Is It An Advantage To Underpromise And Overdeliver?

Deliver on your promises

In business, there is a saying that we ought to “Under-promise and over-deliver.” Now to some point I believe there is some truth in this saying because we continuously satisfy our clients by giving them more than what was expected. By fulfilling what we had promised and by providing them what was expected we make them happy and this in turn gives us repeat business from them. This part of the saying is true, but that is just a minute detail in the saying.

Do You Want To Fight It, Fix It Or Friend It?

reeds bending in water
We are all familiar with how to fight or resist the enemy.  We can kick, scream, scheme, or pretend it doesn’t hurt us.  In my experience, it seems we are also all pretty familiar with fixing the perceived problem as well.  The problem may be in society, in our partners or children, or in us.  What if this life is not about fixing the problem or fighting the issue, but rather what if it is about living the mystery or making friends with life?

I'm a creator. I find meaning in the making and life in the meaning.

The Hole In My Heart

My relationship with creating has been like that of high school sweethearts, separated by college and marriage to later be reunited.

I advanced from macaroni and macrame to drawing and gardening. Our house was filled with the fruits of my hands.

All The Things That Softly Kill Me

The light. Oh the light!

Inside out:

You will find me one day, delirious on my living room floor. I won’t have eaten all week but my bones will be pulsing light so your eyes will need to adjust. You will rush to bend to me, to inquire, and I will hold your face in my hands and whisper, “The gratitude is killing me.” I’ll smile and consider dying in your arms.

What I Learned From Bernstein (Gabby), Brene (Brown) & Beth’s Big Magic


I’ve always been an avid reader, a lover of all things to do with books - the smell of a new book, the sound of opening a brand new book, the feel of a crisp new page.

A Spiritual Approach To Dealing With The Flu

If my math is right, the last time I had the flu was almost 20 years ago.

It was early evening, during an executive board meeting at my church, when all of a sudden it seemed like the “off” switch had been flipped on my entire body. Fortunately I lived just a block or two away, so I politely excused myself and walked home. When I arrived, I went straight to bed.

Morning Habits

If you’re like me, when you start your morning in a rush, it makes every challenge or problem that arises during the day a lot worse. When I wake up late and hurry to get ready for work, my mind is a blur, I’m not peaceful, and I don’t make the best decisions.
