All my life I have tried to make sure I was heading in the right direction. From a young age I knew where I wanted to go and worked hard to achieve my goals. Now, I’ve raised four kids, competed in a ton of athletic competitions, and run a number of businesses. I also know that the world is filled with things that I can do or learn to make my life better.

Have you ever wished you had more time to read and uncover information that matters? Have you ever wanted to know more about a topic that could be helpful to you, your coworkers, kids, and friends?

My solution to this problem was to read and share. I have always been an obsessive reader of just about everything. Whenever I uncover interesting articles I share them with friends and family, always adding my own comments to make them personal. Most of these topics focus on how to live a better life – with my family, coworkers, and friends.

I have decided to share them with you. I call them LIFEies; weekly emails full of motivation, lessons, and simple facts of life. A LIFEies could contain a thought, an idea, a lesson, action item, or simply an interesting topic that any of us could benefit from learning about.

If you would like to be a part of the LIFEies weekly email, please sign up on the right. If you know someone who might enjoy this kind of reading, please share.

Hope you enjoy!

Last week, I put together a report on the amount of sleep you should be getting each night (read that LIFEies here). This week, I have more proof. Below is a graphic that shows all the effects of sleep deprivat... Read More
  • I have been advocating for more sleep in my own life and on LIFEies for some time.  I put together a special report on the latest thinking about sleep. First—We don’t necessarily need more than 7-8 hours a night.  Watch the video below on the latest study regarding length. Second—Getting up with the sun is not necessary.  The last remaining hunter-gatherers get up at the coldest poi... Read More
  • I have to be honest, I almost didn't send this LIFEies out. Some of the ways to change your life below are not my style or anything I would advocate.  Then I thought, I don’t have all the answers. Maybe a reader would make an unorthodox change that I would not and have success. However, I still get to share my summary of the best ways to change (read on for the others): --Make mundane cha...

  • Almost a year ago, my mom passed away after a lengthy battle with Parkinson's. I wrote a LIFEies Tribute to her after her passing (click here to read).  I realized that I didn’t want to wait until my Dad passed to honor him, so here is a living tribute to my 83-year-old father. So this Thanksgiving week, I say thank you to my father and try to define what love means to me and him. Wha... Read More
  • I started writing LIFEies for my four kids.  They are now all out of the house, but am I stopping?   No way.  The coaching never ends.  I am still being coached, by Dan Sullivan and the Strategic Coach, and Mike Lipsey for our team. I also have numerous mentors.  Let’s just get this out one more time:  The coaching never ends. Below is an article from the WSJ about Rafa Nadal and his C... Read More
