Retool Daily

I've written about the reboot before. Subconsciously we do almost everything on auto pilot. Including our worst behaviors. Hard to change that when you don't really stop to think about it and dig in to change yourself. It's not the mistake that's bad. It's the chain of self-destruction when we continue to make that bad … Continue reading Retool Daily

Embrace the Suck

Do not ever settle for second best in yourself or your work. Our lack of ambition can be a life experience killer and keep us from truly seeing the best version of ourselves. We need to be obsessed with our ambitions. Until you do that you're going to leave great powers, passion, and limitless rewards … Continue reading Embrace the Suck

In our most repetitive habits, if we could just bring an attitude of surprise … Continue reading Approach Each Day as a Surprise

Today's world, the action now world, makes this super hard. We've been … Continue reading 4 Seconds
