Overeating? You may be burned out at work

It was another crazy busy week at work. I always feel like when I am in the physical office there is more to do, or maybe I just feel less in control about when to do it.  I had a lot of need to happen moments this week between client meetings and presentations, and a […][...]

“No” is the New “Yes”

More than ever we are prisoners of the urgent. We react to what’s right in front of us, whether it truly matters or not. Prioritizing requires reflection, reflection requires time. And, well you just don’t have the luxury of that now do you? We are so busy trying to keep up that we don&#[...]

Finally Answering the Feedback Question

One of the hallmarks of a millenial is that we don’t take feedback very well.  We roll our eyes, stare blankly at the person or just flat out don’t listen. And when someone asks how we would prefer to get feedback there is no response. Literally we can’t articulate what they want.[...]

Should I Stay Or Should I Go Now

I’m one of those people that works late. I typically start my day (even when I was working IN the office) no later than 8:20 a.m. and often don’t get finish up until after 7:30 p.m. First off, let me say I am NOT complaining, it is the nature of my job, which I love. […][...]

Managing Accounts as a Defensive Specialist

I’ve been a little MIA lately, between work exploding and wedding finalization I was just a wee-bit overwhelmed. During that time, I got a pep talk from a supervisor who I have to say has an uncanny ability to pick the right words and truly light a fire under you.  The pep talk got me [&helli[...]

Yoga Teachings that Apply to Work

I started taking yoga regularly about four years ago. Not only did I actually start sleeping better, but I started applying some of what I learned to my working life. Every day is different and is its own day—One of the things that the yoga instructors like to say is that no two days on […][...]

Gracefully Accepting Feedback

We’re all a little sensitive when it comes to receiving feedback, especially when it is not all positive. Some experience feedback as pure criticism, and don’t want to hear it. Others see it as emotionally crushing. Still others only want to hear praise. For me, the problem isn’t that I don’[...]

The Path to Creativity

Most of our lives consist of habits. We walk/drive to walk along the same route. In meetings, we sit in the same seat and at restaurants, we order the same dish.  Generally, if you do something right and well the first time it is a good idea to do it that way again. Unfortunately, that […][...]

There’s Irony in that Achievement

I have been struggling at work. I can’t explain what is wrong and I can’t figure out how to fix it. In May’s Harvard Business Review Thomas J. DeLong, a professor at Harvard Business School, and Sara DeLong, his daughter and a psychiatrist in San Francisco, discuss how being a high achiever ca[...]

You Don’t Have to Wear Pants!

I am at the moment a mixture of nerves and excitement. My fiancé recently received a job offer in D.C. A really good one, for a good firm that is going to give him a lot of great learning opportunities. That pretty much means I have to go with him. (happily, I swear I am […][...]
