Travel a Path Free of Overwhelm

In Business, Leadership & Life...

The holiday season brings with it substantial increases in demands on your time, energy and money. During these hectic final weeks of the year, distractions blur your focus. There doesn't seem to be any breathing space for the clarity you need to see how far you've traveled on your professional and personal path in 2014.

Decide to Let Go of Overwhelm

Slow your pace. Quiet your mind. Catch up with yourself and your accomplishments.

Here's an easy place to start. Ask yourself these questions without expected an answer to come to you right away or trying to answer them immediately. Instead live with the questions.

Allow them to reveal their answers to you...while waiting at a stop light or shopping for groceries, or in your dreams.

Notice what emerges from your curious and gentle inquiry. Jot down your responses when they're ready to be captured.

5 Energizing & Fun Questions to Ponder

  1. What expected and unexpected wins have you experienced in 2014?
  2. What surprised you about these wins/accomplishments?
  3. What do you find illuminating about your experience?
  4. What shifts do you feel within yourself?
  5. What is deeply significant to you about these achievements?

 Refresh...Mind, Body & Spirit

Pause to appreciate and fully embody your achievements in business, leadership and life during 2014. For as global visionary and "Soul of Money" author Lynne Twist reminds us, "What we appreciate, appreciates."

And, as quantum physicists have proven scientifically, what we focus on expands. So use the power of attention to see and savor your accomplishments. Bring into conscious view the path and distance you've traveled to arrive at new milestones on your life-enriching journey to soulful mastery.

3 Body Wisdom Business Lessons


When I began the Tai Chi class conveniently taught at my neighborhood park, it had been years since I had practiced this 'slow motion' martial art. The time lapse didn't matter because this Tai Chi form was different than the other 3 I learned (and had forgotten) so long ago.

Now I'm a Tai Chi newbie again. As I deal with how long it takes my body to grasp the presence, balance and flow of each movement, I realize that Tai Chi is also teaching me 3 valuable 'body wisdom' business lessons.

  1. Patience is a practice.
    • Trying to control our progress keeps us from seeing small steps we can take.
    • Relaxing our expectations frees us to learn from our practice.
  2. Transitions energize our next steps.
    • Shifting back a little gives us momentum for moving forward in a new direction.
    • Slowing down lets us balance the way we take the next step.
  3. Economy of motion leads to results.
    • Paying attention to one change at a time, we begin to sense a way to flow into our next move.
    • Making small shifts, minor adjustments, and little course corrections, we move into a natural rhythm of the steps we're learning to take.


Now it's time for me to take a short break from sitting in front of my computer at work and practice what I'm learning in Tai Chi. Where in business, leadership and life are you practicing presence, balance and flow?
