Year Resolutions

Hi friends, Well we’re a couple weeks into January and I’m wondering, how are you doing? No, I’m not asking the quick in passing version, I’m looking at you and wondering, how are you REALLY doing?

Stop Being So Critical- Celebrate the Win…

Look back at your year and think about your achievements… Are you too hard on yourself?  I mean, you might have accomplished 9 out of 10 goals but since you didn’t complete all of them 100% are you a failure? If this is you, you’re not alone. Why are we so critical?!! Would you likeContinue reading “Stop Being So Critical- Celebrate the Win…”

To enrich a job is to make it more satisfying for its employees. To enrich one’s life is to make it more enjoyable. Notice it isn’t aboutContinue reading “Enriching Activities”
