The worst thing about thinking this way

excuses, habits, rituals
Wellness excuses, habits, rituals. This immediately triggered a business application.

The challenge with permitting your existing culture today is that it makes you more likely to permit it tomorrow.

The challenge with not taking action today is that it makes you less likely to take action tomorrow.

The challenge with not doing what you can do today, is that it also makes you less likely to not do what you can tomorrow.

Dear Son

Imagine you’re having this conversation with yourself

Imagine you’re having this conversation with yourself…

Everything i do helps me simplify the way i think.

It helps me dedicate myself to the way i think.

That’s personal power.

The way i think drives the way my day goes.

It drives everything that happens today.

It drives tomorrow.

It drove yesterday.

It’s gonna drive every day next week.

And next month, guess what?

It’s gonna drive all 31 days in May.

Thinking much smaller might be the game changer

Top Disney Keynote Speakers
.think .differently


With less than two weeks before New Year’s Day 2016, many of us are spending a little more time than normal thinking about the future – the “new” year.

Where do we center our thinking?

Yearly or daily resolutions?

Changing our focus might change everything.

Self Control (Impossible?)

Professional speaker’s hippocratic classroom oath

Immediately felt something was wrong in the article


Would you stop what you believe in because others are annoyed?

One of my jobs is to think differently and challenge others to do the same. Not tell them how to think, only to try, right now, to do it differently. That’s my hippocratic classroom oath. Saying that to say this…

A Huffington Post article was emailed to Mid Life Celebration yesterday, and the reading began. Almost couldn’t finish. From a rare (which is the DNA of thinking differently) angle, it could be somewhat disturbing.

The author was going on and on about what other people would think of her New Year’s proclamation of wearing a bikini come Summer.

If Jenny Trout’s goal was to create a buzz to get folks to read Huffington Post (Huff Post loves when that happens by the way), she nailed it. It is a business for goodness sakes. No harm, no foul. Bravo even.

Yet there’s a part of us deep down inside that has to wonder, “What if Jenny just did what is suggested here, and canned all this bikini stuff?”

Maybe wisdom, intellect, insight, paradox, and business aren’t as sacred as we had hoped.

Dear Readers

Admirable companies and jeff noel make it look easy because…

Some companies are so admirable their fans become brand fanatics


So easy to label it a gift, this daily writing about Life’s Five Big Choices.

Simultaneously, it’s so easy to say the most admirable companies in the world are lucky because they have the magic to make things work.

In both cases it can be summarized this way:

It’s not the magic that makes it work, it’s the hard work that makes it magic.

There is no room for excuses in the pursuit of excellence.
