REACH YOUR GOALS FASTER

Posted By Administration, Thursday, June 15, 2017

In my coaching practice, clients often ask how do I reach my goal faster?

My answer? Momentum.

Momentum is the energy that carries any thought or idea through to fruition. It’s the engine in your car of life.

It is a crucial point in determining if there will be success or failure when you receive an idea.

If it is directed deliberately, momentum will build energy bridging the gap from having the idea to bringing it to fruition.

When you doubt, or don’t trust your ideas, it puts a kink in the flow, slowing down the accomplishment of your goal. This is much like folding a water hose and slowing the flow of water.

Utilizing momentum, you choose the speed limits of your life. You decide how fast you want to take the curves and switchbacks.

Here’s how it works:

Generalizing – Slow it down

To slow your momentum, imagine rough, mountain roads with switchbacks around every turn, twists and turns, you probably wouldn’t feel safe driving100 mph across that treacherous terrain.

Same goes when you start to feel a wobble, or you hear the voice of your evil twin (admit it we all have one – it’s why we’re superheroes – we use our power for good not evil) taunting you, this is when you want to direct your momentum the way you would drive on that precarious mountain road. You want to slow your roll, make sure you have an aerial view, keeping the big picture (ie: your safe arrival) in the forefront of your mind, moment to moment.

Detailing – Speed it up

To speed up momentum towards a goal consider the autobahn in Europe. The road is mapped out ahead of you and smooth pavements. You feel great driving your master crafted vehicle at higher speeds, you know the destination, and now you are ensconced in the experience of feeling the road, paying attention to every little detail, other drivers, the lines, the curves, the shoulder, aware and ready to adjust your trajectory in a heartbeat.

On days when you feel things are going your way – that shows your alignment is directed towards your goals, the more you focus on every detail of what is going great about your day, the faster your momentum increases (just like the autobahn) and the better you will feel. This is when the opportunity comes a’nockin’.

When you first start working deliberately with your momentum you may find the road is a bit bumpy getting started, but just like riding a bike once you start pedaling it’s easier to steer. So, while you may wobble from side to side, just keep pedaling, it will soon straighten out!

And yes, there were times I didn’t realize my focus needed readjusting until I was already in the “weeds” lost, frustrated with no map. Trust me, getting out of those dead ends took time, energy and support from my community.

Most people believe momentum is built through force – pushing something away, dragging it towards you, making it happen, exerting energy. Truth is momentum can be your friend and a great tool if you know how to use it. If you direct your momentum (by directing your thought) towards your goals, your dreams, your desires you will HAVE success.

When you hit roadblocks, an irritable partner, a prickly boss or a mistake in your perfect presentation; that’s the time to practice working with your momentum. This is where the magic happens! You choose whether to speed it up – making everything bigger or slow it down so you can redirect the course.

OR an alternate route:

When that irritable partner shows up, you can navigate your momentum like that back-mountain road, taking a general and higher perspective, like the eagle soaring above. So instead of jumping into their momentum by getting agitated, trying to make them feel better or my personal favorite – trying to fix it, you focus on the situation from a higher perspective, instead of agreeing with what is making them angry, you see them as something other than what they are exhibiting in that moment.  You’ll see that momentum rules!

SOMEDAY IS TODAY

Posted By Administration, Thursday, May 25, 2017

A wise man named Rudolfo Costa once said “Erase from your vocabulary the word ‘someday.’  Do not save things for ‘special occasions.’  Take into account the fact that every day is special.  Every day is a gift that we must appreciate and be thankful for”... Live every day to the fullest and savor every minute of it.”

He offered these illustrations of his point:  “Wear your attractive clothes, wear your nice perfume, use your fine silverware and dishes, and drink from your expensive crystal glasses...”  


The key idea here is to make use of the good things in your life.  I’m sure there are plenty of us who find ourselves a little short of expensive crystal or fine silverware.  But we probably all have possessions that we treat as too nice or too special to use right now. The late humorist, Erma Bombeck, wrote about a woman who was given the gift of a gorgeous, wildly expensive lace slip.  She put off wearing it because there was never an occasion special enough.  She eventually wore it – in her coffin.  I know, that’s a jarring example, but it certainly makes the point.  The poor woman should have enjoyed this gift by using it.  It did no one (especially her) any good wrapped in tissue paper in a nice box – in a drawer.

