Time goes by quick! Make sure and get out there and hold on tight!

It’s a fast moving train you know; you need to grab on tight and don’t let go. It’ll be scary sometimes, exhilarating others, and painful as well.  Don’t let go. No matter what, Don’t let go.  Hold on to the little moments with those you love. Embrace the simple joys, the quiet moments, the smiles, […]

Take time to breathe in all life has to offer!

We are busier than we have ever been.We love being busy.We are proud of our busy. Up early, no time for breakfast, off to the office. 10 hours straight of meetings, calls, whatever.Hit the clock, out the door, sit in traffic. Get home, grab little Johnny, get back into the car, soccer practice you know.Grocery store, post […]

Life needs not be so complicated

We have a “way” don’t we? A way of taking even the simplest things in life and “complicating” them to the point of difficulty and struggle.  Why do we do this? Why do we take beautifully simple things and make them hard? Why do we brush off simple joys in life as nonimportant, or not […]

Answers to tough questions are often found while pondering majesty

Do you take the time to stare off into the distance and wonder? Do you ever just sit, think, ponder, and breathe? Over the last few years, I have realized a pretty significant lack of my personal ability to sit and do nothing. It’s not in my nature; I don’t work that way, and not […]

Find someone that makes the work worth it

There are a few that make it on their own; they strive, struggle, work, and persevere. Eventually they do “make it” whatever the heck that even means. They reach the top and achieve their goals, they did it. Alone, at the top with no one to celebrate with. Why? Leadership is a lonely enough road, […]

Trust is a fleeting life companion, seek truth and lean on that alone.

Blind trust, faith in your fellow man, belief in the good of people.  All foolishness in my experience.  I’ve worked in many industries, public companies, non-profits, religious, and secular, and I have found one nasty thing to be constant in just about every situation.  People will stab you in the back, screw you over, then […]

Life’s quick, carefully choose who you spend it with

There are about 7 billion people wandering around this earth these days. A lot of them are pretty of cool no doubt, and if you’re lucky, you’re gonna have a nice life maybe live into your 80s or 90s or even beyond, and you’ll get to spend it with a select few of those 7 […]

Breathe deeply and press on.

Day after day, mile after mile. Life can get busy, DARN busy. In fact so many wear their busyness like a badge of honor.   Do you know why you do what you do? Is there a purpose behind the busy, behind the constant barrage of “stuff” that must be done? Take time to pause […]
