    How Much is Enough?

    How Much is Enough?

    Show notes:

    In this episode I pose the question: “How Much is Enough?”  I don’t believe anyone could answer the question for you so today I will pose other questions that help to clarify what's important to you and to know what you really want.

    Books I refer to: The Happiness Curve, by Jonathan Rausch. Rausch digs into the research and makes a compelling argument about aging.

    The Worst Kind of Pressure

    The Worst Kind of Pressure

    In today's episode we will get a better handle on the worst kind of pressure -- the self-inflicted kind. What makes this kind of pressure so bad is that you can often believe it is being created by others but again, it is the guy or gal in the mirror who is the culprit. Please listen and use these suggestions. 

    I also referred to Robert Fritz, Your Life as Art, p. 189.
