Select 2016 Blog Posts

Below is a list of select blog posts from 2016. Not surprisingly, many were on the topic of how to stay productive and otherwise cope during challenging times.

Also, I want to remind you that coaching is a fun and empowering way to start the new year, and nothing catalyzes progress faster. I take on a few new coaching clients every season, and work especially well with people who like a compassionate, yet direct and efficient, approach. If you think you’d like to work with me please check out my coaching page.

Thanks to everyone who supported me, professionally, personally, and politically, during 2016. We’re in for some challenging times, but we’ll get through them the way we always do: together. Many people in the U.S. and elsewhere have indicated a desire to be more politically active in 2017 and I will be providing tips for doing that in the next newsletter.

    I loved your book. I have read many books on writing over the years, but I think yours has been the most helpful to me. I am taking steps against my perfectionism now, including tweeting my short poems @rebeccahartog

    Thank you very much!
