Fatherhood Hit Me Like a Ton of Bricks

Fatherhood Hit Me Like a Ton of Bricks

Don’t get me wrong it’s all the things they tell you. A new love you could never imagine. A tribal brotherhood that you are immediately initiated into. Whatever they said, all of it in spades. I have been blessed with a fearsome amount of success in my life; great...

Life Doesn’t Care You’re a Lawyer

Life Doesn’t Care You’re a Lawyer

Life simply does not care you are a lawyer. Despite all your work, planning, Type A manic control issues it could care less about giving you authority on the most primal of situations.

Lawyers and Happiness – A Pragmatic Discussion

Lawyers and Happiness – A Pragmatic Discussion

We in the legal profession made the decision to spend a ton of money and time becoming a lawyer—a career path known for long hours, angry clients, burn out, depressive issues, and substance abuse. Throw a bunch of family and social obligations on top of that and you have the recipe for the modern lawyer asking the same question as so many folks throughout history have asked: “Am I happy?”

Picking up When you Fall Down

Picking up When you Fall Down

Warning: 90 Second Read about Picking Up when you Fall Down It is so easy fall in our daily journeys. The question is do you get back up or do you allow yourself to tailspin. Everyday you have the choice. I have been trying really hard, with real success, to get in...

Letter to my Unborn Child

Letter to my Unborn Child

Our amazing friends threw Brina a super epic shower a couple weeks ago and part of the theme was to write a letter to our unborn child talking about its mother. I gladly obliged and here is my submission.

Commit to the Moment!

Commit to the Moment!

When I am with someone I will try to give them everything but in return I want the highest level of commitment to the moment from them. Some people naturally have this level of engagement but some don’t. There is no shame in letting people know what you need and expect out of relationships!

Results Driven v Process Driven

Results Driven v Process Driven

What I think our society fails at sometimes is truly discussing the process by which you reach the results. The process can be more important than the actual result.

What Controls your Narrative, Aspirations or Failures?

What Controls your Narrative, Aspirations or Failures?

About 90% back in form after spraining my lower back a couple of weeks ago. Ricco has been a saint trying to work around it. I am interested in how we handle defeat. In my past I would take a failure as an end game. If I did not achieve domination in the first...

What are you Doing with your Daily Re-Birth?

What are you Doing with your Daily Re-Birth?

Everyday we are given a re-birth, a new chance to seize the day in front of us. But let's be honest, I know for me it is real easy to wake up, not wanting to wake up, feel overwhelmed and carry the feeling of oppression all day. It is kind of like being punched in the...

Embrace your Pain

Embrace your Pain

We are not going to get rid of pain. To live is to suffer. But if we embrace the pain we can work around it and continue to push forward.

Sit Down and Decide if this is your Jam

Sit Down and Decide if this is your Jam

Warning: Long ass contemplative post.I am not good at jump rope and pull ups. Nothing to mind boggling there right? Makes sense that a big guy who is not very coordinated would have a hard time with these types of activities.In my life typically that would have been...

What is your Awesome?

What is your Awesome?

One thing that strikes me is our inability to let ourselves go and truly experience and enjoy the moment. Think about how many times you decide something was going to be bad before you even started it. Most of the times it probably was just as you expected. How we decide to approach life dictates most of what we get out of life.
