We’re in the Wall Street Journal and Holiday Journaling!

Happy Holiday Season!  It is certainly starting off to be a wonderful one for us.  Rita had her photo show in NYC last weekend.  This hobby – now passion – came out of her practicing that which we espouse in our books: take little risks, journal about your dreams, and set priorities via the Goals Circle exercise.  It was a very joyous occasion!

On-line and in print
in the Dec 9th issue!

Then, this week, our work was acknowledged and quoted in The Wall Street Journal!  Check out the full article about the increasing numbers of baby boomers taking career breaks where you can read Reboot Partners’ specially featured expert tips!  We are proud and thrilled to share our work in this respected publication.
It is also a joyous time for us because we were able to publish our new Journal for Inspiration in time to share it with you for the holidays. This month will be over before you blink.  ‘Tis a time of joy, of gift exchange, of loved ones coming together… or it is one of stress when gift-buying becomes just too overwhelming and you have 20 people coming over for a holiday meal?  If festivities start to turn to drudge – or if not, before they do – please remember to take time out for yourself.  Journaling is a great way to capture the joys of the holidays and to develop strategies for handling the more hectic side.

We find that journaling every day grounds us.  It allows us to reflect upon our actions and interactions from the day before. Did they go well, is there something we would change? Journaling enables us to write our joys and frustrations, and then to share our hopes and intentions for the day that is about to unfold.  We especially like to write in a journal that inspires us.
With that in mind, we created A Journal for Inspiration.  It contains quotes from famous men and women around the world, quotes that we have gathered over the past 6 years of working together, quotes that we believe you will enjoy reading each day, as you fill the journal with your own words and thoughts.
For those of you who are racking your brains for holiday gift ideas or stocking stuffers, consider giving the gift of a journal.  A Journal for Inspiration can be purchased on for $8.98.  Whether the new owner already journals or not, the daily quote will be a moment of delight and discovery.  We are also busy this month preparing our new January retreat in Santa Fe – with a focus on our new research on reinventing retirement. For many of you, this might be the perfect gift to give yourself after the holidays – and such a great way to start your new year.
May you be surrounded with joy and warmth this December.  We wish you and your loved ones a special holiday season and a very Happy New Year.

Lessons in Permission: Reboot Your Life Berkshires Retreat 2012


“Reboot Partners have developed a user-friendly methodology to help others refocus their lives and careers so that they can learn to live their lives with passion, intent, productivity and joy.”

~ Berkshires November 2012 Retreat Attendee


Despite challenges from Hurricane Sandy, we were able to hold our November retreat in the Berkshires. A few people had to postpone due to travel difficulties but we did have one participant fly all the way in from Columbia to join us. The skies were blue and the air a bit crisp. Leaves were changing outside as lives were changing inside.

When one person introduced herself as a “Type A” everyone else chimed in “me too.” Why is it that so many of us feel the need to prove ourselves over and over and over again? We returned to that question frequently throughout our weekend together. The response, we all agreed, lies in the ability to give oneself permission – permission to think about you, your needs, and to enjoy opportunities now and ahead. After two and a half short but intense days, retreat attendees all left reinvigorated and committed to finding passion and balance in their lives. Each left with a specific plan, but common themes included not having to be a “Type A,” being able to give oneself permission to follow dreams and how to say no to naysayers or time robbers.

As we turn to the upcoming holidays, are you one of those type A’s who is going to try to cook the biggest and best meal ever for all of your relatives? In this time of becoming absorbed with holiday decorating, cooking, buying and doing things for others, give yourself permission to think of yourself and think of a few fun things that you would enjoy. Tiny opportunities for renewal benefit everyone.

Wishing you and your family a very happy holiday season. We invite you to view some of the recipes from our Berkshires weekend by clicking here.
