On our shelves: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

Do you ever become super irritated at ridiculously trivial things, like dead TV remote batteries or that short stoplight by your house? Most readers may offer a guilty smirk at this moment, but the uncomfortable truth is that most of us struggle with similar irritations each day. Negative, unproductive reactions can be controlled — even eliminated! — by caring less.

Living YOUR best life starts with making time for YOU

Taking time for yourself, or what a lot of people are recently calling “self-care”, isn’t a new idea and it also needs to be something that we think of constantly, not just when we’re overwhelmed. (It’s also not just for women, guys.)

Welcome to New York

James Potter loves New York City — I think it’s because brunch lasts most of the day or it’s where Lin-Manuel Miranda created “Hamilton.” But he tells me that’s not it. “There’s nowhere in the world like New York to test yourself,” he says.

We’re in an age where becoming professionals who practice contemplation is more important than ever. In the midst of all the activity and craziness around us, we have to learn to become more thoughtful and reflective about our thinking and feelings to lead more meaningful lives.

Why you can't let comparison steal your joy

Why you can't let comparison steal your joy

March 14, 2019

It’s a natural instinct to compare yourself to other people, from when you were very young to now. Does that kid have better toys? Did Aaron get a higher score on that test? Why didn’t I get accepted to that college too? I just got a new job, but my friend still has a better one.

We are forced to solve problems in every area of our life: at home, at work, and everywhere in between. But many of us don’t solve problems effectively. Maybe we don’t fully understand the problem, we only have a few solutions, or we don’t reflect and improve before investing time and/or money into an answer.

Loyal guardian or entertaining optimist?  The ancient wisdom of the Enneagram explained

Loyal guardian or entertaining optimist? The ancient wisdom of the Enneagram explained

February 28, 2019

Over the last few months, I’ve been seeing the word “Enneagram” pop up all over my Instagram feed. People credited it with making them better partners, changing the way they dealt with their kids, and helping them understanding who they were. There are books, there are blogs, there are really expensive courses you can take. People are really into this thing.

Why I chose to work smarter, not harder

Why I chose to work smarter, not harder

February 21, 2019

For most of my life, I have been the type of person who makes lists. I used to write things on my to-do list that I had already done, just so I’d have something to cross off. It feels good to put that line through an item, to know that you’ve accomplished something. But when I got a new job, this wasn’t the way the office worked.

From failure to frustration: how to transform your mindset

From failure to frustration: how to transform your mindset

February 7, 2019

Making true positive change in your life is tough! This kind of progress isn’t always measurable, but if you’re struggling for results, it may have more to do with you than you may think. Your mindset – or the attitude you have toward something in your life – might need a bit of tweaking to get you into a place of transformational change.
