The HEART of your Success

The Wednesdays With Wayne challenge: Design what it will take to make this year your best year yet and creating the new version of your Best Self. What struck …

Important Small Stuff

It’s the small stuff that makes a difference.  It’s the small stuff over and over again. It’s the smile along with a soft, yet energetic “good morning.” It’s holding a door.  It’s telling someone the thing they needed to hear. It’s the small stuff over and over again that makes a difference. A little while ago I wrote a Wednesdays …

You, The Time Traveler

If you could go back in time and change just one thing for yourself, what would it be?  In this week’s Wednesdays With Wayne, you get to time-travel just a bit. Traveling back in time twenty years ago, if you changed just one thing back then, it would have made a difference to you today, wouldn’t it? The same is …

Don’t Aim For Perfection

The local antique store inspires this week’s Wednesdays With Wayne.  There, I found this lamp, it has beautiful crystal dangly things (I’m not the antique shopper, I just know what’s pretty to me).  My wife liked it. She and Ali, the shopkeeper, got into a discussion about the lamp. Ali noted that it really was a beautiful lamp, she told …

Bringing Your Happy

Last week, some of you responded to my Wednesdays With Wayne by honoring me and telling me how much my writing meant.  Each note, each parade (or GIF of such), made me smile! Thank you! Since then, I’ve had a few people comment on my ability to bounce into a room, smiling.  I almost always wake up that way. When …

We All Just Want This One Thing

Heyyyyy!  I’ve been writing a weekly blog for two years.  That’s right, this is Wednesdays With Wayne number 104!!!  I think I’d like a parade or something.  Actually, just drop a note that says, “that’s cool” or something.   Which brings you to today’s topic – We All Just Want This One Thing…  when you get it, you feel good. …

It’ll All Work Out

What if it all works out okay? No one ever worries about that, right?   Don’t you usually get your undies in a bundle thinking about all of the things that could go wrong?  Being prepared is good. Obsessing over something that’s not likely to happen could have negative effects on your work performance, your “at home” performance, and ultimately, …

The Four Words To Turn It Around!

A friend of mine brought a rescue breath to me by reminding me of something.  He said just four words to me and I think those words actually changed my life.  At least, they (re)opened my eyes and I began to see beyond the details that felt like they were burying me. Your Wednesdays With Wayne this week is here! …

Wow, That Was Messy!

  Oh my goodness, that’s messy! Is it, or is it that your life is all on track? Everything is falling into place perfectly.  Birds sing and fold your laundry, taking it from the line where it was hung, and unicorns float by on their rainbow paths.   What kind of fantasy poop is that? The truth is, your life …

That Pebble In Your Shoe

It’s the small stuff.  The little acts, thoughts, or gestures we make, the dialogue we have with ourselves and what we encourage or tolerate from others, how we step into or away from each situation time after time after time – that’s what makes us who we are. A pebble is a really, really small thing.  Until… you find it …
