The Heartmanity Year in Review

December 19, 2019

Last year was a whirlwind year. As the retrospectives start rolling in, it doesn’t take much to floor me. Did all that really happen in 2019? Has it only been one year?

Author José Saramago wrote this about time: “You never know beforehand what people are capable of, you have to wait, give it time, it's time that rules, time is our gambling partner on the other side of the table and it holds all the cards of the deck in its hand, we have to guess the winning cards of life, our lives.”

You never know what a year is capable of.

Is Procrastination Stopping You from Fulfilling Your Dreams?

July 26, 2018

We’ve all done it in some area of our lives or another. You know you need to get “it” done, you watch your time running out, you feel your stress build, and still...you don’t get “it” done. Not until the absolute last minute (if then).

Procrastinating is no stranger. But should you try to make it one?

Generational Differences in the Workplace

July 17, 2018

Differences of all types are a touchy and fiercely relevant topic. Amidst the hubbub and debates, the discussions of sexism, racism and ageism—people still have to work. And it’s in the workplace that most people encounter people different than themselves. Generational differences in the workplace are now commonplace and one of the greatest challenges in companies.

Age in the workplace is one decisive topic. Whether you have a traditional 9-to-5 job or own your own tech firm, you will almost inevitably end up working for, managing, collaborating or communicating with someone of a vastly [...]

A Fixed Mindset Versus a Growth Mindset

July 03, 2018

Mindsets are like the story that many of us have heard multiple times: the two fighting wolves.

“A fight is going on inside me,” a man said to a boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”

Is It Possible to Plan a Microwedding and Keep Everyone Happy?

June 19, 2018

We just wanted all of our loved ones, a place to dance, and an open bar.

The second you say the word wedding, what should be a wonderful celebration comes crashing down around your feet in a flurry of multi-thousand-dollar estimates, tangled branches of the family tree, and a never-ending list of logistics. I never even knew what Chiavari chairs were!

The wedding world is in a different universe, and as much as you might envision that magical day, I do not believe any amount of pre-planning prepares you for when you dive into it.

How to Develop Resilience, and Why You Should!

June 14, 2018

Grit, resilience and perseverance have become buzzwords of late. From psychologist Angela Duckworth’s impactful interview on NPR to feminist graphic designs—grit and resilience are being recognized as the most important traits for success.

Developing your resilience can be the key to not only success at work, but a well-balanced social, home and family life, as well as your own self-care.

Still, many people spend a lot of time focusing on skills—in school, on job resumes, even in what’s taught to children. While there is nothing wrong with honing skills, the way you wield those skills is [...]

The Business Technique to Boost Mompreneurs' Success and Sales

June 12, 2018

“You’re a tour guide on the process, not trying to pull a cat on a leash.” I laughed out loud when sales coach and author Kim Orlesky said that to me.

Orlesky was talking about closing a sale in the business world, but she just as easily could have been talking about being a mom. Being a mother and an entrepreneur are not dissimilar, it turns out. A mompreneur's purpose is aligned with being a parent.

Loneliness and Hunger—a Complex Relationship

May 29, 2018

Loneliness and hunger—they are two of the most powerful and intertwined natural instincts. These two sensations are powerhouses in the human body and brain, controlling everything from our sleep to libido, productivity, immunity, muscle development, and cognitive abilities.

“Now I know what loneliness is, I think. Momentary loneliness, anyway. It comes from a vague core of the self like a disease of the blood, dispersed throughout the body so that one cannot locate the matrix, the spot of contagion.”  ― Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

Visualization and How to Create a Future You Love

May 24, 2018

It’s one thing to say you want something, another to make it a goal, and another to visualize yourself achieving your goal. The last option is possibly the most powerful.

Visualization has been cited as a game-changer by athletes like Olympian Kerri Walsh, celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Will Smith and Jim Carrey, and influential business people like Bo Bennet and Harvey Mackay.

Rehearsing your own success is not just for the rich and famous, though. It is a powerful tool for everyone from parents at home to kids applying to college, business owners and everyday staff workers.
