Resolutions and Recommitment: How to Create Accountability in 2017

January 1, 2017 Posted by: Rob Commodari

Why don’t New Year’s resolutions last? Usually, the answer lies in a lack of accountability. There’s noone to coach the resolution-makers along the way to stay committed to their goals. So perhaps a resolution this year would be coming up with a plan to create personal accountability in 2017.

The Year in Review: An Inventory of Wins, Losses, “Ahas” and Gratitude

December 23, 2016 Posted by: Rob Commodari

As 2016 quickly comes to an end, it’s time to look at the year in review and to take inventory of what happened over the past 365 days. Every year starts out with ambitions and goals; maybe even a New Year’s resolution or two.  Along the way, however, many of us fail to track what we have accomplished or experienced, a task that is vital to our growth.

Why We Get So Much Done Around the Holidays: Because We Have To

December 1, 2016 Posted by: Rob Commodari

It’s that time of year again — when time warps and we start operating at a higher level of efficiency. It’s the time when we start getting pumped about “getting it done.” It happens every year. We get into mid- to late-October and everyone starts saying, “I can’t believe that Thanksgiving and Christmas are just weeks away.” We act as though something is going to slow down time but it doesn’t.

The Law of Nature: Connect With Spirit, Achieve New Growth

September 19, 2016 Posted by: Rob Commodari

Every time I have been inside the Jessup Correctional Institution to speak, I have always felt moved by the spirit. Yes, the guys who I am speaking to have committed crimes, and the general consensus on the outside is to not care about what happens to them. They’ve sealed their fates. They did the crime, now they must do the time. But when I’m there, I feel a sensation, one that leads me to conclude that these guys can connect with spirit.

How to Find Balance in Life: The Art of Continuously Moving

August 24, 2016 Posted by: Rob Commodari

You have heard others say it thousands of times in your life, or you have said it yourself: “I want to have balance in my life.” What does having balance really mean? A simple dictionary definition defines balance as “a state in which different things occur in equal or proper amounts or have an equal or proper amount of importance.” If you step back and look at the complete picture, however, finding balance in life may seem overwhelming or impossible. It’s a constant work in progress.
