There’s No Right Way to Do This

9/18/2020
As we continue to navigate through these unprecedented times of change and challenge, there’s a trap that we can fall into - thinking there is some “right” way we’re supposed to be handling it all. The truth is, there is no right way to do this. Each of us is doing the best we can with the resources we have. And, while we can definitely make positive and healthy choices and changes, shaming ourselves and putting pressure on ourselves to do things “right,” especially these days, is...

As we hit the unofficial six-month mark of the pandemic here in the United States, I’ve been reflecting on some of what I’ve seen, heard, and learned - both personally and from the people around me during this time.

With fires raging in Northern California, a hurricane down in Texas and Louisiana, 180,000 Americans dead from Covid-19, and the horrific shooting of Jacob Blake by the police and two people killed during the protests in Kenosha, WI, I’m feeling incredibly sad and angry.

Focus on What You Can Control

8/21/2020
I learned an incredibly valuable lesson from my pitching coach at Stanford, Dean Stotz...that there are really only two things we can control, our attitude and our effort. This lesson has served me well throughout my life and is critically important for us to remember, especially when we’re faced with stressful, challenging, and uncertain times as we are right now. On this episode, we discuss how to stop focusing on what we can’t control, and ways to shift our attitude and take effective...

Go With the Flow

8/14/2020
I’m back from our trip and a nice break...and have some stories to share. In this episode we talk about the importance of “going with the flow,” especially when things are stressful, challenging, and uncertain - as they are for many of us right now. Going with the flow is about acceptance, which is not passive or weak, although it can be challenging. In fact, it’s incredibly powerful and effective when we have the courage to truly go with the flow. Resources: We’re All in This Together...

Loosen Your Grip

7/15/2020
I have a tendency to hold onto things tightly, often to my own detriment. Unless it’s an actual emergency, gripping things tightly almost always limits our joy, perspective, and effectiveness. These past few months, a lot of us have been holding on both personally and professionally pretty intensely, which is completely understandable, yet often problematic. In this episode I talk about this dynamic and how important it is for us to loosen our grip, especially right now. Doing this...

We Can Do Hard Things

7/8/2020
Our friend Glennon Doyle, best-selling author of Untamed, often offers a great reminder to us all that “we can do hard things.” I woke up this morning thinking about this quote and idea. Things in our country and our world seem pretty hard and bleak these days, and many of us are struggling in significant ways - physically, mentally, emotionally, financially, politically, organizationally, relationally, and more. And, as hard as things may be, it’s important for us to remember how strong...

The first six months of 2020 have been unprecedented in so many ways. Things have been painful, challenging, and uncertain for most of us in just about every important aspect of our lives.

Get In The Game...and, Take Care of Yourself

6/19/2020
Things continue to be incredibly intense in our country and our world these days. And, if we want to make a difference, have impact, and create real change, we have to get in the “game.” In other words, we need to put ourselves out there, take action, and actually do things that align with our values and our desires for change, growth, and success. Doing this takes courage and a willingness to fail. Simultaneously, we can’t be in the game all the time or we will burn ourselves out. We...

What We Can Do Right Now to Create Change

6/10/2020
In the midst of all that has been happening in our country in the past few weeks, I’ve been hearing a lot of people ask the question, “What can I do?” I think the answer to this question does depend a bit on who we are, where we are, our level of privilege and power, our background and identity, our experience, and more. And, even with all of these variables and the intensity of this moment, on this episode I share some thoughts and ideas about how we can be a positive force for change in...

Be Careful of the Traps of Blame and Numbness

6/1/2020
In response to the killing of George Floyd and the subsequent protests that have erupted throughout our country, I have noticed my own tendency to want to blame others or simply check out and go numb. While these are understandable reactions, they are not helpful or healthy. On today’s show I talk about how we can avoid these traps, and explore some ways we can stay open, curious, and engaged - even if we feel scared, angry, confused, or overwhelmed by all that is happening. This is a...

Black Lives Matter

On today’s show I share some passionate thoughts, feelings, and perspectives on the recent killings of George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery...and how we can authentically address issues of racial justice in our culture. I clearly don’t have the answers to these complex and painful challenges, but I do think we can and we must have a deeper, more authentic conversation about these things collectively. And, more than talking, it’s important for us to take actions that can impact positive...
