When I first embarked on reinventing myself, I didn’t have many stories, insights, and lessons from the journey to reinvention. I often felt alone or like the crazy one that lost his way. However, that doesn’t have to be the case for you. Reinvention is challenging enough on its own, we don’t need to feel alone or like we have lost our way. This blog will help you learn from my experiences and those I have had the opportunity to learn from. This is the blog I wish I would have been able to follow and read when I first embarked on the journey to reinvention.
For several years, I have been intentionally slowing down time. It started as a way to avoid turning 40, but now it’s how I live my best life.
There were several moments in my life where a limiting belief would stop me from trying something new and possibly growing. The limiting belief didn’t always show up, but it was never too far.
Today, I realized that one thing I said in 2008 is what made all of my reinventions possible. Without it, I would not have made it very far along this crazy journey. Reinvention may not start with this, but it is made possible by it.
Today I took a midday field trip to Bray, Ireland to visit Catalyst Coffee. What I got was a masterclass on coffee and lessons in passion and purpose.
Fixed mindsets aren’t always that obvious. Recently, I enrolled in a new course and struggled to make progress. After some reflection, I discovered I was getting in my own way of learning.
Every morning since moving to a seaside town in Ireland, I take a walk by the seaside and ask myself one question that unlocks breakthrough thinking.
Good habits were always a nice-to-have for me. Then I realized they could lay the groundwork for exponential growth if I set them with greater intention and desired outcomes.
Mindfulness practices can take many forms. One of the most sacred rituals in my daily life is making pour over coffee every morning. Read why I do this every single day.
Employees are often asked to address burnout with mindfulness training, etc. However, the top causes of burnout are things only managers and leaders can address. The good news is that there are ways to correct employee burnout and drive wellbeing.
My speaking journey started with shaking knees, sweaty palms, and a dry throat. Thanks to a kind mentor, I learned one of the most important lessons about speaking in my career.
For 20 years I have been chasing the perfect morning routine. Then I realized that I shouldn’t be working for my morning routine. Instead my morning routine should be working for me.
It’s so easy to tolerate things we don’t like and simply move on. Sometimes we don’t even notice the things we tolerate. What are we missing out on when we tolerate? I did something about it and learned that we get the life we tolerate.
