No More Maybe – Commit!

In my firm’s Denver office, most of us travel four days a week to our clients. We are then are given the option to either work from home or come into the local office on Fridays… and I think you can guess which option is most popular 🙂 So as the connectivity chair for the Rockies region, it’s a bit of an uphill battle trying to get organize events and incent people to attend. Today, I sent out an invite for a lunch prior to a mandatory all-hands meeting. We’ve recently switched from Lotus Notes to Gmail (hallelujah!), and I’m still getting …

Whatever Works For You


Earlier this week, I read a great article from Ramit Sethi – Being Weird and Okay With It. Specifically, I loved this quote: “One of the other panelists said something that did NOT go over well. I found it fascinating. This guy is a successful entrepreneur. He was talking about how, as he’s gotten busier, he’s had to change how he maintains his relationships. He’s realized he’d rather nurture his existing relationships than take random coffee meetings or meet with random people. …So he finally figured out what works for him: He created a “Top 50 Favorites” list of contacts on …

Do you think they have certainty and a feeling of reaching perfection? Not a chance. There is not one of us alive, not me or anyone else, who ever feels certainty about their purpose or path. If they do, they’re …

Making Time for My Friendships

St. Patrick's Day House Party

This post is coming to you from 30,000 feet, flying somewhere over Oklahoma on my way home. I mention this context because I haven’t been home in two weeks, and I’m so eager to see my friends and make the most of my time. I had forgotten just how stressful it is on me and my relationships when I’m away from home most of the week, and that was exacerbated when I didn’t go home last weekend at all. (Not that I would trade my weekend in Sonoma for anything!) This morning, I read a really interesting article about how Having Too Many Friends …

Bottled water by my bedside


Before I get into the rest of my Sonoma trip, I wanted to do a quick post on a new habit I’ve picked up. Remember how I wrote about a first domino being something that creates a big impact? Well, I’ve stumbled upon a new “first domino” that is really helping me get healthy. Everyone says that drinking water is a quick way to improve your skin, managing your weight, and just generally improve your health. (Here’s a Greatist article on 12 reasons to drink more water). In the past, I’ve tried to count my glasses of water or otherwise increase …
