  • Are You Practicing or Rehearsing?

    If there is something you can work on, practice it and then take it to rehearsal to see how it can work to improve the team or group. Don’t wait until a skill is needed, bring the solution before the problem arises. The worst case scenario is that you improve yourself, and that is never a bad thing.

  • Style or Substance?

    Create your own goals and take steps to achieve them. Don’t compare your success to the success (perceived or otherwise) of others. Compare your success to the goals you want to achieve for yourself, and I guarantee that while you are taking steps to meet your goals you will feel better about yourself.

  • Hope Is In The Stars

    Seeing stars does make people dream. I am not sure if it’s the idea of points of hope in the darkness, or the comfort of knowing that in an infinite universe the problems we face are really not as big as they seem. We get to look directly at the handiwork of an infinite God and feel small and a part of infinity all at once. We get to see things seen by billions of people over the centuries and be a part of history. At the same time, we get to see it in a totally unique way, just like Van Gogh did.

  • I’ll Put My Thinking Head On

    The reality of humanity is that unless something occurs to change us, we will continue to do what we have always done and find our level. If we have always lived in poverty, sudden riches will not change the poverty mindset and we will soon find ourselves back there. Poor diet and exercise choices? A new body won’t fix that. You may have the appearance of having made better decisions for a limited time, but before long you’ll be back where you were.

  • You Can’t Teach Ambition

    The problem isn’t that “you can’t teach ambition”, the problem is that too many people who see themselves as ambitious don’t realise that not everyone has the same life goals and ambitions. Just because someone doesn’t have blood pressure of 220/110 and show their commitment by losing sleep and living with chest pains, it doesn’t make them less ambitious. It just means their ambitions are different to others who are trying to get ahead in the rat race.

  • Got Covfefe?

    Slow down. Take some time to reflect on your journey. Listen to what people are saying. Don’t sacrifice the journey for the destination, enhance the arrival to the destination by having a great journey to talk about.

  • Into the Fog

    If you are about to go on a journey of faith, planning to move in a new direction, or you don’t know where to begin on a major project, take heart and throw your anchor into the veil. Take that first step into the fog, and find the next step when you get there. You don’t have to know what comes next and you may be in a better place than you ever imagined when the fog finally clears.

  • The Athlete and the er… Not-So-Athlete

    Based on where I am right now, with my athletic kid trying to drive me to standards that will probably kill me, I am trying to evaluate how much burden is on the people at the higher level to work together to integrate the others into the team. Does development in a team sport always have to be about the game, or can we also help our kids develop by encouraging them to help develop others?

  • I Just Can’t Quite Finish the Job

    NLP is on paper the cheesiest and flakiest kind of psychology you can imagine. Really. It’s completely without scientific merit (at least as we understand science today), and in truth, on first look I would even say it is risky putting it in the realm of psychology. However… it gets results.

My World.

Sunshine mixed with a bit of hurricane.

Realm of hope

Underestimated, mistreated, misunderstood... Don't you think it is time to give yourself and people around you chance to let your light shine the world ? Here, I try to bring this possibility to break up, boundary society put in front of us.
