Secret hack to improve your spirit

Love the juxtaposition between Disney and Glacier National Park (famous red Jammer Bus), at Castaway Cay in the Bahamas.

The secret hack to improving your spirit?

The way to get better is to get better at getting better.

Probably in the first or second week after our son was born, two decades ago, after i awoke and walked down the hall to his room, i would kiss his head and get on my knees and say three significant prayers.

Then i would return to our bedroom and kiss my wife on her head as she slept.

As recent empty nesters, this daily habit is continued without the walk down the hall.

Once a day, everyday, for 20 years.

Seemingly insignificant.

Prior to 20 years ago, i did not start the day on my knees.

Now it’s unfathomable to start any other way.

The reality is this ritual doesn’t take long. For that very reason, how could i ever skip a day?

Start on your knees

Amazing. Grace. The gift of another day.

Start on your knees.

Why?

Why wouldn’t you?

Seriously.

Think about it.

Seriously, i cannot imagine having a life that is so busy and/or unfocused that i couldn’t start on my knees.

To be clear, this was an evolution, a transformation, to create this habit after becoming a dad in 2000.

Be careful what you wish for

Santiago, Chile
Santiago, Chile from the W Hotel.

Santiago, Chile
Home for 36 hours.

Santiago, Chile
Room with a view.

Santiago, Chile
Loaners.

Be careful what you wish for.

The goal is to do moderate travel – most likely internationally – until our Son starts college in nine months.

There’s a chance this thing (demand for my speaking) could explode.

The perfect silence

 

The perfect silence…

Is when you can hear a pin drop in a sea of people.

What does it take for us to stop and listen for a pin to drop in a crowd?

How often does it happen?

What do we lose by pushing everything else aside?

When was the last time it happened?

What do we gain?

Some things are so simple they confuse us

Glacier in August snow
So different for late August. So cold. So beautiful.

 

Pencil or a broom?

Earn with your mind (pencil), not your time (broom).

Do or think?

Pray with your steps or with your thoughts.

If that last sentence didn’t make sense, try rereading it.
