The best gift you can give anyone is your full and true presence. Distractions are everywhere, and who has the time for anyone, really? I resolve from this moment forward to make more time for truer communication with those I love. This is what makes life more memorable. Generous Listening Inspired by Becoming Wise I’m thinking about how important it is to listen generously. How to compassionately communicate and hear another’s soul, even through the most […]

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 […]

“Life requires of man spiritual elasticity, so that he may temper his efforts to the chances that are offered.” ― Viktor E. Frankl “Change is essential for survival. All life forms must adapt to their fluctuating circumstances. All form of life result from the process of variation, mutation, competition, and inheritance. The universe is in a constant state of chaos. We each have chaos implanted into our bones. Nature wires all of us for change.” […]

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.

This post ponders the idea of turning sour feelings. a.k.a. – a shitty state-of-mind – – into persevering resoluteness. I am thinking about the alchemy of emotions. Turning fear into fascination; frustration into fortitude, pain into power and anxiety into assurance. It’s about turning my life around. Drilling deep into my psyche to pull through life with courage and conviction. What I believe to be True When we do things thoughtfully we have a better chance at […]

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 our motives are simply the presentation of how we hope the world perceives us. Powerful . . Intelligent . . Foxy. . . Strong. . . Compassionate . . . Sometimes though, we have to make choices. Choices between doing what we want to do and what we […]

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 […]
