A Cup of Coffee and a Conversation
Welcome back to the weekend!
Let’s take a walk and a thermos of coffee with us today. It is beautiful and I would enjoy the stroll.
If we were having coffee I would tell you I listened to Brene Brown’s podcast this week about a books called Stretch. It is about resourcefulness and based on science. I put a hold on it from the library and am excited to read it. The interview on the podcast was fun and interesting.
If we were having coffee I would tell you I revisited the pyramid of mastery this week. I know it is not exclusive to Tony Robbins but it is where most of my training on the matter comes from. I examined where in my life I am right now in each area on a scale from 1-10. Body, Emotions, Relationships, Time, Mission, Finances, and Contribution. I find it a good practice to revisit the 7 areas to check in. At the beginning of June I did the same exercise.
If we were having coffee I would tell you I got the newsletter out on time another week! This week’s topic was about all the areas we receive feedback in our lives. Specifically, about all the areas I received feedback over the past week. If you are not a subscriber to the newsletter, I would love to have you!

If we were having coffee I would tell you I published the first part of my conversation workshop. I made a video to go with the slides explaining the three experiment choices so the conversation can be rich. I did my own conversation experiment this week as well and was surprised at how deep the conversation got so quickly.
If we were having coffee I would remind you Labor Day was just last Monday. I did a lot of driving that day shuffling kids. Everyone was super sleepy from being in the river and kayaking the day before. I was glad to listen to some podcasts during the time.
If we were having coffee I would tell you I started week 7 of the Artist’s Way this week. I like the tasks. This is the week with the Jealousy Map exercise and a lot of sentence stems to finish. I feel I know myself better now and it was easier to answer than the other times I have done the program.
If we were having coffee I would tell you I answered my morning and evening questions every day in my notebook. I enjoy the feedback it gives me. It helps me to be more intentional with my tasks as well.
If we were having coffee I would tell you I got the podcast out on Friday but a little later in the day. It is about my personal rules of writing. If you would like to take a listen you can go here or search on Spotify.
Thank you for joining me for a chat this week! I hope your week was full of sparkle and delight!
I combined the Sarah Selecky daily prompt with the Storyaday prompt every day for my fiction writing. It was fun and added a layer to the challenge.
