The Transparency of Making Choices

I’m on my way back from France – and I didn’t even write a blog post while there about what I was up to! I had some vendor workshops in Nice, so got to fly over and spend a few days in those. It was kind of a grueling schedule, what with the time change and work meetings/events going until 11pm or midnight every day, so it really felt like a whirlwind. I am exhausted now! My flights out to Nice were long and stressful, in part because two of my four flights had mechanical issues! After a particularly long …

Setting a Deadline on Tubing to Work

Tube_To_Work_Day

Today I headed to work in a somewhat unusual way. You’ve heard of National Bike to Work Day, right? Well, Boulder takes that a step further – today was the 8th annual Tube to Work Day! Except… that’s actually not me in the picture. That’s just some random girl who happens to be my exact doppelganger! (And it freaks me out every time I look at that picture and still think she looks exactly like me.) Except that I don’t own those sneakers or those pants or that sweater and I did not, in fact, tube to work today. I …

Sponsored Giveaway: Working on Balance and Not Sweating the Small Stuff

Laura with Lawnmower

On Friday, I led a women’s book club for my firm where we read The Confidence Code, by Katty Kay and Claire Shipman. I had already read the book before, but like Lean In, it’s the kind of book you can read again and again and get new insights each time based on where you are in your life. The discussion was outstanding, and also really thought-provoking. For example, we talked about the relationship between self-esteem and confidence, and whether they go together or if you can have one without the other. One of the fun and personal parts of …

Favorite TED Talks of January

I know it took me a while to post my New Year’s resolutions this year! However, my resolution to watch a TED Talk every day is one that I didn’t write about immediately but have been doing pretty solidly since the end of December. It’s been so interesting to start my day learning something new! You can view all of the TED talks I’ve watched on this Google spreadsheet (along with some notes about what I learned or my favorite quotes); however, I wanted to take a minute to call out my favorite ones this month. The very first TED …

An Unscheduled Weekend of Mishaps

Flat Tire

This was kind of a weekend of mishaps – in large part due to some really unstructured time management on my part. On Friday night, I was supposed to meet up with a friend for dinner. Unfortunately, on Thursday night, I had gotten less than two hours of sleep – partly the result of me refusing to give up on a social activity that night even though I had work to do, and partly because… there was just so much work to do! All week I hadn’t been sleeping enough, so Friday morning I regretfully texted my friend to cancel …
