Training the mind to follow the heart

Great leaders see the future and then make a plan to take advantage of the incoming change. For example, Ford successfully implemented assembly lines and Apple tablets. Behind these achievements were leaders who didn’t waiver, took the insults, and allowed their results to speak for themselves. Ironically enough, I remember reading an article mocking the […]

Open up your circle

We are all seeing way too much division these days. Take something as simple as news. I can’t just read what happened. First, I have to pick whether I want to get news from a liberal or conservative lens, for example, CNN or Fox News, and then I get corresponding facts. The vantage points rarely overlap […]

How to measure happiness

As my birthday approached this year, I had a conversation with my wife, which made me realize that I used to dread my birthdays. Why? I felt the pressure to show myself that with each increasing year on this planet, I had an increase in status to prove I’m on the right track. So, for […]

I’ve been guilty. For example, sometimes I would say things not to advance the conversation but to show […]

After having a terrible argument with a teenage daughter, she woke up the next day and said to her husband: “I’m going to church. I’m taking my kids. You can either how with me and save our family or don’t, and I don’t […]

How to experience the exceptional

We have a strong tendency to go along with the status quo or default option. In fact, in the book I’m reading, “Nudge” writes about how whatever the default choices are, many people stick with them. How can we harness this power for good? Interestingly enough, what comes to my mind is Toastmasters. For those […]

I’ve got to be enough (Ep #61)

Tammy shares how she became obsessed with, “I’ve got to be enough.” She became the busiest unemployed person. In fact, Tammy became a pageant director. A broken person mentoring young women not to be broken! Please listen in as Tammy tells the story of how the internal box that allowed her to forget about molestation […]

Target for compounding growth

Our minds need a target. For when we don’t have a target, we aim mindlessly. Quite literally. Let me give you an example. An airport had a problem with men peeing too much on the floor and not enough into a urinal. The authorities made a correct assumption that the mess wasn’t intentional and a […]
