Today I talk about how your beliefs determine your behavior, and how far we’re willing to go when we believe in something. I also answer an email about someone who can’t find work and is worried about falling back into depression. [Read more…]
There are probably hundreds of components that make up a great relationship, but I’m going to address some of the ones that make the biggest difference.
Whether a friendship, family, or intimate partner, when you adopt and include these components in your relationships, they will improve. But, just like I mention in the show, things go a lot better when the other people in your relationships also include them too.
When it’s one sided, it doesn’t go too far. But when it works, it can be completely satisfying and enjoyable. [Read more…]
What’s missing in your life? I honestly don’t know, but I bet you do. In fact, I’m pretty sure that you’ve been asking the wrong question all this time. “What’s missing?” isn’t the question you should be asking.
The real question is What’s present in your life that’s preventing you from getting what’s missing in your life?
Odd wording, right? But that’s just it: The way we phrase our questions dictates how we think about everything. And if you can change the way you think, you can change your results.
When you don’t know what’s missing, then you don’t know what to focus on to get it anyway, so maybe it’s time to change the questions you ask yourself.
What’s missing? No… What’s in your life that, if it were missing, would help you get what you need to fulfill your life?
Language changes your thought process. The question is weird, but in order to understand it, you need to reach a little deeper than you normally would.
You know what happens when you do that? You access your innermost resources that will help you come up with a solution.
Great episode on using language in a different way to change how you think. [Read more…]

It was 5 AM on an all-too-common winter morning and running a web agency had officially utterly consumed my life.
I pulled into the office, and juggled holding onto my cream cheese bagel and extra large coffee while fumbling with the keys to open the dark office building.
I’d sit down and get to work, trying to ignore my exhaustion.
At 6 AM I’d make another coffee. Then another. Coffee was all that fueled my ability to get through the crazy amount of emails, projects, fires, and opportunities that required my attention. [Read more…]
