What if it wasn’t too late, you weren’t too tired, and it wasn’t impossible? Don’t waste the lessons of a life survived by not using them to design a life worth living. Imagine you had the keys to the DeLorean, the time machine that could take you back in time and visit your old […]
Watch YouTube Video Here You don’t have goals. You have vague wishes and dreams that disappear at the first minor distraction of an aimless life. That is, unless you write them down. A new year is coming. New hope, new dreams, but unfortunately it is often the same old us. Time keeps passing as […]
If you don’t live with intention, it will be no accident should you fail. Success starts every day, the minute you wake up. Morning routines are about intention. The dictionary says intention is a thing intended; an aim or plan. Without it, we are adrift at sea, another day, aimless in life hoping to […]
Sometimes How You Say It Is More Important Than What You Say The sentence hanging on the wall was simple: (This is my happy place.) Such a beautiful statement. We see such beauty and dismiss it with a quick read, a chuckle, and then move on through our day. What if there were […]

We are told that goals are important. Year after year, we have the best of intentions to make sure this year is different from last – no repeats. Then we rinse and repeat and wonder what happened.
Imagine turning the stress of your desk into a strategy for success As is evident from my previous articles, it’s clear that I’m not a big fan of how we allow corporate America to entrap us in a soul-sucking job that is not designed to pay us what we’re worth, stresses us out, and […]
The joke about the rat race is that even if you win, you’re still just a rat (I didn’t say it was a funny joke.) I did it. I was 37 years old. I had given 20 years of my life to corporate America as an engineer and manager. I did everything I was […]

It’s unnatural. All of it. The corporate America experience we call the rat race is really a maze in which there is no solution and no cheese at the end.
