DAILY MINDSET “Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory.” - Dr Suess Words from a childrens’ book, but words that reach far beyond. It’s easy to get caught up in “life”. To be so focused on chasing our next goal. Hunting that next accomplishment. Dr Suess gives us a grounding thought: to value the present. To appreciate the moments in front of us, despite how tempting it may be to look ahead. In today’s world, we’re moving faster than eve
DAILY MINDSET “Motivation can get you started. Commitment is what keeps you going.” - Jim Rohn Motivation feels good. It makes things feel… easy. When we’re motivated, productivity just flows. But what’s challenging about it, is that motivation isn’t always there. Let’s be real about it. It’s not an everyday thing. We’re going to have tough days. We recognize anything in life that’s worth working towards won’t be easy. And it will not be a matter of if, but when, we are chall

DAILY MINDSET “The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.” – Malcolm X There’s something intoxicating about planning for the future. It’s the dream-world.

Action Without the thought behind, it’s wasted energy in multiple directions. Without action to follow thought, it’s nothing but a pipe dream. The
DAILY MINDSET “If you know your opponent, but not yourself, you will lose 100% of the time.” – Samurai Proverb To “keep up with the Jones” is an old expression about competitive neighbors. A power struggle - or perhaps better said popularity struggle - of status on the block. To “keep up”, one must be on top of their investigative game, predicting the next big move so they can outmatch. That may be a nicer lawn or a fancier family Christmas card. As we visualize these friendl
DAILY MINDSET “When it’s obvious that the goal cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goal, adjust the action steps.” Confucius We’re drawing close to the end of 2021. As we enter 2022, we’ll be planning some targets, some goals, some aspirations. As we put the time towards thinking of the year ahead, let’s do a visualization exercise together to help shape those thoughts. Imagine we’re sitting together in a coffee shop… and it’s the *end* of 2022. Just about a year from today.
