FOMO. Fear of missing out. It's real. We don't live in the moments enough that we are given. Those very small significant moments that define us. The ones that can bring about the very best version of ourselves if we let them. If we could just be present long enough to notice the pattern before … Continue reading Your Moments
How well we want to be is really dependent on us. We can say others or other situations we may be in are to fault, but ultimately control lies in ourselves. I want to explore more than 2 months into our new year some this idea of personal wellness. Wellness of course is all-encompassing and … Continue reading How Well Are We? How Well Do We Want To Be?
The sun is new each day.What would be different if we approached each new day with surprise and wonder? Yet, we leave our ground hog goggles on and somehow blame everyone else for our condition that we have complete control over. In our most repetitive habits, if we could just bring an attitude of surprise … Continue reading Approach Each Day as a Surprise
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

Tough challenge and uncertainty, green light. We are all going to hit that suck zone sooner than later. What we decide … Continue reading All I See Are Green Lights
My last post was 2/7/2018 over almost two weeks ago. I went ghost with posting and writing. Sometimes with your craft and work, its the best thing you can do. What I have been up to during that time? Several things actually. Studying subject matter and ingesting just about everything I can get my … Continue reading Time Will Tell
We're to hard on ourselves. We often times convince ourselves that if we don't have some measure of perfection in our work, it's not worth it. Anything less than perfect is a failure. We talk ourselves out of what might be one of the biggest break throughs of our careers or lives. The first thing … Continue reading Finis (No, It’s Not Missing a “H”)
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
