A Life of Mistakes

April 30th, 2016 by Maryanne Honeycutt

Many people try to predict the Kentucky Derby winner, and before the first Saturday in May, there are a lot of different theories as to why one particular horse will be this year’s winner.  The sport commentator’s analysis of Mohaymen, a horse who only career loss in the Florida Derby last month, caught my attention. His […]

Make Time for What Is Important to YOU!

June 10th, 2014 by Maryanne Honeycutt

“Make Time for What Is Important to YOU!” was the title of a women’s group presentation last week, and like so many, the women felt the stress of having so much on their plate that is seemed impossible to get the important things done. The to do list gets longer rather than shorter and easy to […]

Tips & tricks for keeping resolutions alive

January 30th, 2014 by Maryanne Honeycutt

It’s great to hear success stories of my clients and friends keeping their New Year’s resolutions and getting results.

There’s a Hole in my Sidewalk

March 18th, 2013 by Maryanne Honeycutt

This is one of my favorite poems right now, “There’s a Hole in my Sidewalk“ by Portia Nelson Chapter 1. I walk down the street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I fall in. I am lost… I am helpless. It isn’t my fault. It takes forever to find a way out. Chapter […]

You Can’t Predict a Breakthrough

May 31st, 2012 by Maryanne Honeycutt

Remember the pogo stick?  Other than riding a bike without training wheels, it was one of the first activities I remember having to really practice over and over again before I got it. To get just a couple of jumps on this one-legged device before falling off was tough in the beginning! Once a couple […]
