2 + 2 = 4

If you memorize this equation, than anytime you are asked what 2 + 2 equals, you would know the answer.

That is all good and fine, but it wasn’t until you understood WHY 2 + 2 = 4 that you actually learned something.

Once you understood the meaning behind the eq...

JANUARY 28, 2008.

10 years ago today, I woke up in a cell at the Melvindale Police Department after a stupid decision led to a DUI. 

I very dramatically thought “my life was over.”

I immediately felt as though my life would never be the same.

I was right, but not in the w...

“Walk a mile in their shoes...”

I remember hearing that expression a lot as a child growing up from my parents.

As we are learning more and more about human interactions and developing our sense of self, the lessons of seeing a situation from someone else’s perspective...

Yesterday, I watched a great video of a speaker presenting at a high school leadership conference. His name is Jeff Yalden and he was addressing a group of ‘student council’ presidents from Arizona.

Two people stand in front of you.

A person with an impressive material resume. The house, the cars, the vacations, the bitcoin fund...haha

And another stands with virtue, honor, humility, love, caring towards others, an open ear for listening.

Who do we honor more?...

Every morning, I wake up and I read the mission statement that I created for my life.

In that statement there is the sentence that says:

I have made the decision, in advance, that I am going to experience struggle, hard...

I was at the gym yesterday and due to the weather, there was condensation on the windows.

I walked up to the window, and I wrote a little motivating message. It was a small gesture, and the message eventually “melted” away, but for a short amount of time, my message wa...

Yesterday was my birthday.

In the past, my birthday has often brought anxiety and frustration. It’s a day that forces some self-evaluation.

  • Am I far enough in my career?

  • How does my life stack up against others?
  • Did I do enough in the last year?

Those type of self judgemen...
