Anybody Want to Join Me Reading Andy Andrews’ “Little Things?”

I just started reading Andy Andrews latest book, The Little Things and I was wondering if anyone would like to join me as we read it together and share thoughts back and forth. I am of the belief that he is one of the great thinkers of out time and this book is no exception. I'd love to share this journey with a couple people. Any takers?

Just How Hungry are You?

Have you ever sat down to a meal and said, ” I’m so hungry I could eat a _____?”  When you are that hungry, you often will eat whatever is available. If you are eating in a restaurant, you may order more than typical because you just want some food. Sometimes you will choose something that may not be exceptionally appealing but will satisfy the hunger you are experiencing.

When I am coaching clients, I often discover many are very hungry for whatever they can grab onto to help them…

Why You Need to Know Life Is Brief

When a university student asked Billy Graham what had been the biggest surprise in his life, he answered, “My biggest surprise in life is its brevity.”

James would agree. He wrote to those bragging about their big plans for the future, “Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes”…

Weight Loss: Are You Good or Bad Today?

We have to lose the belief that some foods are “good” and some are “bad.” You’re probably thinking I’m being hypocritical because I often write about the dangers of certain foods and ingredients in them. But hear what I am saying. In order to be able to lose weight in a truly healthy way and establish a…

Will you become the master you aspire to be?

Remember when you started driving and everything felt like it was happening so fast? Remember that first time you got on the highway and went 100 km an hour? It felt like so much was going on at once. You tried to watch the speed of the car and make sure that you didn’t run into any of the other…

The Power of a Decision

When you are double minded in your decisions, then you are not going to make the progress you want in your life or business.

Many times, we make a decision and before we even give the effort to see it through, we are already coming up with all sorts of alternatives. We start thinking about all the “what ifs.” We start thinking about why it will not work.

Instead, we should be focusing on the efforts to follow through on the decision we already made. We should be giving it our…

Want a successful business? Make sure you answer these 10 questions first.

The life of entrepreneurship can, from the outside, look like a bed of roses. Yes, today I started work at 9 a.m. and read for two hours, then wrote for two hours, and am now writing more at 2:30 p.m., sitting in the living room watching my kids play in the snow.

But that’s my highlight…

Essentialism: the Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown (Redbeard’s Reading List)

Welcome to the first entry in Redbeard's Reading List!

The first book I'd like to mention for this series is Essentialism by Greg McKeown. I just read it recently on the recommendation of my friend Paul Grau at Current Leadership Coaching.

Well by now a lot of you know, I am not a big fan of snow. I know God is a great artist and he has good reasons for snow, and it is very pretty but I much prefer when he works in his green palette. This year in this part of Pennsylvania, we had very little snow, as a matter of fact we had quite a few days in February where it was near 70 degrees. It was awesome, but now... this...

We are in blizzard conditions, the snow is falling horizontally and piling up in huge drifts. It's pretty…

How to Live a Healthy Life

Major studies on the effect of exercise on how long people live have been conducted in the United States and Finland. They have shown that an active and healthy lifestyle won't make you live much longer than someone who's sedentary.

So why exercise if you won't benefit by living longer than everyone else? Let me convince…

Tips to find that elusive Margin in our lives

We’ve had a winter here with rare amounts of snow in Chilliwack, BC. In an area that might see one snow day in a year, we’ve had three this week and at least three around Christmas time.

That’s meant I’ve pushed people out of the roads that aren’t plowed. I’ve shoveled for neighbours that…

A Fresh Approach to Easter

We're creeping up on Easter. Now if you're in any kind of ministry, one thing becomes readily apparent. Where for the rest of the year you can pick from virtually any subject matter when it comes to Christmas and Easter, most people expect that you will stick with those two most important of stories. The downside of this is they are stories that people have heard so often I fear they take it for granted. This provide a unique opportunity to be creative, to help them see the story with fresh…