It’s not about “stuff” itself; it’s about making use of what you have while you can.  What about our gifts and talents?  You can have all the potential in the world but it will come to nothing if you never unleash those latent talents and use them!  If you do happen to have fine crystal and dishes, have people to dinner.  If you have a talent, like quilt-making, make quilts as love gifts.  As an artist I can say that the art pieces that have made me the happiest were those made as gifts for people I love.  All of this circles back to this:  saving anything for “someday” is almost certainly preventing someone’s enjoyment.  If it involves using a talent or a possession to bless other people it will result in warm feelings all around.  And that kind of warm feeling is called “fulfillment.”  

In Friendship,

EQM Sue Ellen Cooper

7 TIPS TO MAKE YOUR MORNING ROUTINE SUPER PRODUCTIVE

Posted By Administration, Thursday, May 18, 2017
Updated: Wednesday, May 17, 2017

1. Stay off social media. If you want to be super productive in your morning routine, the key is to stay off of social media. Once you log in, it’s so hard to log off. Unless social media is part of your job, avoid logging in at any cost in the morning.

2. Make a list for yourself. Sometimes you’re not super productive because you don’t know what you should be doing. Instead of wondering what’s next, make yourself a list. Crossing something off of your list always feels good, doesn’t it?  

3. Eat a good breakfast. Another way to be super productive in the morning is to actually eat breakfast. Don’t skip out on fueling your body what it needs to survive.  

4. Stay off your phone. Unless you need to be on your phone for business purposes, try to avoid it in the morning. Just like social media, phones can also suck your time away.

5. Prep the night before. Sometimes a little prep the night before can help make your morning routine run more smoothly. For example, you can lay out your clothing for the next day. Thinking ahead is always a time saver and can motivate you to be more productive.  

6. Try to be positive. Keep in mind that you’re human, so things are bound to go wrong. You can’t get upset when things go wrong, instead, you need to have a good attitude about it all. You can have a good attitude by trying to let things go that aren’t going your way. Positivity always gets you further.

7. Jump right in. Some people waste time in the morning because they cannot decide what they need to do first. In order to be super productive in the morning, jump right in. Sometimes you just need to get started in order to start rolling.

Being super productive in your morning routine comes down from to not getting distracted, taking care of yourself, and not fiddling around.

Seeing the Red Hat Society

Posted By Administration, Thursday, May 11, 2017
Updated: Wednesday, May 10, 2017

I was out to dinner with my dad and stepmom one Friday night during April when I noticed a bunch of older women walking in with these really huge, detailed red hats. The diner staff was directing them all to the same room, but I didn’t think much of it. As I was eating my Reuben, Dad had made a comment about all of these women with these red hats, and how it couldn’t just be a coincidence. My stepmom looked at him and said, as passively as if she was talking about fruit sales: “Oh, that’s just the Red Hat Society.”

I kind of laughed a bit and put down a french fry. “The what,” I asked her. I wanted to make sure I heard her correctly.

“The Red Hat Society,” she said. “It’s a group of women who meet with red hats.”

I was smiling by this point. No way is this true, I was thinking to myself. By this time, there were about 15 women in this back room wearing red hats and purple dresses. I knew she wasn’t lying, but at the same time, this seemed kind of fake.

“It’s not fake,” she said to me. “These women meet and talk about things. It’s a giant social thing.”

These women were coming in with some of the biggest red hats I had ever seen. The hats reminded me of something you would see on the women in England: extravagant, bold, expensive looking. Every time another woman came in, I was totally amazed by the hats.

We finished our food and I ran out to the car as fast as I could. I wanted to Google the Red Hat Society, but I needed my car charger. My stepmom thought my curiosity was hilarious. I was amazed at how intrigued I was at this mystery club with colorful clothing.

