I looked down at the iCal icon on my MacBook and saw the number 1 staring at me. Yep, we’re at Day One of 2012. It’s time for a lot of resolutions. Change this. Do this. Be this. All of these ideas and all of these pursuits have merit. We should strive to be better. […]
Since my speaking schedule has slowed down for the holidays, I’m spending most of December in California visiting family, friends, and my girlfriend (who relocated to San Diego in June). I recognized that while I did better this year, my fall fitness was once again lacking–it remains tough to do with the hotel gym schedule […]
So my friend Derek posted this great link encouraging people to make 11/11/11 Nigel Tufnel Day.

Yes! You clicked on this link, so you’re obviously a bit curious. That’s good. We need to be curious as people, and we need to constantly enrich our mind. This track will help you do that. By giving just a few hours each week–no more than 10-20 minutes a day, you’ll really grow with this […]
Yep, I’ve been hyping it for the past few days. I hope you’ll join me. Here is the announcement. Want to join me? Check out the details here.
So I’m in the middle of my spring speaking season, and I love it. The students are awesome and each conference or campus brings something different to the table. I really privileged in my line of work that most people share with me what they appreciated about my day at work. Students often share what […]
Remember two weeks ago? You were at school, or in your office, or checking your phone, and someone texted you or posted on your wall about this horrible YouTube video that you just had to see? The lyrics were awful, there was a strange rap sequence, and no one could figure out why it even […]
