So Many Choices, So Little Time

Do you think having choices is bad? I do. Well, having too many choices is bad. It can be paralyzing for a lot of us. Ever to go a restaurant where the menu is the size of War and Peace? When that is the situation how long does it take you to decide what to order?...

The Long Road to Overnight Success

The Tony Awards were this week and for the musical Hadestown, it was a great night.  They had fourteen nominations and won for eight of the categories! One of the award recipients was Anais Mitchell who accepted the award for Best Original Score. Towards the end of...

Be a Tourist Everyday

Last week I mentioned that I was in Portugal attending a conference and that I took a few days to spend in Madrid beforehand, just to experience the city as a tourist.  I am not very familiar with Spain, so while there I stayed curious and asked a lot of questions. I...

The Only Limit is You

I got to spend 4 days with my tribe in Montreat, North Carolina. Montreat is best known for being the home of Billy Graham, a prominent figure in the Christian community. We also stayed in a beautiful house owned by Wade Burns, a civil rights activist. Being...

During my professional life, I have experienced many difficult situations (remember my job in customer service I mentioned this last fall?) Even though I wouldn’t necessarily want to have those experiences again, the wisdom I’ve gained from them is invaluable and I...
