Silence

Nothing The silence is not heart breaking. You can only give so much “go get um tiger!” until you realize you also need to go get um. The posts that spill on to Lead Utah are from the heart. But, they are generalized, they apply to any situation and none at the same time. As…

Do Hard Things To Have a Better Life

What makes the hard things in life hard? inability lack of skill unclear vision fear uncertainty pressure to preform to standard unreal expectations lack of understanding doomsday mindset lack of options lack of passion lack of mental discipline That is a decent enough list. The point is most of the things that make  a task…

A Time For Rest

There is only so much the body can handle. It is that simple. You can only lift so much weight. You can only run so far. You can only go so long without sleep. You can only eat so much food. To be human is to be limited. So, sleep, eat, and get out of…

Through

Somethings go smoothly in life. The path is made straight and what you need to learn or do is obvious. Those ways are man made. They are the paths that we set up and even then it isn’t smooth for everyone. No, life has lessons, life gives those through experience and most of the time…

Life On The Wall

There are things we want to stop doing. There are things we want to start doing. There are things. Life presents us options. It gives us a chance to make decisions, to be responsible, to make it our own. The trouble is life will also let you sit on the wall. The wall is a…

Change Over Time

There is something about change that makes us better. It moves us from a place of stagnation to momentum. Even if we are headed on a downward slope we can use it to go up the next incline. People try to stay the same, they try to “stay true” to who they were, and neglect…

It Is Only Now

There is this special time we wait for to get something done. It is the perfect time, the uninterrupted time, or the when I get a moment time. This special time rarely happens on purpose. The perfect time happens by accident. You decide to put your resume in with a company that has no jobs…

Be Consumed

We live in a consumer world. We are continually told, persuaded, and even tricked into buying things, experiences, and hopes. Human attention is being sold to businesses. We are a product for everything we get to use for free. The radio, television, all things free on the internet, and the list goes on. You see…

Take Your Time

What do you want to do? Life Work Play Travel Fitness Relationships Those are broad categories that you get to decide on. This is your life. I understand that the immediate problems want you to rush the answer, but don’t. What you are going to do for work matters, what you are going to do…

Creativity and Innovation

Walt Disney invented a new way to  make animated movies. The team at Pixar invented render man to make animated movies. I could go on, but that would require research and I am trying to make a quick point. You may have a crazy idea like John F. Kennedy to get a man on the…

Think About Others First

There is a mindset trap that we get caught in. It is one thinking to succeed that we have to look out for number one. It is the selfish desire to make sure we are at the top of every transaction, action, or negotiation. We look for the single angle of what is in it…

Don’t Do It The Boring Way

There are ways you can do things, they are “known to work” they are the standard practice and they will get you no where. If you want to stand out then fitting in isn’t going to work. Here is the thing, you don’t have to be a contrarian to standout.  You don’t have to go…
