People think revolution needs to involve loud provocations, fists in the air, and bloodshed. But if you think true love looks like Romeo and Juliet, you’ll overlook a great relationship that grows slowly. If you think your life’s purpose needs to hit you like a lightning bolt, you’ll overlook the little day-to-day things that fascinate you. If you think revolution needs to feel like war, you’ll...

Waiting for Purpose
Of all the things that influence how much you love your job, from compensation, and your manager, to your commute, benefits package, or seating arrangement, I believe there is one thing that supersedes them all. The number one factor influencing how much you love your job is whether or not you have purpose. When you have a monotonous job, it’s hard to see the big picture. Reminding...

It’s O.K. to Change Your Course →
This is a great article that reminds you that it’s ok to change. I want to let you in on a little secret… It’s O.K. to change your plans. Turn about face. Pivot. Take a 180. We live in a world which punishes those who take actions to correct a mistake or a course. Wishy-washy, we call them. Flip-floppers. Unstable. Irresponsible. Lazy. Whimsical. A whole host of terms with negative...

What Feels Good vs. What Feels Right
Sometimes the hardest choices are those we have to make between what feels good, and what feels right. Often, what feels good has the most immediate gratification. It’s the easy choice. It keeps us feeling comfortable. It’s taking the well-trodden path we’ve traveled so many times in the past. It’s the choice of habit, the play-it-safe route. Doing what feels right,...

Small and Simple Things - #Trust30
I’m currently reading The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell. Today, I read a chapter that had a huge personal impact on me. The chapter was about the Broken Window Effect. Essentially, the Broken Window Effect demonstrates that very small things often trigger larger, more significant things. For example, the crime rate on subway trains in NYC in the 1980’s was astronomical. There were thousands of...
Taking My Own Medicine - #Trust30
I figure the best way to take advantage of the #Trust30 pledge (which is supposed to help me look within, and trust myself) is to start taking my own medicine. Living what I preach is possibly the thing I struggle with the most. I’m very good at helping other people realize that they need to focus on the positive and not the negative. I live for those long talks in the night when I can...
