Navigating the Midlife Crossroads

Laura_Teaching_Skiing_On_Highlands_Lift

I just reread my New Year’s post, and while it ended on a positive note, it was definitely a bit of a downer. I was excited that things were trending upwards, but also afraid that they wouldn’t stay that way. What calamities were still to come?! But I’ve now gotten through February, and things have indeed been getting better and better. As I’ve discussed with my therapist, I keep thinking, “ah, now I’m back to the way I used to be!”… and then a few days later, I feel better still! I hesitate to say I’m totally better, as I recognize that …

My_Consulting_Christmas_Photo

Weekend of December 7-8 This was a super short weekend for me… so hopefully that means I can crank out this recap and get caught up on writing these 🙂 I did get home on Thursday night, but my Friday was absolutely packed – first I hosted First Friday for my town, then was off to a dentist appointment, and then I finally was able to flip over to do work the rest of the day. I used to make a point of always wrapping up work by 5pm on Fridays (many other days, I work till 9pm or 10pm, …

Weekend Recap: Sick or Lazy? / Workouts Lately

SheTech_Colorado_2019

Weekend of February 9-10 This is going to be a pretty short weekend recap… but after Friday night, there’s not a lot to report! Friday was a very big day for me at work. I’ve spent the last few months planning for SheTech Colorado, a one-day conference for high school girls to get them excited about careers in STEM, and Friday it all came to fruition! I was on tap to give some welcoming remarks in the beginning (right before our lieutenant governor!), then host a small group workshop on facial recognition technology before lunch, and finally judge the afternoon …

How Much Work Is Enough Work?

This week, I’m facilitating my company’s Discover program, a reward for our newly promoted senior associates that helps with leadership development and also gives them a lot of personal coaching to help identify their individual goals and priorities. I attended Discover myself five years ago, and this is now my third time coming back as the lead “orchestrator” (basically an emcee) of the event. No matter how many times I attend the sessions, though, I always take away something new. (To read more about what I’ve learned at past Discover sessions, see here, here, here, here, and here) Yesterday, speaker Jullien Gordon talked about …

March Goal Progress: Week 3 Check In

What_Is_A_Management_Consultant

I have been really overwhelmed lately, and just generally stressed on all fronts. It didn’t help that last week I got incredibly behind on sleep, which made me feel like a zombie all week. I’ve been reading a lot of articles lately on the importance of sleep and exactly what happens when you go without it (see my Links I Love yesterday). But one of the most compelling sources of sleep information was not an article, but this podcast episode from Chalene Johnson, which discussed how the brain gets impacted by lack of sleep. The TLDR (TLDListen?) is that sleep deprivation …