Google brought me right to their website. With some digging, this is what I found. This information is copy and pasted directly from the website, as not to leave out anything important. All rights belong to the Red Hat Society:

Most women give their all to family, career, and community. And they enjoy it. But, along the way, sometimes our existing bonds of friendship gradually diminish. Membership in the Red Hat Society is a rewarding vehicle for reconnecting old friends, making new friends and rediscovering the joy of getting together with other women for the express purpose of… having FUN! We wholeheartedly promote periods of “recess” from the cares and duties of everyday life in which Hatters gather for no other purpose than to play.

I also found out that this club considered itself a “play group for women” and divides its members into two groups; queens and members. Women over 50-years-old wear red hats and purple clothing, where women under 50-years-old wear pink hats and lavender clothing. Everyone I saw was wearing red and purple. I didn’t even realize there were younger members until I did some research.

The description of the rankings (all rights belong to the Red Hat Society, description copy and pasted for accuracy):

Queen of a Chapter

·    You deserve the title! You’ve always felt you were Queen material.

·    You are ready for the attention that comes along with being THE QUEEN!

·    You want to lead a Chapter that shares the power of fun and friendship.

·    You are new to the area, in a new life stage or ready for new friendships.

·    You have a specific interest or talent and want to attract others who enjoy your idea of fun.

Supporting Member

·    You are ready to bring fun and friendship into your life.

·    You are new to the idea of “play” in your life and want to test the waters before diving in.

·    You are new to the area or in a new life stage.

·    You’ve already met a local Chapter you want to play with and will be aligning with that Chapter.

 

RHS prides themselves in being able to help women “shed stereotypes” and “form bonds” with other women who have like minds and similar interests.

To see this with my own eyes was pretty cool. I didn’t know the Red Hat Society existed, but I was so interested in what this club was all about that I just had to share this experience, and the research that I found, with you all. You never know what you’ll learn about when you go out to dinner with your parents.

Updated: Monday, January 23, 2017

I recently had the privilege of hosting an international hat making competition on my website - www.hatalk.com. The theme was 'Connections' and it was really inspirational to see all of the creative ways that hat makers around the world interpreted this concept. I wanted to share a photo of the winning hat with you because it reminded me of the women of the Red Hat Society. 

 

 

This hat is called 'Marry-Anne' and it was made by Australian milliner Anne Belyaeva. The red 'button' base of the hat is made from red leather, which was created in the traditional way of being blocked, or stretched, over a wooden form. The black geometric design is made of Perspex, a material that is quite new to the hat making world and is quickly becoming very popular. Anne planned out the design on a computer and then laser cut the Perspex into the shape she wanted. 

 

I think you'll agree that it's a stunning and unusual hat and a worthy competition winner. It's cutting edge but also traditional. It's classic but also very modern. It's a serious fashion item but also lots of fun. And that's why it reminded me of you. The women of the Red Hat Society embody these qualities, too. You are intelligent, classy and full of neat traditions - but you're also fun, modern, forward-thinking and enjoy using the latest technology to connect with your fellow RHS Sisters. You ladies are an inspiration!

 

You can find out more about how Anne made her winning hat and see the other winning headpieces here

Time To Get Packing For New York!

Posted By Admimistrator, Tuesday, January 31, 2017
Updated: Tuesday, January 31, 2017

Time to get packing for New York, all you convention-goers! Yes, I will admit that a gathering in the middle of New York City (ON Times Square, no less) requires a little more effort in the wardrobe preparation department than most conventions. But nobody is expected to break the bank by purchasing purple and red everything (certainly not in the boots and coat category). But, then again, if you already have it, can find it at a thrift store or borrow it......

Now for a major digression... 

Membership in the Red Hat Society changes just about every woman’s life for the better, but certain women have seized on our mission statement and incorporated it into their personal lives more than others. One of these is my old high school friend, now known in RHS circles as “The Lady Patricia.” Pat was always a sparkplug in high school, once organizing a group of us to humiliate ourselves royally by prancing in a cakewalk dance number in a “talent” show. But after graduation, marrying and having a daughter, she went into a profession that required her to fade into the background, to be – shall we say – circumspect and low-key (at least during work hours). She became a court reporter, eventually opening her own court reporting school. And she dressed the part. Whether she was typing silently in court or recording private depositions she wore navy, black or beige suits, “sensible” heels and discreet pearl studs in her ears – and totally avoided calling any attention to herself. For years and years, she was all business....

