Discovering the Power of Immersion: Unspoken Lessons from Being a Family

Today’s world leaves us little time for immersion. Our demands, responsibilities, and to-do items often push us to switch gears rapidly. As a primary means of communication, the presence of text messages supports this where we have little time for even a five-minute phone call. Preferring to text a few imperfect words & unique abbreviations while waiting for the same form of an answer...

Momentary Blindness Happens To All of Us

When we are certain that nothing can stop us from succeeding. Believing we are right and refusing to listen. Not hearing what someone is trying to tell us. Reacting emotionally to what has just been said. Wanting something uncontrollably. When we believe there is a reason, outside of ourselves, for every failure. Relying on our same habits to bring us a different tomorrow. When taking too many...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Just a short note to thank you for reading my blog posts. It means a lot to me that you continue to join me on my journey towards thinking about more deeply things that occur in our lives.

Needing more work, different perspectives, confirmation, and exploration. To lower the risk and improve the quality...

Our Reflexive Use of “I Understand”

“I understand” is a phrase we use often. Both with easy and difficult ideas. As I’ve aged, I notice that many use this phrase as an automatic response rather than a true indication of their true understanding of a topic or issue. Why is this reflexive answer so easy and automatic for us to use? We don’t want to be embarrassed by stating we don’t understand...

Unlocking the Power of Consistency: The Key to Achieving Constant Progress

Constant progress is not a concept we easily accept & believe. Our dreams demand instant outcomes with little effort or thought. Time is never a factor when our dreams capture us. Nor is any consideration for the work necessary to achieve them. But from where is constant progress born? Is it from discipline, focus, character, strength, courage, creativity, or 80-hour work weeks? I would argue...

Unlocking Better Clarity: Exploring Our Relationship with the “Non-Human Things” in Life

When we talk about relationships, we commonly refer to human interaction. Between two people, a family, a workgroup, or an organization. It sometimes focuses on identity. Other times levels of trust and depth of honesty or communication. Close or distant are terms used when describing them. The term “things” needs some explanation. It could be physical things like your house, car...
