The new year is almost upon us, and are you as pumped as I am?! New Year's celebrations are my absolute favorite holiday, and you can hear why in this week's episode of The MOJO Show. And our #FreeVideoFriday feature this week is yet another new year ritual that makes this time of year so special: it's my Tips for Your 108 Sun Salutations!
Time sure does fly when you’re having boat loads of fun, doesn’t it? Well, another year is coming to an end, and what have you done with your time?
I’m guessing the answer to that question is: a lot! That's why it's time to take stock of all this year's wins and losses and prepare ourselves to level-up in the new year to come. To help you honor this special occasion that only comes once a year, I've created for you not one but 2 free gifts! But before you jump into those, take a deeper dive on both of your free goal setting and planning resources with Scott and me in a new episode of The MOJO Show.
We're late. We're late. We're late for an important date! What date is that? Why, our 3rd quarter goals review, that's what! Now, I must say that we here at MOJO HQ have very good reason to be tardy on our official goals review with you, but we can't tell you why just yet. Believe us, you'll love it, and it has everything to do with our own goal setting practices. So be sure to stay tuned for some exciting new happenings coming very, very soon. Until then, though, mum's got to be the word. So, please enjoy this rebroadcast of last year's Sprint to the Finish, including a fresh Goals Review Template for you to download and utilize absolutely free! You can thank me by kicking some ass in your own goals for the home stretch of this year...and beyond. :)
Spring has sprung and plenty of mojo is in the air. I’m betting that you, like me, have plenty of spring cleaning projects on your mind. And, like it or not, the coming of spring also means that the first quarter of the year is pretty much in the books, calling on us to pause and reflect for a moment. After all, just as you might do that big spring (or other seasonal) cleaning, go to the doctor for a periodic check-up, or even take your car in for a tune-up, it’s ever so wise to do a lifestyle design and goals check-in on the regular. And that’s just what I’m going to help you do this week!
This week, MOJO Mob, we need your help. You see, we always want to hear from you, and love it when we do. But this week in particular, we really want to hear your thoughts to help us better serve you through MOJO in the future. So, pretty please, take a few moments to let us know what’s on your mind. It’ll really help us out. Thanks a million!
This is such an appropriate topic for all of us as we enter the second month of a new year: precisely the time when it gets really tough to stick with our goals that we set in January. Keeping the gunas in mind when it comes to our goals can help us stick with it for the long haul and make tremendous progress.
At the start of a new year our thoughts often turn to the things to which we feel true devotion: our loved ones, our health, our happiness, and our dreams. We have so many things we’d like to accomplish, experience, and bring to fruition in this one life! And thoughts like these are why such a phenomenon as “new year’s resolutions” even exists. Yet, we all know the dismal success rate of those strobe light intentions, as I’m going to start calling them. You know, they’re mostly momentary flashes of brilliance surrounded by oceans of darkness. So, if our “resolutions” are sparked by the things to which we feel deep devotion and for which we have long desired, why do we often so utterly fail at keeping up with them?
As the calendar year 2015 comes to close, we pause to reflect…on how the hell this year went by so fast! Well, at least that’s what I’m thinking. While each year seems to fly by faster than the next, we can feel like we’re struggling just to keep pace and accomplish something, anything that we set out to do in a reasonable space of time. That’s one of the biggest reasons why we started the practicing lifestyle design in our own lives: so we could take some conscious control over the shape of our lives, and start living the lifestyle of our dreams rather than muddling through life as it’s handed to us
Well, MOJO Mob, believe it or not, we’ve rounded the corner in our 2015 Year by Design race: it’s time to turn on the afterburners and make the sprint to the finish. In other words, it’s time to check in with our goals progress thus far and redouble our efforts for the rest of the year. So crack your knuckles and sharpen your pencils, folks. It’s about to get real around here.
That's right, folks, we're venturing into the podcast world with this our inaugural episode of The MOJO Show. Now, you can get your weekly dose of MOJO wisdom all up in your ears while you get ready to leave the house, drive or commute to work, or heck, while you work! The MOJO Show is unlike anything we've done to date: co-founder Scott Johnson will be joining me, Jean Marie, each week to get candid and real about the topics we cover in the blog. And knowing how much Scott talks, we'll probably cover much more that I can't even imagine at the moment. This is the realization of a huge, longstanding goal of ours. We really hope you have as much fun tuning in to the episodes as we do making them.
Balance. You hear me talk about it all the time. It’s at the heart of everything we learn, or at least seek to learn, in our practice of yoga. And it’s probably one of the hardest things to understand, obtain, and most importantly, maintain.
Think about it in your physical practice. Think about what gets stirred up inside you when you’re trying to hold your most challenging balance posture...
Well, folks, here we are almost at the end of January. It's time to do our first check in with our Year by Design goals and actions. If you've not started your tracking yet, you can get the worksheets for free here and start anytime. What's that saying? The best time to plant a tree...

Well, here we are at the end of another calendar year. If the adage holds that time goes faster as we get older, I must be something like 108 years old because this year flew!
I was chatting with a friend about the coming change of annum, and mentioned that my household does a yearly review and sets goals for the new year. She surprised me by saying that she and her family don’t give a flip about the new year or reviewing the old one, that they just “float along” through the years. Wha-wha-what???
