My dumbass got an MBA doing these three things

2018-10-20T01:20:08+00:00

I don't know about you but sometimes life feels like a list of endless To-Do's. The thought of having to complete all these tasks can feel overwhelming. It's a never-ending feeling. It doesn't surprise me that 37% of Americans (~120million) suffer from anxiety. And that's just the ones who admit to it. So the question is, "how can we have our cake and eat it too? In other words, how can we learn how to manage all these tasks, while learning how to enjoy it in the process? Here's what has helped me... Dichotomy of Control This is a fancy term [...]

Why I choose to dress like a scrub 99% of the time

2018-09-19T17:41:08+00:00

I dress like a scrub 99% of the time. That's not an exaggeration. I wouldn't have it any other way. What most people don't know about me is that I choose to dress this way for three specific reasons. Comfort Equals Confidence It's almost guaranteed if you see me on the street running errands, out at dinner, or come to visit me at my house I'm wearing a cotton blend work t-shirt, athletic shorts, black high socks, and Reebok shoes that are ALWAYS un-tied. I joke with my wife that I couldn't ever go back to Corporate America and have to [...]

In what way does the social media affect your life ?

2018-07-18T15:53:11+00:00

One of the things I understood about social media is that its a TOOL. Like any tool, for instance, the hammer, it can be used to drive a nail into a wall (good) or drive someone head into the concrete (bad). Those that decry the evils of social media don’t know how to use the tool properly. Likewise, there are people that let social media run their lives. That’s also a misuse of the tool. Personally This is the hardest to balance. At times I over consume social media where I feel it has a negative impact on my life. Such [...]

The Quickest Way To Lose My Trust

2018-04-06T16:19:27+00:00

"Keeping your word is one of the smallest yet impactful things you can do to build trust in any relationship." My wife was really excited for a handyman to come to our house yesterday to fix a few things. He had excellent reviews on Thumbtack, and his quote for the job was pretty affordable. He said he could fix the issue faster than we thought it would take to fix. He was supposed to be at my house at 8:30 am. He never showed up. I called him 10 minutes later. He never answered or called me back. By noon we fired [...]

They Myth of Perfection and How I Treat Social Media

2018-03-12T16:11:10+00:00

"No one is perfect...that's why pencils have erasers." Many of the emails I send don't have perfect grammar. There are workouts that I program for my gym that are less than ideal. And I don't always say the right thing at the right time. And I'm okay with that. If I waited for everything to be perfect, I would get nothing done. Perfection is an illusion that is perpetuated by Facebook and Instagram. Don't get me wrong I heart social media platforms, but I also take them with a grain of salt. Instead, I view social media as a highlight reel [...]

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication

2018-03-07T17:50:11+00:00

"Don't make the process harder than it is" It was Leonardo Da Vinci who said that "simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." From my own experience, he was right.  Everything we want to achieve is both simpler than we can imagine and more complicated that we can conceive.  Creating something from nothing sounds complicated but the process is quite simple. Whether it's buying a new house or running your first marathon (which I did once, and will never do again!), the process of achieving anything in life comes down to these four steps: 1. Decide what you want. 2. Write it down. 3. Make a [...]

The Only Constant In Life Is Change

2018-03-01T18:03:45+00:00

I've never told anyone this. When I was about 11 years old, I developed a compulsive disorder. Every night before bed, while lying on my back, I would fan my hand across my pillow at least one hundred times. I believed that the more times I fanned my hand across my pillow the more days God would give me to live. Days turned into years, and I continued to do this believing I had banked enough swipes to keep me alive for a long time. This was a great moment in my life that I didn't want to change and I [...]

Do Roses Have Thorns Or Do Thorns Have Roses?

2018-02-12T16:35:24+00:00

"I've learned that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different." There's a video going viral on the internet of a man signing the national anthem at a basketball game while he simultaneously paints at center court  As he continues to sign almost flawlessly, he proceeds to paint a picture of something unbeknown to the audience. Although it seems like he knows what he's attempting to capture, to the naked eye it just looks like a bunch of random brush strokes. At the end of the song, he finishes the line with "home of the [...]

Do I regret getting tattoos when I was younger?

2018-02-10T13:11:00+00:00

"Sooner or later we've all have to confront our choices" Last Thursday I spent 6 hours in total driving to Miami, getting my tattoos lasered off, and driving back home. I've been doing this every couple months for over a year. I got my first tattoo at 16 years old. My best friend and I thought it would be cool to get a tattoo on our backs to show off our toughness during the wrestling season. We both decided to get it in an area of our back that would be visible when we wore our singlets. Years later when I [...]

Sometimes We Make Life Harder Than It Has To Be

2018-01-30T19:55:17+00:00

"Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated." It was 2003, I was 18 years old, and I had just dropped out of college. I was too embarrassed to come back home so I decided I would move to Texas and live with my uncle who I had only met once. After working for a few months on the graveyard shift at Walmart, I had saved enough money to start looking at used cars.One afternoon, my uncle came home and told me a friend was selling a 1990 Toyota Corolla and asked if I wanted to see it. [...]
