Ranting on Facebook Is Not Your Superpower

Do you want to create positive change in your life, the lives of others, and the world around you? I guarantee ranting on Facebook is the wrong approach.

What Will You Focus On This Year?

This past weekend — New Year’s weekend — my Facebook feed was filled with post after negative post that said things like:

“Good riddance, 2016!”
“Can’t wait to leave 2016!”
“2016, you suck.”
“Hang on just a few more hours, Betty White, 2016 is almost over.” (Ok, that last one was pretty funny).

It seemed unanimous that 2016 was the WORST YEAR EVER.

11 of My Favorite Productivity Tools

I always love it when people share their productivity tools. So, I thought we should build a list together! I’ll start with my 11 most favorite tools.

Not one, but TWO neato things to share!

It’s the week before Christmas
and all through the office
everyone is either cramming to get work done
or getting really, really good at Candy Crush.

That’s why I made my post extra special with TWO neato things to share…

Ask Me Anything!

It’s that time of year when I feel like being extra chatty, so ask me a question. Serious or silly. Anything goes.

Throw Gratitude Out The Window This Year (And Do THIS Instead).

It’s time to take a deep breath. This week seems like the perfect time. It’s Thanksgiving in America after all. It’s a week where we typically pause for at least 30 seconds to be grateful before plowing face first into a gigantic plate of turkey and pumpkin pie.

Personally, I think we need to throw the idea of gratitude out the window this year.

Instead, let’s focus on GREATitude.

How will your life be different tomorrow (you know, post-election)?

Today we’ll elect the next President of The United States. It could be the man half the country hates. Could be the woman half the country hates. Either way, it does seem like tomorrow might feel like a very different America. So, what are you going to do differently tomorrow if your candidate wins today?

You’re Not Alone

Here’s what I have learned: Even when I feel most alone, I’m almost always surrounded by countless people who feel exactly the same way I do. The only way I’ll know for sure is to be brave enough — vulnerable enough — to share my thoughts and feelings with others.

Stop Trying To Be So Epic And Legendary

I pay a lot of attention to personal & professional development, leadership, entrepreneurship, marketing, and more. Everywhere I look — from books to blogs to podcasts to live events — someone is always encouraging me to “be legendary”, “live your legend”, or “do epic shit.” I’ll admit, I bought into that idea for awhile. But the more I pursued it, the more unhappy I became.
