  • how i cultivate creativity

    Creativity is in being. And if you’re not connected to your beingness, life will always feel harder than it needs to. Time and time again, when life feels really, really hard (and it does sometimes), it’s because I’m blocked from my creativity. I can only see the thing I’m looking at one way, when what […]

  • magic questions (for self-realization)

    Sometimes something is bugging you, but you can’t quite figure out what it is. Exactly. You circle around it, but it’s in the centre and obscured. Maddeningly so. When this is the case, a lot of times that means that the answer lies in being asked the right question(s) that reveal you to you. And […]

  • what’s your soul’s story?

    The soul. It’s this “thing” that’s not a thing at all. And it’s called many, many names that make it personal and meaningful to the human that the being-ness of you resides in. I don’t claim to be able to explain to you what a soul is exactly. But, I’d be lying if I said […]

  • the gift of failure – and how to unwrap it

    We grow up wondering if we’re ever going to feel “it.” You know, maybe if we’re lucky, we’ll stumble upon that illusive feeling. What feeling do I speak of exactly? The feeling of inner worthiness. The one we refer to as being “good enough.” In pursuit of this feeling without a set criteria, we create […]

  • a more beautiful career means learning to ask a more beautiful question

    Honestly, I feel really sad (and sometimes mad too) that most people don’t know what a beautiful question is or how to ask one nor how the beauty of a question can dramatically alter the course of one’s life. (In fact, I am painfully aware of how you rob yourself of the kind of experiences […]

  • 40 ways to create more career possibility for yourself especially when you think it’s not possible

    Think of these 40 as a starter kit. The purpose of this list isn’t to judge yourself or others for their (or your own) method. Though you you know and I know that your ego will do that anyway. Your ego doesn’t like hearing that possibility exists when it thinks there are none and certainly […]

  • a ‘what if’ (positive possibility) exercise for career bliss

    The one rule: Bask in the glow of your potential. The one instruction: Read the completed exercise aloud to yourself (and/or a loving audience) as often as you wish. The one consideration: Give yourself permission to re-write as you evolve your consciousness and self-concept. You don’t wake up the same every day – so keep […]

  • 9 writing prompts to help you figure out what’s not working in your career

    I once interviewed Lynda Monk and in our interview she said something that I saw for the first time hidden in plain view. It made something that I usually do seem and feel different. Before I tell you what she said, I’m going to metaphorically press “pause” for a moment and tell you about a […]

  • your most meaningful career plan ever (as a poem)

    Your career isn’t a job title – in fact, a job title is just packaging to say how you spend your day. A focus on the packaging keeps you away from meaningful career planning. So, let’s quickly plan your career. And I do mean quickly. Get ready to write it down and keep it in […]

  • career + life wisdom from a 5 year old (that you can actually use now)

    You don’t have to wait until you’re old to get it. You can have it right now. It’s something that will make all the difference in the world. It’s your own wisdom. And it comes from seeing yourself as you are from an accepting place. Not as you would like to be, not as you […]
