Thinking Small | Victory By A Thousand Steps

We all know the saying, “death by a thousand cuts” – the idea that it’s not the big things in life that destroy us but the accumulation of many poor decisions all added together. The alternative to our demise is our victory and we rarely discuss it. If we die by a thousand cuts how can we live and become victorious? I believe it’s by taking a thousand faithful steps in the right direction, no matter how seemingly small. Actually, the smaller the step of faith in action, the better. If you...


Go All In | Why Mediocrity Is Costing You Far More Energy

Your life is meant to be lived ALL IN. It takes more energy to live a below average or even a mediocre life than it does to live a life full of incredible achievements. The person who lives a below average life chooses to constantly justify to others and themselves why they have been treated unfairly. They become the victim. The person who lives an average life settles for an OK career, an OK partner, OK friends and has experienced year after year of OK memories and maybe, if they're...


Do The Big Thing First | #NOVELiDEA 7

You know that one big thing you need to get done that you are in fact getting absolutely nowhere on? Today's Novel idea is about putting that thing in it's place and winning the day. Part of winning the day is to begin the day with that one big scary task. I had a friend just this week share how much he was struggling to get through this big project he's been slaving over. After a brief bit of a conversation, I realised a few critical errors my buddy was making. One, he was responding to...


Embrace what's Embarrassing | #NOVELiDEA 6

Embrace what's Embarrassing. Today's #NOVELiDEA comes from a funny experience I had at a retirement home this weekend. It cost me ten minutes of my life... And no, I'm not taking about the old lady who thought I was her long lost son (that really did happen), I'm talking about a door that a group of strangers THOUGHT was stuck shut. After standing their for 10 minutes, Someone came up and simply slid the electronic door we all assumed was locked wide open. The lesson I was reminded of...


You In 10 Years | #NOVELiDEA 5 | Identify and Become Your Best Future Self

Exercise: Close your eyes and envision who you want to become over the next 10 years... Now ask yourself this following questions as you re-read each above question again... "What is holding me back from accomplishing this today, this month or this year?" "What is one thing I can do to move the needle toward my ideal outcome and my best future self?" "Who is one person I know that embodies this trait already and how could I learn it from them?" Change doesn't happen over 10 years, it...


Top Performance & Internal Control | #NOVELiDEA 4

Performing at our very best is a challenging science. There are all these little things in our lives that dictate our emotions unless we can learn to become aware of them and take that control back. Recently it occurred to me, while in an argument with my girlfriend, that I was tense because of no other reason than I was calorie deprived. Having skipped lunch to get work done and pressing on past the point of dinner, I had now picked...

Perspective - #NOVELiDEA #2

Perspective. Hard to get, harder to keep. You need to surround yourself with people who are invested in your success. People who have the ability to truly see you for who you are and relentlessly remind you of what you're made of. The problem is, we live to close to ourselves. Our focus gets granular and we lose sight of our purpose, mission, even our own identities. Today's episode is about stepping back and inviting others in and removing us, ourselves, me, and I from the equation, in...


Take Action - #NOVELiDEA #1

This is the first time I've ever done this. I'm committing to something with absolutely no idea how it could turn out and it relies on me showing creating content every single day. *Full 5 Minute YouTube Video: You know those ideas you get where you've always wanted to act on it but just haven't known where to begin? That's what this is for me... Except I'm simply choosing to take action with NO expectations except to get off my chest this frustration that I...
