What My Son is Teaching Me About Cultivating Intrinsic Motivation

My sister took this picture of our son, Owen, at his first cross country meet this fall. 

I love this picture because you can see & feel the sheer determination, grit, and intrinsic motivation bursting through every muscle and cell of his being.

And it's exciting....because it wasn't always like this with Owen.

When he was in 3rd grade, Owen participated in a community event called The...

AND...for goodness sakes...life is constantly going to keep throwing things at us that are heavy & challenging & hard. We need to counter...

I have been listening and observing leaders & employees, tired mamas & exhausted dads...they are all echoing the same sentiment. "Somethings gotta give in terms of how...

Have you reached your Turning Point?

One of our favorite aspects of coaching is the moment when people DECIDE that they are going to try something new. It's a big deal for most people to get out of their comfort zones, take a risk, and approach a part of their lifestyle differently.

We've found that this is particularly true in the area of romantic relationships. What's often the case is that one person wants to try something new,...

Check out the photo we received this week...

On Sunday night, Tyler and I got a text from one of our most recent Couples Connection couples. It's a photo of their love jars that they created after doing Module 4. This is why we love what we do! 

They've been texting us along the way with these messages:

"Module 1 has been such a nice way for us to reconnect."

"After doing Modules 2 & 3, we're realizing that we don't have all...

Relationship feeling like Groundhog's Day?

Is your relationship feeling the groundhog's day effect? We've got a thing for that. It's called Module 4 of our Couples Connection course and it's where we finally get to talk about sex, baby! 

We recommend doing modules 1-3 first so that you're building up the emotional and conversational intimacy with each other, but some folks just dive on in to module 4 right away...

Cabin fever got you feeling more like roommates than lovers? Tyler has a solution...

"Did you change the furnace filter?"

"Do we need more eggs?"

"We have Ayla's teacher conference today at 4."

Not sure if you find yourselves in similar situations, but OMG do we fall into some serious non-spicy relationship ruts! Attempting to claw ones way out of the never.ending.to.do.list quicksand pit is no joke.

To an outsider looking in (or Alexa who is most likely spying on us), our...
