Week 3 of Enjoying and Appreciating Life As It Is

Here’s something you can do at any family gathering or holiday party you attend this year.  Or you can do it on the phone calls we all make this time of year to check in or catch up with family and friends. It costs you nothing and can be worked in any time you are having conversation (or perhaps struggling to have conversation).

Ask folks what their favorite holiday memory is – the one they most enjoy.  And listen, really listen to their story. Take pleasure in their pleasure. You can do this with family, friends, even acquaintances or strangers.  Sharing memories is a nice way to enjoy your life, while helping others enjoy theirs.

Stay tuned for the next issue of the Coach for a Better Life Newsletter – which is published Monday!

Client Stories

When I first met Lori, I was in a rut. Having spent 25 years in the same industry, I was bored, max’d out and didn't know what to do next.  I was pigeon-holed into an industry that I was not so fond of, and saw no way to get out.  I felt trapped. Lori understood my predicament, as she had seen it all before -- she was sympathetic, but resolute in knowing that she could help me find answers.  I took great solace in that! 

Through several sessions and dozens of exercises, I began to get a clearer picture of who I am, and where my strengths and talents truly lie.  Working with Lori, I was able to translate that understanding into updated, targeted resumes that quickly produced interviews and gave me the confidence to express myself better than ever before. 

Consulting a Career Coach should be mandatory for anyone in today's work force, and Lori is the best at her profession.
