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.

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.

Taking the past two weeks off has been a huge game changer for me — and for our whole team. Personally, I loved stepping outside of my everyday routine and shaking things up.
I got an enormous amount of stuff done. Things that have been on my mental to-do list for what feels like f-o-r-e-v-e-r.
Simple stuff, like ordering an airpopper to make healthy popcorn (my favorite movie-watching treat!) to finally getting a proper soap-dish for my bathroom (I’ve been using a sushi dish for over a decade!), to totally cleaning out my kitchen and cupboards so that we’re free from unnecessary chemicals and toxins.
I worked out hard-core almost every day, nixed alcohol, watched some incredible shows (Peeky Blinders anyone?!?), danced, cooked and journaled my buns off.
My life got a total reboot from the inside out and it feels magnificent!
Now typically this time of year, many of us set our goals and visions for the year ahead.
We ask ourselves, “What do I want to create over these next 12 months? What’s the big future vision I’m committed to bringing to life?”

Relax. Be present. Enjoy this moment. Be here now.
Does that advice ever irritate the heck out of you — especially when you have a to-do list a mile long?
Even if you don’t get annoyed by the “be present” advice, you might feel confused by it.
Because most of us get that — in theory — being fully present is great for our brains, souls and relationships, but some of us wonder…
How the heck am I supposed to “be present” and still exist in the real world that constantly requires me to look ahead and plan my future?
If you want a simple trick to train yourself to be in the now and exist in the real world, you’re gonna love today’s episode.
