Social Distancing

Social Distancing

I am about to get controversial (which…let’s be honest, is probably the only reason you read my blog). No, this is not just another article about the Coronavirus, but I would like to take advantage of the term “social distancing”. 

Keep it Simple

Keep it Simple

Keep it simple. 

Everything in life has a simple solution. 

Everything is black and white.

We over complicate situations for one reason – we don’t like for things to be hard

Get Busy Growing or Get Busy Dying

Get Busy Growing or Get Busy Dying

If you are not growing or being stretched in any area that you are choosing to invest YOUR TIME, then what is the point? Why spend time doing anything if you are not growing and getting better in that area? 

They Hate You Till They Thank You (Sometimes They Still Hate You)

They Hate You Till They Thank You (Sometimes They Still Hate You)

Excellence is exhausting. It takes a lot of hard work. More importantly, it takes a complete disregard for most people’s feelings most of the time. But if you ever want true excellence, you have to hold people to a higher standard than they have ever been held to before. Because of this, you will soon find yourself at the brunt of a lot of hatred, annoyance, and being labeled as an ass.

Manufactured Passion

Manufactured Passion

Unfortunately, oftentimes, when we feel uninspired to do something we use the excuse of “uninspired” to put off that thing or, many times, we just end up not doing it at all. If you sit around waiting to feel inspired, then this is only going to be detrimental to your momentum. Success is found in momentum. Momentum is created through consistency.

Some Advice about Advice

Some Advice about Advice

When it comes to receiving advice, guidance, counseling or wisdom on a subject, make sure that the person you are asking is successful in the area(s) you are looking to grow or attain more wisdom and knowledge. 
Let me explain. 
I cannot tell you how many people come up to me and passionately give me financial advice, but they are broke. How many management books I have read from experts but after digging a little deeper, they have never actually managed a team of humans.

The Power of Being Self-Aware

The Power of Being Self-Aware

The other day I was asked this simple question, “Jonathan, when did you become self-aware?” My immediate response was, “I don’t know… I always have been”. As the day went on, that conversation replayed in my head over and over again until it hit me!

How to Raise Your Lid

How to Raise Your Lid

ALL people have a “lid”. Another, less eloquent word would be “potential”. Each and every single person in this world has a “lid”, or potential, of who they can become or what they can accomplish. Some people’s lids are much higher than others. The funny part is that most people put a “lid” on themselves and it is much lower than their lid should actually be.

Love It or Hate It, There’s Power in Polarity

Love It or Hate It, There’s Power in Polarity

Donald Trump, Kanye West’s Christianity, Elon Musk’s Cybertruck, all things that you probably are not only aware of but have some sort of an opinion about. What all of those references have in common is that they are very polarizing. Love it or hate it, we talk about it. Why?

Success is Really Freaking Hard

Success is Really Freaking Hard

Success is really freaking hard. The honest truth is that most people claim they want it, but almost no one is willing to truly go after it. Success is accomplished by doing the things no one else wants to do, or is willing to do, and doing it over, and over, and over, and OVER again for years without any outside motivation.

The “Secret” to Greatness

The “Secret” to Greatness

I will tell you the “secret” to being great…JUST DON’T SUCK! There, you are welcome. I know what you are thinking, “Oh wow, Jonathan, thank you so much! How insightful of you!”. Hear me out – in a world of perpetual distraction where everyone is half-listening, half-engaged, constantly on their phones, and perpetually daydreaming, all it takes to be great in today’s world is to be mentally present.

Canflict: Using Conflict with Intention

Canflict: Using Conflict with Intention

When you think of conflict, chances are high that you start squirming in your seat. In fact, our entire lives we do every single thing possible to avoid having the “tough conversations”. But conflict, when used intentionally, is helpful, productive, and even refreshing. Let’s call it “Canflict”. 

BoreDumb

BoreDumb

Anything you want to grow or improve takes one thing, which is focus. Whether you want to improve your relationship with your spouse, be a better parent, grow a business, travel the world, build something with your bare hands (insert Tim Allen man growl here), or anything else, you have to have a plan because without a plan, you suffer from boreDUMB (see what I did there?). 

If You’re Going to Be Here, Be Here

If You’re Going to Be Here, Be Here

Do you love your phone more than you love having sex? Research says you might. Cell phone usage and the warnings against it are not new, yet we continue to use our smartphones as a distraction or even as an escape in the most intimate of times. If you’re ever around me, there is a great chance you’ll hear me say: “If you’re going to be here, be here.” What do I mean by this?

Manipulation Management

Manipulation Management

Management is manipulation disguised as motivation to help others achieve mastery. Now that I have your attention simply because I used the word manipulation, let’s get started. Manipulation has such a negative connotation today,  but one variation of the definition means “to change one’s behavior in a skillful manner”. There are so few people in […]

The Fallout

The Fallout

The reason millennials focus so much on purpose, self-fulfillment through learning, and family before the money is because the generation before them did whatever the hell they had to do to put food on the table. They suffer from “The Fallout”. First, let’s get something out of the way: I am a millennial-but I hate […]

Talent is for Schmucks

Talent is for Schmucks

Schmuck /SHmək/ noun Slang. an obnoxious or contemptible person. Stop relying on your talent. Stop blaming your lack of success on your lack of talent. Talent is for schmucks. In fact, some of the most worthless people I know, or have ever managed, were the most talented people. You cannot win, get ahead, or succeed […]
