The Toxicity of Negativity

Negativity is something that we can all agree is bad.  No one prides themselves on being a negative person.  No one includes the characteristic of negativity when trying to paint someone in a good light.  However, it’s something that people so often struggle with, and even worse, seem to be unaware of. Even just a bit of negativity can taint an entire idea, project, team or progress in general.  Have you ever come home after being away all day and something smells bad in the house?  You immediately go on a hunt to find and remove whatever is causing...

Setting Goals and Resolutions

We’ve all been there before.  It’s the end of the year, and we think to ourselves, “This next year is going to be it.  It will be the year I finally ________.”  We may fill in that blank with goals like “buy a home”, “lose the weight”, or “start a business”. The problem is, we dream the dream but often don’t put the work and the time into it. We start strong but lack consistency and our efforts dwindle as the new year becomes not so new.  We let distractions of our friends, family, environment, and general life keep us...
