Two questions i ask to get better at anything

Disney Keynote Speakers
Published yesterday, Christmas Day, The First Noel.

Do you know the two secrets to long-term transformation?

If you want to get better at something ask yourself two questions.

1. How will my life change in 10 years if I succeed?

2. Why do I want to get better at this?

What you gain is vision and motivation.

Simply put, if you know where you are going and it’s life-changingly (made up that word) important to you, can you guess what’s gonna happen?

Also simple: if you don’t know where you are going, nor are you motivated to figure it out, nor motivated to get there…it makes the previous question’s answer ridiculously obvious.

Live fully now: Tragedy and Hope’s Alan Watt’s video message:



Isn’t it a delightful surprise when someone puts together a beautifully simple and elegant piece of art designed around that which we think of constantly, yet struggle to articulate?

Everything starts with our thinking

What we choose to read and watch dramatically influences our thoughts


Everything starts with the things we think about.

We can think about anything we want.

If we can’t control our thoughts, there are endless options to address this.

This is our personal responsibility.

It is no one else’s.
