Do it now…sometimes later becomes never

The Coach’s Corner Newsletter #37 What do you love to do? There are number of things that come immediately to mind for me including coaching, cycling, gardening, reading, hanging out with my husband, family and friends. What don’t you like to do? Again, plenty of things pop up: I am not fond of business development, […]

Sometimes you just need a hug

The Coach’s Corner Newsletter #36 As I logged into a peer coaching session this week, our grandson rushed into my office. The only thing he wanted was a hug. He would not be denied. My gracious peer coach and I launched our conversation and within minutes, he was distracted by pen and paper and rushed […]

What’s that thing you don’t want to do?

The Coach’s Corner Newsletter #35 Before the sun comes up, you can hear me in the backyard jumping rope. And every (single) morning I remind myself of the benefits: a full-body workout in 10 minutes, better balance, increased bone density and better heart health. That’s because when it’s cold or wet or hot or whatever, […]

What drives you crazy?

The Coach’s Corner Newsletter #34 Maybe it’s the end of the first month of 2024. Last week’s full moon? World events? I’ve been feeling on edge. This week someone decided to speed through a very clearly marked stop sign in my neighborhood as I was walking to the park. I raised my hands, yelled something […]

Don’t run from disorder, go through it

The Coach’s Corner Newsletter #33 Sometimes it takes a sense of disorder to bring me back to my senses. Growing up the oldest of six kids, our home had its share of chaos. My sister and I, along with four brothers, competed for bathroom space, best seats in the station wagon and who could hide […]

A time to be silent

The Coach’s Corner Newsletter #32 Waiting in line at the grocery store this week, it was just my luck to be behind two people who were having a heated discussion about a family matter as they slammed their groceries onto the conveyer belt. Trapped between them and another shopper in line, there was nowhere to […]

Being intentional

The Coach’s Corner Newsletter #31 I am not a huge fan of cold weather, and living in Colorado at this time of year makes it difficult to avoid snow, freezing temperatures and strong winds. Since I have no desire to hunker down for the next three months and live like a hermit, I have to […]

Wait…what?

The Coach’s Corner Newsletter #30 These paphiopedilums, also known as slipper orchids for their defined pouches, just bloomed over the holidays and we’ve been enjoying their amazing beauty every single day. Once the blooms of this variety of orchids is finished, it will take another year for a spike to emerge where the blooming cycle will […]

What will you release in 2024?

The Coach’s Corner Newsletter #29 The New Year brings a lot of pressure to get it right, this time. Rather than making another set of plans, what would it look like to let go and listen to what you know to be true? If you’re open, I offer one of the most powerful pieces ever […]

Giving or receiving?

The Coach’s Corner Newsletter #28 On the ride home from school this week, my 10 year old grandson wanted to know, Nana, do you like giving or receiving better? When I attempted an answer that used a ‘both-and’ approach – he stopped me. No! You have to choose. Giving or receiving? In that moment, under […]
