When One Door Closes . . .

This has been a different summer for me. While many people's businesses see a winding down over the summer, I have not had that experience -- until this year, that is. You see, I had been planning to spend July in Hawaii and so other than teaching an online course, I did not make any efforts to book speaking engagements this summer. But as can sometimes happen, life threw us a curveball and the door on our Hawaii vacation slammed shut. Now what? I wondered, "What am I going to do with all this…See More

Challenging Ourselves

Saturday, September 17 was a long and exhausting day. Truthfully, the whole week leading up to that date had been long and exhausting. Adding to the grueling schedule was excruciating pain caused by two bone spurs in my right foot. All I wanted to do that Saturday was teach my 5-hour leadership class at Bay Path University, get home that afternoon, take 800mg of ibuprofen, eat a meal, and get off my foot. That's what I wanted to do.However.... A few months prior to that day, my friend Dennis…See More

What Will You Leave?

I love my birthday. I love celebrating my birthday. Sometimes I do so with friends; sometimes I prefer it be a simple and quiet affair. (There must, however, always be cake!) The joke in my household is that once the December holiday season ends, I begin the countdown to my birthday which, by the way, falls on the 110th day of the calendar year. (111 day if it is a leap year.) Let me state clearly, I do not mind getting older. I embrace it, truly. And truth be told, there was only one birthday…See More

It's About Time (Management, That Is)

H. Jackson Brown, Jr. wrote, "Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo DaVinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein." Time management, in a nutshell, is how we get things done. When you develop good time management skills you are in control of your time, your life, and your stress level. So, if you feel the need to be more organized, more productive, start by…See More

Ambition, Achievement, Fulfillment

A few weeks back a colleague said to me, “I admire how ambitious you are.” Her words stopped me.“Ambitious? You see me as ambitious?” I was puzzled. I never thought of myself in that way, so I had to ponder what she meant by that. I turned to my internal dictionary and thesaurus — the one my grandmother had drilled into me as a child by insisting that I learn the list of spelling bee words she tore out of the Sunday paper each week. Ambitious: a go-getter, power-hungry, zealous. That’s not me.…See More

Helping Your Kids Cope With Stress at Hitchcock Free Academy

April 6, 2016 from 7pm to 8:30pm
We like to think of childhood as a fun-filled, stress-free time in life. Truth be told? It isn't. Kids experience stress. Schoolwork, peer pressure, family issues can create pressures that can be overwhelming for kids. As a parent, you can't protect your kids from stress, but you can help them develop healthy ways to cope with stress and solve everyday problems. We call that resilience.In this presentation, resilience strategist Rita Schiano will help parents recognize the cues when their child…See More

Calming the Mind

"Calmness of mind," James Allen wrote, "is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom. It is the result of long and patient effort in self-control." So how can we do this in the midst of a hectic workday? Often we stress about things we cannot change: the economy, the weather, our commute to work. Recognizing the difference between what we can and cannot change can help us live more peaceful and productive lives. Managing stress is a pathway to healthy living, and mindful breathing is the…See More
