You push me to come up with new and different experiences and learning so that I have content to post here weekly. You … Continue reading Thank You!
The best way to provide emotional first aid to others is often just to listen. Our problem, we listen to respond more often then listening to just learn so we can support. Sophie Andrews has a great lesson for us in this Ted Talk. It's a little longer than I usually post for a video, … Continue reading Just Listen
When we say we don't have time for something, what we're really saying is it's not a priority. Writing, reading, and learning is a priority for me. It's my library and space that I use constantly to connect with everyone in my social reach. People do not decide their futures, they decide their habits and … Continue reading What’s the Priority?
If we had absolutely no fear (which by the way fear is a made up thing we created) at all, what would our potential really be? Would you try to be a rock star? Run across the United States? Jump from a plane? This fear of failure we need to reconcile. Every creative person both … Continue reading Let Yourself Out, The World Needs You
I have a constant curiosity in human behavioral studies and learning. I enjoy studying both when we are at our best and when we are at our worst. It's healthy to explore this. I think if more people practiced human social and human behavioral work we'd be a different human race today. Instead, we get … Continue reading Our Best and Worst Selves

With rage and anger so relevant in this age of instant access, self-awareness and our … Continue reading Rage Agility

I came into a conversation half way in, chip on my shoulder that I had all the answers, and totally took a situation sideways that helped no one. Insert face-plant here: 🤦🏻♂️ Not the best way to motivate … Continue reading Understanding Needs
Hello 👋🏻 It's great to be back from vacation in Hawaii. I had a lot of time to just listen to myself and reflect. I completely disconnected from work and blogging. I believe you have to take a break from what you're good at, to find how to be great at it when you come … Continue reading Addressing the Gap
Hello 👋🏻 and Aloha! My posting schedule will be kind of interrupted. I've been on vacation for a few days in beautiful Hawaii with my wife. I'll be back to normal posting three to four times a week beginning the 10th of April. For now, just a simple lesson. You work to hard. Take a … Continue reading Vacations. Take One.
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
