Years ago and the day before my first visit to the Donna Karan Company to meet Donna and her senior leadership team, I spent a lot of time thinking about and planning what I would wear. At the time I did not own one piece of her line of clothing, although I would have loved to. Instead I would buy designer clothes only when they were on sale, and I did not have a favorite designer.

Simple mindfulness exercise for staying calm & centered. Greetings readers! Work can be hard. We’re all susceptible to stress and anxiety, but there are ways to counteract these things.

911 remembering connection
The insane media coverage of the ten-year anniversary of 9/11 has given me pause. It is a reminder  to build relationships and community, and to value those things in our lives and our work. Despite the overload I feel when I read or watch the news today, I believe it's important for us to remember. And even more important, to be inspired to be the best of ourselves. I remember walking through the Manhattan streets that day, watching paper fall and swirl around in a light wind. The streets were almost empty by 7pm, but small groups were clustered together...
