Great Reading – The Stories We Tell Ourselves

Every Monday, for more than twenty years, a guy named Roy Williams has sent a memo to his friends, fans, clients, and subscribers called the Monday Morning Memo.  Every Monday! Period. He never misses. The “memo” is interesting. Sometimes it applies to what I’m doing….

OK. I’ll Try Meditation

A few things are universal in the self-help and coaching world. Exercise daily Avoid starches and sugars Sleep at least 7-hours each night Meditate I’ve tried meditating. It’s difficult. My brain is the kind of brain that never stops. During the guided meditation session…

Information or Confirmation?

I start every day with the Darren Daily. He’s a guru/life coach and I take everything free he gives me. And if I had some extra scratch, I would quite likely take one of his courses. This morning, he talks about how we consume information….

Beginning Again

I’ve let some things slide. I don’t make and sell my Donnie Jalapeno Salsa, anymore. It’s the best salsa that anyone has ever made, anywhere, and I owe the world my salsa (did that sound dirty?). I don’t write, anymore. I used to write…

Fear, Loathing, Hesitation, and Whining

I’m not a firefighter. I’m not a cop. I’m not serving in our military and I’m not deployed to a war zone. I’m not a tight-rope walker. Why do I bring this up? I listened to Tim Ferriss’s recent Podcast titled, “How to Overcome…

American Ninja Worrier?

I’m worried about 2015. In many ways, 2014 was my best year, ever. But I’m worried …what if I look back some day and say, “wow, 2014 was the peak? That was as good as I’ve ever been and will ever be?” I’m really,…

Goal-setting for 2015

I think something might be wrong with me because when I look ahead to 2015, one of my big goals is to organize my names, phone numbers, mailing addresses, and email addresses. I guess you’d call that “my Contacts.” Yup. That’s my “big goal.”…

Things I Will Do: Have Faith

As I mentioned yesterday, this past weekend I decided to pick-up Scott Westerman‘s The Spartan Life 2 and read it again. But this time …really read it. And then blog about it. Why? It goes back to that old adage that you should think…

Things I Will Do: Balance My 2014

The worst thing about having a blog, which I’ve had now for about 10 years, is you can’t hide from anything you’ve said or boldly proclaimed. I’m lucky, for the most part, only about a dozen people read my blog, so it’s not like…

Things I Will Do: Write a Manifesto

I’m a little slow, so I only recently saw the Holstee Manifesto. The story goes (as I remember it from skimming an article briefly, yesterday, or maybe it was a Tweet with a link) these three friends were fed up with the corporate world…

Things I Will Do: Check-Off Everything on this List

One of these days I’m going to have a burst of inspiration and it’s going to stick. One of these days I’m going to change my life, take control of my life, stop letting life happen to me, and make life happen. Is that…
