My leadership development group is this morning. Or today rather. Looking forward to that. And I get to go back to Jazzercise this morning for the first time in like a week. Man, those mornings got eaten up. It’s nice to have things in the morning instead of the afternoon – but then jazzercise bites … Continue reading processing through my motivation for volunteering
Morning. I gotta say, I love using my computer for actual writing. When I bought my first laptop, that’s what I thought I’d be doing with it. It is far more satisfying than reading the news or responding to email. Just saying. The strategic plan meeting went well. It’s always interesting to work with a … Continue reading groups & awareness
Got up early this morning – trying to transition into having some time in the mornings to get things done. Today the alarm went off at 5:30. I spent the first 28 minutes in a hot shower. 32 minutes left. The only trouble with this plan is that it’s the complete opposite of my ideal … Continue reading early mornings and advisory boards
I think I need to start writing again. And I gotta say, it’s scarier this time around. I’m not sure why it wasn’t last time…I didn’t have anything at stake, I guess. What is even at stake this time? I’m not sure. I don’t have a well-defined career or something I’m holding tightly to. Except … Continue reading I think it might be time…
Tony's family gathered recently to celebrate his birthday and invited me to cmd along to document the party. And let me just tell you, these people know how to party. There was surprise silly string, spray-in hair color, plenty of cake, baby naps, games & outside activity. These pictures are a tiny part of everything … Continue reading Happy Birthday, Tony!
Meet Allison Waters. She's a local skateboarder who has spent the last year designing, planning, and getting funding for the perfect indoor skatepark. She's smack dab in the middle of one of her bigger hurdles - securing a location. We met a couple months ago and she told me all about why she does … Continue reading Why do you…want to build an indoor skatepark?
Last week I went to a coffee chat hosted by a local change management organization. It was one of those networking events where we all stand around at the beginning and either awkwardly try to find someone to chat with and appear to belong or easily locate our friends and catch up with them. This … Continue reading Using Story to Drive Change
Accuracy is your friend. This is the mantra I’ve been trying to plant firmly in my kids minds for the last few years. Last weekend the kids and I were going to one of their practices. We were running pretty late, and one of the kids was trying to figure out if he had time … Continue reading Accuracy is your friend
I'm going to be starting a new series - rather, I'm going to start showing you the series I've been working on for the last several months. As you probably gathered from the title above, this series is about people's "why". It's a peek inside people's mindset & motivation, a glance at what fuels them, … Continue reading Why? Series – Mrs. Jette
The school year has started and I promised myself I’d be back in this space when that happened. For the first time in my parenting life all of my children are in school, giving me about 5 hours of blank space everyday. This is amazing. A-ma-zing. I’m the sort of person who likes to fill … Continue reading October 7, 2016
