Mark Bittman”s 4 principles of kitchen confidence

I thought I would re-post this article from a few years ago because it spoke to me then and I hope it will speak to you now.  Cooking isn’t as difficult as so many people think.  The main ingredient when cooking at home is the planning part.  When, not if, you’re willing to set aside a few minutes each week to plan out your meals, you will begin to reproduce those menu plans in the future.  So instead of making a few choice meals over an over again, and becoming...

Gratitude – Is Your Cup Half Empty or Half Full?

What a huge difference Cathy made in my office at work!  She helped me organize the mountains of paperwork and chaos and now it looks great!  I have a system that I know will work for me because she made sure that things were organized by how I use them…everything in its place!  I value Cathy’s creativity, integrity, originality and helpfulness in all the organizing/time management projects she does.  Next I plan to take her Time Strategies program so I can get my business calendar, appointments and desk organized.  Can’t wait!!

I hired Cathy to redesign my office space to enhance the functionality and create a space that I want to work in. Change in any form is never easy, but Cathy listens to your needs and makes recommendations in a gentle and supportive manner. Her focus is to understand how you need your space to function, so that the outcome is both aesthetically pleasing and feels natural based on how you personally process information. Thank you Cathy!

Mostly I’m thankful to Cathy Dick, for helping me a lot with previous decision making and daily planning. She has helped me put into practice a mind-set to be something that I wish to accomplish by the end of each day to the end of the year– focus on that, and make sure I do things in terms of preparing myself mentally and physically before I start.  She has a lot of great resources that she shares freely too.  You can trust her to do what she says she’ll do.
