Repeating this mantra softly to myself has helped me sail through the hours of overwhelming tasks in a day. It has stopped me from rushing and I hate rushing. Rushing just sucks. It makes life feel hasty.  I want to savor life. Even the boring parts. This idiom also applies to anything you do. It has helped me improve my days. When properly learning something new Any new skill that you are trying to learn should […]

 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, […]

If we are truly living, then we are immersed in a life of learning and growing as human beings. As we are growing, we are in a  continual cycle of aspiring, succeeding or failing. With wisdom we realize these positions are transitory. Quote from The Ego is the Enemy. Personally, depending on which “part” of my life that I observe, I am currently in all three cycles all at once. Aspiring, Succeeding, Failing I am […]

Our motives are goal directed activities that energize and direct our behavior. Our motives support what we do, how we behave and what we put forth in the world.

Sometimes though, we have to make choices. Choices between doing what we want to do and what we […]

  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 […]

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 […]

I love listening in between the lines. Especially to smart people. People like performance coach, Tony Robbins. Evan Carmichael edited an all day Tony coach session that you can watch here.  I am watching about ten minutes a day every morning and taking copious notes. Inspired by Tony’s tenacious approach, I created this surefire success equation to get anything you want. Anything. A raise at work, a new startup business off the ground, shed the last ten […]

Last night I closed my eyes before falling to sleep and made a decision. I want every day to feel more exciting and adventurous.   Or in other words. . . . A common song sung to a great melody is another way to find beauty. – The Art of Writing, Lu Chi’s Wen Fu. So, today showed up again. In all it’s predictable glory. The same usual sunrise, just slightly different. Another clean and clear slate of […]

Our perception builds and constructs our reality; which in turn becomes our life. With the help of our good, bad and indifferent judgements, our choice of language, our cognitive biases, past experiences and memories, we  assemble how we choose to see the world. All of these inferences paint the way we experience our lives and effect the lives of those closest to us. What we see is one thing, what we perceive is a completely different matter. Our reality is […]
