How To Hiatus + the YOU Economy: The June Roundup

I packed June with overcoming head barriers and wiping out stale energy. Team D spruced + juiced throughout a digital hiatus and now we’re refreshed.

Make changes without criticizing the past — your future will thank you for it.

Good design, co-creating + the barriers in your head. In conversation with Tara Gentile.
How do you use the visual language of design to better spread your message to the right people? What is the greatest barrier to entrepreneurship now? Is it all in our heads? How do you determine who you co-create with? … and more.

Under my on-line hood: some philosophy + a bit of gear.
Seth Godin explained where his blog comes from, and his answers matched with a lot of the questions that I’m often asked. Here’s my very transparent version…

Sprucing + Juicing. An ode to The Hiatus, and why I’m taking one (and you should too.) When to Take A Hiatus and How to Make A Hiatus Extra Useful and Holy … Burn out is an obvious time to hiatus. But there’s a difference between taking time to recover, and making space in which to prepare for The New…

How to navigate uncertainty and give birth to stars (and what happened on my hiatus)

Recharge and reach for the stars,

You are worthy of your desires

Feminism is consciousness. Lessons for my imaginary daughter & women — including Kim Kardashian.

You’re cosmic. You are winged with light. And that means you have the power to get where you want to go, to see what’s really going on in a situation, to make excellent decisions.

Recovering from self-help exhaustion? Join the club.

My friend Jess Ortner and I had a great conversation about the downer of always trying to be up. Perfect for her podcast called Adventures in Happiness. This is one of my favourite, truly useful conversations for being on the so-called “Path”.

Just don’t expect crazy people to be sane (cause that’s crazy).

How gentleness creates the big breakthrough

The most powerful practice of all has nothing to do with motivation or endurance. The most powerful pain remedy, elixir, solution, galvanizer, waker-upper, injection of strength is…gentleness.
