What does it mean to get out of your comfort zone? Well, it actually means to do something different than you’re used to doing that may not feel comfortable.  Sometimes it’s just the anticipation of making a change that brings on that feeling of discomfort. It’s easy and comfortable to continue to do things the way you’ve always done them no matter how your situation changes or how it makes you feel.

This year may have started out well for some, but ended not so well for most.  The tentacles of this pandemic changed our lives in so many ways.  We had to get creative in order to survive, literally.

Early on, as the cases started to rise at alarming rates, the mandate came down for businesses to close that were not deemed essential, to try to stop the spread of the virus. This caused a cascade of issues mostly related to businesses closing, at first temporarily, [...]

4 Strategies to Lessen A Perfectionist Mindset

There are however, people that do this very thing which causes unhealthy issues for them. The actual definition of a perfectionist, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary is [...]

A Small Change Can Make a Big Impact

It’s a new year and a lot of people make resolutions or create goals. Whether it’s a resolution or a goal, the key is not to make them so big that you won’t achieve what you set out to do.  Make one small change for each resolution or goal and over time those small changes will bring you closer to the result you want to see. Making a small change is not going to magically right things overnight. There are no quick fixes in life. Whatever brought you to the feeling that something isn’t working for you didn’t happen suddenly.  [...]

Want Different Results? Take Action to Try Something Different

Are you stuck in a rut? Do you want different results? As we go along life’s path, things change and the routines and processes that worked so well for us in the past are not working today. Maybe you need to take action to try something different then what you’ve been doing. If you think about it, it makes sense. When you continue doing the same things but don’t get the results you want, a change in the actions you take is required. When I get stuck in an aspect of my life, the phrase that Albert Einstein made popular [...]
