Big project? Celebrate the milestones

2013 started with the best of intentions. My goal is to record 300 songs before the year ends, and I'm well over 10% of the way there. And yet... It feels like this hugely daunting task right now. Like I'll never make it. I know I'm in the thick of it. I know the year's […]

You can't be whatever you want to be

Over the last few months, I've been digging into what I really enjoy: music (over 30 songs are in the can now!), performing (check my upcoming gigs here), and learning about people. Specifically, I've been swimming through books like these about finding and living your true purpose. Ultimately, it all comes down to two things: connecting to […]

The Daily Grind of Creating Awesome

January's over, and I'm about 5% of the way toward my BHAG of recording 300 songs in 2013. That's 21 songs toward my ultimate goal of 300. Only 279 to go! Anyone else would say "Holy crap! you've recorded that many songs!?! That's Awesome!" Me? I have to remind myself to not be all "meh" […]

[Editor's note: when we migrated to the new site, a lot of great posts got lost. Slowly, I'll be digging them out, updating them, and reviving them for your inspiration.

The Convo: Excellence, Prayer, and Naysayers

Got big dreams? Hold fast to them, and don't be afraid to pray for excellence. Many times, visionary creatives have lofty goals and ambitions, but we're met with staunch criticism when we share them. This forces us to either stop sharing, or aim lower. Don't be that person. Instead, when things are getting to you, […]

Your Next 30 Hours

I was working with a client/colleague/friend* recently, celebrating her recent launch of a free worksheet she created for an opt-in on her website. She made mention that she'd gotten more response from her audience with that one freebie than she had from several other paid launches she did this past year. And I don't mean […]

The Hero In All Of Us

Two years ago, I put together this video mashup of two scenes from Spider Man 2. In it, you hear Aunt May talking about how there's a hero in each one of us. I thought it was a perfectly inspiring underscore to Spidey's big train rescue scene. This video's been watched over 175,000 times to […]
