Make your best mistake

Website blog links
There are only a handful of people who’ve been here for all six years.


We don’t have to be ordinary.

Make your best mistake.

Then do it again.

And again.

It takes tremendous faith and conviction to believe what we want to happen will happen eventually…

By making enough mistakes, we reach the point of discovering a breakthrough success.

Not only don’t we have to be ordinary, we don’t want to be.

Not anymore.

Classic wish: to do life over knowing what we now know

Last night’s middle school science open house.


Ever wish you could magically do your life over, knowing what you know now?

While it sounds inspiring and aspirational on the surface, deep down it’s never gonna happen. There is no secret formula. We do not have the ability to be reborn as a baby, knowing what we know now.

However, and this is a huge however, we (unquestionably) do have the ability to be reborn knowing what we know now. It’s called Mid Life Celebration.

It’s what you’ve always told yourself you’ve wanted and it’s right in front of you.

Your move.

How many people has the guy on the left tried to help? And how many have bit the hand that fed them?

We learn so much from our mistakes, it’s tempting to keep making them.

You caught that, right?

Great things never begin with the bliss of certainty.

Blogging here is going to become more interesting in the coming days, weeks, and months.


Because today marks the official call to begin the official process.

Incredible what attitude contributes to making dreams come true.

Incredible, also, how fragile attitude can be when fear raises it’s ugly head and says, “This might not work. Be careful.”
