There is only one thing I know for sure. I’m not getting this moment back. Nope.  I am talking about this very single moment RIGHT NOW, this ONE. Yeah, it’s YOUR moment too.  Nope it’s gone. . . forever, unless by chance I read it again or you read it again – and if we do, it’s just a memory. All this angst about leaving a legacy. Creating a more purposeful life. Finding your so-called passion. Those are such big, […]

I’m not sure when I adapted such a stressed out, hard-charging approach to life, but I did and it sucked and I am over it. I don’t regret much, but I do feel as if my fretful, grinding approach to work and life has exhausted me with very little more to show for it. All that grind, all that toil, leading to very little added reward. What a waste of energy. Sure I feel successful, but I have […]

 In my playbook, every day is Thanksgiving and I bet a lot of you reading this feel the same way. As we remain grateful this holiday, let’s take a moment to consider how fleeting life really is. . .memento mori. A Life That Matters  (A Non Religious Funeral Reading) Ready or not, some day it will all come to an end. There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours, days. All the things you collected, […]

This post is for me, but if you read something that resonates with you, please let me know. Comment below or send me a tweet @marketcouncil.   I would love to hear your thoughts. The Way You Do Anything, is the Way You Do Everything I’m thinking about why my successes are not more consistent. Why my life seems so yo-yo-ee.   A bit up and down.  Why I haven’t achieved all that I want by […]

You are the Eyes of the World

From Ralph Waldo Emerson’s essay on Behavior and the wonderful expressiveness of the human body. Wise men read very sharply all your private history in your look and gait and behavior. The whole economy of nature is based on expression. The face and eyes reveal what the spirit is doing, how old it is, what aim it has. The eyes indicate the antiquity of the soul. . . An eye can threaten like a loaded […]

  2. and try not to make anyone feel threatened or alienated.   Sometimes I get so damn angry with myself. I get so impatient with people and although they don’t say it, I know they feel resentful. 3. Be thoughtful. 4. Create new ideas, ways of doing things. Give the best away. Just let it go. 5. Reach out. Connect people. Cross wires to make new sparks. 6. Be the one to do the hard work. The drudge work. The […]

The Case for Being Cautiously Optimistic

Being cautiously optimistic keeps me informed and realistic while remaining hopeful about the outcomes I wish to manifest. Being too realistic can dry up my soul, but being too optimistic can make me extremely delusional. If I see only the worst, it destroys my capacity to do something and if I only see the best, I may become blindsided by the bullshit I’m telling myself as things go horribly wrong. A case for remaining causiously optimistic throughout the day. 1. I […]

Why We Fail to Become Our Best

Doubts don’t kill dreams, delusional thoughts do. Our half-beliefs and uncertain thoughts are trying to tell us something very important and it is our responsibility to listen up and act. Negative mind chatter These annoying worries that wake us up early and keep us from moving forward, hold the power to help us grow and become stronger. While most of us tend to drown out the worry, anxiety and concern, I am interested in finding out what happens when instead […]

What Moves You Forward?

Leave a comment
awareness / Goals / life advice / Living Intentionally

I wonder why you do what you do. What drives you through your day? Why I do what I do. Why do I desire deeper connections with people I love and admire? Because life would seem vacuous with anything less. It is important for me to feel connected, relevant, needed and valuable. Why am I  driven to understand where the world is headed? Because standing in the dark seems like such a frightening place to hide. It seems to […]
