Flow is a concept created by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, a psychologist.  In his book, Flow: The Pscyhology of Optimal Experience, he states that flow is “a state in which people are so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter; the experience is so enjoyable that people will continue to do it even at great cost, for the sheer sake of doing it” (1990). For him, flow is about optimizing happiness and improving performance - which are awesome and useful, and fabulous potential side effects. ...

Why do you care about working at your best?

Relaxing probably won’t kill me, it just feels that way.  


I find it incredibly challenging to give myself permission to take time off from work and relax.  As a business owner, I am constantly working. Or thinking about work. Or feeling guilty for not working when I’m doing anything that isn’t work.

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to take some time off and go to Disney World with my family to ride the new Millenium Falcon ride (it was epic).  However, before I left, I couldn't help being filled with a sense of dread that I would not be getting any work done while I was there. I knew I would have fun, relax, and recharge, but I find it extremely challenging to do these important things.  But I did it! I didn’t even take my computer on the trip. I only had...

5 steps to accomplish more by being more realistic about your time

I’m getting excited about the New Year because I love to plan!  But I can get a little out of touch with reality fairly quickly.  For instance, I will not be cooking healthy and awesome meals daily because that’s insane and I don’t have 5 extra hours every day.  Instead, I meal prep on Sundays to make sure I’m able to focus on eating healthy all week long - but while still being realistic about my time.

What are your biggest priorities and how can you make sure they will happen?

How can you set yourself up for accomplishing ALL of your goals for next year?  

By being more realistic about how long things really take to get done and then planning for it.  


You will accomplish more

If you are able to be realistic about how long things really take, then you can plan better and accomplish more. You can enable yourself to be more successful because the goal is actually possible. It can also allow to prioritize to focus on what's...

3 Mistakes You Are Making When Setting Your New Year’s Goals (and how to fix them)

goals productivity Dec 09, 2019

I’m getting ready for the New Year, which of course means - goal setting!  I love setting goals. I like dreaming about what might be in the future, and then figuring out how to get there. 


About 10 years ago I made the most insane New Year’s resolutions list ever.  It had 72 things on it. It included awesome ideas like: ride in a hot air balloon, take a ballet class, learn Italian, learn Spanish, learn to cook, go to the gym everyday, and learn how to paint.  It’s great to have dreams, but none of these were going to happen because I never set actual goals to support them. My favorite: I will go to the gym everyday. LOL. I didn’t even belong to a gym.  How was it going to happen? Was I going to use magic? When was I going to fit in going to the gym in between learning two languages and going to ballet classes?  



Top 3 mistakes that people make when setting goals:

  1. Setting an outcome goal WITHOUT the...
