends were drinking coffee in college, I drank tea.  Even when I worked in corporate, I drank tea.  I drank regular black tea, green tea, decaffeinated tea, etc.  Since I drank tea all the time, I found myself collecting many different types of teas.  One entire cabinet in our […]

Not busy = Unproductive

Recently my networking colleague was lamenting because she normally is a very productive person; however, over the past few weeks things have been slow and she finds it difficult to get anything done!  Does this happen to you, too? It definitely happens to me!  I’ll be zipping through things at maximum speed, crossing things off […]

Is it Time for Some Time Off?

“Vacations brighten a man. They tend to make his work more attractive to him and to make him more attractive to his work.” ~ Harry Van Demark Cranky, impatient, exhausted and a mistake magnet are just a few of the words used to describe someone who is in dire need of a vacation.  Have you […]
