Some Days, We Come Full Circle

London.  The city where I fell in love with retail (and my partner…).  The city where I became fascinated with corporate law and walking cities, paving the way for the life and career that lay ahead of me.  The city where, almost twenty years later, I just celebrated the opening of my company’s first international...

Some Days, We Get Real

Let’s be real for a moment.  This sh!t is hard.  Which sh!t?  All the sh!t.  Be honest.  Am I right? Some days, the world tells us that we should have it all together.  But the reality is, we usually don’t.  I’m not being hard on myself (or yourself).  It’s just the truth.  I fail at...

Some Days, We Power-Up

I played enough Super Mario growing up to know that powering-up was where it was at.  That moment when you got the Super Star or the Magic Mushroom took everything to the next level.  Even if things weren’t going especially well for you leading up to that moment, the power-up was a total game changer. ...

Some Days, We Judge Not

The other day, a... Continue Reading →

Some Days, We Have Great Expectations

Being a grown up.  That big move.  Marriage.  Having kids.  The promotion you’ve been working towards.  The career you thought you wanted.  We have great expectations.  About all sorts of things.  And it’s wonderful and exciting.  Developing a vision for what is possible is powerful and motivating.  It’s that fire that keeps you engaged and...

Some Days, It’s All Integrated

We often speak of our different lives. Our work life. Our personal life. Our family life. Isn’t it true, though, that we have only, as Mary Oliver says, “one wild and precious life”? Worthy of pondering is what you will do with it in this lease of unknown duration.  Also worth considering, I believe, is... Continue Reading →

Some Days, We Need to Feel It

One of the things that has surprised me as I’ve progressed in my journey of humaning is the important role that grieving plays in growing, healing and evolving.  Like perhaps many of us, I often associated grieving almost exclusively with death.  And, of course, that is one of the most profound forms of grief and...

Some Days, We (Over) Check Ourselves

Ice Cube taught us that we need to check ourselves before we wreck ourselves.  And, certainly, I’m a proponent of intentionality, thoughtfulness and self-reflection.  But, how much checking is too much checking?  Can you also wreck yourself by over checking yourself? It shows up time and again in our professional lives.  That instinct to check... Continue Reading →
