Forgive me.

From Volume 13, Issue 4:I’m as sure as I can be that, in one of the hundreds of these missives I’ve cranked out over the past 12 years, I’ve offered a concept or an idea or an opinion that simply didn’t agree with how you see the world.

Do you like being angry?

From Volume 13, Issue 3:Do you like being angry? Is that what you really want? I know I don’t. How about insecure? Frustrated? Jealous? Guilty? At the risk of sounding cavalier about it, why don’t you just change that feeling?

Heading into the Holidays

From Volume 12, Issue 11: Here we go again—it’s November already! Where did the year go?!

We have that lineup of annual no-holds-barred holidays facing us like a gauntlet ready to mete out seasonal punishment in two-months-long serial order.

Perception and Reality

From Volume 12, Issue 10:Pure science, it is said, is always looking for errors in its interpretations.
When I was a youngster, Pluto was a planet, and the atom was the smallest particle.
In the 15th century, the Earth was both flat and the center of the universe.

How Are Your Relation Ships?

From Volume 12, Issue 9:If your connection to another person were compared to ships, how would they be described? Consider the connections you have or have had or hope to have—this should be a fun exercise!

Can’t, Haven’t, Won’t

From Volume 12, Issue 8:In my coaching practice over the years, I’ve heard people say “I can’t” innumerable times. It’s frequently what gets the coaching process underway.
