I had just gotten out of my morning yoga class.
The rest of the day was free, and I had no idea what to do with it.
Should I try to see some tourist attractions? Should I go to the shopping mall? Should I just wander around and see what presents itself?
It wasn’t such a bad situation to be in, really. I was paying the rent.… Click to read more

I visited New York City with my mom and younger sister recently. We were walking near Battery Park when we saw a man wearing a clown wig and playing a ukulele- making up songs as people walked by.

Sometimes we think we need to listen to other people to find out the best way.
It’s easy to feel that we need to learn better strategies, do more exercises and read more blog posts before we can find the best course of action. Doing this gets us caught in a doom spiral of endless preparation.
Today a client was telling me that he felt like there were so many ebooks out there he needed to read. “There’s so much great information that could help me improve or find a better way to do things.”
The problem was that despite consuming a lot of ebooks and courses he still wasn’t any closer to finding out what he wanted to do.… Click to read more
