Owner'S Mind

  • You Will Never See Us Coming

    …, and we can just listen to the shows we like instead. That’s how innovation actually works. It’s rarely a direct port from one experience to another. That person felt that traffic was the “secret sauce” of terrestrial radio, but that’s so far from the truth, it’s hilarious. For a certain demographic right now, maybe? But that’s not even as true…

  • Measure Your Wealth in Options

    … I was lamenting the fact that business has been slow over the last handful of weeks (end of the year and first of the year aren’t exactly the roaring seasons for keynote speakers and professional development experts), but a little change of perspective really turned me around. Because there’s a lesson in it that would be useful to an owner like…

  • Become a Bigger You

    … On a recent trip to Las Vegas, I found myself observing many people who were dressed for their nights on the town as if they were starring in a movie or TV show about Vegas. They wore shiny faux-gold sunglasses at night (pretty sure they don’t do this at home). They left three or so buttons undone on their shirts (can you imagine that kind…

  • Look Beyond the Sniper Rifle

    … I had the pleasure of interviewing Brandon Webb, CEO of Force 12 Media about many things: his writing, his web empire, his books, his view on ISIS, and a lot more. His background, such as it is, includes having run the US Navy SEAL sniper training program and training several of the world’s deadliest snipers. What ended up being interesting…

  • Follow the Value

    … you deliver? What are you doing for the people you serve? And how much of your time do you spend delivering that value versus all the other “stuff” that makes up your business? It’s that last question that should sting a little bit. Value Comes from Understanding I just had a great conversation with a friend (someone I’m coaching). He works…

  • Building a Culture of High Performance Training

    … is a daily event, like eating and sleeping. Training is learning applied to a specific path. High performance training is a matter of measurement. There’s a huge difference between people who walk into a gym and “work out” for an hour versus those people who are there training for a specific event or set of capabilities. The concept of “high performance…

  • Work Life Balance?

    … I just finished watching a documentary on Paul Levesque, better known as Triple H, a professional wrestler, now helping shape the WWE and sports entertainment. In it, the recurring theme was that Paul had a very strong work ethic, that he pushed harder, worked harder, did more than those around him. His intense level of dedication to his work…

  • What I’ve Come to Learn About Learning

    … I’ve come to learn that I’m somewhat different than other people when it comes to learning. I’m there for the candy bar, not the wrapper. And yet, I understand it, after the fact. Let me explain. People Want Their Learning to LOOK Very Formal In my experience, I find that the best lessons I’ve ever learned came during “between official moments…

  • Find Intensity

    … I’ll admit it. I’m obsessed at the moment with this video with CT Fletcher, Kai Greene, and Dana Linn Bailey. (NOTE: this video is FULL of curse words, so if you’re a bit sensitive to such, do not push play). I’m obsessed for a reason. I’m thinking a lot about intensity. The Vast Distance Between “Doing” and Intensity I’ve been working on my…

  • Comfort is the Enemy

    … All of my work seems to be pointing to the same direction lately. People are struggling. They’re running out of time, running out of money, running out of motivation. If I’m to take everyone at their word, they’ve “tried everything” and “nothing works.” And yet, what I see, more and more, is that “good enough” or “you tried” or “why work so…
