February 11, 2014

Fear is a funny thing, meaning it’s not a thing at all, but we tend to think it is this big scary evil thing. Worse, we think that it’s a thing that strong and successful people can magically crush away, and we are somehow less-than or defective because we let it define our lives. Yes, […]

How to create “pulling power” in your life

January 28, 2014

On Saturday I ran in my first race in over 10 years! A 10K! And the best part is I got to share the experience with Griffin, who ran in his own 1K. I maintained an 8-minute-mile pace, which was definitely pushing it for me (and I was so sore I practically hobbled downstairs the […]

What’s a snowball got to do with success?

January 21, 2014

Last week I was cleaning out my garage and I found the book, The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life by Alice Shroeder. It was published in 2009 and my dad probably gave it to me as a gift back then, but I never read it, and only took the time to look […]

the scrooge cure

December 24, 2013

At this time of year I love watching classic Christmas movies like How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (the 1966 animated special, not Jim Carrey’s), A Christmas Carol (George C. Scott’s – once again, not Jim Carrey’s), and, of course, It’s a Wonderful Life. In each of these films there is a rather grumpy and cynical […]

are you too shut off to receive God’s gifts?

December 17, 2013

“There are joys that long to be ours. God sends ten thousand truths, which come about us like birds seeking inlet; but we are shut up to them, and so they bring us nothing, but sit and sing awhile upon the roof, and then fly away.” ~Henry Ward Beecher Think about that quote above – […]

want to know what really controls your thoughts?

December 10, 2013

The Reticular Activating System (RAS for short) is a tiny part of the brain that has a huge job. It controls consciousness and acts as a filter. At any given moment you have approximately 2 million bits of sensory information available to you. You’re only capable of absorbing about 150 bits per second. All the […]
