A Fresh Look

Sheri Here,

I usually do a quarterly review about this time to see how I’m doing on my annual goals to implement my vision.

But given the significant life event earlier this month, the passing of my husband, I almost think I need to do something more powerful.

Time To Re-evaluate

I think I need to take a step back and revalidate my overall vision. To also relook at my bucket list and my annual goals to see what may no longer be relevant.

Is it too soon, maybe. Yet, I’m feeling fairly strong and confident of the choices I’ve made to this point. It is those things I haven’t thought about that could blindside me.

Get Outside the Comfort Zone

I was talking with a friend the other day about my last book. I really need to step up the marketing, I’ve grown complacent and now I’m still a little scattered. But if I don’t look where I’m going, any road will get me there and I’ll waste my energy, time and money.

Life is still a mystery – it can be very exciting and fun. I’ve already done enough tough times in one lifetime. It’s time to take a new path.

Hence, it’s time to relook at my personal vision. Just because it’s June doesn’t mean I shouldn’t – it’s the right time. The world shifted for me and it’s time.

What About You?

How about you?

Spring Has Sprung

Sheri Here,

Spring has sprung and new life is everywhere.  Ok, so it is still a little cold or wet or snowy but look close and you’ll see new life.  This is the time of renewal and rebirth.

How appropriate for where I am.  It’s perfect since I’m re-defining my future and my present goals.

Reflect & Re-Evaluate

What?! You say?  Yes, I reflect and re-evaluate my goals at least quarterly and just recently did the first quarterly review.

Even though I’m restructuring portions of my life – I made progress on some of my goals.  Others had to change to reflect the re-visioning of my life.  My revised life bucket list!

It’s ok to cross things off your bucket list when they no longer fit your current desires or direction.  Some things are harder to abandon than others because they’ve been a part of you for so long.  But it is ok to feel sadness for saying goodbye to dreams that were long time friends – whether they became reality or not.  Sometimes it happens because we accomplish the dreams and there is still sadness.  Like saying good-by to a longtime friend.

Replenish Your Life

As long as we continue to dream to see the possibility of what life holds, we can still find great value in our life bucket list and our dreams.

It’s when dreams die with no replenishment that our lives feel emptier with little to no possibility.

These are the times that professional help might be of great assistance to get us past the point of emptiness.  If you are struggling with anxiety or depression, get help – don’t wait.

In this Spring time of the year, find the renewal of possibility.  Find something new to pique your curiosity.  I just started coloring and am considering taking up painting.  What about you?  What does this springtime hold for you?  What new things in nature, creativity or spirituality are you going to pursue?  Are you stuck, and need someone to brainstorm with – hit reply or go here and call.

Around town, buds, flowers and new growth are everywhere.  Take time to go on a walk, maybe go visit the wildflowers that are bursting forth everywhere!

‘Til the next time.

Recraft Your Vision

Sheri Here,

What do you do when you’ve changed or achieved a major component in your long term plan? How do you recraft your vision and deal with the disorientation of things shifting?

Sometimes the best action is to first celebrate the accomplishment, spend time growing accustomed to the new change and then recraft your vision.

How do you craft, let alone recraft your vision, you might ask.  I have a blog on the subject that might be helpful – I Can See for Miles – Visioning. There are also other experts who have suggestions for vision setting or vision boarding.

Challenging Your Vision

If you’ve followed me recently, you know that I’ve been spending a good deal of time in meditation, contemplating a change in my long term plan.  If you missed it, my last couple of blogs (here and here) will catch you up!

Writing a bestseller, Everything I Learned About Life I Learned on Vacation, had been on my vision plan for a long time.  I accomplished that last year and now it is time to reinvent myself.

I’ve  begun working on my second book – a workbook to accompany Everything I Learned About Life I Learned on Vacation. It’s still in the early stages, but it is slowly beginning to emerge.

I’m also continuing to step into what a life of ongoing marketing of a book looks like and the impact on my activities and routines.

Implementing The New Vision

As I recently went about envisioning what my revised future looks like, I was pleasantly surprised to see that some of the things that I’m letting go of allow me to create a lighter, more fun lifestyle.

This redo also coincided with my annual status meeting with my financial planner and things are on track in that arena given the changes I’ve made.  That was an additional contributor to the freer life.

Getting to that vision wasn’t easy or without some hard conversations with people I trusted.  There were a few course corrections required but I’m happy today with the prospects.

How about you?  Have you looked at your long term vision lately?  Are you hesitating to do that because you are afraid of the work or because you are concerned about what the future might look like?  You can steer that with a strong plan in place.  If you need help doing that, hit reply, let me know or book a call here and we’ll talk about vision setting!

‘Til the next time.

Now What?

Sheri Here,

Now What?

Here I sit after pausing and thinking for nearly a month.  If you missed my Pausing When Agitated note go here.  Now I’m wondering what’s next.  I feel the shoes have all dropped and now it’s just me.

What happens when we are left with just me, myself and I? Yes, I’ve grown a bit restless.  I’ve spent some time decluttering old pictures, digitizing them so I can do digital memory books, but….now what else?

Looking Within

As I’ve looked at my passions and purpose, I’ve been toying with a few ideas.  How best to move forward.  I can’t stay still forever, I’ll rust out.

What I’ve loved is writing my book Everything I Learned About Life I Learned on Vacation. I loved meeting people through marketing it, so maybe it’s time to get back on the marketing the book horse.  Have some fun and play. I also love traveling.

