Find Your Guide Rope

Feb 16, 2018

Blizzards in North Central Montana can be brutal. My mother grew up on a farm and ranch there. When a massive snow storm would come in they would still need to take care of their animals.

My grandpa tied a guide rope between the house and the barn. The guide rope wasn't there for before or after the storm. After all, once the...

Life Doesn't Happen To You

Feb 09, 2018

I used to think that life happened to me. It was a series of events that I had no control over. I could only react to it.

Then my dear friend, colleague, and coach showed me a different way of looking at things.

Once, I shifted my perspective, my life changed dramatically for the better. All of sudden, all of these things that I...

The Power of a Raindrop

Feb 02, 2018

Have you ever wanted something but didn't know how to get it? Did it seem unattainable? Always out of reach? Just like a mountain in the distance, always towering over you and always out of reach.

It doesn't have to seem so hard. 

Consider this: compare a rock to a raindrop. Obviously, the rock is stronger than a...

Presenting my Best Self: Dog Poo Edition

Jan 26, 2018

I recently had an amazing opportunity to present my best self to a neighbor. 

You see, I live in an apartment complex with dogs. A LOT of dogs. Some neighbors are very good at picking up after their dogs. In the hot Arizona sun, it can create quite an unsightly mess.

I had just left my apartment and Izzy, my service dog,...

Living Life in the Right Lane

Jan 19, 2018

Driving through Phoenix traffic comes with its own challenges.

Should you keep up with the locals? Should you crawl along with the snowbirds?

What if there was a different way? I challenged myself to look at driving differently. For an entire month, I drove the speed limit.

It was difficult at first. I wanted to get sucked back...

The Wasp

The other day, a wasp got trapped in the house. It couldn't get back outside. Not for lack of trying, but because it kept trying to fly through the window.

It kept hitting the glass over and over and over again. It saw the goal, but couldn't figure out how to overcome the barrier.

How are we different than a wasp?

Generate Momentum

You may remember my first video about celebrating wins. I talked about how to celebrate your wins in order to generate momentum. Recently, my girlfriend, Val, and I celebrated a win and then used that momentum to create a domino effect of more wins!

Making Bold Choices

This is more than a year in review...

This is a huge thank you and a love letter from me to all of my family, friends, and team. When I see how far I've come this year, not to mention how much I've grown and changed in the last few years, I'm completely humbled and grateful. 

It all started out with a desire to do more. To...

Three Traits of a Good Leader

Dec 21, 2017

I was asked one time as a United States Marine Corps Officer, "what are the traits that it takes to be a good leader?" I thought about it, about the things that I saw going into being a unique and effective leader. Here are the three things I consider essential. 

First: be a good person. Being a good person comes from...

How to Generate Momentum

Nov 29, 2017
 

Not that long ago, I didn't have a lot of wins. I had just left the Marine Corps and was bouncing between a lot of jobs in Bozeman Montana. Construction. Roofing. Packing. It wasn't for me. Not a good fit. I needed something different. 

I didn't know what to do next and I didn't recognize how vital a role that momentum...
