When everyone thinks your job is awesome. Except you.

I should like my job more than you do.

I don’t believe we should drag through our work days, watching the clock and dreaming about what happens after 5pm. If we’re going to spent 90,000 hours of our life working, shouldn’t those hours be mostly filled with meaning, connection and growth? 

Learning to love the kettle bells.

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right.”  

I am the type of girl who was not meant to exercise. I like to read, cook, chat with my friends, work hard, read some more, take long (leisurely) walks and lay in the grass watching the sky roll by. This is the story I have been repeating to myself and others as long as I can remember. In high school, I wrote a column for the school paper about how much I didn’t understand team sports – athletic cluelessness was part of my brand. Post-babies, when all my girlfriends and I would talk about how to get back in shape, I demurred at the idea of jogging: “I only run when I am chased,” I would say.

Working scared.

There are steps you can take to build peace of mind at work, even if things around you are full of change (and aren’t they always?)

We live and work in a time of constant change. Expecting the environment around us to stabilize and offer us some peace of mind seems like a lost cause. Rather, what we can do is take stock of where we are, gather data that helps us make informed choices, and take responsibility for the peace of mind we want.
