One of the most inspiring Ted Talk’s I’ve ever seen. Being insatiably curious is the key to living a passionate life… and it is our task. We know it will be difficult.


Do things with passion, or not at all. Life’s to short to let it get boring.

My Secrets of Success

A little something that I whipped up for my “Secrets of Success” presentation at work today.  You may not get the full effect without the words, but the quotes are good… I think.

What it all boils down to is loving what you do, loving who you do it with, and being fiercely curious and passionate about life.

RainI’ve spent thousands of hours making myself irreplaceable. I bust my ass to create and excel in my art. I’m constantly learning, adapting and changing to make myself the best I can be. I read, I try to absorb and learn from those who have more experience and knowledge, and I apply the things I learn. I have a knack for doing things that most people can’t… in my professional life.

The reason I’ve put such an enormous focus on being irreplaceable when it comes to work (I think) is because I feel so replaceable in other aspects of my life. I compensate with my success at work for what I lack in other areas… particularly love.

I watch for any opportunity in my life to be passionate. I’ve been passionate (borderline fanatical) about antique furniture, internet marketing, Social Media, and customer service. I’ve been passionate about dancing, and music (both playing and listening). I’ve been passionate about politics, inspiring friends to live their dreams, and my religion.

If I’m not passionate, I’m not happy.

Maybe that’s where I go wrong. Maybe I’m too passionate. Maybe it’s not possible for me to find someone who is as passionate and willing to invest in me as I would invest in them…

Jack Johnson sings, “Where’d all the good people go?” I say, “Where’d all the passionate people go?” Or have they always been this rare?


Anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.
