The Managerial Mindset that Wouldn’t Let Go

Do you ever feel like the pottery teacher below? Or like Sally Forth in the cartoon?

Sally Forth Manager OR

Sometimes it’s hard to switch gears when we need to. 

We can’t “do” play like we do work – or not successfully, anyway. We can’t “do” love the same way we do work either.

Sally turns her leisure into a project just as many of us turn relationships into projects – which sucks all the fun and life out of them. Don’t do that. Don’t let your personal life become the victim of a managerial mindset that won’t let go. 


It’s Saturday. I’m sinking into silence and wholeness. I thought it would be fun to post this. I’m listening to some amazing songs on my Anna Nalick Pandora station as I type. 

It’s the kind of day that asks little of my management skills. 


Happy Birthday, Angela. You are a the perfect co-traveler to “turn the wheel” and “throw some pots” with on days like today. Thanks for playing with me.
