If you gave your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.

Dear Son, in the stunning presence of nothingness

father and son bike ride
Last night we spoke about Halloween (in three days) being the kick off for ‘running’.


Dear Son, in the stunning presence of nothingness, with a Big Bang Theory rerun on the TV, last night became one of the best nights of 2015.


Because you and i talked about ‘nothing’ for an hour.

We both wound up lying on the floor just chatting about ‘life’.



No agenda.

And i remember it like it happened 10 seconds ago – that moment when i closed the laptop, set it aside, and slid off the couch onto the floor.

The speech’s content is as powerful as the wheel was to progress

First thing i see on LinkedIn at 530am yesterday. My speech’s message is their new wheel.


Are mistakes really gifts in disguise?


Success is built upon a foundation of failure.

Mid Life Celebration, and yesterday’s Leadership Keynote speech was fertilized with failure.

The long way is the short cut.

Merry Christmas 2014.

Hope your December – and however you spent it – brought you unspeakable joy and delight.

Something entirely different this year is necessary.


Inspired by an attitude of positive, good and decent living.

Our clock is ticking.

Do the crazy stuff that inspires the heck out of you.

At some point in life, habitually putting this off is criminal.

Living seldom stops us. What stops us is our fear of living

Let the memories begin right here, right now


Dear son, thank you for an amazing 36 hours. Perhaps the best evening and next day – back to back conversations ever.

Dear readers, thank you for your amazing support after all these years.

Living seldom stops us. What stops us is our fear of living.

Mistakes and failures are gifts.

Life altering gifts.

Embrace them.

Chase them.
