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.

Rock star. Superstar. They both sound pretty good, don’t they? Without thinking about it too much, is there one that appeals to you more? Are they even different?

Ask yourself,

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

December 6, 2018

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.

Worrying about whether or not other people like you can be an anxiety-ridden waste of time. You’re never going to be everyone’s favorite person, so why do so many of us keep trying to change what makes us, us?

The secret to lagom: the Swedish art of living a balanced, healthy life

The secret to lagom: the Swedish art of living a balanced, healthy life

October 25, 2018

For a long time, I was mildly curious in hygge, the Danish concept of recognizing a moment as special or charming. I kept meaning to look it up and find out more, but never did. Instead, while browsing the shelves at a local Target, I saw a book called Lagom.

Telling strangers you’re an accountant, and other ways to find humility

Telling strangers you’re an accountant, and other ways to find humility

October 11, 2018

I believe that the universe always gives what I need if I just know where to look. And being stereotyped as “not cool” is just one way we accountants have been gifted the tools for a successful and happy life! That gift is humility.
