Passion.

Day 20. So here it is. I'm going to be talking from the title, 'Passion Energizes Your Talent', a chapter from the book, 'Beyond Talent' by John Maxwell. To reiterate the bedrock of what I wanted to share throughout this entire series, I wanted to say again: We all have a Foundation. It is our... Continue Reading →

Sabotage.

Day 19. I apologize for my last set of 1000 words. That was written after 2 beers and a case of the munchies at 12 midnight. I have been sabotaging myself recently, and I'm not liking it. I mean, my daily schedule has me out of bed by 6am at the latest, and I've been... Continue Reading →

Dictate.

So let’s go ahead and try something new today I am on my way I’m in the car right now and I’m on my way over to meet a couple of friends of mine and the thing about it is I don’t have enough time to us really sit down and write my 1000 words... Continue Reading →

Preparation.

Day 17 Still. On Discipline: "Discipline is not punishment for the past but preparation for the future." - Andrew Farley "Discipline equals freedom." - Jocko Willink "There are two freedoms - the false, where a man is free to do what he likes; the true, where he is free to do what he ought." -...

Checkpoint.

Day 17. Been reading and listening a lot so far. I have Audible to thank for that. And of course, I thank Mr. Willink, Mr. Babin, Mr. Peterson, and Mr. Michler for their words of wisdom. I thought unload what I have in memory today just to see where I stand. These are some of... Continue Reading →

Clarify.

Day 16. To be an Ace is to be relied upon, as an Ace up someone's sleeve. We are ready to make adjustments and to take charge if necessary when other entities cannot be relied upon. To be an Ace is to recognize that we actually do not require the participation of anyone else, nor... Continue Reading →

Chase.

Day 15. Something I didn't tell you about last night, was we finished a liter of Double Black before I drove home, in the state between tipsy and drunk, where memory fades but function remains. And I will never attempt this again. It would have been okay if I was the only one in the... Continue Reading →

Reset.

Day 14. I was going to put the title 'Rock', but I figured I should just write about how this day is, as the title goes, a reset day. Reset, meaning I can eat whatever I want. Reset, meaning I rest today. Reset, meaning I don't necessarily have to write 1000 words today, nor do... Continue Reading →

Talent.

Day 13. My head isn't really hurting, but it feels like it may go there. Kind of like a cold coming on, probably also because I'm pretty tired. I made the mistake of running/walking out in the noon sun, and that just beats down on my brain and the rest of my body, leaving me... Continue Reading →

Belief.

Day 12. I talked about Foundation here, hence the featured image for this post. So this coming Sunday, we're to kick off a new set of messages centered on John Maxwell's book, Beyond Talent. We're going to take on a chapter each month, and though I wasn't necessarily moved by the book when I was... Continue Reading →
