Here is Your Opportunity

Preparing for Opportunity Time is not a luxury we have. I wish it was.  And I wish I could get more on demand. If I had an extra 36 hours a day, I would have time to read all the books I want to read, study all the materials I want to study, and write all the pages I want to write (and, for once, get enough sleep). But I don’t have an extra 36 hours.  Neither do you. Instead, we each have 24...

Overcoming Drag

Experiencing Drag It’s tough, time-consuming work to finish a project. While there is always an optimistic energy when we begin a project, finishing takes time, energy (physical and emotional), and comes with no guarantee of success. When we’re doing something that requires our daily, personal energy to accomplish, a lengthy project can wear us down and make us question our efforts. This is drag...

building empires (the significance of habit)

After a long day (or a long week of 14 hour days) it’s normal to want to unwind, call it early, and go to sleep. I wanted to (I mean, I REALLY wanted to), but instead I made the conscious (and uncomfortable) decision to stay up just a bit later to write another post. As easy as it could have been to call it early, I wanted to end the day with a victory. That’s the commitment I’ve made...
