All of us experience moments where we find ourselves contemplating our life decisions. Sometimes it’s a big event, like a break-up or a health crisis, that pushes us to take a closer look at our life. Other times, it might be a small rumbling in the universe that feels suspiciously like discontent that leads us to wonder if we should be doing something differently.



Whatever leads you to the brink of change, taking the steps to refresh or reset your life can be daunting.

Today I found myself doing something annoying. I was pulling together an invoice and had questions about who had been paid this, and how much we’d paid for that. I knew we had the information somewhere in the office, most likely in a file marked “project expenses”. However, I found myself calling out to my assistant and asking her. I reasoned that she would know right where to look and be able to put her hands on the needed documents faster.

According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, up to 60 percent of men and 50 percent of women will experience a traumatic event at least once in their lives. These numbers become even more staggering for veterans, particularly those who have been to war. The adjustment back to civilian life comes with many challenges, especially when the veteran suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Time. We all have 168 hours a week. How we allocate that time is just as different and unique as we are as individuals. However, there are many of us who wish for “just a few more hours in the day” to get things done.

I recently read an article that estimated that consumers are presented with 3,000-4,000 pieces of marketing content per day. Per day. As you can imagine, with that influx of information, it is sometimes hard for content creators to make a connection with readers.

Recent conversations about work/life balance have got me thinking. Work is work – you know what your job is and, while daily tasks may vary, you clock in and (eventually) clock out. Life on the other hand, can be comprised of home, children, pets, and the associated errands, tasks, picking up, carpooling, maintenance, bill paying lawn care, and all of the wonderful stuff that goes along with it. There are always things vying for your attention. But what about finding time for yourself?
