Today’s episode is inspired by a question sent in by Harold, who’s wrestling with how to make the best choice when your gut and logic disagree.
I think we’ve all been in a situation where something looked really great on paper but, for whatever reason, we couldn’t shake that funny feeling that said, “Something about this just isn’t right.”
Logic can sometimes lead us to a starkly different conclusion than our intuition. And when those two forces are in conflict, naturally we feel torn and confused.
While I’m a person who relies heavily on intuition, experience has taught me that it’s wise to have a series of questions to work through, especially when emotions are running high and the pressure is intense.
You’re about to learn 5 smart questions to ask (and answer) when logic and your intuition don’t agree.
Gosh, when today’s question came in — it was something I could really relate to.
It’s about wrestling with your deep desire to create and produce, contribute your unique gifts to the world (i.e. WORK!) and honor the small voice in your heart that that whispers, “Don’t be such a workaholic that you miss out on what truly matters. Life is short.”
It’s a topic I revisit often, in my thoughts and conversations. While I don’t claim to have it all figured out…
There are 4 distinct, very doable practices that can help you honor your drive to produce and help you stay out of unhealthy work addiction so you don’t end-up ripping through life, left with only a pile of regrets at the end of your days.
Have you ever walked into a restaurant with a ginormous menu and felt frozen in indecision, like “Aaahg! Too many choices…I have no idea what to get. Don’t want to pick the wrong thing!”
Or been given carte blanche by your significant other, “I’ll take you wherever you want to go. We can go wherever you want — anywhere at all! Just name it,” as you flail around in your head and fail to come up with a good answer.
Or, how about looking at your mile-long to do list and getting totally overwhelmed by all the different things you could work on right now, only to waste hours trying to figure it out.
Welcome to the strange and often anxiety inducing, energy-draining land of limitless choice!
In today’s episode, you’ll learn about the power of a decision detox and how to give yourself an immediate boost in clarity, creativity and overall energy.
Have you ever heard something that, technically, you’ve “heard” before — but this time, it hits you square in the heart?
That happened to me a few months ago with a quote. The underlying concept was something I was familiar with, and to some degree even live by (though, I do fail often).
It’s one of those big ideas that should be taught, and re-taught, to all human beings throughout our entire lives. It’s deceptively simple, yet deeply profound.
And, it’s particularly useful for those of us who like to feel “in control” of things (my hand’s raised!), because it gives us a healthy place to direct that desire. A way to steer what is perhaps the only thing in this life we can control.
Have a watch and I think you’ll agree…
A reader named Sei asked if I could walk her through one of my most important daily habits. Specifically, how I meditate. My first thought: “There’s soooo much info on meditation out there already…do I really need to add to the pile?”
Second thought: “Yeah, I do. Because I haven’t fully covered my personal practice yet. And when you’re earnestly trying to learn something new, specific steps from someone you trust are vital.”
While I’ve mentioned the power of meditation many times, if you’ve been curious to know exactly how I do it, today’s episode breaks it down.
