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! πŸš€

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.

Quitting Twitter and getting on with my life

I quit Twitter the other day. It has nothing (really!) to do with Elon and everything to do with how social technology seems designed to fracture, divide and capture attention at the cost of well-being and personal (and group) performance. Moderation was not working...

What I’ve learned this year (2022 edition)

John Dewey, an education reformer and philosopher, is well-known for his understanding that learning doesn't come from experience. It comes from reflecting on experience. Being December as I write this, there is a certain nostalgia in the air as the year comes to a...

It’s time to step off the time management treadmill from hell

There once lived a King in a faraway land. A tyrant who was ruthless though successful in the eyes of the world. Commerce flourished even if heads rolled under his heavy-handed reign. Whatever he wanted was had at any price. Eventually the King was challenged to a...

Bad news and the power of suspending judgment

Michael slipped on a patch of ice getting into a friends car and fell. A self-proclaimed "klutz," taking a tumble wasn't out of the ordinary. This time, embarrassment wasn't the problem. A lingering pain in his wrist meant something serious was going on. An MRI would...
