Don’t let the common culture cloud your vision

So few people actually know who they really are, even if they didn’t want to copy the rest of the world and do their own thing, they don’t know what their own thing is. 

Understanding the past offers clarity for the future

Few things under the sun are truly new. Few circumstances can’t benefit from an understanding of the past. Growing up history was one of my least favorite subjects. I just felt it was a foolish waste of time to learn about things from the past, the future is what we should be learning about, preparing […]

The best path is rarely easy.

The easy path is rarely the best. It’s a natural law of the world. Doing good stuff is hard.  Doing the right thing is harder, the high road is the more difficult road.  Part of the reason for this is because the struggle itself sweetens the experience. The incredible vista at the top of a […]

Don’t take yourself too seriously

Don’t take yourself too seriously I think we all get just a little too serious too much of the time. As a culture, we need to step back, take a breath, and a freaking chill pill. Yes yes, there is time for seriousness. Time for down and dirty get it done serious work. That’s not […]

Priorities.

Life hits us with priority distracting craziness on an hourly, no minutely basis. Each little distraction is wrapped with a nice little bow and a tag that says “Hey, I’m really important, and awfully urgent, please pay attention to me, RIGHT NOW dangit” 1 out of 100 of those distractions are actually worthy of our […]

Find them, treasure them.

I have been around the block ya know, this ain’t my first rodeo honey. What I have seen, what I have endured, what I have risen above has been hard. But it’s been good too. Not everything that is hard is good, but from my experience just about everything that’s good is hard, at least […]

Stop, take it in, but then keep going.

I spend a lot of time reminding myself to stop and enjoy the journey. Paying attention to the life around you is important. Live the life, and create the memories with the ones you love. Don’t sacrifice the whole point for the hustle and pursuit of success. However, you still need the hustle. Make sure […]

Enjoy the simply mysteries

You don’t have to have it all figured out you know. You don’t have to have all the answers all the time. Life is complex, there’s a lot out there that you simply can’t explain, you simply can’t predict, and you’ll never understand. That’s ok. It’s ok, to not have everything figured out, in fact, it’s […]

Embrace Your 1440

We all have the exact same 1440 minutes per day. You don’t get more or less than Mother Teresa, Leonardo Da Vinci, Steve Jobs, or Martin Luther King Jr. EVERY MINUTE COUNTS. You have the SAME amount of time. THE SAME. The question is what are you going to do with your time? Are you […]

PUSH ONWARD

You know the days when you’re really tired, you’re just wiped out from the difficulties of life. The times when your legs feel like mush, you’re not sure you can actually continue, but you’re not anywhere near the end. You’re overwhelmed, you’re under prepared, and under motivated. Things are not going well, and you have such […]
