How to Make the Hard Things EasierWelcome to August and another great week of summer! I'm back from a life-changing trip to Paris to celebrate my 40th, and my son has been spending the week at Boy Scout Camp, so it's been a great block of t ime for me to refresh and refocus my energies on what matters most to me. It's been so needed! As a leader, every day it seems I am faced with hard things - hard choices, hard conversations, hard situations.. it's exhausting on so many levels. But I've learned some tricks along the way that have helped me stay energized, focused and balanced in dealing with the hard things. I hope that they are helpful to you, and would love to hear your strategies to stay prepared for the hard parts in your life and business.
It’s not a surprise to anyone how quickly the world moves these days. Technology changes daily, or perhaps even more often than that. We have instant access to information, status updates, shopping, news, television, even food! Everywhere I turn, the perceived message is that faster is better. And who doesn’t want more time? If something can be achieved quicker, that would technically mean more time for......what exactly? More information, status updates, shopping, news, TV? Yikes!
