Mother's Day 2006 and knowing when to quit

Happy Mother's Day to myself and to all of you mothers. I also want to send my heartfelt wishes to those of you who don't have mothers or who have been cheated in that department because your mom was not there for you. This is a day to give to yourself all the nurturing and love you can possibly can.

Did you ever hear "It won't kill you to just ..." While it's true that many things won't kill us, I invite you today to ask yourself whether to do or continue some work, relationship or behaviour could possibly "kill your spirit". Next time you are tempted to use the former, ask the latter: "Will it kill my spirit if I...." If the answer is yes, then it's definitely time to quit.

Have a great day

Your coach

Spring cleaning: Keeping track of your investments

Good morning: Watching the tree tops turn varying shades of green I am happy to report that I love days like today: there is a light rain, the weather is comfortably cool and the sky is a clear grey. A great day to stay indoors and attend to business.

Do you keep track of your investments? I don't just mean your financial investments like your registered savings plans or your IRA or savings accounts. If you are like me, you invest more than money. You invest time in activities and people. You invest money - or so you may say, in activities, learning, stuff like cars, house, study, fun, and a myriad of other things.

Hopefully, your financial investments are bearing fruits and growing. What about your other investments? Are they bearing fruits or do they end up being just expenses? Nothing wrong with expenses like a great hair cut or a well planned holiday but are you getting benefits of where you "invest" yourself, your time and your money or do you find yourself pouring resources in a bottomless pit?

Are there areas of your life that could benefit from more investments? Finishing your degree? Taking a specialized course to advance your career, going in therapy to heal the past, buying sport equipment and playing outside more?

As you do some spring cleaning - whether it's your closet, your windows or your car (my three priorities), take some time to review and revise all your life's investments.

Have a great weekend
