We couldn’t focus.
We couldn’t get things done.
We were tired.
Our minds were always racing.
We couldn’t sleep.
We kept making mistakes.
And our To-Do lists kept growing and growing and growing.
We tried to fix it…. by adding more to our to-do’s and doing more things at the same time. This only made it worse.
To make matters more confusing we blamed it on gluten, high fructose corn syrup, vaccines, mercury in our fish, fracking, and the depleting ozone layer. Mass media fed on our fears and convinced us that the problem was everywhere and there was nothing we could do. All of this noise confused us and led us away from the root cause of the problem.
It was right under our nose the whole time. You’re probably holding it in your hand.
Many books are written and released each year. Most of them are bad, some of them are good, a few are great, and the top .001% are exceptional.

It was Friday and I forgot to bring my lunch (I hate it, when I do that!).
My coworker Blake (also without lunch) asked me if I wanted to go to The India Palace.
We grabbed plates and quickly started demolishing mouthfuls of basmati rice and tandoori chicken. In between bites of naan we started talking about our current life struggles including our financial, personal and spiritual goals.
Common conversation topics for me.
