The role of emotions in cultivating performance and productivity
Cultivating emotional resilience and intelligence is a high impact productivity strategy for everyone and particularly for creatives, HSP (Highly Sensitive People), ADHD, Gifted Adults, and other neurodiverse individuals.

Common metaphors that affect what you perceive is normal, acceptable, or disordered.

I was Interviewed by Akilah Richards for the Excellence in Relationships TeleSummit™ about Agile Life Design and what it takes to design your life and your work to FIT you so that you can have healthier relationships and become more impactfully productive.
QUOTES FROM THE PRESENTATION posted as they were listening…
When you trust that you will make the best of things even when they don’t turn as you hoped or expected, you actually can’t fail — there is no longer any such thing as “waste” — EVERY experience then becomes an “investment” in your becoming ready for success. This is the deepest level of self-confidence and inner security.
“When you really get that there is no such thing as wasting time, that is the most profound state of faith, freedom and motivated action you can experience.”
“You cannot be ready for success until you are ready for failure.”
”I don’t say yes to something unless I’m willing to fail at it.”
“Instead of bossing yourself around, think of yourself as a client and partner with yourself!”
There is more than one way to look at reliability….
“I can count on myself to recover, more than I can count on myself NOT to mess up. I am going to mess up.”
“It’s not about “fixing” your life, it’s about noticing what’s needed.”
Thank you all for posting the quotes – It’s so great to know what really resonated for you!
Here are some of the quotes that people posted on Facebook after the program…
Thank You Ariane! I realized that there are a lot of ideas that I have not acted on because of the fear of failure. However, when I look back on my journey I’m really good at putting the pieces back together. Failure is not so bad after all – Jen Rogers
I learned so much from that call, and I feel a renewed sense of trust in my journey. – A. Richards
This is a list of over 70 + classes I’ve given over the last 10 years.
Below I’ve posted excerpts, video clips, and sometimes free access to the complete classes. Some are downloadable recordings, and some are posted on You Tube. You might notice I never teach the same class twice – even if the titles are similar. I’m always learning and my work evolves with me.
Being part of my virtual community is an adventure. Hope you’ll join me!

“I listen to a lot of webinars and I have never seen anyone given so much of themselves, be so authentic, and offer so much truly valuable information. Thanks again for sharing, you are a blessing!”
“I decided to try your ADEPT Design Process and create my version of a flow chart for incoming mail. It did help me “see” the problem visually…. You are teaching me how to look at my behavior more compassionately and design new ways for me to support my own nature instead of trying to conform to someone else’s system. Thanks for helping me trust myself more.”
“Thanks so much for your insights into how relationships and abuse are intertwined in how we design our homes. I was especially moved by your explanation of what can be considered abuse, it was a real eye opener. Your ideas on creating a home based on how it functions to fill needs rather than how others think it should be really resonated with me. I really am worth it! Great work, Ariane!”
“I’m thrilled to have found a coach/expert … addressing neurodiversity and the challenges of living in our culture! I am a sociologist by training … and feel your Agile Life Design framework would be so valuable in that arena.”
“Following your program these last weeks has been exciting, a light of hope. I truly believe you have compiled a deep and thorough approach to help people in many ways. I look forward to applying what I’ve learned to working with my future husband to co-design our new life together!
Thank you Ariane.”
“Thank you SO much for all that you have given us in this program. I want to be sure you know that you’ve made a huge difference in my life, and the way I approach life’s challenges and triumphs.”
