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’m an unshakable believer in personal responsibility and that you either design your life or it will get designed for you. One of my top 5 desert island favorite movies is 13 Tzameti. I won’t spoil it for you but the plot revolves (see why I did there) around the game of Russian Roulette. Russian roulette is a potentially lethal game of chance in which a player places a single round in… Read More

My good friend Robert recently reminded me that, “Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is just the natural consequence of consistently applying basic fundamentals.” It’s a quote by the late teacher, Jim Rohn. (See Lessons Of A Lifetime.) It’s was also the foundational concept of basketball’s legendary coach and leader, John Wooden. This might offend you: I was lurking, I’ll admit it. I couldn’t help it. On my flight to Phoenix… Read More

Dan Gilbert first introduced me the concept of impact bias and positive psychology. Here at TED 2014 he explains why our beliefs about what will make us happy are often wrong.

Joseph Heller, an important and funny writer now dead, and I were at a party given by a billionaire on Shelter Island. I said, “Joe, how does it make you feel to know that our host only yesterday may have made more money than your novel ‘Catch-22′ has earned in its entire history?” And Joe said, “I’ve got something he can never have.” And I said, “What on earth could that be, … Read More

I was recently reminded of Alan Watts’ short diatribe about following one’s passion. I’m about to assist in a new art piece, and for it I was asked what I’d buy if money were no object. It’s an odd question because ‘money actually isn’t an object’.  Now, I know what they meant but money, like wealth and worth are relative ideas.  Misunderstanding these things as finite kinds of commodities is a reason… 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

I have an 11″ long tattoo on the inside of my left forearm.  It reads (wtm2s) and it’s a frequent and unintentional conversation starter.  I tend to wear my sleeves rolled so as a result someone will asked what it means at least once a week.  And while I love to talk with people, I don’t have a short canned explanation that can be delivered in the time it takes to pay… Read More
