And my star is born

Last year, during these very hours (January 23rd), my wife went full-on into labor.  We visited the midwife, did some last-minute grocery shopping, and came home to chill out (as best as our Hypnobirthing techniques enabled us to do).  By three in the morning on...

Personal Development: What Snowstorms Teach Us about Overcoming Procrastination

The first snowstorm of the year is always exciting, especially when it arrives in the middle of the night, and we wake up to a world that looks totally different than it did mere hours before. Then reality sets in: how to MOVE all that snow? That’s what I’m thinking about right now, as I type this post. And I just realized that shoveling snow is about more than shoveling snow. It’s about procrastination, and the way we wrestle with everything we want to accomplish in our lives. Just as there are many different options for getting the snow off your driveway, there are many ways to overcome the influence of procrastination in your life. Imagine that the “things you want to get done” in your life is like having a driveway full of that white stuff. And more is coming down. The beauty is that any way you approach it, you will clear your driveway.

    July 8, 2019 by Akmommaof2 from United States

    I love almost all of the podcasts!! My only complaint is when he switched to putting his adds in the middle of everything after you’re engaged, tends to throw me off! Not sure about everyone else?

  • Not a Substitute for Therapy but Pretty Dang Close
    July 4, 2019 by FreeziePop from United States

    As a therapist myself, I use this as supplemental to my partner’s and my couple’s counseling with positive outcomes. Well produced show with extremely knowledgeable and well known/renowned guests (in the mental health field).

  • Remarkable Resource
    July 1, 2019 by Brandon MS from United States

    Neil is a gifted interviewer who brings information that is helpful for laypeople as well as professionals. I am a marriage and family therapist, as a busy mom and clinician I have found this podcast extremely helpful in pointing me toward what I want to invest time reading more about. I often forward podcasts to my clients to have them listen as well. Thank you Neil!

  • Every couple should listen!
    June 20, 2019 by christiane Citrus Love Blog from Canada

    I found this podcast searching for a guest...Harville Hendrix and absolutely loved Neil’s way of interviewing. His questions are different, specific, well researched actionable steps to follow and smart without being boring. I’m hooked and can’t stop listening to his episodes!
