2007. I’m devouring every fitness and therapeutic certification I can find. I stumble upon something called the Egoscue Method. It was created by a Pete Egoscue. Most pain, says Pete, is the result of “postural dysfunction.” There are 8 major load-bearing joints in the body. Your ankles, knees, hips and shoulders. When those don’t stack […]
We tend to think of profound change as a process that happens over time. Sometimes, that’s true. But other times, deep, lasting change can happen in a moment. I have no idea if there’s a clinical name for it, but I’ve seen it happen so many times, I just started calling it “snapping.” As in […]
Work-life balance…BAH! Confession – I don’t believe in work-life balance. And neither does my guest on this week’s episode of Good Life Project, Mitch Joel. But, not for the reason you think… Living completely out of whack with your priorities, allocating your energy in a way that destroys your health, relationships and ability to live […]
It’s one of the questions I’m asked most often… What if I choose wrong? People are so freaked out about making the wrong choice. Traveling down the wrong road. “Wasting” time, money, energy on the wrong thing. Newsflash. With rare exception. The only bad decision is indecision, followed by inaction. It doesn’t matter whether you choose […]
In January, 2012, I had this crazy idea… I’d just released my 2011 Annual Report, a 40 page document that took people deeply into my life, my businesses, learnings and aspirations (my 2012 Annual Report is coming soon, btw). I shared a struggle that was very personal. I stepped into my own vulnerability on a […]
Today’s guest contributor is life passion coach and author, Barrie Davenport. She’s taking on a topic that I’m often asked about (and occasionally rail about) with an interesting, process-driven approach. Enjoy… +++ There’s been a lot of talk floating around the internet about finding your passion, both positive and negative. Some of it has come from […]
What if you blew up your schedule and rebuilt it around your ability to birth genius? What if you started with a blank, white schedule, then added in 4 to 5 hours a day, in fluid bursts, where you dropped into uninterrupted, hyper-focused “maker mode?” What if then, and only then, you added back in […]
My usual writing spot is a 10-minute drive. But on Sunday, I walked. An hour each way. No cell-phone. Nothing. Just me, my backpack and a path that wound across a bridge from Da Bronx to Manhattan, through the woods, along a river and through a park. Walking instead of driving, I lost nearly two […]
So, here’s the interesting thing about the early days of any visionary journey, there’s a whole lot of thrashing that goes on. It needs to go on. But most visionaries don’t talk about that “dark” time. Because it’s not sexy. It doesn’t feel good or look good to others. Nor do the great creators tend […]
I’ve had this conversation so many times. Maybe you have too… To make money, I’ve been told, you must position yourself as the wizard. The all-knowing sage who doth bestow knowledge upon the poor ignorant masses. You must be…the guru. The teacher of teachers. The ONE! I see this mindset in nonfiction book land in […]
