Hi Team..

Hope you had an awesome weekend! 

This weekend for me was a pretty relaxed one... 18 holes of golf of Saturday, and, Sunday was a day of working out, biking, and then relaxing with the family!

During 2019, I told myself, keep the weekends to yourself.

Meaning, spend time on building your body, your mind, and your relationships as opposed to working, thinking about work, and burning your batteries..

With this simple tweak, I am very excited about Mondays..

Yup. You heard it.

Excited for Mondays.... (you read that right)..

I am a part of a very select group :) ...

You can be too!

Another attitude change that gets me really excited for my weeks, is realizing that I am not going to work, but rather doing work that really matters.

Bettering peoples lives...

Improving their vision...

Giving them a chance to feel support, accountability, and cared for in a way only a Coach can provide.

That is so much more than work or a job... but it is a MISSION.

I have a mission statement: To bring out the Champion in those I work with, helping them to reach their mission, vision, and goal in life- while at the same time keeping them inspired, motivated, and encouraged.

Pretty right?

But ultimately my LIFE MISSION is to help people.


No flash. No hype. No lights.

Just simple.

So to validate each day, I simply ask the question: Did you help anybody today?

YES = Living the Mission.

NO = Go Get It Tomorrow. 


Or, are you just going to work?

Is your day only about you? or others?

You see, in a time when I, ME, is always #1- it is important to ask yourself about your contribution to the whole.

That whole can be your Company, Team, those you lead, Your Family... but it has to be outside of you.

I always encourage those I Coach to find a mission greater than you.

Find a cause greater than you.

Do you know most people get depressed because they are only thinking about themselves?

Depression = Thinking about yourself too much.

Now, we all know that depression is flying high right now.. what is that telling us?

Where are people focused?

Exactly- On Them!

So, as we start this new week here in 2020... I want you to carve out a mission...

Bigger than you...

Then, post it with the # (hashtag) #biggerthanme ..

It will be fun.

Now, lets go get it today!

Let's GO!

Your Coach,
