2019 Goal Review – Good & Not-So-Good

One thing I've learned in the last few years is that the whole review-your-process isn't just some corporate way to hold more meetings and generate more memos. It really does help me be intentional with my time and energy. The goals, I couldn't control. The steps I took? I can and did. It's important to … Continue reading 2019 Goal Review – Good & Not-So-Good

Let Your Fish Get Big

When I took up writing again after my diagnosis, my goal was like a goldfish. It was little and messy and cute, and I was drawn to it by an impulse. I wanted to be published.

Saturday Show & Tell 12/3/16

December is one of my favorite months, but probably not for the reason you think. I'm not a big holiday/tradition person, so I'm a bit baffled by Christmas carols, gift wrap, and the whole lot of it.
