Will work for travel

Will work for travel

Not every trip is a vacation. 

When you've made the decision to travel more so you can experience more, part of that life involves your career. 

So you have to know how to live and experience life between the obligations.

Q: How do you deal with getting rid of stuff?

Q: How do you deal with getting rid of stuff?

Downsizing can be kind of rough on you. How do you decide what to get rid of? And when you decide, how do you go through with it?

What I did when you weren't looking - Week of 02/28/16

What I did when you weren't looking - Week of 02/28/16

There are going to be weeks that are weak.

You'll get less done. 

You'll miss all the targets.

You'll eat that whole pie in one sitting.

These weeks happen. And when they do, you have to decide they're part of the story of you, too. Don't worry about a bad week. Look at it and decide what you can lean for the next week.

Racism isn't a pop quiz

Racism isn't a pop quiz

If the plan is to learn from history and grow, then you have to concentrate on what worked, not what didn't. 

You can't move forward when you're under the weight of past hatred and cruelty and evil. 

If you're going to build something out of the ashes, you have to put out the fire.

Author typecasting

Author typecasting

There's a sort of "rule of thumb" when it comes to being an author. It's almost akin to "dance with the one who brung ya." But it goes deeper than that.

Authors can be typecast, just like actors. 

The trouble is, some of us don't want to play the same role forever.

Getting Stuff Done Like a Wordslinger

Getting Stuff Done Like a Wordslinger

How to get stuff done like a Wordslinger.

I get asked about this all the time, and the truth is I don't have a step-by-step process. What I do have is a series of rules—little habits I keep that let me get three podcasts podcast while writing a daily journal, a daily blog, and a whole bunch of books.

SPOILER: I like to use "buckets." Put everything on a task list, and add a couple of tasks to each day, checking them off of your list as you go.

What to look for when you've found everything you were looking for

What to look for when you've found everything you were looking for

When you're used to keeping your eyes peeled for specific things, it can be kind of a shock to realize you've outgrown the need for those things, when you weren't paying attention. 

So what are you looking for, when you're still out scouring the world? Probably something you never even realized you needed.

Junk Driving

Junk Driving

Sometimes you outgrow a tradition, but that doesn't mean the tradition has outgrown you. 

Every now and then you have to pull on your old clothes, and for a little bit you'll be the person you used to be, so that you can connect with the people who matter to you. 

That's not a bad thing. It's ok to remember. It's ok to look back and even GO back every now and then.

What I did when you weren't looking - Week of 21 February 2016

What I did when you weren't looking - Week of 21 February 2016

You get all sorts of news during any given week, and it can be  good, bad, or some freakish Frankenstein hybrid of both. It's what you do with it all that makes you who you are.

Some of us choose to pretend most of it happened differently, and involved dinosaurs and Vikings and space ships. 

We're kind of awesome.

What Wild Peach taught me

What Wild Peach taught me

Experience is the great teacher, but we sometimes make lousy students.

Perspective can change your life—but only the new ones. The old ones are just the clothes you wore in. A new perspective might not fit well when you first try it on, but give it time. You'll break in for it.

Let's look at the world a bit differently and see who we become.

Time surfing - How I get it all done (sometimes)

Time surfing - How I get it all done (sometimes)

I don't mange time. I kind of just surf it. 

I can't keep routines from being interrupted. I can't keep life from intruding on my plans. I can't prevent the hiccups that happen when I thought I had my day all mapped out.

But I can keep my priorities in mind. I can keep a list of tasks. I can look for spaces in time to do what needs doing.

Disruption

Disruption

You'll never get anywhere new by taking the same paths you take every day. You already know how to get to work, get to school, get to church, get home. 

How do you get to Mars? How do you get to a Fortune 100 business? How do you get to a world free of disease?

The only way to get there is disruption. Embrace disruption. Be disruptive.

The antidote to fear

The antidote to fear

I just learned that fear is a sign that you're not loving perfectly. And at first, that makes it seem like fear is inevitable. 

But the truth is, that's hopeful. Because it means that the antidote to fear is to do something you love.

Let's go dent the universe

Let's go dent the universe

No matter what kind of positive impact you have on the world, there will always be someone who thinks you're a selfish jerk. And maybe you are!

So what?

Go make a dent in the universe anyway. Take up your hammer and start making some noise. Drown them out with the wonders you'll create.

Sure, let's talk about money

Sure, let's talk about money

What do you feel when you talk about money?

I feel terrified. Anxious. Sick to my stomach.

And it seems a lot like God is trying to kick me in the butt and move me past that, because lately talking about money has been unavoidable. So when you can't beat 'em, or avoid them while you cringe and cower at a back table in Starbucks, you might as well join 'em. So sure. Let's talk about money.

If you eat nothing is but carrots your skin will turn orange. And the same thing happens when you read, watch, listen to, and experience the same stuff, over and over. Want to be inspired? Want to grow? Want to become wise and unbeatable in everything you do? Branch out and find new experiences, as often as you can.

Why we create

Why we create

Why we create— 

Because it puts something new in the world. 

Because it pushes back against the entropy of the universe.  

Because it remembers where we come from, and those we knew, while inviting new expereiences and new people into our lives.
