I’ve learned a hard truth. Having a busy mind blocks creativity and insight. There’s no space. It’s taken over by worries, excess energy, distraction. You name it.
It takes practice to let go and move to a place where creativity and insight can grow.

What is it about the feeling of anxiety that makes you so frantic and ready to escape it? The feelings that come along with anxiety – like doom, dread or worry – are feelings that you wish would just go away forever.

How do you get support when it comes to accountability for your goals – personally and professionally?
You know many ways to delegate and get support. You can hire a virtual assistant, hire a housekeeper, and even hire someone to run your errands. That can take care of your administrative tasks, your vacuuming, and your gift buying but what about other parts of your life?
Partnering with a peer boosts accountability because by building clarity and accountability into any type of goal the likelihood of achieving it will increase. Further, you gain support in a multitude of ways – through your peer’s coaching, creative ideas, lessons, goals, and mistakes.
Considering how your roles models handle situations is inspiring. It helps you to creatively look at something in a new, different, and maybe even better way. Often times, the idea or solution was already inside of you – visualizing role models – helps to coax it out.