Until Pat joined the Dazzling Divas and embraced a persona much more in keeping with her true self. Quickly dubbing herself “The Lady Patricia,” she created a glamorous purple wardrobe, by sewing most of it herself. She set about assembling a collection of bling that undoubtedly rivals that of Queen Elizabeth herself. (OK, The Lady Patricia’s bling is not “real”). She found purple foxtails online, a purple lace parasol, and all sorts of other fabulous accessories.

Pat had always sewed a bit when she was younger, but when she became Lady Patricia she suddenly stepped it up in a big way. She claims that the RHS tenet advising us to find fulfillment by following old dreams encouraged her to return to sewing with a gusto - and nobody does gusto like Pat! She ordered buckram and a milliner’s hat form and figured out how to make hats for herself. She bought advanced sewing and embroidery machines and took classes in heirloom sewing. One of her early ventures into this highly-skilled endeavor was making an enchanting lavender baby dress and pink bonnet for my first granddaughter, Hannah. Now she has adorable twin granddaughters who benefit mightily from her skills. And her Chapterettes have benefited from her skills as well; included among other lovely gifts she has made for them are customized tote bags, featuring their names. She makes gorgeous purple ensembles for herself. She has even whipped up a full-length purple faux “mink” coat! She loaned it to me for the 2006 New Year’s Day parade in London.

Guess what I am borrowing to take to New York?!  Isn’t Sisterhood great? THANK YOU, Lady Patricia!

 

In friendship,

Sue Ellen

The January issue of HATalk e-magazine is out now and we've got some articles that I think you'll really love this month...

 

For instance, we featured some amazing hats by Maor Zabar, an Israeli milliner, which are true works of art as well as fashion items. Maor made our cover hat (photo by Jude Moscovich), which was inspired by the carnivorous pitcher plant, and tells us all about how he did it inside.

 

We've also got a great tutorial for you. Catherine Kelly, a hat designer from Australia, demonstrated how to make these beautiful ribbon flowers and all that you need to try making them at home is some grosgrain ribbon, scissors, a needle and some thread!

THE RED HAT SOCIETY LAUNCHES NEW WEBSITE PROVIDING MEMBERS WITH ROBUST & PRIVATE SOCIAL NETWORKING EXPERIENCE

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, December 20, 2016

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Print & Broadcast Media

December 15, 2016

Fullerton, CA December 15, 2016 -- The Red Hat Society®, one of the world’s premier women’s organizations, has launched a new website platform offering private social networking capabilities providing an even richer online Member experience.  The “Facebook-esque” platform offers Members the ability to speak directly with one another through advanced messaging capabilities, chat in a Members’ forum area, submit and view events happening in their local area, plan trips to meet Sisters around the world and so much more!  Playing online will only enhance the play offline by fostering meaningful relationships with other Members through a technology designed to enhance their connections to one another and the Society as a whole.  Queens (the leaders of local Chapters of the RHS) now have their own Chapter Group viewable only to their “Chapterettes” providing a private event calendar, chat area, document sharing, and event registration tools, in addition to bulk email and messaging capabilities.

With this new website launch, the Society takes its royal place alongside some of the world’s most powerful social networking sites.  What makes The Red Hat Society’s online tool so unique is that the users are boomer women with an affinity to the RHS lifestyle of fun and friendship.

The Red Hat Society® began with the gift of a red hat and has grown into a universal symbol for women around the globe.  The Red Hat Society® encourages women of any age to join (those under 50 wear pink hats until they “reduate,” while those over 50 wear red hats), emphasizing the value of cross-generational friendships and mentoring.  The social message behind the first red hat has resonated with millions of women around the globe, regardless of race, creed, occupation, age, or socio-economic status. 

By word of mouth, the purest form of viral marketing, The Red Hat Society® grew at a rapid pace thus garnering the Popular Culture and American Culture Association’s 2008 Award for its “Contribution to Popular Culture and American Culture.”  The Society has been the focus of major publications, ten books (one of which reached the New York Times Best Seller list), television and other media, in addition to having The Red Hat Society brand appear on a myriad of products.  Pop Culture status was truly achieved when The Red Hat Society® was the focus of an episode of the longest running animated series, THE SIMPSONS, in which Marge Simpson joins a local Red Hat Society® chapter. 

