Are you who you show you are?

It was a day I’ll never forget.  During my morning “zen time” I had been reading Nathaniel Brandon”s, The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem: The Definitive Work on Self-Esteem by the Leading Pioneer in the Field – I think it was around 2003 (it was definitely before my kiddo was born, as there hasn’t been much “zen” […]

The Power of Community

When I started OnStage Leadership in Dallas in 2009, I hardly knew anyone.  We had moved there two years before and I hadn’t really “plugged in”.  At the time I was traveling a lot for work, so other than spending time with our wonderful neighbors, I felt pretty isolated.  2009 was a watershed year for […]

Expanding perception

It’s hot here in NY.  I thought Dallas was hot.  This feels hotter. I’m a ritual junkie.  When I do my daily walk I take the same route, at the same time, on the same side of the street every day.  It helps me think.  It soothes me – like a salve.  Makes me a […]

Quiet the voice to tap into your true self

So I’m only on Day 3 of this new blogging-thing and already it’s painful.  So much for endurance, eh?  I go out on my morning walk and all this brilliance is floating around my head, and then when I return to put it down on paper (or on computer screen), it feels a bit like […]

Recently I had an opportunity to work with one of the world’s most respected training organizations.  I went in with stars in my eyes, full of awe – a bit like Peggy in the musical 42nd street – arriving in NYC, fresh off the bus to chase her dream on Broadway.  I was brought in […]

One step at a time – even when it’s hard

Posted by on Jul 15, 2013 | 4 Comments

I walk about 5 miles a day – on most days. Some days the walk seems really easy. A breeze. It goes so fast that I’m almost inspired to do another lap of my ritual path through the neighborhood. Some days it’s really hard. A total slog. It’s all I can do not to turn back – except I’d have to walk back and that wouldn’t reduce the torture.

Today was a slog. But I did it anyway.

When I got back I realized that I was glad I walked. Glad it was over, but glad I walked. And I think that’s what anything that is worthwhile is like – running a company, leading a team, even simply having a relationship! It’s not always a breeze. But if we don’t keep doing it, even when it’s hard, we don’t get anywhere.
