Our plans don’t always go according to…well…plan. Speed bumps, detours, and roadblocks can get in our way. On this episode we’ll explore how to recognize them for what they are, and work with these disruptions to make our plans actually happen
Don’t you wish it was always that easy? Taking a pill and your problem is solved? Maybe in 30 minutes…or 7 days. Presto-change-o: fill the prescription, take the medicine. And you’re all better.

So often we look at other people, and think they have it all together. Maybe you’ve even thought that about me. (Probably not if you’ve listened to this podcast much.) But who really knows exactly what to do all the time? Whose plans work exactly as planned? So much of life is trying stuff to see if it works…and adjusting when it doesn’t. On this episode we get real about just how much we can actually know, killing perfectionism once and for all, and the surprising element that all true success shares.
Last week I attended the Podcast Movement Conference in California. It was the first time I’d gone, and wasn’t sure what to expect. As the time got closer, I wondered if I should even go at all.

If you’ve read my blog for a while, you know I have a full-time job as well as this blog and a podcast. Not only that, but I’ve been traveling most weeks from CT to NC for business. Add on my music ministry at church and the normal responsibilities of a homeowner and just… well…life, and it’s quite a juggling act.
You may be judging yourself by comparison. You may be asking yourself, “How does she do it all?”
You’ve heard E=mc² and 1+1 = 2. Well, now there’s A+I=P. On this episode you’ll hear why this matters to much to you and your success.
It was February, 2012. My boss had been laid off a few months earlier, and we had a new manager. He decided to make sweeping changes to the organization. The effect on me and my team was this: my team was split up between two of my peers, and I was given a newly-created role – Strategic Planning and Process Design.
It sounded like a job title they give someone who they don’t know what to do with and are trying to find a way to get them to leave.
