Take three breaths, in and then out. That's about 4 seconds. Our brains scientifically need 1-2 seconds for an urge to react to move past our amygdala (our monkey or reptile brains) and reach our prefrontal cortex where rational thought can take over. Today's world, the action now world, makes this super hard. We've been … Continue reading 4 Seconds
Using the back and white picture I took above, what do you imagine it smelled like? What colors do you think you'd see? How would the seats feel? What about the temperature? You think it's cold out? What sounds would be heard? I've learned that people will forgive what you said, people will forgive what … Continue reading Sensory Markers Are Keys to Avoiding Groundhog Day Syndrome
What's the worst thing you've ever been challenged with? I mean something that when you were done going through the grinder, it changed you, you were not the same as you came out the other end? The suck zone. It's those moments feel like you just ate. We don't have enough of them. True defining … Continue reading Eat Dirt

Even … Continue reading Forgettery

How much energy and time have you given to that next big thing you want to do? How much time have you wasted instead of starting? Did you already talk yourself out of your work? Relax, you're not alone. One of the reasons our biggest things we want to achieve fail us is we spend … Continue reading Today Matters
Complaining. "Why try, it's not going to be any different." "It's never going to work!" "We've already tried that!" "I wish someone would get it right." "Why can't they understand?" For most, it's just easier than the heavy lifting it takes to be the change agent that gets it done. Maybe we think, someone will hear us … Continue reading The Difference Maker
With our tendencies to flip into social media and fake news as ways to nurture/validate our self-esteem, today's post I felt is super important and relevant.
