Moving to Me

me we reflected words

I’ve written and talked about the questions that led me to where I am today: Why do we do the (crazy) things we do? and How can we stop doing some of those things? The deeper I’ve explored these, the more I’ve realized I wasn’t looking for an answer for ‘we’. I was looking for…

VR is a Legal Drug

It took only 10 minutes of playing with Oculus for me to understand that our lives are going to be fundamentally changed by its existence. And probably sooner rather than later. I was visiting a friend who works for an animation company. (Insert plug: They do awesome work.) They had just bought a new super…

Redefining Successful Business Leadership

Life is short so I’ll just get to the point. When it comes to judging people in the business world, too often we’re focused on the wrong things. We give credit for misbehavior (so long as it doesn’t affect us) and undervalue the things that create great businesses. We need to collectively redefine our idea…

What Are You Doing?

I don’t always know what I’m doing. No, I’m not talking about trying something for the first time and figuring it out along the way. In that regard, I rarely know what I’m doing. I mean I’m learning to pay attention to what I’m doing – where I spend time and attention. And I don’t…

Last week I went to a personal trainer to have a mobility assessment.

Meditating at the Dentist in 5 Steps

I don’t floss as often as I should. And I try not to use the word ‘should’, but I think it’s appropriate in this context. My dentist and hygienist tell me to pay attention to flossing every time I’m there. Today was no different. I had my teeth cleaned. Don’t worry, things are looking good.…

Helping Others is a Trick

hand card deck trick

It’s a trick into helping us realize how useful we really are. How much we really have to offer the world. And it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy: We believe we’re of value because we’re helping, so we continue to do things of value. And then since we continue to do such helpful things, we believe we…

How to Maintain Your Meditation Practice While Traveling

Airplane Wing

This post was inspired by a friend/client whose name I won’t mention because I suspect it might embarrass her. But she asked a wonderful question so I wanted to be sure to answer completely and openly. She travels a lot for work — I suspect a couple times a month, for days at a time.…

busy people walking blurred

My meditation practice fell off the past two weeks. We had a big project with Golden Bristle and I’ve been working tirelessly on some new features for private members of Hero in a Half Shell – recording brand new audio and video. And, of course, everything had to get out on schedule. So needless to…
