Hey Reader!

Thank you for understanding the unexpected hiatus from this weekly newsletter.

I'm back in your inbox to share 3 bits of news.

1. UPDATE: The Ultimate Guide to Purposeful Self-Growth in a BASB Structure

We apologize for the delay if you expected The Ultimate Guide to Purposeful Self-Growth in a BASB Structure last month.

The first draft is complete, but I've asked Felipe Fraga to add his perspective on how your Second Brain and self-reflection connect to your life's operating system.

By working together, Felipe and I will bring you an even better version of the guide, so please bear with us a little longer.

Beginning with the April 5 newsletter, I'll share excerpts from Purposeful Self-Growth.

Sign up here to receive The Ultimate Guide as soon as Felipe and I hit the publish button.

Meantime, hit reply if you'd like to see the current draft. I'll send you a file.

2. Mental Health Break: ADD in Women 50+

I've recently been re-diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) -- explaining a series of disconcerting mental lapses recently.

Time off from writing here and on Twitter gives me the mental and emotional bandwidth to focus (terrible pun) on getting better.

I have been learning a lot about how attention deficits affect women over 50. Too many women my age believe their cognitive struggles are age-related.

3. We're back with a new edition next week

How does your Today Self compare against the Future Self you imagined 90 days ago?

Next week, let's work through five questions to help assess your progress and adjust your objectives and expectations for the next 90 days.

  1. You're probably closer to that Future Self than you give yourself credit for.
  2. Beating yourself up will slow you down for your next 90-day Future Self Sprint.

Your setback probably says less about your character than you think it does.

I'm finding this to be true for me.

Let's Talk

If you or someone you know may be struggling with forgetfulness, constant overwhelm, or impulse control -- especially if you are women over 50 -- I'd love to talk with you.

Ask me anything.

Just hit reply.

I'll respond.

Thank you for being part of my community and supporting me on this journey.
