Keep moving

It’s tough this time of year.  The weather is getting nice, vacations are coming up, days are getting longer, kids are getting done with school, and the last thing you want to do is to be out there working, training hard, learning, reading, etc.  The temptation for me is to be outside.  In the words…

There is no such thing as a wasted vote

This presidential election is looking to be like one for the ages.  We’ve got a political dynasty in Hillary vs the Republican outsider in Trump.  The upcoming debates are sure to be entertaining if nothing else.  These two candidates, despite winning their respective parties nomination are the two least popular candidates ever.  One is currently…

Is visualization the “secret” we’ve been neglecting?

A few years ago I was convinced to watch The Secret.  I’m assuming that many of you reading this have either seen the movie, read the book, or get the idea.  The general idea is that if you focus, visualize, and put the energy of your desires into the universe that they will begin to manifest…

Give yourself a mind break every once and a while

It’s been a few years now that I’ve given up on music.  I never listen to it.  When I run, it’s podcasts or audiobooks.  In the car, it’s children’s music and podcasts, or talk radio…yes I am that guy, getting old.  I’m at the point now in my business and life that I try to…

Complaining. Nobody wants to hear it…nobody

We all do it.  It even feels good to do it at times.  To “get it off my chest” and unload.  But don’t let the “misery loves company” temptation get you pulled into participating.  It’s easy, it’s even fun sometimes to sit with coworkers and complain about another coworker, the job you have to do,…

Move. Everyday, move.

Fitness is something that is very important to me.  Every day I try to do something that makes me sweat.  That requires movement.  But, like everyone, somedays I just cannot get that solid planned/structured training in.  Kids are up in the middle of the night, we have errands to run, we are traveling, I decide…

Stand FOR something

The important part of this phrase is the “for” part. It’s easy to stand up against something or someone. You hear it a lot during this election cycle, “I just don’t want Trump to be elected”, “I can’t stand Hilary”, “Republicans are bigots”, “Democrats are socialists”…and on it goes. I fall into this trap as well….

Morning Routine

There are thousands of articles and books written about morning routines.  They are written for a reason.  They are so important and people still refuse to make them a habit.  Try a routine for 3 weeks.  I don’t care what the morning routine is, just something to where you aren’t waking up in a panic…

Be useful

For years, since my freshman year in college, I decided that running was my new thing.  And I’m so thankful that it was.  I found peace though running.  I found that I picked it up pretty well and pretty naturally.  I found that it made me want to eat better and helped me lose that…

Ship. Even when you don’t want to.

I’ve read this quote.  It’s a big deal.  I’ve challenged myself via Seth Godin to blog every day for a time for various reasons.  I want to find by “voice”.  I want to make something my “scribe” as the Miracle Morning puts it.  To put my thoughts out there.  To me this blog is something…
