These words probably don’t need to be in your vocabulary. There might be a time to use them, but, my recommendation is, if you hear yourself saying them (either in print or, before they leave your mouth), pause & reconsider. For example “I’m also just following up on …” is much weaker than “I amContinue reading “‘Also just …’”

What Drives You?
I remember taking my first Zen57 Sunday House of Stability ‘Weekend Warrior’ Class. Sam told us to get into a push-up plank and hold it steady … for 5 minutes. I held it about halfway before I started shaking, bending, and bowing as my body begged for a break … while watching Sam hold perfectlyContinue reading “What Drives You?”
Your Shadow Extinguisher
Once you engage your shadow, he (or she) instantly feeds off of that. It’s as if he’s a zombie or mummy whom you have awoken from a slumber. He feeds on negative energy, expanding his influence quickly, looking to take over your behavior more & more. He senses that more opportunity is abound for himContinue reading “Your Shadow Extinguisher”
‘I Chose This’
I try to remember, especially when any particular moment or situation feels tense or tight, that ‘I chose this’. One way or another, I chose to be there. Whether by way of some decision(s) I made recently, or perhaps not so recently. Even if that means that I subconsciously chose this in order to teachContinue reading “‘I Chose This’”
As They Are
People don’t see the world as it is. They see the world as they are. Speaking for myself, even though I do my best to ‘step outside’ myself, and be ‘the observer’, it’s not really possible to separate from your own ego & worldview for very long. We can try, we can pause, we canContinue reading “As They Are”
Flexibility with food is important. I coach lots of people on nutrition, and often give others plenty of advice when asked. If you have yourself stuck inside a ‘diet box‘, I’m going to point it out. Even for myself: I know, through testing and experience, pretty much what has worked well for me to thisContinue reading “Food Flexibility”
If you are focused on ‘peak performance’ and/or ‘optimal productivity’, it is particularly important (in my opinion) to recognize as early as possible when it’s time to stop working. There is a point, or a line, every evening at which you are no longer producing high quality work. In fact, you might even be sittingContinue reading “Tomorrow’s Tank”
Tomorrow Never Comes
“There’s a sense of urgency in life that we take for granted. We think ‘one day, one day, one day’ … well, that day is today.” That’s a direct quote from a good friend of mine. That day is today. Tomorrow does not even exist. Tomorrow is only in your imagination. Tomorrow never actually comes.Continue reading “Tomorrow Never Comes”
It’s important to set deadlines. Even if you don’t meet them. (Of course, you should whenever possible. And if you can’t, let us know.) However, if you don’t set a deadline, then, when will you finish?
How many years of life do you have left to live? It – our own mortality – is not a question most people typically like to ponder. But you are not like most people. You face this question with eyes wide open. Make no mistake about it: whether you have 20, 40, 60, 80, orContinue reading “Urgency”
