Conquer Negative Self Talk

Cindy Jobs Health and Well-Being, Organization, Uncategorized

“I’ve never been able to do that, why even try?” “I’ll never get that job, why apply?” “I can’t do anything right.” “No one wants to spend time with me.” “I’m never going to be as fun (pretty, smart, successful, etc.) as my friends are.” Every thought we …

ADHD: You Are Not Who You Think You Are

Cindy Jobs Health and Well-Being, Organization, Uncategorized

“You mean I’m not lazy, stupid or crazy?”* You are also NOT: Unmotivated. Unwilling to apply yourself or try hard enough. Uninterested. Unconcerned about others. Unable to focus. Your ADHD symptoms. Who your parents/teachers/friends/relatives may have told you you are. You DO have a non-neurotypical brain that reacts …

The power of mind mapping.

Cindy Jobs Uncategorized

Sometimes making progress is really, really hard.  Even when we have a very clear idea of where we want to end up, we just can’t seem to make it through the decision-making and execution process. Why is that? There are too many options. The scope is ambiguous. We …

“I don’t know.”

Cindy Jobs Organization, Uncategorized

“I don’t know.” was one of the phrases I previously feared using the most. Now I embrace it. What did I used to think “I don’t know.” said about me? I was uninformed. I was unprepared. I wasn’t as good as someone else. I was vulnerable and weak. …

“I need to change everything.” This is the answer I get most often from my clients when asked what they’d like to focus on first in our coaching or organizing partnership.   But, change takes focus and we can’t focus on everything at the same time, right? One of …

Old Dog, New Tricks

Cindy Jobs Organization, Uncategorized

How often have we heard the phrase “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” Thirty years ago neural researchers would have sworn that mental development ended in your twenties.  The prevailing theory was that “the brain simply didn’t undergo any significant change in capacity after late adolescence” …

Photo: Ales Krivec Spring.  It’s refreshing.  Flowers are blooming.  Birds are singing.  Life is magical . . . if it weren’t for all that dog-gone Spring Cleaning guilt.  Clean the carpets.  Clean the windows.  Clean the garage.  Clear out the clutter. One of the quickest ways to give …

Balance: Self Value vs Stuff Value

Cindy Jobs Organization, Uncategorized

Balance is a tricky thing.  Too much of one thing tips the scales in the other direction and we get totally out of balance. But balance is not just about stuff vs space (although stuff vs space is a huge issue for a lot of people).  For some …

Step five. Step three. Step one. Nope.

Cindy Jobs Uncategorized

I watched a sitcom the other day where one of the characters introduced the family to her new dog.  The look of confusion on their faces indicated having a dog made absolutely no sense.  But then she explained: Step 5: She had a dog because .  . . …

Cindy Jobs Organization, Uncategorized

When I start working with clients I ask them to describe two visions: Where are you right now? Where do you want to be? With those two questions clearly understood, we can start the process of change that moves someone from where they are now, to where they …
