36 Life Lessons

I’ve been learning a lot of lessons lately, and since I’m turning 36 I thought writing a post called 36 life lessons would be fitting (and a snazzy title 😉

So in no particular order here are 36 life lessons – Maybe when I’m 72 I’ll write another article with 72 lessons 😉 For now, here goes:

The painful process of waiting and how to deal with it:


Waiting in line

Waiting for the water to boil

Waiting in traffic

Waiting for the doctor

We’re all stuck with waiting on a daily basis, and most of the time it’s fairly easy to get through it. It may seem like forever, but in less than a day (and usually in less than 10 minutes) things start to move again. We get our turn. We move on.

We might deal with waiting in anger, frustration, anxiety, or choose to use the time to practice a body scan and progressive muscle relaxation, meditation in the moment, or read an article on our phone.

Then there are The Big Waiting Games:

Dreams: we all have them, and we remember them some of the time. Dream life is a fun universe you get to enter every night, and sometimes you’ll remember the places you visit.

Dreams have been an area of intrigue for centuries, likely since the beginning of time. Philosophers, poets, writers and psychologists have written at great lengths about their meanings, virtues, significance, and insignificance.

But what if your dreams contained information and insight for you so that you can learn, grow, and make better choices?

What if your dreams could help you grow your business and creative projects?

According to Gayle Delaney, Ph.D. —they can.  And she’s not alone in her research. Her work is so powerful that even Stanford Business School has received her work into their business program.

That’s mind-blowing! A top notch business school being open to something that most people would blow off as flakey and irrelevant? Obviously the results are powerful, and they work.
