The joy of curious anticipation

What would happen if we kept our dreams, worked our dreams, sought after our dreams, and no one was around to tell us we didn’t have a shot, that there was no way. 

There will be times when the trials before you seem impossible to overcome

Maybe it’s time you got your butt in gear and stopped feeling sorry for yourself.

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. 

MAKE IT COUNT.

You know, most people out there work pretty hard. I bet you do. I bet you work pretty hard. I bet you’re not the type to sit around and do nothing, to sleep in for no reason everyday, and to get by with the least possible and not get fired. I think most of us […]

When others are sleeping, GET IT DONE.

Early mornings are powerful. In the US only 1 in 5 is awake at 5:30am. Only 8 out of 100 are up at 5:00am. 8 freaking people that’s it. In a sense that’s your competition. If you typically get up at 7:00 and but instead you shift your day to 5:00 you will effectively be […]

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 […]

They need to be tended to, they need to be watered. They need to be encouraged and cared for in order to grow. Even with all the work, sometimes […]

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 […]

When others quit, leaders must push through.

The path of leadership is never straight. It’s never easy. It’s never the walk in the park that others think it is while watching from a distance. The thing about leadership is it’s lonely, darn lonely; and hard, darn hard. What’s worse than that is it’s often the leader’s responsibility to not show the real […]

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 […]
