Do you know the difference? Virtues are instilled. They are manifested by what molds and shapes us; usually character building opportunities produce virtues. Typically, virtues are taught by our parents, teachers, coaches, and the like. From the time we are wee boys and girls, these important people shape the virtues we become, from the inside out. Our values are what we claim. Words that define what we believe in social settings. They help us connect with other like-mi...

“Take the trip, buy the shoes, eat the cake” We’ve all heard that line before and felt its familiar tug, reminding us that life is better when it’s lived, fully. Trading coffee with your family, for on-time arrival to the office, or skipping the walk after lunch, to meet a deadline are familiar, as well. Choices are made many times in a day, probably a hundred times or more. In hindsight, COVID-19 will forever remind me to “take the trip, buy the shoes, and eat the cake”. ...

This week, I have needed the medicine that cures all. LAUGHTER! Anyone watch the new Jerry Seinfeld gig? 23 Hours to Kill. I highly recommend watching. Jerry made me laugh out loud. Anyone have a fear of Port-O-Potty’s? I do. So does Jerry. He explains why. Anyone prefer texting to talking? He’s polished and the delivery, exceptional. If you need some laughs, he will deliver. I’m looking for inspirational ideas this week. Someone suggested watching the video of a LIVE...

A colleague posed a question to me yesterday, looking both to express himself, and to seek connection. “Do you still have that general sense of malaise this week?” I applauded his bravery in allowing himself to exist and explore the generally unexciting place occupying his mind. Without hesitation, I encouraged him not to “fake it”, but to speak openly with clients, colleagues, friends and family. Chances are, they feel it too. Maybe even a new sense of reality that may feel ...

It started as a small project. My desire was to put together a gift for my son. A sweetly arranged photo album of fond memories of his first 21 years. Of course, I’ve already done his customary baby album, but I stopped at about 7 years old. When would I get the time to actually focus on this project again? Into the basement, I went. I located the bin of arranged photos, separated by age, activity, and school. I slowly unpacked the photos and began the trip down memory lane....

During times of tragedy, war, famine, and pandemic, the definition of assets change overnight. Country club memberships, social status, sports, and fancy heels, sit in the closet. How can they possibly contribute in times such as this? Underneath all of the intellectual attempts to civilize people and produce impressive technological advancements, we are reminded of our human biology. For millions of years, the basic fundamental connection humans share, is to support and defe...

A strange, new psychology has emerged. The initial adrenaline of home offices, the novelty of the proverbial gift of “time” at home, wearing yoga pants to the office, has become the norm. We’ve adapted. It took about 40 days. Now, a new existence is born. A deeper, look inward emerges. The search for purpose, connection to our spiritual selves, our own intrinsic internal drivers. Are they the same BC (Before Coronavirus)? Has something new bubbled up for you? A fresh perspe...

Today, I celebrate creativity. My little brother (pictured left) and his family live in our home town in Illinois. It’s a wholesome farm community where families are raised, small business thrive, agriculture feeds the community, and the world turns. Like us, they have a shelter-in-place order. Kids are home from school, my sister-in-laws (entrepreneur) famous hair salon isn’t creating fabulous, beautiful hair styles, and my brother (entrepreneur) is running the family bus...

This past Friday, Gotham hosted a happy hour, via Zoom.  It was fun! "When life gave them Quarantine, Gothamites made Quarantinis." It was good to see everyone and be "together", even if we couldn't be together, in the flesh. The best part was seeing everyone in their natural habitats. Their drink of choice, the convenience of refills and the belly of laugter we all experienced, amidst the scary events happening all around. Much needed. The guys are growing beards, and the la...

Dinner Plans? The highlight of the weekend was our impromptu dinner plans. Whilst my husband washed the floors on Friday, I quickly made our dinner reservations. We had choices.... Dinner at The Bentley Bistro, outdoor dining at Carly’s Cafe or the Chateau Bentley. Creativity and levity saved the day. Peace ebbs and flows, along with our creativity. Our new existence. Adapting with each day. Zoom with friends, Gotham Happy Hour, creative collaboration, support through extens...
