Dreaming Big – Living Beyond The Doable

Posted on

I’ve been reading Gary Keller’s “One Thing”, which defines three types of goals: doable, stretch & possible. “Doable”, of course, is the low hanging fruit, the no/low risk path. “Stretch” pushes you, but you’re still within the view of “limits”; some more risk and more effort than “doable”. Then we have “possible”. Well, I don’t […]

The pursuit of balance

Posted on

I seek balance, balance between career and family, spiritual and earthly. Balance, perhaps the zen of yin and yang. Balance, though, is not a steady state, rather continuous action. Balancing, redistributing; because you can’t have it all, only what you prioritize Thus, knowing what’s important is critical. Having goals, big overarching ones to guide you, […]

I seek connection

Posted on

I’ve seen life’s frivolousness, the extreme fickleness of fate. A randomness haunting life. This uncertainty drives many to fear. Me? Connection: my drive is to connect, deeply, richly.

So, I thought it good to share some of what I’m experiencing here. Most delightful has been weightloss. I’ve managed to drop around 20 pounds since […]

Creativity: Stifling vs. Channeling

Posted on

From the perspective of the creative, direction (channeling) and stifling look very similar. Ultimately, it’s the end goal that determines the difference. Channeling is about helping the creation be the most effective, most powerful it can be. Stifling is about eliminating a threat, whether that threat is direct (ie: being offended) or indirect (ie: fear […]

TikTok, LunaTik & Social Business

Posted on

This company has interested me, the Apple guy and iPhone user. One of their devices is, in my opinion, the most effective case ever created. Not cheap, but wickedly awesome. I’ve really not noticed their backstory, though. Watching this video really impressed me with the ways they utilized social media and tools like Kickstarter to […]
