There are only a few months left in the year and I wanted to take the time to remind myself of my current goals in addition to adding new ones. You’ll notice there are some recurring themes.

This is more of a brain dump than a formalized list. It’s always great to jot down your thoughts. It’s therapeutic. Give it a shot.

  1. Quit smoking
  2. Limit alcohol to Friday & Saturday
  3. Exercise daily
  4. Drink more water
  5. Read several books (at least one per month)
  6. Start writing again

Thought process that transcends greatness is what makes mastery not only so much better but also so much more exciting than excellence.

I’ve come to the conclusion that mastery is greater than excellence. Mastery meaning “comprehensive knowledge or skill in a subject or accomplishment” or “control or superiority over something” is far better than “the quality of being outstanding or extremely good”. It’s important to distinguish the two. Many people are simply good (or extremely good) at things all their lives. …


SEO was king. Those days are in the past…

Once upon a time in search engine land SEO rose to prominence. SEO was king. Those days are in the past and we can safely say that social media has completely taken over.

My business partner Dustin and I have been on a mission to spread the word about our latest start-up Smaller Than 500, Inc. After some failed PPC marketing attempts we thought “let’s write a blog and do some content marketing!” Sure…


The end of innovation from Apple

I was holding on to a glimmer of hope. Maybe today, September 10th, Apple would finally announce something new and exciting! Nope, that didn't happen. I’m disappointed in Apple today.

Here’s why. Since Steve Jobs has left the company seems that innovation has left with him. Tim Cook, although he may be a great guy, just is not that innovative leader that made Apple great. Today Apple announced new iPhone models. The only major differences between current models and new models are new color options. …


No ceilings

I am a very firm believer in that if you do not first envision yourself as great, you will most likely not achieve greatness.

It all starts with a vision. With your imagination you create your own rules, whether you realize it or not. You can transfer those rules you’ve imagined into reality.

Steve Jobs once said that, “Life can be much broader, once you discover one simple fact, and that is that everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it…


My first post on Medium

This is my very first post on Medium, yay! I plan on leveraging this platform for my personal blog. In the past I have used self hosted options such as WordPress. I love the idea of using a 3rd party service such as Medium to take the stress out of managing my own hosting so I can just focus on my content and thoughts.

This is a big win for you, the reader! I look forward to sharing my ideas, thoughts and opinions with you.

Stay tuned!…
