I’ve been cruising through the 4-Hour Workweek – just crushing right along through it – and I’m learning SO much.

People have small dreams, fulfilling dreams, that are often put off for years or never realized at all.

I know “dreams” and “goal-setting” start to feel a little hippy-dippy-lets-go-make-a-vision-board, but think of it as a checklist to getting from point A to point B. You’re awesome and you want to do awesome projects and learn how to do awesome things.

That’s it.

Tim from the 4-Hour Workweek says it’s important to put a three-month deadline on most of these projects.

By setting a three-month deadline, you light a fire in your gut that says, ”The time for this is not later. The time for this is now.” (more…)

A Heart For Any Fate

{painting by Emily Wolfenden}

One of my favorite poems in the world is A Psalm of Life by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. It is just chock full.

The stanza that is catching my heart this week is the last one:

Learn to labor and to wait.  (more…)

Christmas parties are coming up.

Which means small talk is coming up.

Small talk is the actual worst. You both know you’re doing it and you don’t want to keep doing it but you’re not quite sure how to stop doing it.

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Dunkin’ Brands. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

People seem to be traveling everywhere this holiday season.

I have friends and family in Germany, Tobago, Miami, and taking planes, trains, and automobiles for hours on end over the next couple of weeks. And long travel stints usually mean long layovers.

Instead of checking Facebook a hundred times in an hour and stalking people you don’t know on Instagram, here are a few other ways to keep your trip interesting: (more…)
