Who Do You Think You Are?

Have you ever heard the expression 'whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right'? When I first started hearing people say it, I thought it was some kind of a trick saying, meant to confuse people and make them look foolish, so I didn't even try to figure it out. After a while, I guess I had heard it so many times that I got curious, and whenever I'm curious about something, I can usually figure it out. Well, it turned out to be a pretty useful expression, after all. The...

More Than One Way to Be Queen

Season 8 of the hit show Game of Thrones has come and gone and my Sunday nights will never be the same. No longer will I be keeping company with dwarves and dragons, incest and beheadings. I must admit I went through the five stages of grief and loss, even though no one has died. Well, actually lots of people have died on this show, including the deaths of some of my favorite characters. The end of the series was also the end of the lives of some of the most vivid characters. These deaths and...

So, you love being a driven woman, most of the time.  Hell, let's be honest here, nearly all the time. Except when your driven nature gets you into trouble; with your health, your career, or with other people. Hey, it happens. When you have all this awesomeness, sometimes, it's just too much for the situation. And let's face it, we aren't always the best at downshifting when we need to. Sometimes, the need for speed just gets the better of us and the next thing we know, we are in a ditch...

Put Your Mind To It

blog the driven woman Jun 05, 2020

I'm sure you've heard the expression "I can do anything, once I've put my mind to it" or "She's a real go-getter, once she puts her mind to something." Your parents and teachers probably said it about you when you were a kid; and your friends, partners, and co-workers have been saying it ever since. Maybe you've said it about yourself too. I know I have. All my life, once I put my mind to something, it was as good as done. I had the drive, the determination, the persistence and the desire to...
