Jim Collins is arguably the greatest business thinker alive. He’s written classics like Good to Great, Built to Last and Great by Choice in which he applies rigorous research to what makes great companies great. One of my favorite ideas from his work is what he calls the Hedgehog Concept.

Michelle Segar, the scientist we learned about in our last +1, tells us that when we choose the Right (concrete) Why (“Feel better now!”) rather than the Wrong (fuzzy) Why (“Get healthier!”), we can turn our health behaviors like exercising and eating well into GIFTS rather than CHORES.

Here’s what we need to know: Pain, as the Dalai Lama tells us, is inevitable. Suffering, on the other hand, is optional. The trick is to keep the pain “clean” so we don’t suffer unnece ...…

The very first thing Phil Stutz taught me in our very first session together was the fact that Speed Is a Force. He told me that the longer we wait between feeling inspired to do something and actually doing it, the more our confidence and self-respect erodes.

We all have areas of our lives we want to Optimize. Stephen Covey tells us to think about our “Roles and Goals.” Tony Robbins calls it “Categories of Improvement.” The challenge with those is that we can get confused with a near-infinite number of Roles and Categories. I like to boil it down to my Big 3: Energy + Family + Service.…

Once upon a time (1938 to be precise) there was a pistol shooter. He was incredibly good. Hoped to be the very best, in fact. Unfortunately, our Hero has his right hand blown off by a faulty grenade during combat training. (Gah.) That was his shooting hand. (Double gah.) All hopes are lost. Or are they?…
