1. A Time for Feeling All the Feels

    Day by day as more information is learned, what we thought we knew is changed, and the weight of uncertainty persists, I find myself running through a gamut of emotions. I am worried yet confident, sad and happy, scared and fearless, determined but doubtful, certain and at times, full of regret. On…Read More

  2. A Cancelled St. Patrick’s Day!

    A St. Patrick’s Day in Butte, Montana, without a parade and thousands of people celebrating the luck of the Irish in the streets was downright eerie.  Businesses that would normally be bustling with people adorned in beads and dressed head to toe in green, were all closed for business like a Sund…Read More

  3. “We Can’t Not Matter” – Zach Mercurio

    This week I was recording an episode of The On Purpose Podcast and our guest, Zach Mercurio said something that really stuck with me.  In one of his explanations about his research of purposeful living and performance, he said “we can’t, not matter”.

  4. Our Value

    This week while recording an episode of The On Purpose Podcast, we were discussing business negotiations, your value and becoming comfortable asking for it.  During this I started thinking about how this applies to our personal lives as well.

  5. Quit Watching the Clock    

    As I was coaching a class this week, I saw our students doing something that caught my eye. This group of students went second in a round of conditioning.  By doing so they had the advantage of knowing the round was exactly six minutes, while the first group had to keep going until I called time. I…Read More

  7. Be a Blessing 

    As we seek to improve ourselves and our lives, let’s not forget about one of the most rewarding aspects to the pursuit of our success. That is our ability to lift others, encourage others, and grow alongside of others, who are also seeking their own improvement. We need to fight the urge to be res…Read More

  8. We Don’t Just Deserve Our Dreams

    One of the joys of coaching so many people from all walks of life is that I get to hear and see many of the same ideas, goals and dreams packaged in different forms. I cannot think of a person I have met yet, that did not have a dream they wished to achieve in life.  Some desire a bigger house, a f…Read More

  9. Visualize the Results, Love the Process

    At times, I find myself in conversations with people who are always jumping from idea to idea, business plan to business plan, from one great thing to the next. Many times, their next jump takes place at the same time the last great idea hit a bump in the road or an obstacle.   It is obvious they …Read More

  10. My Rule of 3

    On many days I find myself feeling like this sign.  I was always open and willing to hear new ideas, be pitched on new things I could or should be doing and I honestly felt like I was running fast and getting nowhere quickly. Being an optimist one of my faults is that I usually see the potential in…Read More
