Millennials

I’m not breaking any news, here, but my sister shared this video with me and I can’t stop thinking about it and, actually, can’t stop thinking about how it applies to my 13, 12, and 10 year old? Hell …how does it apply to…

To Agree or Disagree, Which Do I Notice?

I wonder if I notice quotes because they fit in with my thoughts at a certain time, or do I notice quotes because they conflict with my current state of mind? This is a bad example, but if I’m thinking, “I’m going to exercise…

The World Revolves Around Me?

No. The world doesn’t revolve around me. Did you see the question mark in the blog title? Sometimes, however, I feel like the choices I make are completely egomaniacal and force the people I love (mainly my wife) to bow to my selfish demands….

A Good Ballad Can Still Be a Hit

Sometimes I wonder if we’ll never have crooners and ballads as part of the Billboard Top-40. I remember the ’80s (and early ’90s) when Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Phil Collins, Michael Bolton, Celine Dion, and Boyz II Men clogged up the Top-40 and Top-10…

Mind Shift, Sleep Shift

Anyone have any thoughts on shifting one’s entire hours-of-operation? I ask because I seem incapable of sleeping past, oh, 4 or 4:30 a.m. Waking up at 4:30 a.m. isn’t the end of the world, but it means I have to head to bed at…

Time for New Shoes

If you know me, I’m an Adidas man. Always have been. Since I was in my late teens, all my running and athletic shoes have been Adidas, except for a pair of minimal Nike running shoe in the mid-2000s that mimicked barefoot running, and…

Time to Fix This Year

My Life: Q1 came and went and it’s time to look back, take stock, and implement action items for Q2 and Q3. Like a business, I’m going to review my goals and objectives and re-calibrate. The bad. Sleeping – I’m getting about 6 restless…

Balance

At a staff meeting last week, the entire group was prompted to share their goals for 2015. Mine was lame – to write down a minimum of 4 specific goals each week and do those things. To make it public, as in, detail them…

Things I Wonder: Could This Blog be Better?

Could this blog be better? Yes, of course. But how? As a guy who’s been blogging for nearly a decade (I’m rounding up), you’d think I’d have it all figured out, by now. I don’t. I feel like I should just go back to…

Things I Wonder: Am I Among the Top 1%?

Am I among the very elite at any particular thing? Are you? Aren’t we all trying to be elite at something? Or is it enough for most of us to be very good? Is it ‘OK’ to be ‘OK’. As I’ve reflected recently, I’ll…

Things I Wonder: What To Do with Endless Possibilities?

We all understand the world is full of endless opportunities, right? Nowadays, there’s hardly an idea too big to dream? I’ve come to grips I’ll never play point-guard in the NBA, mind you, but I’m not willing to concede I can’t be a mini-salsa…

Things I Wonder: Why Am I Afraid?

All day long I pick up the phone and call people who (a) don’t know me, (b) probably don’t want to talk to me, or (c) will be rude to me. And if I make 10 phone calls, 9 will end in disappointment. But…
