3 Life-Transforming Reasons You Should Go on More Adventures

Change Your Input, Change Your Life When’s the last time you made yourself uncomfortable? This question isn’t rhetorical and it’s definitely worth answering (at least to yourself). Why? Because your answer is indicative of the life you’re currently living – for better or worse. So many of us instinctively stick to what we know. We grow up playing certain sports and we stick with them...

Into the Unknown

Maybe I’m Crazy… In fact, I must be. Right now, as I write this blog post, I’m sitting outside a Starbucks in Boise, Idaho… I’m thousands of miles away from most of my friends and family… And I’m Homeless and unemployed. That’s right – no job, no predictable income, no home… And I have no intention of trying to get any of those things...

Never Compromise

Just One Person In my previous post, I wrote about great work. Great work is impactful work – the kind that resonates with a person (or a million people) for years to follow. The sole criteria for determining great work is impact, and that’s specifically and uniquely determined by the person or people experiencing the work. If you impact just one person, you’ve created great work. So how do we...

The Brutal Reality of Excuses and How to Conquer Them

What Do You Really Need? Do you really need more money in your bank account before you can create something worthwhile? Do you really need to develop a routine before you can start making something great? Do you really need more time in the day before you can dare boldly? Or is it possible that you can create something worthwhile regardless of the number of zeros in your checking account; or that...

What Will You Do With Your Dreams?

Dreams We all have them. Not just the kind when we sleep, but the more important ones – the ones we have when we’re awake. They come to us when we’re driving home from work, when we go for a long run, when we reminisce over war stories with an old friend. These dreams usually spark something deep within us.  They excite something dormant; something we didn’t know existed…at least for a moment. In...

Action It’s simple enough to understand that you must instigate to be successful. It’s much more difficult to put this understanding to use. And if our logical conclusions aren’t actionable, what’s the point? Here are a few quick tips I’ve compiled from some extremely clever, creative and successful people on how they created great works (everything from successful blogs, to best-selling books...

The Certain Path to Success

One Habit When my thoughts beckon my tired body homeward I will resist the temptation to depart. I will try again.  I will make one more attempt to close with victory, and if that fails I will make another.  Never will I allow any day to end with a failure…I will persist until I succeed. [The Greatest Secret in the World] If you could create one habit this new year, what would it be? How...

draw your own map

It takes guts to create something from scratch. It takes guts because you’re in uncharted territory.  If you’re inventing, designing and building something from the ground up – from idea to physical, tangible product – there is no template to follow. It takes guts because your project might fail.  Your product (or service, or initiative, or speech) might not live up to your expectations, or...

instigate before it’s too late

When the choice is lose an hour of sleep or finish that proposal for a new client, what do you choose? We all understand crunch time – refocusing and re-energizing our work to meet a deadline. Procrastination always leads to this situation.  And there is nothing wrong with this. But let’s say there is no deadline – that the only deadline is your life expectancy.  Could be...

what will you create

Too many options… That’s the problem we have now. Too many options. 20+ years ago, that wasn’t the problem. There was a bottleneck of information, production, and distribution. That bottleneck created scarcity. Those who controlled the land, factories, or people decided what would be created and what shipped. Not now.
