1. Who Are You Listening To?

    As I approach being “retired” for almost a year now I find it interesting that some of the biggest projects I am working on were not even my ideas! The book, podcast, leadership presentations and a game changing collaboration with a couple other law enforcement power players, were not things I w…Read More

  2. Satellite View

    When you talk about your dreams, desires and successes, what do you see? Do you see yourself in that moment? Enjoying all the feels, smells, sights that come with making your dream come true? Can you see yourself overcoming obstacles along the way, persevering and staying true to the path? I think o…Read More

  3. Didn’t Feel Like Doing It

    This blog is coming out a little later than normal for some of you depending on where you read it, because honestly, I did not feel like writing it. It was not for a lack of ideas or uncertainty on what to say, I knew exactly what I was going to write about. I found myself making excuses, wasting ti…Read More

  4. Wanting More

    Almost everyone we know wants more. More money. More freedom. More time. More meaningful relationships. More, more, more in all aspects of life. Yet shockingly many are unwilling to do MORE. They are unwilling to try something new, to learn a new skill, to join a new group, to take on a new challeng…Read More

  5. What You Once Wished For

    Too much responsibility, not enough responsibility. Too much freedom, not enough freedom. Too much structure, not enough structure. This week I found that many of the things causing me stress or anxiousness, were the very things I wished for and dreamed of a year ago. They were the very things I des…Read More

    We are so concerned with getting things right or perfect that we spend far too much time analyzing and gathering data, information and sometimes our courage. It’s easy to dismiss our lack of action because we are still researching the best or perfect way to do something. We find a video or article…Read More

  7. Accountability and Forgiveness

    There are all sorts of buzzwords going around as people look to recreate themselves for the new year. To me these two words are extremely important and while they seem to be opposite forces, I believe whole heartedly that for either to be truly effective they need one another. We need to be accounta…Read More

  8. Happiness

    It is one of the most misunderstood and elusive words in our language. It is unique to each of us and can be different from moment to moment.  Many of us look at happiness as a random act that just happens sometimes and does not at others.  I believe happiness is a choice, an intentional frame of …Read More

  9. What are We Afraid Of?

    We used to be afraid of the dark, now we are afraid of what people will think.  The boogie man used to scare us, now we are scared of what people will say.  We used to avoid talking to strangers because of the dangers, now we avoid telling those closest to us for fear they won’t believe in us. …Read More

  10. What are your Dreams?

    When we ask a child what their dreams are, they can usually respond instantaneously with a multitude of things and they are excited to tell you all about them.  Yet if you ask an adult the same question they’ll quickly try to change the subject.  Or they’ll give you a surface level answer like…Read More
