Donna Zajonc and David Emerald do amazing work in the field of Recovery from the DDT (Dreaded Drama Triangle). I have learned from them and am a certified practitioner in the Power of T.E.D.* (*The Empowerment Dynamic) as well. Today Donna posted an article today about Weapons of Mass Distraction that caught my attention.
How often do we use our devices as distraction to keep from feeling? Is there such a thing as addicted to technology? Do our brains crave the relief of dissociating from our bodies and engaging in drama outside of the mundane daily dreadmill?
Smart phones, I-pads, social media, gaming systems. Frequent notifications, reminders, calls, ads, news flashes and spam folders. Why do you think we resist setting boundaries around these sanity suckers?
I'd love to hear your comments below.
If you are codependent you may have trouble leading others and building a cohesive team because you need their approval or their permission. Instead you may hold yourself back so they feel comfortable.
My experience with leadership is that it contains one part each of character, ability, and faith. While techniques can be picked up along the way to enhance skills, I always recognize a certain “je ne sais quoi” essence about leaders I admire.
Authentic leadership involves a rock-solid understanding of who you are, belief in the foundational goodness of others (even in the face of evidence to the contrary), and an enduring optimism and faith that all your efforts will eventually come to fruition.
Leaders sell – themselves, their ideas, and the emotional benefits of following. Every day, workers are confronted with the stereotype that women 'take care' and men 'take charge.'
Any great leader is a visionary. I truly believe that without a vision, the people perish. (Proverbs 29:18). A good vision is compelling and draws people to follow. Without people who follow, you cannot lead. Richard Schubert, Red Cross Director, said “How you attract and motivate people determines your success as a leader.”

The holidays are rapidly approaching and there's no time to waste.
Here's the short version of Section 3 of my book, "25 Ways to Win: The Pocket Guide to Addiction Recovery."
1. Have a Daily Plan
2. Get a Buddy or Two
3. Dare to Dream
4. Embrace Grace
5. Become a Safe Person
If you have trouble doing these things, call me to see if I can help you get focused on living your dreams without drama.
If you haven't already done it, buy the book to help you stay safe and sane during this holiday season. Keep it for yourself, use is as a discussion tool for couples, or give it away to friends as a Pre-Holiday gift before addiction takes all the fun out of yet another holiday.
What an amazing summer this has been.
Unfettered by diets and the internal drama that surrounds what is eaten, where, when, with whom, at what pace, in what quantities, with what ingredients.
On may way to Hawaii, flying first class, where I will be working and playing for nearly two weeks. This is the life I imagined. This is the life I dreamed of. This is the life I created. And you can, too.
Question of the day: What if?
What if you could have anything you wanted? Be anything you wanted? Do anything you wanted? What if you knew you could not fail?
What is your heart's desire?
If you can dream it, you can do it. Need help implementing? Call me.
I want to thank all of you who have purchased the book, came to hear me speak, or shared it with friends and family. I hope it has brought hope and healing to your lives.
I have completed the quasi-study on this blog and it will remain so that anyone who picks up the book and wants to go it alone can come here anonymously and dig a little deeper with us.
I am available for interviews, speaking engagements, workshops and retreats. Call 509-593-4989 for details.
