The Myth of Working For “Free”

After years of paying to wear your favorite shoes, they’re now paying you to be seen in them. After years of speaking for free and paying to travel, they’re now paying you to speak. After years of ordering your favorite drink, they’re now paying you to drink it. After years of buying your favorite jewels, […]

Finding Your Voice

Early last year, I interviewed San Francisco illustrator and super-cool human, Lisa Congdon. I loved her work and her energy and we became friends. It’s one of the great benefits of that living breathing engine of connection called Good Life Project. One of the things we geeked out on was the business of art. Yes, […]

Fiercely Being

I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about what I’m building. And I’ve asked a lot of people what they’re building. Or becoming.   And I’m starting to think it’s not the best question. Increasingly, I’m less drawn by that metric. Not that I don’t want to create a meaningful legacy, I do. But I’m […]

I’m a bit fascinated and baffled by the disconnect between desire and action. We all seem to be clamoring for a better world, better life, better health, better relationships, better everything, but so few are willing to do the work.

Finding God In The Grain

Sometimes, I wonder if the closest I get to the experience of God is when I’m making stuff…   I was an artist and a maker as a kid. I’d paint all the time, draw, doodle, make Frankenbikes out of spare parts from the junk yard and built pretty much anything I could imagine. That […]

Taking Back Summer Camp!

Remember when you were a kid? The bell rang on that last day of school, you ran out into the sunshine and knew the next two months were all about freedom, friends and adventure. And, of course, the ultimate expression of that for so many was summer camp. Epic stories, friends that would outlast all […]

First, Learn To See

Put a business-person in front of a cat and ask them to draw a picture… Scrawled on the page, with rare exception, you’ll see some kind of two-dimensional, cartoonish line-drawing of a cat. Not the cat sitting in front of that person, but the representation of a cat that person was taught to draw as […]

The Legacy Myth

There’s a lot of talk about legacy these days. As I ease deep into my middle years, it’s on my mind quite often. What am I building? What will I leave behind? How will that matter and to whom? Increasingly, though, I’m wondering if that’s the wrong approach. The questions, they’re just so big. So unwieldly. […]
