Most of us go through our days checking off things we had set out to do when the day began and very seldom think about the day itself. We are doers.
Thirteen years ago, I was introduced to “contemplative prayer.” It’s a form of meditation where one tries to clear the mind of the spinning thoughts. It’s a nearly impossible task with 50,000 thoughts moving through our brains every day.... Read More
I recently went to an event in San Diego called “Peak Experience.” It’s an annual event where approximately 500 real estate agents get together for a personal growth experience. I have been to this event maybe a dozen times and each year the material is different. Some years, I may have had a breakthrough while right there in the moment. Other times, it might be a few weeks or months before something strikes me from the event as the “aha” takeaway. The theme of this year’s event was wrapped around […]... Read More
“I’m getting ready to put my house on the market. What do I need to do to get it to sell?” It is a question I’m asked a lot by clients and prospective clients.

But can we be grateful for the taste of humble pie when we receive it? […]... Read More
I recently had a conversation with a group of business people and the topic of discussion was why some people excel to a greater degree than others. Is it talent or know-how or training or a gift? Those are all helpful assets to have when trying to excel, but the reason why some people succeed to a greater degree than others comes from something more basic than that.... Read More
I recently went through the excruciating pain of kidney stones. How bad are kidney stones? So bad. You’ve probably heard stories about how severe the pain is. Many women attest that nothing hurts more than giving birth to a child (or should I say the labor pains that come with the experience of giving birth to a child), but doctors and other professionals I’ve spoken to over the years have said that the pain of kidney stones is eerily close to the pain a woman feels in labor. I don’t pretend […]... Read More
