Our Inspiration Comes From Odd Places

J Peterman

Thanks to those of you who took the time to respond to Friday’s article. I agree with you. From time to time you have to pick your head up long enough to “smell the roses.” I acknowledge too, that I am exactly where I am supposed to be at this moment in time. It’s all about awareness. Awareness to discern when it’s time to slow down to take a breather and when it’s time to “put...

In Love With The Struggle

In love with the struggle

The Wednesday to Thursday transition is always the most challenging of my week. A full day of work bleeds into an early evening weight workout. Then, it’s off to a seminar series I attend on Wednesday nights. By the time I get home, it’s almost 11pm. Thursday morning, my alarm clock still goes off at 4:30am. Sometimes I snooze til 5am. Or like yesterday, crawl into bed with Collin because he started jabbering, at 5:05....

There’s Still So Much To Learn

Tom Brady Tom House

You may have seen it last week, I posted to Facebook: “It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts.” That’s a quote from John Wooden. The ‘Wizard of Westwood.’ A man who “knew” a thing or two about winning. His UCLA basketball teams won 10 National Championships in a 12 year span — including seven in a row. That quote rang loud in my head on Friday night, as I lay in bed glued...

Fascinated with Humble Beginnings

Bezos

“World’s new richest man,” did you hear about it?    We all knew it would happen. Amazon.com founder, Jeff Bezos, recently passed Bill Gates for the title. A net worth of $105 billion.   Not bad for a guy who started by selling books out of his garage …   Come to think of it, Bezos even looks like ‘Warbucks.’   But what intrigues me most is not the monumental wealth, it’s the humble beginning. Amazon...

Affinity Is a Peculiar Thing

On The Court

You know, when the universe whispers, I try my best to perk up and listen. Sunday afternoon I was reminded of the importance of being on the court rather than in the stands. About 4:30pm, I pulled into the driveway. Both kids were out front with huge grins plastered on their faces. Well, this is quite interesting, I thought … Wonder what’s up? Then I saw the sign in the front yard and remembered. Oh Yes....

Whose Voice Is That Anyway?

Quick Note: These events [below] actually happened yesterday. In fact, I wrote this article yesterday. I just waited until this morning to publish because the voice told me that was the safest thing to do. [You know, that way I didn’t have to think of something else to write today.] Can you relate? Yes? If so, comment below and let me know what the voice tells you AND one thing that you are doing to drown...

It’s Pretty Easy To Spot A Unicorn

Magnetic Attraction

Well … I think we nailed it. I’m confident we’ve identified the right person to help build out the blueprint for both Voices of Impact and Three Pillars. Friday’s interviews went about as expected … minus the fact that one interviewee chose not to show up. Crazy right? Why would someone who invested almost a month into the application process stall out so close to the finish line? I don’t get it. Then again, this whole experience...
