Great Days (& Great Lives) Don’t Just Happen.

Updated: Jun 8, 2022

I was having lunch with a friend last week and we were discussing summer plans. The kids will be home from school next week and we know too well what happens when we don’t have plans for the summer.


Kids languish in front of screens and parents feel a constant tug of war between our own needs and parenting.


In years past, I’ve left the summer to chance and when it’s over I feel like I really missed out on valuable time with my kids.


This year I am going to create more structure.


I’m going to schedule my days intentionally, take specific days off, and plan a few trips.


I’m going to design my days. Mornings work, afternoon lake time, toss in a couple baseball games and bonfires.


I’m not good at spontaneity. It’s never been my jam. I actually get very anxious when people ask me what I want to do.


By designing each day in advance I can follow the plan and just say yes.


For some this may too rigid, but for me this works.


I’ll consider each morning what a great day would look like. Then I write it out. And I just do it. Even when I may not want to pack up 4 kids and drive to the beach;-)


I know that once we get going I’ll have a great time and feel close to the kids.


A plan gives me freedom to take care of my own needs without guilt. I can work on my projects, hit the gym, and go out with friends knowing that I have created space for all of my priorities in my calendar.


I work with my coaching clients on topics like this. This often shows up like:


“My kids are getting older and I feel like we are drifting apart.”


Or “I don’t feel like I get anything done during the day.”


Then I help you to figure out what you really feel when you think these things. Together we create new opportunities (and beliefs) that result in more ease and joy in all aspects of your life.


I am life coach for people who want to be an exceptional leader for their business, family, and community.
