Happy Anniversary

This morning this little icon appeared in WordPress, along with a quick note: “Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com! You registered on WordPress.com 5 years ago. Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging.” Wow, it has been 5 years. Where did the time…

Unleashed

Unleashed. No longer held back. No internal barriers stopping you. No external barriers getting in your way. Unlike an untethered state, Unleashed is when you are completely free to pursue your biggest dreams. Unleashed means to set in motion. What does that motion mean for…

Guess…with positive intent

Yesterday we had one of those conversations. The kind of conversation that matters. The kind of conversation that means something. We talked about marriage and when you just take the leap. We talked about kids and parenting. We talked about struggling when you are young,…

Mourning the loss of who you thought you would be

(Image Courtesy of the Great Robin Lake) We start out in life thinking we are going to be a certain thing. We make plans. We make choices. We move in a direction. We become invested in who we are going to be. Sometimes dreams…

The Hard Work of Dreams

(Image courtesy of the One of My Dreams, and the road trip) Sometimes our dreams don’t work out. But dreams (goals, aspirations, how we want things to be) can fool us into thinking that the road will be easy. We have this idea, so…

Dancers Dance

I am surrounded by dance. Strange rhythmic sounds echo from the upstairs of our house. Spins occur in our kitchen. Spontaneous taps break out during random lulls. Terms foreign to me are thrown around during cookouts. Pottaburray? Pleeaaayyy? Kickball steps? Kickball chains? For two decades…

Recalibrating the GPS

It started as a simple conversation about running, pace, and times. We both opened up the app on our phones and talked about some of the struggles, successes, and challenges ahead while scrolling through the history. Then it came out. “I must need to recalibrate…

What are you training for?

“What are you training for?” A few years ago a friend posed this question when we decided to go out for a run together. I wasn’t sure how to reply. I was just running. No plan, just running. “Nothing really, I am just running.” Their…

A Little Further?

(Image courtesy of Google Maps and Screen Capture) A planned team run. A simple goal. 10 miles. A longer run. The long route concludes on our regular course. The roads we run on each week. A Little Further? Three simple words. Three simple words posed as…

I Am Trying

Breakfast with close friends is a favorite thing. Great food, great coffee, and great opportunities to talk and connect. Typically these talks include catching up on life, work, and our goals for both. On this particular morning we were discussing my goal of posting…

The Decade of Training

(Image Courtesy of Etsy.com) Through a combination of coaching conversations, and reflections on my own life I have noticed a pattern. Many of us wish we were further along in our lives, careers, or relationships. We speak as if there is some place we…

Internal Customers

A few weeks ago, I was teaching a customer service class. One of the exercises split the group into small teams and they were asked to identify all of their customers. The lists grew, and the flip charts filled. As I walked from group…
