Why the Peacock?
I’ve been fascinated with peacocks since childhood. Our neighbor’s screeching peafowl were “noisy” to some, but magical to me. A peacock’s call still evokes that mystical wooded backyard of my youth.
Peacocks symbolize self confidence, magnetism, and beauty without arrogance. Their feathers are said to have protective powers of healing and foresight. Peacocks teach us to strut our stuff with dignity and grace -- great role models as we learn to claim and share our own gifts and talents.
These birds need a tranquil environment to thrive. They might noisily show off their beauty – but come from a centered, un-frenzied space to do it. I find this to be true for me, and most successful business leaders & entrepreneurs, too!

Recalibration Thursday = A Mindset, a [...]
Tweet I truly get off on witnessing a talent shared and embraced. It’s a beautiful thing. Let’s start with dog competitions. I swear, I cry at dog shows and agility trials. There is something about seeing the natural instincts of a particular breed come to life that makes me weep. I once watched a television [...]
Tweet You know all about cluttered spaces. Even if you’re not a clutter person, you probably know someone who is. Or maybe you’ve seen one of those reality TV shows about hoarders. It’s rare to find anyone in Western civilization who hasn’t experienced even a short-term bout of clutter. But what about “idea clutter”? So [...]
Tweet Do certain things about your workplace rub you the wrong way? Do you go home at night and tell your family and friends that, if you were in charge, you would do things differently? It could be a case of mis-aligned values. If your personal values and your company’s values are at odds, it [...]
