Sometimes we just need a quick fix! Maybe it’s an uncomplicated reminder or a gentle nudge. These are some of my favs… bits of wisdom picked up over the years, shared liberally and continually reapplied in my own life. I keep this list for myself and read through it from time to time so I thought I’d share it with you.

Take what you need, skip past what you don’t, and maybe leave a reflection, a question or a bit of your own wisdom in the comments section below.


  1. Stop creating drama around it. Fix it. Solve it. Or move on.
  2. Start from where you are, that’s all you can do. You’ll learn and grow along the way
  3. Be patient, life is a process not an event
  4. Keep a Positive Attitude – it feels better inside, and nothing improves with a negative outlook
  5. Surround yourself with positive, inspiring people as much as you possibly can, they’ll help you stay focused and pull you forward.
  6. Speak from the heart. What comes from the heart goes to the heart.
  7. Set and write down goals, both short term and long term. It keeps you focused and moving forward.
  8. Take care of your body – your body always gets the final say.
  9. Listen to your intuition and trust your gut. The biggest mistakes I ever made in life have been the times I ignored my intuition.
  10. Stop tolerating bad behavior and things that don’t make you happy. Fix it or move on – it’ll drain your energy. 
  11. Respect money. It touches every area of your life.
  12. Detox your Inbox. Email is a HUGE time waster.
  13. Go for completion not perfection. You can correct and improve along the way.
  14. Assess. Correct Move Forward. We all make mistakes or errors in judgement and need to reevaluate sometimes. Let it go.Assess. Correct Move Forward.
  15. One step at a time; it’s all we can really do. Pause. Breathe. Next Step.
  16. Get really good at decision making, it’s a skill. Procrastination is delayed decision making – this wears you out. If you’re slow at it practice getting better and faster.
  17. Reframe the hardships and the failures – Vince Lombardi once said “We didn’t loose the game, we just ran out of time.”
  18. Don’t quit your day job. Seriously. I see people get frustrated and do this all the time. Think about the finances and make a rational, calculated deci
  19. Be Brave, Be Bold. Ask what’s the worse case scenario? How do you mitigate this? What will you regret not doing?
  20. Look for Support. Trying to do it alone is so hard and no fun. We all need people to lean on personally and professionally.
  21. Stop trying to learn from your mistakes without new information. You only really know for sure what NOT to do. Seek advice and a new perspective readily.
  22. Life is like driving a car; you go the same direction you look. Focus on what’s ahead of you not what’s behind you.
  23. Create a working environment that supports You. We all work differently.
  24. Allow people to help you. Accept it graciously. It’s good for both of you.
  25. Finish what you’ve started and clean up loose ends. Zelda Fitzgerald once said; “Loose ends are the strings by which men hang themselves.”
  26. Get really good at focusing on what’s moving you forward, not just keeping you busy.
  27. Try to help people along the way. We all love good karma 🙂
  28. Have firm boundaries. “Be of service”… not a servant.
  29. Have a supportive, healthy routine. What is at least ONE THING that you can do on a daily or weekly basis that makes you feel great? Dance, yoga, hiking, movies, massage etc.
  30. Do what makes you feel empowered and inspired – this is always the right way for you.
  31. Not everyone is going to like or agree with you… just let it go.
  32. Stop complaining. Focus on what you DO WANT and find a path there.
  33. Charge for your expertise. Knowledge is valuable and thinking is work. Ask any doctor or lawyer 😉
  34. Move on. Life can be really hard sometimes… I get it. I’m sorry. I wish I could change that. Move through those times with as much grace and ease as you can but don’t hold onto them.
  35. Ask yourself daily, “Will this bring joy, ease, health or happiness into my life?”
  36. Always remember what life is truly about; shared moments, love, laughter and maybe a little adventure! Do what you can with an open heart.
