Suffering Is …

Suffering is arguing with reality. A lesson I come back to time and time again. One of my favorite quotes: How to make God laugh: tell her your plans. We make goals and we’re disciplined and we stay the course and the results don’t manifest, the curve balls keep coming, the obstacles seem endless. We curse inspiration. We blame everyone...

The Challenge: Don’t throw in the towel just yet! (Bonus included)

Looking back on my Passion Planner for 20-15, I’ve got to get some serious hustle in my step. We have about 90 days left in the year, and this is where most people throw in the towel. I used to be one of those people, making that January hurdle that much more difficult to climb. Makes sense with all we... Read More

July 21st: A day to remember

kat hurley, dreambomb, change you
Over the years this particular day has grown more and more special to me. For starters, it is my beautiful mom’s birthday. So nearly every year since I was a kid, I’ve taken a few minutes to send good wishes and imagine what we’d be doing together to celebrate if she were here. For many years this was a sad... Read More

I Can Get Down With the Sheep

Happy Lunar New Year! Although I lived in Hong Kong for a year, I left ignorant of what all this Ram, Sheep, Goat stuff means. It is only in the last couple years hanging out with all these yogis that I’m starting to understand, and respect, the lingo and traditions.

The most compelling goals are those that have an emotional element. “You need to find a personal hook,” says Martha Carnahan, a business and... Read More

I’m a big fan of do-overs. Lord knows I’ve had several to get where I am today. And for that reason, I’m holding the second annual (because the first one rocked!): Resolution Rewind: 1 Goal, 4-Weeks, No Excuses. There are many reasons why New Year’s Resolutions don’t stick.  For starters: “We don’t think our way into acting. We, instead, must... Read More

Become Your Dream

I read recently: There’s a reason MLK never said, “I have a goal.” I can’t remember who it was, but I had that “Amen” response I get sometimes when I agree with my whole self. He didn’t have a goal, he had a dream. A beautiful vivid vision for all of us, for generations to come, to adopt. Goals don’t... Read More
