I’ve written about time management more than once. Maybe it’s the forty-something in me but I’m obsessed with it. There is no commodity more valuable than time. Jim Rohn would say that effective time management is the best-kept secret of the rich (rich meaning successful, not wealthy) and I could not agree more. I also learned many years ago that time management is a kind of misnomer because you can’t actually manage… Read More

I could read this poem every single morning for a hundred years and it would never fail to move and inspire me… ITHAKA by Constantine Cavafy  When you set out for Ithakaask that your way be long,full of adventure, full of instruction.The Laistrygonians and the Cyclops,angry Poseidon – do not fear them:such as these you will never find as long as your thought is lofty, as long as a rare emotion touch your spirit… Read More

Sometimes I wish I could have known years ago what I know now. I’m guessing I’m not the only one. But things are complex and the more you recognize this fact along with a bit more patience for yourself and others, I’m guessing, the happier you are. Proof of this can often be found on Facebook where people are fond of posting their trials of being surrounded by so many other incompetent… Read More

John Krakauer, Bruce Lee and Anonymous walk into a bar… 1. Any challenge in which a successful outcome is assured isn’t a challenge at all. – John Krakauer 2. A goal is not always meant to be reached, it simply serves as something to aim at. – Bruce Lee 3.

These are ten books that have influenced me more than most any others.  They are the books I read, re-read, and then read again; some more than a dozen times.  They are instruction manuals for health, wealth, relationships and happiness. And I consider them some the best investments I have made in my life… Act Accordingly – Colin Wright  “You have exactly one life to do everything you will ever do.  Act… Read More

Some things become clear, then you decide. Others become clear after you decide.

1. This is a story about some of the most expensive advice I ever received. 2. Expensive is not the same thing as overpriced. In 2010 I hired a well known leadership coach at a cost of thousands. As did my wife. We were both feeling quite well about our lives and respective careers but we knew we had so much more we could still learn, achieve and contribute to others as… Read More

A great thing about keeping a journal is how often you unintentionally surprise yourself when you rediscover a sketch or passing thought jotted months or even years earlier – like finding a twenty-dollar bill in a jacket you haven’t worn since the previous winter. I go on small solo vacations a few times a year, they usually involve a surfboard and they always involve lots of meditation. I found this the other… Read More

“We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.” – Marriane Williamson, A Return to Love Registration (check)  Hotel (check)  Flight to Miami (check). I’m off to Florida in a few weeks for an exclusive leadership and marketing intensive with one of my mentors, Darren Hardy and I… Read More

Weekly conversation to self: You got a second? Yeah? Cool. The thing is, don’t worry if you didn’t get it all done or figured out this week, that’s what next week is for. It’s no coincidence that the people I hear complaining about others’ lack of intellect tend to be some of the dumbest I’ve met. They often tend to live in the most unenviable of circumstances as well.  Sometimes these curmudgeons… Read More
