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.
Years ago I discovered that what I read matters more than how much I read. In 2019, I realized that reading the same thing over and over on repeat takes my learning and thinking to another level. Turns out reruns are good for learning!
When I launched my first reinvention, I identified the skills I believed would help me succeed the most and invested in learning them. Today, I find myself needing new skills for my next reinvention.
I hate breaking a great morning routine that took me years to develop. However, last 14 months I’ve done nothing but reinvent my daily routines and rituals. Here’s what I learned.
Reflecting on 15 years of reinvention, I discovered that specific moments of my life required certain teachers. Here I share how I find them, learn from them, and who I’m learning from in the current chapter of my life.
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.
