A What’s Hot / What’s Not list for your business or career


If you want to get awesome results, you’ve got to get real about what’s currently not-so-awesome. In the Desire Map process you begin by going through a gratitude exercise, followed by a dissatisfaction review. It’s the whole picture, with a ton of love and no-sugar coating.

In our business, we just started doing a What’s Hot/What’s Not check-in. Our Chief of Staff & People Potential, Steph Corker, officially kicked this off on our last big check-in.

How we run meetings. Get personal. Get down to business. Get it done.


Being a virtual company is mostly all great — the freedom, working in your yoga pants with a puppy on your lap — or from a hotel room, solitude to create.

It’s hard to free-flow with a whole team on the phone — you can’t read people’s faces, energy gets trickier, there are awkward pauses. Add the fact that I’m an awful facilitator, and it meant that the team phone meetings were killin’ me. I figured out that structure would be our salvation. And it has been. We’ve definitely evolved from frustration to elation on the team meets.

Cheap easy. Quality easy. And The Myth of Endurance.


What would your life be like if you only did what was easy? It’s almost unsettling to go there, isn’t it? When I use to try to answer that question for myself I’d squirm a bit. Lazy dilettante. As if. What would I do with all that extra time I’d have if I just did the easy stuff? Hmmm . . . maybe I’d have more time to enjoy what I’ve got and to get more of what I want. Maybe things would be . . . easier…

Champagne & happy tears. It’s your turn to lead. The Desire Map Licensing Program launches TODAY. For real. For everyone.


There have been plenty of times in the last few months where I sat at my desk and let the tears roll. Happy tears of “Holy, what, really?!” Like when I saw the pictures of the first Desire Map workshop that was being taught — without me. And the women were laughing, posting core desired feelings on sticky notes, and building a “desire altar.” I just whispered to myself, “Wow, it’s happening.” I was a puddle that day. And I’ll probably cry writing this post. Because it’s a very, very big day…

What it takes to make good stuff in the world. Creativity, cadence, core desired feelings.


CREATIVITY. CADENCE. CORE DESIRED FEELINGS. What it takes to make good stuff in the world. Notice when your dream has come true. If you’re addicted to accomplishing things, you might miss the fact that you’ve actually accomplished something pretty awesome.

You probably have notebooks of ideas. You may have ideas you haven’t told anyone about. There are ideas that the cosmos is waiting to tell YOU about it. Stop. Shhh. Did you hear that? It’s your next big idea. Stay still long enough and you’ll hear how to make it happen.
