There is a time for everything

When you create, when you work on a project, when you organize an event, when you raise your kids, when you write a song, when you start a business, when you do anything in life really, there is a time for everything. That everything can be anything: the inspiration, the vision, the next step, the right supplier, the ideal milestone, the perfect school, that amazing riff, that excellent accountant... That everything can only come when all elements are ready for it. What elements are needed for i [...]

SW SW SW SW is an acronym my first life coach taught me. It has to do with not taking things too seriously and the stories we tell ourselves. But let me start at the beginning. The other day, someone was saying to me that some people find my newsletter/blog laughable. My immediate reaction was: I am being attacked, I need to find out who it is and attack back or at least defend myself. I basically took what that person said personally. Then I stopped and breathed. Because that reaction usually [...]

A mess is a message

The other day I wrote a post about the power of slowing down, because when we're at full speed, we don't hear life's messages anymore that we are supposed to hear. Let's dive a little deeper into those messages. What do messages look like: You yell at your kids more often than you should. You do not sleep well. Your back hurts a lot. You get a lot of headaches.

Why motivation is not the problem

As a life coach, I often hear people say they lack motivation. They have the best goals: they want to live healthier, get organized at home or at work, start a new business or project. These goals are things they WANT. And you would say that if you want something really bad, it should be easy to get motivated right? Wrong.
