How is the final pre-holiday sprint treating you?! I just wrapped up five weeks of back-to-back travel for speaking engagements in New York, Austin, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago and San Francisco . . . and am now enjoying a much-needed, delightfully snowy date weekend with the Furry Rest Monster! Big warm welcome to all the new readers and friends who have joined this weekly(ish) #PIVOTList round-up while I was on the road :)
This photo is with one of MY biggest author heroes who I was fortunate to meet at the Massachusetts Conference for Women, Glennon Doyle Melton, author of Love Warrior, one of the best books I read in 2016.
Exciting Pivot Serendipity Popcorn this week: it knocked my socks off that Seth Godin mentioned PIVOT in his list of recent reads and I'm honored to be on Refinery29's list of Best Books of 2016.
On that note, PIVOT makes a great holiday gift! The book's guidance isn't limited to major career moves; rather, it's a method for mapping what's next even within your current role or business.
If you're interested in running a Pivot workshop within your organization in the new year, click here to learn more, and if you're looking for private coaching to start 2017 off with a bang, check out the two-session Jumpstart packages here.

RECENT PIVOT PODCASTS
- Jonathan Fields: The 5 Saboteurs of an Entrepreneur
- Wired: The Subtle Ways Your Digital Assistant May Manipulate You
"As we welcome the digital assistants into our homes, we may appreciate the free service. But we won’t know the exact cost. As the digital butler expands its role in our daily lives, it can alter our worldview. By crafting notes for us, and suggesting “likes” for other posts it wrote for other people, our personal assistant can effectively manipulate us through this stimulation.
As our digital butler increasingly controls our mundane tasks, it will be harder to turn off. It will be tempting to increasingly rely on the butler for the news we receive, the shows we watch, and the things we buy and even say. We may feel that we roam the fields of free ideas. And yet, we are increasingly ushered by the super-platform’s digitalized hand, not recognizing its toll on our well-being."
