How to Meditate

In a recent podcast I was asked a bit about how I started my mornings. I mentioned that I meditate every morning for a few minutes to start my day calm and set my goals or intentions. In the interview I didn't get to fully explain, and I've had a few people ask me about it since, so I wanted to create a post on how to meditate if you're interested. This is in no way the 100% fool proof way to meditate, it's just how I do it after trying many different methods. Maybe it will help you as [...]

Freedom, is a State of Mind

In life we usually find ourselves 'trapped' in things we feel are out of our control. A job you hate. A bad relationship. A failing business. A failing partnership. Not having enough money. Poor health. Etc, etc. This trapped feeling, brings a desire for freedom. We feel like we don't have a choice. But what is freedom REALLY? To me, freedom is a choice, a state of mind. This may bold, but unless you're trapped in a box, tied down, or being oppressed in some way. You are free to change whatever situation you're in right now, in this moment, [...]

Why building a business or startup, is like painting a masterpiece.

In spending the last year REALLY digging into building a startup, I have learned that it is very much like painting a masterpiece. I said in another post "Art is everything, and everything is art", and this still holds true to me in many ways. I've painted since I was 5 years old, and the process is usually the same: You start out with a vision of what you want. Get the tools you need - paint, brushes, canvas, etc. Sketch out the vision on paper, and start one brush stroke at a time on canvas, keeping your vision in [...]

Art is everything, everything is art.

It's a bold claim, I know. How could art be everything and everything be art? Being an artist my entire life I am a bit biased, but looking out into the world, focusing on the present, you start to notice things. You notice how artistic everything in life is. From natural geometric patterns of a nautilus shell to the abstract formings of the clouds. If you really pay attention, who knows you too may start to notice everything is a work of art too -- including you. Photo by Adi Goldstein on Unsplash

The Power of Awareness

Awareness. One word that can change your life in an instant. This one word can be such a powerful tool when understood and used in your life. Just think, if a fish became aware that it was in water? Would it want to explore beyond? When was the last time you became aware of something that was seemingly obvious? If you have ever had an 'ah-ha' moment, you know exactly what I mean. When you become aware of something, you shine a mental light on it and expose it for what it really is. Your brain does some cool connecting [...]

The Power of Choice

It was not long ago when I was struggling to make a better life for myself. I lived in the 'flow', going where the wind took me and constantly found myself among the wreckage of ships full of dreams. Dreams mostly guided by others. While living in the flow has it's benefits in just living, it ignores the fundamental human right we are born with -- choice. Instead, I choose to let go of struggle and choose excellence. I choose to enjoy the process instead of live in worry about the result. You see, we all have the power to [...]
