Making a Molehill out of a Mountain

Making a Molehill out of a Mountain Chances are that at some point in our lives, we have taken a trivial challenge and perceived it to be bigger than it is, a behavior more commonly known as making “a mountain out of a molehill”. The question is can we flip this idea on its head and make a molehill out of a mountain? The simple answer is Yes. Let’s explore this further.  Of course when we are talking trivial challenges those are easy to tackle. Even when the challenge seems insurmountable at first, I have found that there is always …

Book Journey Update: Podcasts & Talks

Greetings! Things have been much of a roller coaster for me over the last 4 weeks and hence the long silence. My sincere apologies. I had to go to India for over 2 weeks to participate in family rituals after the passing of both my parents over the last 9 months.  My mom passed away unexpectedly in March 2021 and was followed by my Dad in Jan 2022.

It is then I realized the importance of showing up, not just for myself, but also for those young kids.  Showing up can mean …

Create Your Village

There is only so much you can do with your own energy. I have realized you need the energy of others to get inspired, to do more  We all know that it takes a village to be successful, whether it is in an individual sport like running or in a team sport when you are leading an organization. A question that I have been often asked is how do you create your own village: My first response will be to ask you “Are you part of someone else’s village?” If the answer is no, then I would urge you to …
