We have all of the information that has ever existed in all of the libraries in the world at our fingertips twenty-fours hours a day. In my workshops I often say, "With my three graduate degrees and a token I can ride the bus all day. All of the information in the world is useless if it doesn't lead to transformation."

In autumn, the world seems cool in a way that I think we should pay attention to and carry with us throughout the year. So, cool down! Take a cue from Mother Nature and chill out. Chilling out is a treat, a period of change between intensity and rest.

The problem with asking people to make organizational change is that there's no apparent benefit for them. The leader is excited because they see the payoff. But the people are the ones who have to do all the work.

Even if we succeed in the short term, giving up our bad habits or willing our way into new ones, the moment our focus shifts and our effort dips, we'll slip right back into doing things the way they've made sense to us all along.

Dreams remain just that until you take action toward their reality. Giant leaps are great, but there is power in small steps. Even a single, small step toward something you really want breathes life into that thing and announces that you are ready. It gives you energy toward the next step.

With age and experience, I know now that it's possible I would have just stepped into my mother's shoes, maybe not as a waitress, but as some other hard-working female who never got to live her dreams. This would have been what my mom called "life" but for me it would have been death.