I found I love writing, so maybe it is time to get back to writing as well.  This newsletter is a start!

One of my favorite chapters in the book is Chapter 31 Re-entry Can Be Brutal.  This includes ideas on how to prolong that sense of being on vacation.

I found I enjoy speaking, so maybe I can combine all of my loves along with my purpose of helping others.

What if I could speak on cruises about some of the things I’m passionate about, including my book, and continue to travel?  What do you think?  I think, it is brilliant, actually. Hit reply and let me know what you think, especially if you know someone who might be able to help me achieve my dream!

Where Are You?

What do you think about where you are in your life? Is it time to switch gears, to take a break, re-energize what you are doing to love your life again?  Leave a comment and let me know.

Are you stuck and want another person to noodle ideas with about the future?  Book a call with me here and let’s chat!  What’s possible for you in this next phase of your life?

‘Til the next time.

Turn Your Daydream into Reality

Turn Your Daydream into Reality!

Sheri here –

This is a great time of year to reflect on your vision for your future – your dream of what you want your life to look like in the year to come. Now is the time to set your intention, make a plan and dream big. 

As we approach the New Year, I like to map out my goals for the next year to create a roadmap to my dreams.

What Happens When Dreams Take a Turn?

But this year we had a lot that upset our apple cart, so our dreams may have gone awry.  

I don’t know about you, but about mid-March this year, my dreams, my goals and my routines all shifted. While I was accustomed to planning activities that involved jumping in my car and going somewhere – hither and yon – braving the LA freeway traffic, that came to an abrupt halt. Since then I think I’ve filled up my gas tank twice and before it was at least twice a month.

In all honesty, what I’ve come to realize is that I used busyness before to procrastinate and not do some of the things I’d wanted to do, needed to do to make my dreams come alive.

Sometimes You Have to Slow Down to Go Fast

The shutdown and stay at home period gave me time to fill differently. Time to try some new things that terrified me. Time to fill with new dreams, bigger dreams. Since COVID-19, I’ve put on webinars, challenges, speeches and reached out to people in ways I’d only imagined before (thank you, Zoom!).

Sure my actions shifted, but my dreams didn’t. I’m closer, farther along the road to my dreams than ever before. I never saw slowing down as a way of going faster and further.  Sometimes you have to slow down to go fast to achieve your wildest dreams. Who knew?

How about you?  Did your actions shift? Did your dreams shift as well? Maybe you don’t have a dream right now. This is the perfect time to revisit your dreams. The end of the year positions you to reflect back on the year, come to closure on the things that need closure, set new goals and hit the ground running toward your dreams come January 1.

Goals Are a Dream, a Vision, with a Plan

If you have found your vision is cloudy, then maybe you could use a boost.  I have a do it yourself vision course bundle to craft or refine your vision and create your goals to move you closer to Your Next Great Chapter – your BIG dream. Join me!! Check it out here.

You deserve to do this for yourself. A little daydreaming never hurt – in fact, we need to dream our dreams before they become reality. Just saying! Give this gift to yourself – just click here now.

As you think about your year and your dreams – consider sharing some of your successes and even some of your misses in the comments below.

May your week be filled with blessings.

Until next time.



P.S Be gentle with yourself as you consider your year and your dreams. This is a time for self-compassion and self-forgiveness. If you need someone to talk to about those things, set up a call with me right here and give yourself a break!  Or, if a do it yourself vision course isn’t your thang, let’s talk here about how you can do it live.

Without Vision

Without Vision, Businesses Perish

Sheri here – 

Where there is no vision, people perish – Proverbs 29:18.

You may ask, why should I care if I have no vision – what difference does that make?

If you look at your life, when you leave your house, you usually have a destination. While you might you use an app to help get you there, you are clear on where you’re going. ⁠ 

A vision certainly helps to get you there, sooner than later.

A Vision Gives Us Direction

Without an idea of where you are going, any road will get you there, you will wander aimlessly and endlessly – wasting a piece of your life.  Does that matter to you?  If it doesn’t, then vision isn’t important.

That vision is what facilitates you fulfilling your life purpose, your destiny. There is so much you have to offer when you follow your life purpose, your why – your vision.

When you are clear on where you are going, you wind up there – sooner or later!⁠  If you are willing, I’d love to hear what your vision looks like.  Swing by the Facebook Group “Money Talks with Sheri” , and leave a note or comment.  If you’d like to share; but prefer to keep it more private, leave a comment below. 

Businesses Need Visions, too!

When you have a vision for your business it does similar things: it gives you your business direction.

That destination could be the size of your profits, the type of products, the people you are working with, the lifestyle you can create, the projects that you can help. 

The list is endless and as individual as you and your business.

Once you have a destination, you can create a plan, a roadmap to get there.  Then it becomes a matter of working the plan.

Periodically after you create your plan, you will want to stop, check your progress and do a course correction, if necessary, to assure that you are on track to get to your destination, to your vision.⁠

Review Your Vision When Circumstances Change

Given the “reset” that we have been given, this is a prime time to stop and assure that you have a clear vision of where you want to go.

Maybe, you already have one and it needs a few tweaks.⁠

Maybe, you need to craft a new vision because circumstances have so changed the environment that your vision is out of date.⁠

Maybe, you don’t have a vision and need to craft one.⁠

No matter the situation, if you need help in understanding the why of revisiting, updating or creating a vision, then reach out.⁠ Ask for help – book a call using this link.

Til the next time, 

Ciao and hugs,
