Not having the time is the number one excuse we all use when we aren’t getting the results we want. I won’t argue with the fact that our lives are jammed packed with activity. For many of my clients it’s work, kids, house chores, and the ones who don’t is time management. You can’t delete your job or kids nor can you dissolve your pain immediately, but you can manage your life differently.

Not having the time is the number one excuse we all use when we aren’t getting the results we want. I won’t argue with the fact that our lives are jammed packed with activity. For many of my clients it’s work, kids, house chores, and bed.
The difference between my clients who get what they want and the ones who don’t is time management. You can’t delete your job or time with your kids, but you can manage it differently.

Wow, I have gotten so many interesting submissions to the “What’s the craziest thing you’ve done to achieve a goal?” contest. It’s really amazing what people will do to achieve a goal; it’s also interesting how much resistance people have to setting or achieving goals. I also noticed a pattern where people who had achieved the goal were analyzing what they had done and whether it was the right or wrong way to approach meeting the goal.
As a “recovering” perfectionist (I say recovering because it’s a hard habit to break), I think it’s important to allow yourself to [...]
We’ve talked a lot lately about becoming clearer on your goals and a tremendous amount of choices, so it’s not uncommon to know what step to take next.
What it all comes down to is prioritizing. Defining what really is urgent and time) needed to accomplish your other goals. Pay close attention to your mental state when deciding when you think it’s urgent to do an important task, it just won’t feel right.

Laura’s approach to identifying and enjoy my current life.
Laura was a gift from my daughter, literally. She thought the session would help me get through the barrage of interviews I had recently been on, but not getting the job. After years of therapy, books…
I admit that I was apprehensive to work with a coach at first, but once we got started that apprehension went right away. I am reminded with every session as to how intuitive, genuine, and is like a l…
