It’s been a minute

The last time I wrote on this blog was August 2021, and that wasn’t really a blog post, it was a podcast episode. My last genuine post was all the way back in November of 2020. Wow, time flies! ๐Ÿš€

In the meantime, I’ve kept busy in a good way. I kicked off a weekly newsletter, Thoughtful Thursday, enrolled and served a few dozen private coaching clients, and ran another cohort of my group coaching program – Transformative Leadership, to name a few work-related happenings.

Life-wise, a lot has also happened. We moved from Colorado to Minnesota. Sold two homes and bought another. Got sick (a few times) and got well. Along the way we had all sorts of little adventures, despite the pandemic restrictions, to keep life interesting.

The is no other point of this short post than to say “Hello, I’m still here!” If you are still following what I have to say, thanks for sticking it out. The creative spark in me is flowing again, in the general direction of my keyboard and this blog. You can expect to read more from me in the months to come.

One way to overcome analysis paralysis

Vanilla or chocolate? This was the crucial decision outside of Dairy Queen recently. My son thought long and hard about it (a few seconds is a long time for a three-year-old) until - with my pointing it out - he realized that he could have both! The vanilla-chocolate...

The friendly universe hypothesis

Is the universe friendly? I posed this question on LinkedIn a while ago and it provoked reactions, some shared in DMs or email, that ranged from "yes yes yes!!!" to "WTF? The universe doesn't give a s@#t about anyone". Responses showed that people mostly think that...
