Daniel Goldman, the psychologist and journalist who made the concept of emotional intelligence popular, wrote an article 15 years ago in the Harvard Business Review, “Leadership That Gets Results. He suggested there are six essential leadership styles and coaching is one of them that has shown positive impact on performance, climate (culture) and the bottom line. However, it was the least used leadership style, which mean leaders contributed to they don’t have time in their high pressure economy for the slow and tedious work of teaching people and helping them grow” (The Coaching Habit, by Michael Hungary Stanier). 15 years ago is a long time so I know companies have shifted to have more one on one coaching, however there still needs to be more to help with accountability, motivation, encouragement, and facilitating the answers that are in the room.

Happy weekend everybody! Shelter from the sun and keep cool.
Slow down... just breathe.
It’s important to remember to take time for yourself. I’m not very good at that. Maybe falling on ice was a blessing in disguise. My body is still working to recover. Got some steroids today and hoping the inflammation goes down soon so I can run. I was advised to take 5 days off. We will see how my body feels during the next couple of days.
But tonight, a bubble bath and face mask were in order! Doctor’s orders. OK, just soaking in the tub was advised. But, I figured why not make the most of it! 💅💋🥂
Gone are days of hard work, saving and buying something. Everything can be bought on credit, or interest free in advance and pay it off as you go.
I recently did a short fast for a medicine ceremony and I became really hungry. When I did eat the food tasted so good that I scoffed it down too fast and got a belly ache.
It really showed me how little control I have over some of my body urges still. I love food and have always enjoyed eating good food, and lots of it. But it mirrored my money thing. Buying things right here right now, rather than working for a little while saving the cash and going to purchase it outright. I don't really allow myself to get really hungry very often, I eat very soon after I have a craving, especially now that I don't work in construction anymore. At least then I couldn't eat until lunch. But now I work online I can eat whenever, and I do. It's created some really bad habits.
Sex is the same. If we go straight for the climax we don't get to have all the fun that comes beforehand.
It's the anticipation that brings great satisfaction. As with anything. Saving money to buy something you really want. Cooking something delicious with love as opposed to buying takaway. Or taking your time with foreplay before you penetrate.
I've found that for myself that's actually where the most pleasure is. It makes the final destination more worthy and you become more satisfied and grateful. It goes for everything, sex, food, buying something. If I get what I want straight away, I don't really enjoy it as much as if I had worked for it or been teased by it.
I challenge you, next time you want something that you would normally get straight away, stop, take a second, and just slow yourself down. See what happens when you don't get what you want straight away! What are the feelings that arise in you?

My phone died on Christmas. I'll readily admit that it has been kinda nice to be unplugged (except the part of running an online business on the old ipad that works at the speed of dial-up 😂). But no worries, a Pickle has got my back. She made a new phone for me today out of Perler beads. She just wanted to confirm that I was ok with a square home button as opposed to the regular round one. Absolutely. I love it. So if you need me, you can reach me in the Dark (yet, brightly beaded) Ages on my new phone, humming to the tune of dial-up. 😂 .
What are your kids' favorite supplies for creative makings? We use sooooo many of these iron-melt beads here!

Some days I wake up with the best intentions of getting so much done and then it doesn't happen and by noon, I get completely overwhelmed.
So much excitement this week, watching my team grow and preparing for launch tomorrow.... But sometimes we need to stop, collect your thoughts, and keep ourselves grounded.
Whatever you have going on...take care of you and the rest will fall in place!
Nothing quite like a little family time!!! #slowdown
The work week is over and I am so ready to hibernate away from the cold for the next two days. Give me all the tea, all the blankets, and all the Netflix.

I really like here! A small colorful town near sea. Life here is really slow... The houses in the alley are cute and exquisite. Just stay here and enjoy the peace a bit🍃

Still over here breathing and rejuvenating;) I want to on purpose slow down and enjoy all the things. Makers out there... you get me right?! 🤗What was the last thing you did to refresh or rejuvenate? What’s life giving to you? Does dream big and slow down go together? 😜 that’s what I want!! Today and every day. Gratitude is where I will begin. This last year the amount of jewelry I produced and you guys purchased was mind blowing!! I had no idea that was even possible!! I’m soooo grateful for the support and love! I think I’m finally getting the picture. So with all the love in my heart I’m saying the hugest THANK YOU! Stay tuned for all the new things that are in my head and heart waiting to get out✨ 😘

H E M M E D in. The feeling all four of our family members felt when we were rushing, flinging and living for the weekends and vacations.
When our kids openly pined for snippets of less frenetic, structured time, we knew shit needed to shift.
Why are we all okay with being way too busy? I used to feel a rush of adrenaline, dopamine (aka adrenals working to the max) when I added more PRODUCTIVE things to my ‘list’. I would (repeatedly) allow my body to completely break down from sleep deficit, low level and constant stress and carve out zero time to connect with myself. It a nutshell: I was in reaction mode.
And all this didn’t just stay contained with me. My kids would feel my swirl vortex and react in a multitude of wonky ways: unusual acts of attention seeking, closing off, feeling anxious. Small blips of behaviours that amounted to me noticing something was up.
Slowing shit right down. Pausing often. Sinking ourselves into life wherever we may be, learning lessons from global cultures (woowee we have much to learn about chilling from our Laos friends🙏🏻). Being bored (although that rarely happens cause our list of interests is going through the roof), and having plenty of time with ourselves to climb random walls for no reason. It’s like the magic pill we were hunting for.
Travelling and living a nomadic life is not a forever state for our family. But it sure is a reset button. While I don’t think everyone I know wants to take a year to explore the world, I would beg to guess most people would benefit from it...and most people I know could find ways to swing it.

I was just reminded to slow down....
make irrational decisions
make a disoriented mind
make slurred words
make a disorganized schedule
makes restless days, nights
misses all the flavors
misses memorable moments
......So, today, and each day, slow down.

Spent some quality time cleaning up my plants post storm...post holidays. Feels so good to slow down and tune into nature. Clearing out dead leaves making space for the new. #plants #nature #slowdown
