What can I learn from this experience?

This is a compelling question and a complete paradigm change from most of the stances we take when we feel something needs to be changed or fixed. When we’ve determined something is wrong, such as not having enough money, being too fat, in a bad relationship, etc., we turn our minds into a negative “what’s wrong with me” mode and then resort to trying to fix the problem from…

Welcome to the New Year!

As hard as I try to pretend that it’s just another day, there is something undeniably special about the New Year. Perhaps it’s the #1 on my calendar, or the first month of a year, or the first day of a quarter… or perhaps, it’s the fact that I’ve been conditioned to think of it as a blank slate.

What if you only had 4 hours?

This is a game I play with myself and with my clients. This game had played out for me in my personal and business life many times.

I’m going through a bit of a business dilemma right now.

When you coach yourself, you get a different perspective. I’m going through a bit of a business dilemma right now. This has been compounded with the fact that my whole family has been sick for the past few days, which means no sleep for Daddy (or Mommy for that matter). Of course, things look a lot worse when you haven’t…

Who do you want more of in your life?

Who do you find yourself spending time with that you should let go of? Where do you go to have conversations that matter? Who do you want more of in your life? What groups do you visit regularly online to provide you stimulus and growth? These are…
