Project: 30 Days of Thoughtful

By

I was looking for something that I could read for 2 minutes in the morning or in a coffee break that would help me continue to keep growing but that was gritty and deep enough to be meaningful. So here’s my offering – a short journey for 30 days into Thoughtful, from September 1 – September 30th, 2017. I’ll send you an email with a reflection from my private journals, this blog and lessons I’ve learned from wise advisors and mentors on the way.

No Such Thing As A Broken Man (Or Woman).

By

We relinquish our creative power, becoming obsessed with doing what is right. In our desire to be perfect we neglect our greatest purpose in the Universe.
