Do the Impossible

do-the-impossible

I believe that we all have a purpose. Something bigger than ourselves. Something to point our life towards. Something that actually matters. It usually comes in the form of a nagging feeling that you were meant for more than this. Whatever this is for you. Maybe your job leaves you unfulfilled. Or you've fallen out of love with the way you spend your day. Or maybe you just woke up one morning … [Read more...]

Stop Being Such a Selfish Bastard!

stop-being-selfish

I mean this in the nicest way possible. Sometimes you can be such a selfish bastard. Everything you do seems to come down to personal gain and how you can benefit. Even this post. It's all about you, isn’t it? You’re searching for something. Something that will improve your business. Or your personal life. Maybe your finances. You’re hoping that there is a nugget in here somewhere that … [Read more...]

Will Someone Please Punch Me in the Face Already?

punch-me-in-the-face

It just occurred to me. I've never been punched in the face. Not once. Not even close. In fact, the only physical fight I ever got into was in 5th grade.

And by mine I mean spouse and by show I mean doin' it (for lack of a less juvenile way to put it). I should probably take a step back and explain. Recently, I spent a few days on a marketing cruise as one of the speakers. And rather than getting stuck in a room by myself … [Read more...]

I’m Scared Shitless, What About You?

It's show and tell time! For the past two months I have been jumping out of my boots. Excited to show off the painted rock that I found in my backyard. I think it's something pretty awesome. Like a dinosaur fossil. I've been counting the days until I get to share it with you. Planning and scheming. Carefully crafting every word I would say as I stand there showing off this new found treasure that … [Read more...]

The One Thing Keeping You from Being Great

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. The battle cry of the complacent and the one thing stopping you from crossing over from good to great. Nothing will steal your dream quicker than that comfortable feeling you get when things are good. If Steve Jobs and Apple marched to the beat of that drum there would be no iPhone 5 coming out soon because the first one would have been good enough. If that was … [Read more...]
