When Your Life Changes

No pain no gain

behaviors trump intentions
Behaviors trump intentions. You can (and should) organize your mantras.

No pain no gain.

My profession has a Hippocratic oath.

  • To offer the very best treatment.
  • Remain confidential.
  • Teach the next generation of teachers.

Medicine and medical treatment scares many.

This is why people fear hospitals.

To regain health, the unhealthy parts must be eradicated.

Unhealthy and unproductive habits and rituals that do not serve a person or an organization are the business equivalents of the medical profession.

Our motives will be attacked also. And new people enter our life who have no previous experience with us.

Being authentic can appear to others as weakness, or a lack of ambition.

It’s tough being an adult, especially one organizing their life around becoming authentic or maintaining authenticity.

Authenticity. Rare. Hence valuable.

It’s almost always embarrassingly slower than our reputation and ego can handle

Constantly learning WordPress, from the ground up
Constantly learning WordPress, from the ground up


The beautiful reward for hard work, and refusing to quit (ever) – and being open to new paths, is this…

Slow and steady progress.

Almost always embarrassingly slower than our reputation and ego can handle.

Yet always stronger and more profoundly beautiful, meaningful, and impactful than we dreamed it could be.

Because it was so much work. So much longer. And defeat looked so much bigger.
