Unplugged.

If you’ve been keeping up with my blog posts over the past couple of weeks, you’ll know that I’m just slightly obsessed (ahem) with technology. I’m one of those people who never leaves the house without spare cables and multiple charging options (including my funky little solar charger that I got off Kickstarter!) and whose first items in any...

The Gentle Art of Self Care

Self-care is one of my big challenges As a solo-preneur, it’s not unusual that I work 6 days a week.  Sometimes 7, though I try to avoid that. The nature of my business is that I need to take work when it comes, and often it comes all at once. Last week I had 3 workshops, a webinar, a coaching session and a full afternoon strategy session with a non-profit....

Celtic Christian Prayer – Loving it!

I’m currently reading through (and LOVING) Stephen Lawhead’s Pendragon Cycle. Currently I’m half way through Arthur, the third book in the series. These books are not only examples of great story-telling, Lawhead weaves in Celtic faith and shares some of the monastery lives of people in those times. They also have a few of the Celtic Christian...

Anti-perfectionism

I used to strive for perfect (OK, I admit, I often still do…) When I took something on it was all or nothing. I have to say that that mindset has allowed me to achieve some pretty awesome things. It has also been the source of a great mess in many other areas. Here’s an example: When my son was born (in France) I got my hands on a book called...

Staying On Track- Extreme Productivity

I am fascinated by technology. My husband and son have a challenge going to see how many pieces of technology they can get me addicted to at the same time. I have a cell phone, a Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0* tablet, a Samsung Gear Fit watch, a solar charger, wireless sleephones through which I play brain entrainment recordings, and then, of course, my office set-up of...

The Soul-Sucking Art of Legalism

Hello, my name is Darlene Hull and I am a legalist. Sometimes I feel like I should introduce myself like that just to warn people.  I’m not sure where this came from but legalism is such a part of my life that it affects everything.  The first time I actually noticed it was way back in the 80′s when I read Richard Rohr’s book The Enneagram: A...
