How’s That Working Out?

Every once in a while, I think about being a therapist. Then I remember that chocolate isn’t the answer to everything (#debatable) and I’ve got a really low tolerance for inaction. Then, there’s one other thing that really puzzles me… Common scenario. An entrepreneur or aspiring entrepreneur is struggling. Or they just want some mentoring […]

Through My Eyes #1: 5Pointz

Today launches the first in a series of visual gallery posts entitled “Through My Eyes.” All the images in this series are either photographed (most often on an iPhone) or created by me. It’s not about ego. Honestly, I have no idea if you’ll find the way I see the world remotely interesting. And that’s […]

The Ultimate Self-Publishing Guide

I was jealous of Sean Platt long before I met him. The fact that he’s an awesome guy, husband and dad and he’s got great hair only made it worse. Sean used to write under the name WriterDad. He’d share things that made readers swoon. But then something happened. He tapped into what was happening in […]

Desire: Hedonism Or Happiness?

I’m drinking a cup of Oolong Chardonnay tea from Vintage Tea Works (while anxiously awaiting a new package of Bourbon Chai) and I get an email from my friend, Danielle LaPorte. You may’ve seen my recent conversation with Danielle over on Good Life Project®. The response was pretty stunning. All for Danielle, as always, I […]

Announcing the New Improved Jonathan Fields (Just Add Water)

I’ve been waiting for this day for a looooong time… I’ve been blogging since 2007, but my website hadn’t changed all that much since 2008. It didn’t work any more, on every level. From a technical standpoint, navigation was clunky, it wasn’t mobile-responsive, the copy was crusty, and my bio stopped at 11th grade (well, […]

When No Means Go

So, I had this post tee’d up for today, then I saw Seth Godin publish a post this morning entitled What “no” means. Seth has this bizarre habit of publishing posts on the exact same topic as me on the same day I’m looking to post. I’ll just chalk it up to a Samovar jasmine […]

Live To Tell

I don’t often read “list posts.” And I rarely write them. Story. That’s what it’s about for me. The content that matters most to me, that affects me deepest, is stories. Sometimes with a lesson attached. Takeaways are cool. But stories do what nothing else can. They bypass the scan-filter, draw me in, immerse me […]

Do It Because It’s What You’re Here To Do

Dogged attachment to a specific outcome all too often screws us… Scenario #1: Hey, why are you writing a book? Because, I want to get published. Then people will take me seriously. Millions of people will know what I’ve got to say. And they’ll see I’m an author. And I’ll build a huge career writing […]

One Person. One Moment. A Lifetime of Change.

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 […]

Can I Feel Your Soul Through Your Work?

Ever wonder “who am I to…?” Write a book, start a business, lead a movement, make art, stake a claim, land a role or anything that matters AND has a long history of kick-ass players and achievements that’ve come before you. What is there possibly left to do or say or write or create that […]
