Finding Your Passion

Finding Your Passion

Much is said about finding your passion these days. Most of what is said though, leaves me a bit lost. So what is the real process of finding your passion in life? Again, the advice becomes a bit unrealistic. It asks you to take personality tests and find out what you enjoy reading about and [...]

Constructive Criticism That Works

Constructive criticism is a very valuable part of growth that is so often ignored. Ignored because it is often difficult. But it needn’t be as difficult as we make it. Too often we make the art of interpersonal communication and relationships about strategy. But strategies often miss the reality. That is not to say that [...]

Everybody Has a Gift to Offer

Everybody has a gift to offer this world

Everybody has a gift to offer this world. But if you are like me, it is much harder to see the value you bring to the table yourself than it is to see what others bring. I was reminded of that this last week again. You see, some of my friends keep thinking that I [...]

Get Authentic with Your Dreams

So many people dream big dreams. Dreaming big is easy. And many people give up dreaming. That is easy too. What is hard is dreaming visionary, authentic dreams.

Living the Best Life beats the Dream Life

Living the best life is far more realistic than living the dream life. The best life takes into consideration your real life situations and redeems them and builds on those impossibilities. My dream life would be Justin Bieber’s life. A million fans, and a ton of money. Lots of fame. Okay, not sure I would [...]

Put Your Head Down and Power Through

Sometimes we just need to put our heads down and power through. It is something that the intentional life design community often doesn’t talk about. But we would be foolish to believe that living intentionally would be a breeze all the the time. In fact, sometimes the best life is the harder path. The sense [...]
