What you pay attention to will grow

August 1st, 2020 · Comments

It's the kernel of truth at the core of the law of attraction. Whatever you give your attention becomes more available as a pattern to use while interpreting situations. What you give your attention to will grow. It doesn't mean to expect goals without work. It means you can prime yourself to notice opportunity.

Get Stronger with Every Struggle

Hang in there, people say. You'll get through it. But I want you to do more than get through: I want you to struggle hard enough to get stronger. Struggle is a part of life but holding on until you find the gift in struggle is a choice. Learn more in my new book, Resilience: Grow Stronger in a Time of Crisis.

What do you value and how can values keep you moving forward in uncertain times?

April 19th, 2020 · Comments

Take a few moments to explore a value you hold and how it can make a difference as you face the challenges ahead. We often think of values as things we "should" live up to. It's more useful to think of them as a way of shaping useful goals when we have only a little information about what the future might hold.

What’s Your Next Step?

September 20th, 2019 · Comments

We say that it's crazy to do the same thing over and over and expect a different result. The truth is that it is also crazy to do the same thing and expect the same result. Change happens in and around us, often whether or not we choose it. So this is a podcast for people who have just been hit by a change. The most important question you can ask is not "how did this happen?" It is "What's My Next Step?" 

Asking yourself what you want while you are responding to unwanted change is difficult and it takes patience and persistence. So, given what just happened, what's your next step?

Is it time to sharpen your axe?

March 3rd, 2019 · Comments

I was inspired by a conversation during a course to remind people to resist bad managers that insist that you look busy all the time. If you never sharpen your axe, you're not having your best ideas, and you're not producing as much as you could be.

Blindspots, Edges and How Systems Help Us Grow

February 2nd, 2019 · Comments

Have you ever wondered how a course or coaching could help you get more out of life? Here's a simple explanation of a complicated reality. Your brain works to stabilize experience by noticing information that confirms what you already think. You have blindspots and edges and you aren't aware of them, because your auto-pilot is to notice only the things within the edges. To make new choices, you need to notice your edges and explore ways to stretch them. 

Systematic thinking brings to mind things you have noticed but would not automatically generate as thoughts. Good training offers a system that makes you aware of edges so that you can make choices about where you want to push them back so you can grow new choices and new opportunities.

Find what you need to do something difficult and worthwhile

October 8th, 2018 · Comments

Achievement is a big word. It scares people because they think it's hard to live up to. But an achievement is just something that you do that is both difficult and worth doing. There's something in your mind now that you want to do, but you're not sure you can get it done. If you're sure that it will be worthwhile, then take a few minutes to walk through this guided visualization and find the motivation and congruence to do the the difficult thing that you want to do.

What thinking inside the box can mean for you

July 1st, 2018 · Comments

When you're stuck, it can feel like the walls are closing in on you. There's not enough room to move and no good options. You want to think outside the box, but all you can see or feel is the box.

Let Linda guide you through an experience that will change the way you experience the box and it's place in the world. Thinking inside the box is more fun - and more productive - than you might expect.

It’s not enough to be clear; you need to stay committed to your goals and values

June 8th, 2018 · Comments

Take a few moments to think about how you get distracted from what you know you want. Then think about the coaching, training or connections who can help you stay on course when the going gets bumpy or something distracts you from doing what you need to do to make what you want happen.
