Year of Push 3.4 Milkshakes & 10 Point Turns

Tags:

Remember back in drivers ed when you were taught the 3-point turn? You needed this skill so you could make a complete direction change in as few moves as possible. I have to ask, who picked the number 3? Is that just an average? Sometimes you can make a u-turn, sometimes it's a 10-point turn and 3 seemed like a reasonable average? #justcurious #why3 I mean, who here hasn't made ...Read More

I would bet you have someone you admire. Maybe you admire their discipline, work ethic or attitude. I have people like that, too. And if you're like me, you might wish you were more "like them".

Are you settling for "good enough" or not making further progress because you are "better than before"? This is something I see all the time when people make progress.

You cannot sustain a battle against yourself. I want you to joyfully pursue a life you love instead of trying ...Read More
