Why do most adults struggle to meet deadlines? Or maybe you meet them, but at times you find yourself scrambling at the last minute or pulling all-nighters to hit that target date. The reason isn't as guilt-ridden as you may believe. In fact, psychologists have a term for it, and no, it's not "procrastination." And once you understand this phenomenon, you can modify your strategy in order to produce better outcomes without hustling up against the clock. Be sure to watch this week's video to find out more!
I'm a huge fan of routines - they're a significant contributor to remaining efficient and effective. But what about those times when things feel monotonous?

Over the past year or so, you may have held off on asking for a promotion or raise, but now you feel like Samuel L. Jackson in The Negotiator. You may have held off on special requests because it felt selfish during a time of crisis, but now you're looking to Julia Roberts from Erin Brockovich for strength. You may have felt comfortable behind your computer screen, but now you're preparing like Mel Gibson in Braveheart to give a rousing presentation to an important group. Whether you're channeling Samuel, Julia, or Mel, you may need a dose of confidence! While it's common knowledge that confidence is one of the keys to having success in these situations, what's not so common knowledge is whether or not you have what it takes to actually be confident. In this video I share the foundation required so that confidence is no longer an illusion, but instead, a reality for you!

Loss of sleep, increased stress, falling short in other areas? Find out how to break free from sentencing yourself to over-commitment!

March is one of my favorite months of the year. My daughter, Reese, would say it's because it's her birthday month (LOL!). While this is of course true, it's also because it's Women's History Month.
