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 [...]

First Things First

First Things First

Okay, I want to jump right into this. I talked about posting daily questions or challenges or thoughts that we could all apply to our own lives in the hope that those things would lead us to a place where we are all living with passion and purpose, and following our hearts to the truest extent of those words.  Of course this was really inspired by listening to all of the tributes to Steve Jobs in light of his passing from this world the other day. If you didn't read the post I'm referring to, you can check it out here, so you'll know [...]

No Regrets

No Regrets

"Running through the changes, going through the stages, Coming round the corners in my life, Leaving doubt to fate, staying out too late, Waiting for the moon to say goodnight. And I could cry for the time I've wasted, But that's a waste of time and tears, And I know just what I'd change if I went back in time somehow, But there's nothing I can do about it now" -lyrics from "Nothing I Can Do About It Now" by Beth Nielsen-Chapman Willie Nelson sings that song and it's one of my all time favorites.  I [...]

The One Thing That Changes Everything

The One Thing That Changes Everything

Life is what you make it. You can choose to be miserable or you can choose to be content. Regardless of what you have or don't have. You can choose to be happy or you can choose to be upset. Regardless of the circumstances that you think are defining you. You can choose to sit on your butt and do nothing or you can choose to get out there and LIVE your life with passion and purpose. Your choice. No matter what. And that is the plain, no-BS, absolute, bottom line, truth of all truths. You get to choose how you take the [...]

Just Add E

Just Add E

Just add water. Are there three sweeter words in a "how to prepare" list anywhere on the planet?   I don't think so.  It's like magic! All you do is take the powdery stuff in the pouch, pour it into a bowl, and just add water.  You're home free. In this sense, water becomes even more amazing than you already thought it was.  It becomes the Super Ingredient that makes all of the other ingredients contained in their various cans, bags, and boxes come to life. What if I told you there a was a Super Ingredient for your life [...]

Fear, Itself

Fear, Itself

Fear sucks. It paralyzes.  Physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. It stops great things from happening. It causes otherwise successful people to quit whatever they are pursuing or to not even muster the strength or courage to get started. It's a monster of the ugliest and most dangerous type. Edmund Burke once said, "the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing". I would say the same thing about fear.  In order for fear to grow legs and become real, we have to check out and do [...]

Lose the Jacket!

Lose the Jacket!

Comfort zones are sort of like straitjackets for the soul. I just made that one up.  But if you think about it, it's true... There's nothing more confining and limiting than remaining in the same spot in life, doing the same things, and being the same person, over and over and over.  And all because it's comfortable. The classic definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result, right?  And of course, the classic fashion statement for the insane person is the straitjacket.  At [...]
