Stop Just Venting, Add Perspective

Nothing wrong with a good vent, right? What harm could it do. It’s bad to keep it bottled up. Let it out we have been told. 

I have been spinning the inequities and inefficiencies of the U.S. vaccine distribution. I am an Enneagram 3 - I can’t help myself as I am dialed toward positive action with efficiency and effectiveness. 

But these last few weeks, I have found I didn’t feel any better to vent on the doses being thrown out because they couldn’t find people in time in the approved government categories or how people are putting themselves into categories 1A and 1B tangentially and getting vaccinated or how my husband is exposed as an essential member of the justice system and our Governor hasn’t replied to my emails asking for equity for criminal defense attorneys - only prosecutors have access.

3 Steps to Clarity and Action in 2021

Do you know what you want for 2021?

Let’s say goodbye to the big vague statements (“my best year yet”) and harness the energy of fresh starts with specific and actionable micro goals. What’s a micro goal?

2. Now, prioritize the download in #1. List your top 5 priorities. See if you find a commonality or string that pulls through. Spend 10 minutes on this step. 

3. Lastly, break the priorities in #2 into tiny steps. Big change is made through everyday small actions. We want to set you up for success. Think tiny or micro changes that you build on everyday. Spend...

The Enneagram System

coaching enneagram tips May 11, 2020


Sailor’s Sweet Life (SSL) leverages the Enneagram System as a tool in coaching and workshops. A fun, engaging and highly practical motivational tool, the Enneagram facilitates improved self-awareness and interpersonal relationships across family, social and professional spheres.

Unlike other personality tools, which can inadvertently typecast individuals and actually create more conflict (“I’m this style, and we’re not the same”), the Enneagram is rooted in practicality and harmony. It motivates users to explore not only their unique type, but also the types of others to improve communication in the relationships that matter most (“I’m this type and you’re that type, so this is how we can interact more efficiently and peacefully”).
