How to Get Better at Anything FASTER

Good morning! At my friend’s house for the Super Bowl party (did you see that AMAZING game??), I was eye-balling the peanut butter brownies. I was contemplating another one (even though I was still chewing on my first one). Fortunately, my friend (let’s call him Cody) distracted me. He asked me, “You mentioned having a business coach. You think that’s been helpful?” I told him …

Report to Your CWO ASAP

Good morning! About two weeks ago, I was at a nutrition conference with my wife, Sabrina. One speaker had created a new acronym – “CWO” (Chief Why Officer). The thing is – YOUR’E the CWO of your life. You see, when you focus on the “how” of your dreams, you may get overwhelmed. And when things aren’t going how you …

Good morning! Recently, my Dad brought over a box of books after he and my mom did a “home office makeover”, removing a lot of clutter. An older-looking book caught my eye.

I’m so excited about the opportunities that lie ahead, I’m actually overwhelmed. So I’m getting his help at a workshop. Here I am, a mentor needing to be mentored himself. See? Even …

A, B, C, or D?

Everything you do, you either: A) Love it B) Like it C) Do it out of necessity so you can do more things from A and B D) Hate it Imagine removing the “D” things from your life. Pretty liberating, right? Now you just need to ask yourself what things from C you need to do so that you can …

Take Urgent Inventory Now

Back in the day when I stocked shelves at a grocery store, we always had to take inventory at the end of the year. Things that took up space and didn’t do the store any good, we would send away. It was a very “tedious” process, but once we were done, we had the opportunity to start the new year …
