How to Set Goals for 2022 and Review 2021

I was inspired this morning at 2:30 AM - Thank you Henry the Kitten for the early morning wake-up call and the zero dark thirty walk with Dakota (my 12 yr old husky.) Some days, aren't so different from being in the military :-)

I was going to publish an interview this week, but instead, I was inspired to record this podcast episode for you based on two things.  A statement that I heard yesterday that stuck with me in a weird way, and a note that a friend wrote in a holiday card.

We are going to talk about newton’s laws today too – because these two objects interacted to create this motion!


One of the most common things I hear from my high performance coaching clients is that they feel stuck, trapped in a profession that they no longer love and they aren’t quite sure what to do.  They have anxiety at work interacting with co-workers, making, literally, life and death decisions, struggling to communicate effectively with clients, and just not...

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...

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,...
