Discipline and Letting Go

It's a beautiful Sunday morning and I'm walking through the woods and thinking about my characters and my week of Discipline. What I’ve learned, where I’ve struggled, the aha’s I continue to have, and the resources that support me through it all.

Right now, I’m thinking about pickleball coming up and that has me stuck. And I think it is reflective of the stuck-ness that I feel around my vision for accelerated success, my vision for future of peace and ease and flow and...

Accelerated Success - Doing the Work

Doing the Work – Kathy’s Journey of ASP Fall 2021

Logbook: Week One – Vision…and Struggle

So many thoughts about improving and changing what is – rather than simply experiencing what is – as it is – and choosing to step back into the flow of the river. Allowing…allowing…allowing. Enjoying and trusting and remaining curious. Why is this so difficult?

These last couple of days have been a roller coaster of thoughts, moods, and emotions....

Which Wolf Will You Feed Today?

I started my journey of walking the path of Accelerated Success as a student of my own program. Thank you for being willing to witness me. And so it begins. MASSIVE RESISTANCE!

It’s like my feet are stuck in molasses or something super sticky and super strong. It’s unbelievable to me. It is so easy to coach others – to champion others – to believe in others. It’s also easy to access vision through doing the work, doing the activities, meditating and sitting...

Is It Laziness...Or Non Doing?

How do you think about Laziness versus Non-Doing?

What’s the difference anyway? During this Pandemic chapter of life, so many reflections and revelations are emerging. Experiences that I may never have had without the gift of this forced slow down. As an avid “do-er”, Type A, Driver, Achiever, or whatever label you want to use, stopping on a dime has been both excruciating and liberating at the same time. I am reminded of my most excruciating time in life when John died...

Five Power Pillars to Propel You Into 2020

The last day of a calendar year is always a poignant reminder that the clock is ticking on our lives. Funny how we wait for the stroke of midnight 12/31 to choose to step forth into our higher aspirations. Funny, but also fantastic, because we need to use anything and everything to summon our courage to live our most powerful life NOW!

The turning of any meaningful calendar page can be our impetus to action. As I teach and coach people throughout the year, we always begin with vision and...

Serve More - Strive Less: Recovering Your Mojo

Feeling Stuck? Try Striving Less and Serving More

Do you sometimes struggle with keeping your mojo running at top speed? Are you a high achiever who thrives on running circles around “normal” people and their normal productivity? Do you get a thrill out of maximizing every hour of the day? Is accomplishment one of your superpowers?

If you relate to any of the above, you are a member of my tribe and I’m a member of yours. We are competitive to a fault sometimes, raising the...

How to Find Common Ground Through Polarity

Inspired from a class that I recently taught on Polarity Thinking, I’m sharing in service of the greater good, whether in the workplace, home, community, country, or world. The dialogue of this class is always so rich, so perfect, and so unexpected. On reflection, I think it is quite simply the fact that space has been created for dialogue. To pause, create intention together, and explore a conversation with openness, respect, and trust. As I move away from these classes and this...

Accessing Courage-Melting the Iceberg of Fear

Accessing Courage: Melting the Iceberg of Fear

 

It is a remarkably beautiful Friday morning. The sun rising, the sky so clear. Pink soft clouds on the horizon. It’s pristine. And as I head out into this day, I am frozen in fear. Feeling like I am walking on a tightrope, and if I make a wrong move or take a wrong step, I’ll fall to my peril. What is this all about, you ask? This is so silly. It’s about showing myself to the world. It’s about sharing my voice with...

Empathy Revisited: A New Freedom

In working with teams and leader’s day in and day out, one of the biggest challenges and desired outcomes I hear is to help people increase empathy with others. To understand each other better. To appreciate each other more. To tolerate each other better. To collaborate with each other better. To improve relationships across the board.

For nearly twenty years, I have been clear of my life’s purpose which is to increase empathy and understanding in the world. Once I became clear of...

The Power of Discretionary Engagement

The power of an employee’s discretionary engagement cannot be emphasized enough. It is the single most powerful ingredient a company can harness for success and competitive advantage in the marketplace. But what is “discretionary engagement” exactly? It is subtle, difficult to measure, and critical to achieving beyond ordinary results. Here is one story that illustrates just how elusive and yet impactful this ingredient can be.

It’s a Sunday morning and Karen is on her...
