It’s the week of Thanksgiving here in the United States, so “Happy Thanksgiving” if you are based in the US!
Of course, Thanksgiving makes me think of “giving thanks” (of course!) which brings up the idea of gratitude.
As a lawyer or legal...
Here in Minnesota, it’s the peak of the fall colors. We are very proud of our beautifully colored fall leaves, so much so that we have a “Fall Color Finder” so you know where to go on your fall weekends to check out the best autumn leaves in the state. Right now,...
Sometimes we all need a little boost, especially this time of year.
It seems like most people are dealing with a host of demands right now:
Welcoming new students or associates
Planning fall programming
Preparing for 2024 budgets
New billing years around the corner
Fall or annual...
Happy Monday! I hope you had a terrific weekend!
It’s hard to believe that summer is basically over. Many of you with school-age kids have already taken your “first day of the new school year” pictures and put your kids on the bus for their first day of school.
Wow - how is it the last day of July? I can’t believe we are in the waning days of summer. It feels like it just started.
I had so many plans for things I was going to accomplish this summer.
I was going to:
- Have a clean, organized basement.
- Lose a few extra pounds that had crept on over...
It’s been a long string of hot days here in Minnesota. We aren’t known for our heat here in the Great North, so 2-3 weeks of 85+ degree days is pretty amazing (and it makes “July babies” like me very happy)!
This summer, I’ve been doing quite a bit of teaching and...
I hope your first couple of weeks of summer are off to a great start and that you are settling into your summer routine.
Do you have a summer routine? Does it look a little different than your “usual” routine - either by necessity (kids off for the summer) or design (just wanting a...
(I took this for you at our cabin last weekend when I got up to watch the sunrise.)
It’s the last week of school in our home. Here in Minnesota, we start school after Labor Day, so we don’t end until the second week of June. I really don’t mind it - it’s nice to get in...
I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
If you have kids and they are out of school, I hope your summer is off to a great start. I know (from years of personal experience) that this can be a particularly crazy time of year, and I hope that you are walking through it as gracefully as...
How are we in the last few days of May? Is it just me, or has May simply flown by?
May is always a full month - I’ve learned that over many years, but I usually forget until it sneaks up on me. So when I find myself more overwhelmed than usual this time of year, I have to remind myself that...
Hello and Happy Monday!
The last few days have been a whirlwind for me - and it got me thinking of you and something you might resonate with.
Last Thursday, I flew from Minnesota (my home base) to Florida. On Friday, I spoke four times at a partner retreat, then I flew to California to speak at...
April is Stress Awareness Month, so I wanted to spend a little time thinking with you about stress so you can be more aware of it (notice that it’s stress “awareness” month, not just stress “management” month.)
What is the definition of stress?
There are several...
