If the Therapist Falls Asleep

I started thinking that I probably wasn’t living my best life when my therapist fell asleep during our counseling session. I’m sure that listening to me wallow in my misery was painfully tedious, especially since the solution was so obvious; I needed to move on.

It took another year before I would entertain that idea (even though, for several months, I had been hoping I would die on my way to work!).

Looking back, it is hard for me to believe I was so stubbornly attached to such a painful construct.  What we think is necessary…often is not.

I hope you will hear life calling you today more quickly than I did.

Look for the clues outside your normal.

PS. If we are not in therapy, we may want to notice how bored our friends are with our diatribes.

What Else Have I Missed?

Someone showed me a “duh” trick on my phone the other day. I felt like an idiot for not knowing it earlier. You’ve probably experienced this too.

But, the really sad truth is that there are plenty more things all of us could be doing right now, at this moment, that would make life easier. Instead, we often plod along on our well-worn path, hoping that progress doesn’t overtake us somewhere along the road.

How to make sure this isn’t you?

  1. Instead of playing Solitaire or Candy Crush, Google your questions or watch a TEDTalk
  2. Explore technology tips on your phone or laptop
  3. Take classes
  4. Get a mentor
  5. Ask smart people questions
  6. Turn off your ego and admit you don’t know
  7. Quit making yourself irrelevant by talking about the way things “used to be”
