Are Morning Routine's Really that Important?

Uncategorized Dec 03, 2021

One question I'm often asked is, do I really need a morning routine if I'm not a morning person? or Are Habits REALLY that important? 

This week on Beyond The Stethoscope LIVE!  We are talking with Jonah Larkin to explore the importance of developing habits and morning routines and how many habits are TOO many?  

Do we ebb and flow with what works at this moment and how often do we re-evaluate morning routines -- because, let's face it, life shifts and what worked last year, may not serve us this year.  

Join us LIVE for this amazing conversation and to ask your questions in real-time!

What are you made of?

Ever wonder why some people effortlessly accomplish their dreams and some of us are always struggling? 

We see so much discussion around the hustle and grind mentality, but accomplishing our dreams doesn't have to be at the exclusion of all else.  We should and CAN succeed beyond standard norms over the long term WHILE maintaining our wellbeing and positive relationships.  That's the definition of High Performance and what drew me to becoming a certified high-performance coach.  

We've heard a lot about Grit and Resiliency and we've needed it in droves to get through the past few years of this pandemic.  It's a topic you keep asking about and one that I love learning and teaching.  

Our live conversation this week for the Beyond the Stethoscope podcast will center around motivation, inspiration, and resiliency, as we talk with Mike "C-Roc" and learn what's behind his movement called "What, are you made of?" 

This inspired his book Rocket...

innovation Sep 24, 2021

I couldn't be more excited than to have a great conversation with my guest this week on Beyond the Stethoscope Podcast!  

Many of you are aware of my interest and dedication to innovation to improve the lives of people and animals, well, Joshua Budman is doing just that with remote monitoring of diabetes patients and those with chronic illness.  

When I heard this, I thought, WOW! that technology has so many applications in both the human and veterinary health space, how cool would it be to improve our treatment effectiveness by remotely monitoring cats with high blood pressure or our diabetic patients who don't always want to eat...

I'm excited to learn more and see where the conversation goes.  If you'd love to listen in and get your questions answered in real-time, please join us on Tuesday at 1 pm EST.

How to ADD more time!

If you've ever uttered the phrase, "But you don't understand, I just don't have enough time!"

You are not alone. 

It's one of my favorite go-to's when I'm feeling stress and overwhelm and a clue to me that I need to get off the hamster wheel, yet again, get refocused, and get back to the tried and true formulas and equations that have stopped overwhelm dead in its tracks

Are we bending time and space with a crazy mathematical equation? 

No, but that does sound like a fun way to spend a Friday afternoon (don't worry, no calculus is required for this activity!) 

To ADD more time we need to Automate, Delegate, or Delete tasks that aren't bringing us joy, can be delegated for fewer dollars per hour than we currently make, or don't need to be done by anyone.  

Remember the 80/20 rule? 20% of the activities yield 80% of the outcome.  So what are the 20% that you need to keep doing and can you delete the other 80%?  *GASP* 

I get it,...

How to deal with Bullies!

We are speaking with Marilise de Villiers, author of ROAR! How to tame the bully inside and out this week on the BTS podcast. 

Here's your chance to get all of your questions about how to deal with bullies and make sure you aren't one answered LIVE and meet the author.  

Many of us have a story about being bullied or remember a time when, *gasp* we might have been a bully.  

While deployed, I was bullied by a higher-ranking female officer, and it was the single most difficult situation I had to navigate during that year-long deployment. 

It was the one situation that the Army didn't train me on.  

We had extensive training on how to handle weapons systems, I'm now trained in six weapons systems, quite literally "rode shotgun" in a vehicle while deployed, can clear an AK-47 off the battlefield, and was trained in hand-to-hand combat with the enemy.

But what happens when it's your battle buddy that's the bully?  How do we navigate...

How to have more fun!

dreaming friendship fun values Jul 24, 2021

Last year, I invited Aarti Tejuja on the podcast to share a story about shared values and friendship from our youth.  

In the middle of the pandemic, it was the kind of story that rekindled friendships and provided some sense of hope and shared humanity in the world.  

I couldn't be more excited than to announce she'll be on the podcast again on Tuesday, July 27th to share her best tips around how to find more Joy in life and start dreaming again.  

Remember back when we were kids and spent all day laying down in the grass looking up at the clouds with our imaginations running wild.  The possibilities before us for all life could hold? The fun and freedom we had just riding our bikes with the wind in our hair and the sun shining down?

When did that get replaced with the day-to-day rushing from task to task on our never-ending to-do lists? and more importantly, why did we allow that to occur?

So if you want to take a bit of time this summer to...
