  2. Bad Moments or Bad Days

    I want you to think of one of the “worst days” of your life and what happened to cause it?

  9. Purpose vs Motivation

    This week I was asked to deliver a “motivational” talk with someone who was struggling.  It got me thinking that I don’t really like being “motivational”.  I would much rather have a talk in which people reflect and find their true “purpose”. When I think of motivation I think of vid…Read More
