What is a Focusologist?
My world unexpectedly turned upside down when I was 19, my dad died in an accident on vacation. During those trying times, I stumbled upon a simple, yet profound strategy...
What began as a coping mechanism—a way to find brief solace in the storm—evolved into my guiding compass. I started to find reset moments in all areas of my life. These leadership skills became my superpower.
Reset Moments were pauses, reflections, deep breaths, and questions to help me find clarity, and refocus on what matters most. These moments realigned me with my goals, values and intentions.
From personal challenges to professional hurdles, Reset Moments allowed me to cut through the noise, to simplify the complex, and to find windows of opportunities in the most unexpected places. And YOU CAN TOO!!
It comes down to this...
Make More Reset Moments!
People tell me after events that they are recognizing more Reset Moments
every day and it is making a HUGE difference in their lives.
Reset Moments are not just the big moments like the death of my father, a health scare, or a new job. What I found was these Reset Moments are present every day, if we slow down and pay attention. They are early warning signals or opportunity knocking.
In today’s hustle culture, we have to listen for the signals of disconnection, distraction, and dissatisfaction but also celebration, gratitude, and opportunity. Making more Reset Moments is what it means to be a Focusologist.
I may have discovered this a long time ago, but I have to stay present to the Reset Moments every day. We get distracted, we lose connection to people and the big picture, and sometimes we get lost in the details and self-doubt so we have a proven framework to Reset; rethink, reconnect, and reprioritize.
I am excited to share my simple system to you Make More Reset Moments and improve your impact as a leader, support your personal development, and build greater adaptability and resilience.

Change is constant
The one thing we can guarantee is that things will change. We spend too much time resisting our reality, trying to get back to the way things were, or in fear of what might happen. Don’t fight change, dance with it.
There is no failure only feedback
See mistakes and missteps as lessons, learn, and apply them going forward to learn and grow. Mistakes are part of life and often we learn more from mistakes than we do from our successes.
Progress is perfection
Recognize and measure progress that will help you reach your goals faster. Recognizing the progress will create momentum. It isn’t about being perfect but making progress.
Assume positive intent
Don’t blame, criticize, or complain- everyone is working towards the same goals. Support each other, and give each other the benefit of the doubt to create a safe, collaborative, and productive environment.
Permission to let go
The key to resilience is to let go and free yourself of unnecessary emotional baggage. Let go of lesser important items. Let go of things you cannot control. Letting go is at the core of a Rest Mindset allowing you to see things with fresh eyes.
