Trust Your Journey

So good….
“Be grateful for what you have, but mindful of what you can become.”


Your values are your bedrock. Whatever are your values, may they serve as your guidepost and allow you to be your best you.
My values define how I live:
Good – be a good person, do good things
Drive – to achieve goals and good things

Another 365 Days of Meditation

Some people talk about meditation as if it is some kind of magical, life changing practice but for most of us and certainly for me, it has been both wonderful and frustrating at the same time.
It was tough for me to begin meditating many years ago – we are conditioned by our culture and devices…


I will always be working towards these goals:
– focus on the present / enjoy the journey as much as the destination
– business adds to your life (instead of the other way around)
– pursue simplicity
– embrace reality, learn from it and prosper from it 
– be of service, help others 
– make a positive impact on lives of others

Are you ok with uncertainty?

After seeing that insane Volvo commercial with Jean Claude Van Damme, the tune stuck in my head so I looked it up. I found what is both a sweet love song by Enya and a zen-like tribute to acceptance of whatever may be.
Only Time – Enya
Who can say where the road goes
Where the…

Wisdom, Courage & Serenity Prayer

There is so much goodness packed into this simple and ageless prayer.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference
Whether you believe in God or not, or whether you have your own vision of God, this is…

Outsource your worrying

My friend Brent doesn’t worry. He says he outsources his worry to the Universe.
He figures there is no point in worrying about things that you have no control over. I agree wholeheartedly. If your worrying isn’t going to make a difference why bother? Why invest energy in something that at best has no positive…

Take Three Deep Breaths

Last year I accidentally hired a meditation coach. Seriously…. I went looking for a business coach who could help me with a specific business challenge I was experiencing and wound up engaging someone who teaches meditation.
Here’s how it happened. I combed the Internet until I found one with the background I was looking for…
