Prime Your Brain for a Permanent Performance Gain (in a Few Minutes)

Monday, March 24th, 2014

Inside your skull is a massive supercomputer. You own it free and clear. With its 100 billion neurons, and with a typical neuron linking to 1000 to 10,000 other neurons, your highly networked brain is incredibly powerful and capable. Pick up a simple object nearby like a pen or a spoon, and look at it. […]

Disruptive Innovation

Saturday, March 15th, 2014

I must admit that I enjoy seeing the disruptive ripples that the Internet inflicts upon traditional business models. The old models do their best to fight to survive.¬†For example, New Jersey recently banned Tesla from selling its cars in the state, mainly so the state’s inefficient auto dealerships won’t have to compete with Tesla’s direct […]

Speed Up!

Monday, February 17th, 2014

Don’t use the “enjoy the process” mantra to justify slogging along even more slowly and watching your goals die. It’s a huge limiting belief to assume that going faster means you’re doing something wrong and creating too much stress. Making goals happen faster is often a LOT more fun. Fast tempo is HOW you enjoy […]

Coaching Coming Together – Recap

Here’s a recap of the audio recording project I shared in Coaches Coming Together and Why No Women. The recording project was an amazing success — even better than I expected. Over the course of 3 days, we recorded about 9-10 hours of very unique material. Our purpose wasn’t to create expert-style, how-to material. Nor […]

Overcoming Trust Issues

Saturday, December 14th, 2013

How easy is it for you to trust other people? Do you trust people easily? Or are you often suspicious of others’ motives? Do you trust life enough that you can quit your uninspired job as soon as you recognize it as such, and know that life will bring you something even better? Or do […]

Why No Women?

Thursday, December 12th, 2013

In all the feedback I’ve received thus far about our Coaches Coming Together audio program in the works, the most common question I’m asked is: Why are there no women on your team?

The idea of there being a clear hierarchy of needs, such as Maslow’s, […]
