Whether we call it losing or reframe it say “not meeting goals” or “not meeting expectations”, missing, failing or incomplete, suffice to say sometimes we just don’t get the job done.

I Want To Tell You a Vulnerable Story.

Friends and Colleagues, I want to tell you a vulnerable story. One that might help you compartmentalize some of the ongoing stress we’re experiencing. If the story is relatable to you, I hope it helps. My son is 15 – he’s kind, funny, smart, and outspoken. He’s always had a strong constitution and he does […]
