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.

Ask yourself,

Ask yourself, "What's the best that could happen?"

Society has a checklist of things we’re expected to do — graduate high school, go to college, find a job, get married, etc. And many of us feel the need to check off the boxes on that list before we can say we’re successful.

After finishing up with a client project at Siegfried, I found myself with a little more free time. To make the most of that (and the fact that Siegfried supports our community service efforts), I logged onto Hands on Charlotte, an organization I already volunteer with, and searched their calendar of events.

Thank you really is magic

Thank you really is magic

November 22, 2018

Until a few years ago, I placed myself solidly in the “Christmas is the best holiday of the year” camp. For me, Thanksgiving was a stop on the way to Cookieville and Christmas Tree Town. But, as the promise of new toys became less interesting, I realized that Thanksgiving has its own kind of magic. It’s slow and subtle, but Thanksgiving reminds us all to stop and say thank you. To be grateful for what we have and what others give us. (And of course, to eat lots of mashed potatoes.)
