How are your resolutions going? Are you sticking to them? Are things going well so far? I know lots of people love New Year's resolutions, so it's great if they work for you.

Happy New Year! I know it's May... but doesn't it feel like the time for new beginnings? I've written before about how much I dislike New Year's resolutions. I know others who love them, so if they work for you, then great—you can stop reading, because you're already in your 5th month of achievement! For me, the [...]

Are you largely clear about what you want to achieve, but unsure about next steps? Do you ever get to the end of another month feeling like you haven’t made much progress?

All of us can be adversely affected by clutter in our lives—I believe that it creates ‘stuck energy’. Don't you love that feeling of lightness when your desk is clear? Or when you’ve cleaned out a drawer? Or sorted through your email inbox? When you de-clutter life, doesn't that also de-clutter your mind? As my New [...]
