Sometimes it seems like nothing works the way it should. If you’re human, at one time in your life you have probably hit that point where work was no fun, every relationship was a struggle and you didn’t even feel comfortable in your body.
At times like these, changing your life can seem overwhelming. There’s so much to do…where do you even start?
It’s really quite simple—just change ONE SMALL thing.
Eliminate one unhealthy food from your diet. Do one unselfish act of kindness for a loved one with no expectation of anything in return. Find one thing about your job you can be grateful for. Take a different route to work one day. Any simple change has the potential to dramatically change your perspective and transform your life.
When a ship at sea changes course by just one degree, 100 miles later it’s in completely different, potentially smoother, waters than it would have been without that small modification in direction.
The most profound shifts are the ones you make on the inside. One of the great miracles in life is how even a small change in your perception can dramatically expand your perspective. Annoyance can easily be turned into curiosity. Frustration can be flipped to become gratitude. Even anger can be transformed into fuel for some much-needed exercise.
You don’t have to tackle your whole world all at once, just make one simple shift, take one small Baby Step.
The best part? Experiment freely! If you don’t prefer your new perspective, you can always go back to your old one or pick another new one.
What “one-degree” shift can YOU make TODAY to Baby Step your way to a more fulfilling life?

I am retired from 40+ years of helping individuals and teams build lives and organizations they love. One of the great joys of my retirement from professional practice is having greater bandwidth to donate my professional and creative talents to support and promote animal and social welfare charities.
During my 30 years as an organization transformation consultant, I served as a senior partner in four of the world’s largest, most prestigious global professional services firms. In 2005, I took a five-year sabbatical to find healing and peace because non-stop work had taken its toll.
My recovery from burnout led to finding my purpose guiding others on their journeys. As a board-certified coach, author, consultant, radio host, Reiki Master and EFT/tapping practitioner, I share hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world.
111419 DJW Sid CH Pet Corner Photo ShootI help clients achieve rapid, extraordinary, sustainable results by connecting who they are with what they do, a connection often lost through stress and the sheer busy-ness of daily life. Courageous self-awareness and unconditional self-love lead to honest choices based on priorities that nurture you and those around you on a journey to wholeness.
Decades in coaching, consulting, change management, organization development, human resources and mixed media artistic expression honed my business sense, professionalism, creativity, intuition, leadership and communication skills. The result? Practical tools that help you become more insightful, creative, committed, productive and fulfilled.
Even the most dedicated and hard-working individuals can shift from frustration to a sense of futility when their values, passion, work, and lives become disconnected. One of the problems with not taking care of our health is that the effects of ignoring it are often slow to show up. We continue to juggle family responsibilities, work and finances until we lose ourselves, waking up one day 50 pounds heavier in body and soul—no good to ourselves or anyone else.
I love working with people who are ready to take life-changing action to make their dreams a reality. At each moment, you have inside you all the wisdom you seek to choose your life and your way of showing up. Limiting thoughts, beliefs and feelings can block you from moving forward. An absence of love and concern for yourself can result in negative head talk that holds you back with discouraging messages about who you are and what you can do.
By listening and caring deeply, I guide you in connecting with your own inner wisdom. We identify the way you’d like to live. We determine what’s blocking you and release you from the hold those blocks have over you—unleashing the positive energy that will fuel you forward. Together we develop a plan to move you closer to your heart’s desire.
My books, blog, radio show and signature coaching programs help individuals and organizations harness the transformative energy of love to turn unexplored possibilities into fulfilling realities and step into their greatness. What’s love got to do with it? Everything! My book, Choose Your Energy: Change Your Life! (Hay House/ Balboa Press 2013) shares my story and the stories of 10 of my clients along with my signature Discovery Framework.
For fun, I love reading, sewing, knitting, yin yoga, afternoon tea, opera and movies. I live in Williamsburg, Virginia with my spouse, Wilson Abney, and the cat who runs our life, Maisy Jane.
