Don't Forget Your Phone - Thoughts from Kevin

4/9/2021
When I was growing up, most households only had one phone and it was usually in the kitchen. And teens spent alllll the time on that phone. Today’s teens also spend a lot of time on the phone, as do most of us. These tiny devices consume so much of our time and attention, although we rarely use them anymore for what they were originally designed for – to TALK on them.

Transaction or Interaction - Thoughts from Kevin

3/26/2021
In a fast-paced (and often remote working) world, we seem to run our days on “transactions” – short-term, project-driven tasks.

That’s why it’s important that we balance transactions with interactions. Learn the difference and therefore how to recognize this balance in your life from this episode. From...

Self Care isn't Selfish - Thoughts from Kevin

In the world today, people are running hard and fast, many so focused on taking care of others – be that their children, spouse, clients, teammates, students or their patients – that they aren’t taking the time to take care of themselves.
