Breaking Your life will get busy. If not this week, then next week, or the week after that, or sometime in the future. It’s inevitable that things will eventually unhinge, problems will occur, or something unexpected will happen: life is uncertain. And at some point in the future, your focus will shift entirely to the few urgent things right in front of you, and the less urgent (but often...

Why Keeping Your Options Open Could Destroy Your Project

Starting down the path to success is simple. To be successful at anything, you must commit. But committing to anything means you make a transition. When you commit, you transition from someone who dabbles to someone who goes all in; from someone who quits when things break to someone who takes it all the way; from someone who lets the claustrophobia of determination keep them from pursuing...

How to Make an Instantly Viral Product (This Might Not Work)

Remarkable This is a word not used often enough to describe the type of product we SHOULD be trying to produce. When we create a remarkable product, it means we’ve built something that not only impacts the person receiving the product (consumer, purchaser, reader, etc.), but we’ve impacted them in such a way that they tell others about the product.

in the trenches: an interview with Al Pittampalli

Today I thought I’d try something a little different. Instead of writing a mindblowing and inspiring blog post (at least that’s my intention with every post I write), I decided to interview a successful entrepreneur, published author and good friend of mine, Al Pittampalli. This is the first in a series of interviews I’m doing with some really incredible people. I’m calling it...

Sometimes the enemy is very clearly in front of you, pummeling you with everything they’ve got; other times, the enemy is lurking in the shadows right beside you, waiting for a moment of weakness before they attack. And your...

going to war

The War in Your Brain Right now, as you read this, the nerves in your brain are battling one another for territorial command of brain space. In fact, if you continue to read this (and all the other blog posts I write), you’re helping one side dominate the other (the nerves associated with reading, learning and instigating). The Enemy Who are these nerves fighting? They’re fighting the multitude...

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...
