Bulletproof! - How do we become "Bulletproof"?

First, a big thank you to Izmael Arkin for posting a comment that made me really think this out again.  Good follow-up questions!!!

In order to become “Bulletproof” at a task, I hedge my “cost ≤ benefit bet”.  I do this by knowing and actively managing my “self”.  To explore that, we will have to swim in the deep end of the thought pool…swim this lap with me and we shall learn as we go.

My first significant…

Getting to the Right Direction

Well, it has been quite some time since I have been on here.  I wanted to go over a few things since my stroke that has helped me decide what I need to do for my future.  I have had a couple of ideas that seem to want to be in the lead, but haven't been able to choose the right one.  I think that has changed finally.  

Let me bring something to the forefront that helped me in my decision, I had a stroke in February this year.  I am doing quite well overall and rehab is going better…

I drop my son Nicholas off at school in the mornings and in doing so I have to go through a car pool line. At the stop where he gets off there are a line of teachers waiting to escort the kids out of the cars and into the buildings.

I noticed at the beginning of this year, one particular lady was very intentional…

Connecting your business to a charitable organization?

I’ve recently started a new business and as part of my model I would like to donate 10% of all sales to a charitable organization associated with the subject of my photography.  Has anyone else ever done this?  Any tips on how to locate a legitimate and honest organization, get the donations set up, intervals as when donations should be done, and any tax implications or additional record keeping that may need to be done?  I’d appreciate any input and ideas!  Thanks!

Fatherhood, Faith, and the Outdoors

I feel a strong and consistent calling to get men outdoors.  There is a huge outdoor deficit among men today.  They are afraid or intimidated or just don’t get how important it is. 

I also see a huge father hunger among men for their own fathers, and doubts about fathering their own children.

My Christian faith has never been stronger, but I am so frustrated with organized churches.  Jesus went to the wilderness, or went up a mountain or off by himself to reconnect with his…

Bulletproof! - Why do we have periods of success and failure?

Be Bulletproof!!!

Pretty much everyone has heard the term “bulletproof”.  If you haven’t, email me and I’ll set you straight.  That said, I’m not sure if you have heard the expression in the context of leadership risk.

I’ve been lucky enough to have three mentors in the same organization explain it to me over my 25 year career therein.  Each time the term came up I was told I was the luckiest man on earth right now because I was the new guy and therefore I was “bulletproof”. …

To Hire A Low Maintenance Team: Hire Character

I am one of those guys who does not always get to control the TV remote in my house.  Because of this dynamic, my desire to watch Deadliest Catch or SportsCenter is put on hold so my wife can watch one of her cooking shows.

One thing I often hear on these shows is to always start with the best ingredients:  really good vanilla, fresh vegetables or premium meats.  I see this as an essential for …

Am I Bankrupt?

Original Post: treys.us/Jzh3DA

If you're facing mounds of debt with few assets and poor cash flow,  it's common for this and other questions to plague your mind.  What if I get behind on payments?  Will I need to file bankruptcy to keep creditors from suing me or taking my property?

While everyone's situation is different, the good news is…

Relationships are tough to manage. That’s why I don’t manage them, I invest in them. That’s the only way a relationship should be looked at; an investment. If you try to manage it, you’ll end stepping all over yourself because you’re only making decisions about what benefits…

Launching my new business!

So my business idea has been in the planning and idea phase for awhile now, but I'm finally starting to get the wheels turning and decided to "launch" as best as I can! I need to cash flow the start of this until I have enough sales to create a solid web presence and a commerce web store, but I just started to roll out a business Facebook page yesterday and posted a print for sale on eBay (seller name: lekili79). I'm so excited! I'd be grateful for anyone to check out my eBay listing or…

Group Leader
Jobs I Have Had

Recently I have been thinking about what would be the best fit for me to spend my time doing.  I currently teach at a Junior High school and am transitioning out of that and into something else.  The something else will more likely be temporary (3 years) and will lead to something else (hint: like Purposeful U).

So as I look forward to the future, I cast one eye backward at my past. it wise to see how one has found themselves where they are at the moment. …

Do or Do Not, There is No Try

When Master Yoda was training Luke in Star Wars, Yoda told Luke that there was no “try”, you either do something or you don’t. Now, after you’ve stopped laughing that I have decided to use a quote from a fictional green Jedi Master to drive home a point, think about what Yoda is really saying here. He is telling Luke that it isn’t a matter of can or can’t, it’s a matter of will or won’t. You will either accomplish what you want because its genuinely something you really want, or you won’t.…

How To Create A Culture of Respect
