Last week, I was delighted to present CRAVE Your Goals! to more than 200 women, four men and two giant dinosaurs. (I'm the one on stage, in between one of the dinosaur's arms.) You see, I was speaking at the Network of Executive Women's Atlanta Spring Learning Event at Fernbank Museum. 

I began by sharing how dinosaurs became extinct. Some scientists believe a giant meteorite crashed to earth 65 million years ago. The dust and debris blocked out the sun. Without the sun, the plants died. Without the plants, the plant-eating dinosaurs died. And without the plant-eating dinosaurs, the meat-eating dinosaurs died.

Without the proper attention and intention, your goals can suffer the same fate. You can let distractions, fears and limiting beliefs get in the way, or you can rely on the illuminating five CRAVE steps to keep your goals and dreams alive.

While physical and technical clutter can get in the way of our goals, it's sometimes the emotional clutter that blocks us from moving forward. That includes regrets, resentments, toxic people, unfinished business and unnecessary obligations. Here's a strategy I shared at that event to help you reduce those obligations.
  1. Make a list of all your daily, weekly, monthly and yearly obligations.
  2. Check off the ones that are essential to your professional and personal responsibilities.
  3. Rate the others on a scale of one to ten.
  4. Drop anything under a seven.
By doing this exercise, you'll identify that long-term friendship you've both outgrown or a committee you've served on for too long and have begun to resent. When you let go of these unnecessary obligations, you create room for what matters most or perhaps a little much-needed breathing space. After all, moments of "nothing to do" can be a very good thing!

Share your insights from this exercise on my Facebook Page or reply back to me. I love hearing from you!

LinkedIn Wisdom
Molloy Communications  
Way before I was a professional speaker, I was a marketing consultant. In fact, I started Molloy Communications when I was just a child back in 1988. 

While I focus mostly on speaking these days, there is one area of marketing I continue to do because it's so rewarding for me and in demand by professionals who want to get noticed. I audit LinkedIn profiles. That means I recommend ways to make your profile more effective and write compelling copy and client testimonials to set you apart.

Since you're probably on LinkedIn, I share a strategy each week to help ensure your profile is the best reflection of you.

Have You Heard What They're Saying?
"Simple but brilliant! That's Tricia Molloy's 'Work-Life Balance Wisdom' program. 


"Tricia spoke to more than 600 AT&T employees at our headquarters in Dallas and via webcast to AT&T offices throughout the country. She got us to think about our lives in a different way. Her empowering message struck a chord with so many of us, regardless of our level or lifestyle. We followed up the event with a book giveaway to encourage participants to improve their balance by making conscious choices-like cleaning out technical clutter and using positive affirmations. 


"Even a respected senior executive who is known for her commitment to balance said she learned some new strategies that she'll apply right away."
Tiffany Jenkins, Director of Audit Services
