Be Here Now

Be Here Now

Are you ready for 30 things in 30 days?  If so, then let's dive in. I figure that if we're going to get this party started, then let's go for something BIG right out of the gate. The first challenge I'm going to throw out is maybe the most important one of the bunch.  It may not be the easiest to apply, but if you put it into practice, it will have the most lasting and significant impact in your life.  So here it is... LIVE in the present. It's sort of  trick challenge, in that, the present is actually the only time [...]

30 Things in 30 Days

30 Things in 30 Days

Someone once said to me about business, "what gets measured gets done". As I recall it was a stiff corporate suit, who seemed to take some strange pleasure in the various ways he exacted torture on his employees by implementing new and creative ways to micro managment them...but, let's not go there in this post... The point he was making was actually a very good one.  And it doesn't only apply to business.  It makes sense for every part of our lives.  Any plan worth its own weight starts with a clear vision.  And in [...]

Yard Work

Yard Work

"So if you think your life is complete confusion because your neighbors got it made, just remember that it's a grand illusion, and deep inside we're all the same" - lyrics from "The Grand Illusion" by Dennis DeYoung of Styx It sure is easy to look around and think to ourselves that life would be a whole lot beter for us if only we had... (fill in the blank) It's a challenge for sure in this Infomation Age, which was ushered in on the heels of the Sit-In-Front-of-the-TV-for-Eight-Hours-a-Day Age. I mean, if you live in America, you're [...]

You Are Here…Today

You Are Here…Today

I found myself quiet this morning...which isn't always an easy thing to pull off on a Thursday...and in that quiet and still place, I became lost in a thought.  The thought itself was simple enough; life is a gift.  However, the more I thought about it, the more I became inspired to reflect on an extraordinary benfit to this great gift from God.  And that is, the unique opportunity each of us has, every single day, and for as long as we draw breath, to invent and reinvent.  And really what I mean is, the chance to reinvent [...]

It’s Time to Travel Light

It’s Time to Travel Light

How's your stress level? If you're like the rest of us, you could probably afford to let go of some of the stress in your life. I've got a tip that I think will make all the difference in the world for you, but it's going to require you to change the way you think a little bit.  I know, changing anything doesn't really sound like much fun at first, but I assure you the payoff will be beyond fantastic.  Besides, if you keep doing what you're doing...you'll keep getting what you got. So are you ready to try to shake things up a bit [...]

Sharp Axes

Sharp Axes

"If I had eight hours to chop down a tree, I'd spend six hours sharpening my ax" - Abraham Lincoln There's an analogy I love to use when I'm talking to people about continuously working on their craft, and why it's so important that they never stop.  And whether you're a salesperson, an actor, a business owner, a stay at home mom, or anything else, I hope you can learn from this one. Think about the World Series.  The match up between the two best baseball teams in all of the major leagues.  These are some of the absolute best [...]

Beyond the Plateau

Beyond the Plateau

"It's what you learn after you know it all that counts" - John Wooden Ask most personal trainers in the gym about the value of cardio and they'll tell you it's essential to good health.  Most will say that at least 30 minutes of exercise a day is key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and prolonging your life.  Ask them what makes the cardio most effective and they'll probably say something like, "that 15 minutes longer" than the 30 minutes a day you're doing is where you really make a difference for yourself. The push up after the [...]

Hey, Are You Alive?

Hey, Are You Alive?

"The real question is not whether life exists after death. The real question is whether you are alive before death"  Where are you living? No, I don't mean your address...I mean where are you really living your life?  In the past, in the present, or in the future? Truthfully, we tend to live in all three of those places, at least some of the time. For example, it's really easy to get caught up in memories, great ones or bad ones, and it's also easy to get stuck there.  Sort of like a brain freeze, just picturing the events that [...]

A Little Magic

A Little Magic

Are you ready for a challenge?  It's not a ridiculously hard one, and it's not one that will take you more than 48 hours...but it's one that has a really cool payoff.  Are you interested? Okay...try this little experiment for two days. Whoever you interact with; at home, at work, at the grocery store, in church, at school, on the street corner, or wherever...interact with kindness and love in your heart.  Look for the goodness in every single person that you speak with.  Greet everyone with a smile, and make sure you say something [...]
