May 7, 2018: Monday's Leadership Manifesto

FOCUS. It’s a powerful word. What kinds of synonyms come to mind when you think of the word focus? Maybe things like ‘hard-work’ ‘dedication’ ‘commitment’ ‘attention’ ‘what I wish I did more of’? In this week’s leadership manifesto, I change the two-word phrase of ‘focus on’ to another two word phrase, with ‘focus’ as one of the words, that may cause a complete mindset shift on the word focus for you, and seeing how we could be using it in our lives today in more effortless and meaningful way.

How I Overhauled My Diet So I Can Meet My Goals and Stop Feeling Like Shit All the Time

“What the hell is happening?” “When will the punches stop?” “How do I take control of this thing?” These are the questions I was asking myself when my body started revolting. Don’t take it from me, just look at the picture of this blog post of psoriasis juxtaposed on my stab wound scar. This week, I touch on my journey of diet and how it had potentially the single biggest impact on my mindset, and how it changed my mind through the clarity I received through cleaner eating.

April 30, 2018: Monday's Leadership Manifesto

So many tid-bits of 'do this, not that' or 'this is the way' or 'read me, read me' out there today. It's confusing, isn't it? I learned a valuable lesson 5-years back that completely changed the trajectory from where I was and where I am now with myself. And the insight is simple, yet powerful, and think if you're able to understand what it means for you, the only 'tid-bit' you'll subscribe to is the one you thoughtfully, and confidently develop for yourself. Listen now.

The Monday Leadership Manifesto - leadership meditations written to myself, for myself, shared with you.

"I have seen that in any great undertaking it is not enough for a man to depend simply upon himself." – Shooter Teton Sioux

When you hit a road-block, or feel stuck, how do you get yourself to move-forward to become un-stuck? I share an interesting experience I had when I was trying to do just that, and learned that by opening our minds to possibilities, sometimes the message for the path forward is right under our noses. Listen now...

All the best,

The Monday Leadership Manifesto - leadership meditations written to myself, for myself, shared with you.

"Doing nothing, or saying nothing, when what you have is needed, is worse than the offense itself."

This week, I talk about leadership-by-example, the importance of getting outside of our comfort zones during a time that makes it very difficult to do so, and, share a poem that I wrote to my brother to share in this uncomfortable feeling of vulnerability when fear is the only thing that is holding us back from taking meaningful action, during a time it is needed the most.

All the best,

The Monday Leadership Manifesto - leadership meditations written to myself, for myself, shared with you. "Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime."  This week, I reflect on the pervasive nature of today's quick-hit culture, lists to be successful, demagoguery, and a new call-to-action to define your personal success, and not according to some check-list of things that just leads people more deeply into confusion and discontentment. Listen now... All the best, Dave

Is Your Story Holding You Back?

Is Your Story Holding You Back?

We hear a lot about stories and write your story. What the hell does this really mean, and is the story you've written actually the thing holding you back? We spend so much time listening to others, waiting for them to tell us the way. Problem becomes that your story is really just an extension of THEIR story - so, whose story is it really? Take the time to think about your story, and reflect about whether it's serving you, or not. Discover how to properly reflect about this - read now.

Here’s Why You Need to Ditch Your Vision Board Immediately – and What You Need to Do Instead

Here’s Why You Need to Ditch Your Vision Board Immediately – and What You Need to Do Instead

I was like everyone else - reading all of the self-help books around goal setting, like The Secret, How to Think and Grow Rich, and the list goes continues. And, as I started to reach the goals I set out to achieve, I was missing the most important thing I was hoping for: happiness. I took the traditional top-down approach, without giving any thought to the consequences of reaching my goals. Once I shifted to a bottom-up approach, not only did I reach meaningful goals, but I was able to bask in satisfaction once I hit these new milestones along the way. Come learn how to do the same now...
