lone tree with mountain in distance
Such a beautiful tree. Basking in early Autumn sun. Heaven’s Peak, as grand as it is, is almost invisible. The tree takes our focus off of what appears inconsequential in the distance – perhaps only a dark sky.

You cannot build a reputation based on what you’re gonna do.

Grand intentions, with inadequate action, is what turns people sour on life: belief, faith, commitment, and purpose.


Because intent is not action.


Like you mean it.

And i know you mean it.


You wouldn’t be here if you didn’t.

Just add action

behaviors trump intentions
Does this inspire or overwhelm you?

Just add action.

Learn like you mean it, but at some point you have to put more time into action than learning.

Learning can be a great excuse-justifier.

Unless someone presses you to see this in yourself (like i did with myself years ago), you never will.

It’s a vicious cycle of wanting to learn just a little more before you take your big risk.

But alas, risks may not work and you may lose your reputation, you may look like a fool, or you may cause a serious setback for your organization (and/or yourself).

As a bonus, all action becomes a higher-level learning curriculum.

Indecision May Or May Not Be

The Ledge - 103 Floors Up
The Ledge - 103 Floors Up

“Indecision may or may not be my problem.”Jimmy Buffett

Ain’t it da truth?  This is one of the many reasons I’ve been challenged to do a better job at living out my dreams.

Please don’t get me wrong, most people have a pretty good batting average – we do many of the things we say we’re going to do.

We also, because we’re human, don’t do a lot of the things we say we’re going to do.

The antidote?

Find your higher purpose.

And, be prepared to work harder than you ever have in your life.
