Not until the desire for risk is greater than safety

Bruce Lee quote
Yesterday from LinkedIn. Risk and reward are inextricably linked.


There’s no heavier burden than a great potential. – Linus, from Charlie Brown

It makes sense that we should greatly influence our individual self before we can believe we are qualified to influence others, no?

Desire and purpose are the twin siblings of positive change.

We can only accomplish something great when our desire for taking the risk is greater than our desire for playing it safe.

Balancing adventure with adulthood

Sign about zero excuses
Yesterday during a High School classroom tour.


There are different types of security. A roof over our heads, clean water, a stocked refrigerator, a ‘good’ job. The well-worn path society the herd travels.

Nothing destroys our sense of adventure more than a secure future.

The outliers movement challenges us to do something great.

To be adventurous…

Mend an important relationship before it’s too late, help raise money for a cure to something without one yet, or something in between.

Zero excuses?

Mid Life Crisis?

Mid Life Crisis?  Mid Life Celebration?

Two choices.  Maybe there are more, but it only seems like two that are obvious.

So if you had a choice, which would you pick?

No brainer, eh?

Yep, no brainer.  Then why are so many unhappy?

Because life is hard.  Sometimes, it even feels impossible.

Take Your Time, But Hurry Up

“You no longer spend your life hurrying around the corner for something which is never there”.Rex Harrison

If we’ve heard it once, we’ve heard it a thousand times.  There is no guarantee in life, except that we will die.

There seems to be a delicate balance between hurrying and not hurrying. We shouldn’t rush blindly through life, bypassing life’s simple pleasures.

But then again, we can’t spend too much time doing what pleases us, because in the end, there really is much work to be done.  Our: mind, body, spirit, money, community, job, sleep, errands, chores, etc.

If we take our cue from nature, animals are constantly trying to survive. There is always the threat of danger lurking somewhere.  In nature the saying goes, “Survival of the fittest”. I’m not talking physically, I’m talking comprehensively.

Ya with me, comprehensively.  This means your day will be really busy. Or not.
