    Judging Other People

    Whenever we judge someone, we want them to be different.

    Wouldn't it be great if we could tell adults how to behave, and they would just do what we tell them to do?

    What I'm offering in this episode is a way for you to take control of your time, energy and brainpower to use them in a way that's more impactful than staying stuck in the feeling anger, resentment or annoyance.

    Brain Management 2.0: Predicting Outcomes

    Brain Management 2.0: Predicting Outcomes

    Our brain isn't great at predicting outcomes.

    When we're faced with decisions or new circumstances, our brain goes directly to doubt and fear to keep us safe.

    If we have doubt and fear, then we won't take any new action, which assures our safety.

    If we don't manage our brains instead of them acting from default, we won't get closer to our goals.

    How to Stop Feeling Behind

    "How do I stop feeling behind?" is one of the most common questions I get asked by lawyers.

    If you want to stop feeling behind, it starts with one secret: understanding how your mind works.

    Once you understand how your mind works, then you can begin changing the habit that has you feeling behind.

    I walk you step-by-step through how you can use this new understanding of your brain to take more impactful actions towards your goals.

    Opportunity Overwhelm

    Opportunity Overwhelm

    One of the issues that a lot of lawyers come to me with is they know that there's something tugging at them to do more than what they're currently doing, but they don't know where to start.

    There's so many things that they want to do, they get overwhelmed.

    In this podcast, I'm sharing an exercise to help you get clear and some mindset shifts to help you take action.

Great timing, great podcast

I would have thought at 52 I’d have a better handle on why I felt dissatisfied with a recent change in firms. To quote one my favorite movies, Dina is “a voice of reason in a time of great madness.” Her wisdom allowed me to recenter myself and realize I’m in control of keeping myself there.

Useful, practical, and easy to listen to.

I started listening to the podcast a few months ago. I found the topics and information useful. Dina comes across approachable and sincere. She is speaking from experience. What I also like about it is there are no overly complicated theories on how to deal with topics presented. The podcast references life strategies directed sometimes specifically to lawyers but it can be applied to anyone with a busy lifestyle. Highly recommend making it a regular part of your day.
