Excuses...Busted. Destroyed. Defeated. And savagely.

Whatever it is you want to do...

  • Get in insane shape
  • Start a business
  • Retire early
  • Find your dream partner

...if you're feeling discouraged and like it will never happen, find someone else who has done what you want to do. SOMEONE has done it. And SOMEONE will inspire you. And probably have advice for you, too.

As my 49th birthday approaches I've been wanting to get in better shape. A series of injuries and life changes led to a few of my normal habits and routines changing and I'm not...

It Takes Time🙄But It Does Work

I can tell a big difference when I journal and when I don't. 

Journaling for mindset is a lot like exercise. You can't just do it once and expect great things. Just like you can't work out once or eat one spear of broccoli and expect the perfect body when you've been eating Cheeze-its while Netflix binging for months.

Daily journaling is a non-negotiable for me. It's spending time getting my mind set for the day. Whatever I pay attention to is what gets put on the path I want it to go...

Writing Your Come-Back Story

It's hard to really wrap your head around just how much money $1 trillion is. Let's equate it to time to give you a better idea.

If $1 was a second...

$100K (seconds) = 28 hours

$1 Million (seconds) = 12 days

$1 Billion (seconds) = 32 years

$1 Trillion (seconds) = 31,689 years

Our government has thrown over $6 trillion at the Coronavirus, according to the Washington Post - over 190,134 years to follow along with the above $1 = 1 second time analogy.

What does that has to do with anything?...

When Will You See It?

That all the pieces are already there?

Are they? you may be asking.

You think "If I could just...

  • Learn this technique.
  • Understand that strategy.
  • Do what so-and-so is doing.
  • Get some experience doing X.
  • Do [this].
  • Figure out [that].

...I'd be able to get to the next level which would allow me to get to the NEXT level and the NEXT...and then MAYBE all that would add up to the life I really want...which is X."

My dear...when will you see that you can skip to X a lot quicker than you think?

Where the Rot Starts

We were looking for "safe" TV programming for our viewing pleasure on the nights our 8-year-old daughter, Elli, is with us. We decided on a few episodes of Netflix's "The Crown" series that, in Season 1, chronicles Queen Elizabeth's first years as queen. Very enlightening.

I never thought about it from the perspective of the burden it placed on her shoulders and the sacrifices made by her loved ones. Of course she was tempted (and attempted) many times to impose her own will on a situation...

Work-from-Home: Love it? or Leave It?

We are all dealing with social distancing in our own way.'s pretty predictable if you know what predominant style each team member possesses.

I thought I'd throw in a little DISC humor today...Do any of these sound familiar?

SOME BACKGROUND: DISC is a widely accepted model of communication and behavior first identified by American psychologist William Marston. Millions of people have taken it to better understand their (and their team's) behavioral tendencies and maximize their...

And What If it Were Easy?

What if it were easy? I mean, we tend to make things so hard, and overly complicated. And then we ruminate on how hard it is. Ever catch yourself doing that? That's when I ask myself "What if it were easy?" 

That question is what we in the coaching arena refer to as a "pattern interrupt."

Pattern interrupt is a technique to change a particular thought, behavior or situation. Behavioral psychology and NLP (neuro linguistic programming) use this technique to interrupt and...

You're having to make decisions...FAST.

Faster than you'd like. 

In the past you've made the tough calls, and been very confident about it.

You had time to consider and weight the options. You consulted your executive team. You had considerable knowledge about what you were up against. You had time to get used to the idea of the consequences of your decision. And you delivered your decisions confidently - even the bad news.

Because you were confident about your showed.

SPORTS is Adapting and Innovating

Innovation is happening NOW!

NASCAR and Coca-Cola have been innovating...check this out.

Coca Cola was already sponsoring iRacing. Then NASCAR, with 7 races postponed this spring, got in on the action bringing some of their well-known drivers into the mix creating the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series.

Basically, this was a virtual race on a NASCAR-sanctioned track with NASCAR drivers on...
