My conscious was bothering me


You can reach a point in life that even the smallest miscommunication bothers you.

Purchased a new MacBook four days ago, and yesterday i took it back, unopened.

Bought it utilizing the back-to-school tax free incentive.

Went to purchase our third 11-inch MacBook Air, this one for Chapin as he enters High School.

Bought a 12-inch MacBook (not an “Air”) that is smaller, lighter, and has a bigger screen.

Since it’s a new Apple product, the temptation to own it tugged on my heart.

So i took it back explaining that it won’t be going to our Son and i’d like to pay the tax that we saved under the back-to-school premise.

Apple said either way it was legit and not to worry about it.

There is something about a 100% clear conscience that is priceless.

Being Brave

It scared you because you felt safe

Disney Conference Speakers
Have passed through here a million times.


Dear self, this is genius. The way you step up. Your intentions. The way you structure your classes. Your analogies. Your metaphors. Your questions. Your vision.

And what did you get paid?

Compared to a compelling speaker with a great platform, peanuts. Literally nothing compared to what you get paid now.

(Don’t get yourself wrong, you wouldn’t trade the past for anything.)

Genius has boldness. (Yes, this is the reverse of Boldness has genius.)

Congratulations on breaking the mold.

And congratulations for doing what you said you were gonna do.

No really

Is it time to fire the person in charge?

A run from home to DU and back.


Who’s in charge?

Great leaders confront issues, not individuals. Good leaders beat around the bush.

If you can not have hard conversations with yourself, you’re really going to struggle with holding yourself accountable for balance, wellness, and thriving.

As we get older, these become exponentially more valuable.

Imagine who you become striving to be the most admired in all the world

Orlando Based Professional Speaker jeff noel


(photo: He worked for 30 years at a Company striving to be the most admired company in the world… living above reproach is the vision.)

When asked intelligent, world-class questions, we should never become:

  • intimidated
  • embarrassed
  • angered

Our answer may elicit one of those emotional responses above, but the question never should.



Any organization charging a premium price for the information they spout as Gospel, should have answers above reproach to the toughest, most intimate questions.

If they don’t… well… you decide.

And why wouldn’t they have an answer above reproach?

Life Transition (Dec 2014)

Do we care enough to lead like this?

Trail head closed


(photo: yesterday, when the going gets tough…)

When it comes to business, leadership, and profits, could we behave in such a manner:

Live your live so that if someone said anything bad about you, no one would believe it.

Is this possible?

Is it desirable?

Would it transform everything in our life?

Do we care enough?
