Richard Gere talks with the New York Times-bestselling authors as they unveil new research showing what meditation can really do for the brain.   In the last twenty years, meditation and mindfulness have gone from being kind of cool to becoming an omnipresent Band-Aid for fixing everything from your weight to your relationship to your achievement level.

Introducing N-of-8 Mastermind Groups

  Based on feedback and suggestions from more than 125 other business professionals, I’m forming N-of-8 Mastermind Groups with people from different industries, professions, and fields of study. All to help you get lots of different perspectives on your own goals. If you’re like other friends and colleagues I talk with, there are many things that might be keeping you from the next moves you want to make. Instead of just accepting the way things are, I’d like to help you engage with a group of 8 successful people to inspire, push, and guide you. For more success at work […]

View from The Bridge

When we look around us, we can see inspiring views like the wintry Idaho river and bridge scene above. Similarly, when we look outside our routines, we can find new and inspiring ideas. In my newsletter this month,  I share ideas on inbound marketing, healthcare innovation, and start-up invention. I hope they offer some different perspectives for a brand or initiative you might be working on. If you’d like to compare notes on projects, just drop me an email any time.

Community Support: Habitat for Humanity of Boise

Jenny and I attended the 8th Annual “Evening in the Garden” event to support Habitat for Humanity.  It was held at the FarWest Landscape & Garden Center. This event helps Habitat for Humanity in building and repairing houses across Boise and the Treasure Valley region, using volunteer labor and donations. The live & silent auction raised money through sales of custom planters, fountains & garden items, along with other creative packages for the home. (Above is a photo of the smoke tree we brought home to plant in our yard.)

Creativity: The Perfect Crime by Philippe Petit

Philippe Petit is a magician, street juggler, visual artist, builder, and a writer. He’s a born rebel who taught himself everything from an early age.  He would hide from people in order to stare at them, so he could study them from top to bottom, their every move, and noticing the smallest of their mistakes. He developed a secretive way of learning how to cultivate the attitudes, resources, and techniques to tackle even seemingly impossible feats. (If you are unfamiliar with Philippe Petit, look up his epic 1974 high wire walk between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center.) […]