CEO, Debra Granich states, “This new website tool was the natural ‘next step’ in our commitment to connecting like-minded women to new friends and enriching their lives through the power of fun and friendship.  This advance in technology means women can join the Society and within minutes, be connected to other Hatters by geography or similar interests.  We are committed to staying at the forefront of technology.” 

For more information on the Red Hat Society®, contact Emily Yost, Marketing Director at 714-888-8132 or Emily@redhatsociety.com.

THE RED HAT REVOLUTION

Posted By Administration, Thursday, December 15, 2016

One of the premier women's social organizations in the world, the Red Hat Society® based in Fullerton, CA, began with the gift of a red hat and has grown into a universal symbol for women around the globe as they victoriously celebrate turning 50 and entering into the next phase of their lives. The social message behind the first red hat has resonated with millions of women around the globe regardless of race, creed, occupation, age or socio-economic status. Today, it is commonplace to see Red Hat Society® members out frolicking and embracing life to the fullest in their now famous symbol, the "Red Hat."

 

HOW IT STARTED

In the fall of 1997, on a trip to Tucson, AZ, Sue Ellen Cooper impulsively paid $7.50 for an old red fedora in a thrift shop. When a good friend was nearing a "fifty-ish" birthday, Sue Ellen cast about for an idea for an original gift. Inspired by a well-known poem, Warning, which begins "When I am an old woman, I shall wear purple, with a red hat which doesn't go and doesn't suit me. " she wanted to encourage her friend to grow older in a playful manner. She gave her friend a red hat of her own suggesting that she keep it as a reminder to grow older playfully - on her terms.

The symbolism behind the red hat had a profound impact on women Sue Ellen encountered. Those women responded by donning their own red hats and entering a new women's movement embracing a renewed outlook on life filled with fun and friendship, fulfilling lifelong dreams.

The Red Hat Society® was born. No longer would maturing women be invisible to society. They simply are not done yet!

 

THE GROWTH EXPLOSION

The Red Hat Society® membership exploded through word of mouth, the purest form of viral marketing, growing from 2 chapters in 1999 to over 40,000 chapters worldwide within five years. Women everywhere resonated with the positive ideas of fun and friendship promoted by the Red Hat Society®, and they were not about to be left out!

The Society quickly became the focus of major publications, ten books (one of which reaching the New York Times Best Sellers list,) television and other media, in addition to having the Red Hat Society® brand appear on a myriad of products. From Macy's to WalMart, the Red Hat Society's world famous brand was everywhere.

The Society was the focal point of the musical HATS! that was launched in 2006 and continues to be performed today. They were recognized with an award by the Pop Culture Association and American Culture Association in 2008. Pop Culture status was truly achieved when the Red Hat Society® was the focus of an episode on the longest running animated series, The Simpsons, in which Marge Simpson joins a local Red Hat Society® chapter.

 

MOVING FORWARD

With chapters around the globe, the Red Hat Society® stresses the things that all women have in common in relation to their life experiences. They reach out, with red-gloved hands, to invite all women to join with them on their march to (tongue-in-cheek) take over the world!

They have become their own women's movement – not strident, not angry – with a strong emphasis on the positive aspects of life, stressing the importance of friendship and sisterhood, the value of play, and a determination to find the good in life everywhere possible. They promote respect for all and the value of good will and good humor. Although their original focus was on women of 50 or older, the Red Hat Society® encourages women of any age to join (those under 50 wear pink hats until they "reduate"), emphasizing the value of cross-generational friendships and mentoring. They believe that their philosophy is ageless, and has universal appeal. They are always delighted to see mothers, their daughters and granddaughters creating their own "Red Hat Legacy" as they play together.

Today, you will find the Red Hat Society® and its members organically infused in all areas of life. From novels to a sea of Red Hatters parading in events around the world, the Red Hat has forever changed the world's view of women.
