Waiting to See what you Might Do

January 22, 2015

There is an idea I’ve been playing with lately—especially in the midst of visionaries, New Years’ resolution-ers, and game-planners. It’s the idea of waiting to see what you might do.  Waiting to see what you might do is in contrast to deciding what to do. It’s the opposite of mentally making a choice, or coming […]

Why Willpower Doesn’t Work

January 8, 2015

I just found out that my upcoming book (it’ll be published by New Harbinger this time next year) will be called The Little Book of Big Change: The No-Willpower Approach to Breaking any Habit. Although I wouldn’t have necessarily thought to describe it as a “no-willpower approach”, it is an accurate description. It’s not that […]

Playing Dysfunctional Family Bingo–A Conversation about Expectations, Compassion, and Family

December 22, 2014

I loved this conversation with Lian Brook-Tyler, the wise soul behind the Born Happy website.  I told her about the Dysfunctional Family Bingo game (you know it, right?!?), and that spilled into all kinds of practical, deep conversation centered on having truly peaceful holidays (and life, really) no matter what your situation might be. Please […]

An Invaluable Understanding

December 18, 2014

You’re never going to hear me tell you how to discipline your kid, when to ask for a raise at work, or what you should eat for dinner. I couldn’t possibly know the answers to those questions for you.  I barely know them for myself at times. What I can provide–which is enormously more helpful […]

One Simple Question for Happier Relationships

December 4, 2014

The statement “what were you thinking?!” is very different than the question “what were you thinking?” The statement “what were you thinking?!” says: you’re crazy, you’re wrong, you clearly were not thinking, you should have done things differently. The question “what were you thinking?” says: help me understand where you’re coming from… Read the rest […]

How to Share the Truth (with Wisdom by Willow)

November 20, 2014

I get a lot of questions about how we can teach the things I write about to young children.   Raising children who see the truth about their nature, who are comfortable with emotion, and who know how their experience is created, is a big deal. It’s no exaggeration to say that this understanding could […]

How to Stop Binge Eating

November 13, 2014

Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is the most common eating disorder in America, affecting roughly 3% of the population. That’s probably an understatement, and that’s still millions of people. And although BED is the most prevalent diagnosed eating disorder, it is also the most misunderstood. BED has nothing to do with willpower or discipline. It’s not […]

When we Fear Emotion

November 13, 2014

A woman was recently telling me how emotions were not okay in the family in which she grew up.   Feeling bad—and being honest about it—w as not an option. So she learned to pretend that she was feeling okay when she was not. She began to carry on as if everything were wonderful when […]

Your Problems are not about You

November 6, 2014

I have a friend whose husband just walked out on her and her three young children. She is barely getting by financially, she has some mounting health issues due to the stress she’s experiencing, and she is caring for an elderly parent.  Her circumstances are tough in a way that I can’t pretend to understand.
