If you're a starter, a creator or a change maker, and you want something new in life, or out of life, it's time to learn who you are, and aren't. Before we build up, we need to really dig down. Every day I'll discuss a Zen saying or quote and we'll see how it applies to you and your new venture. My hope is that we'll learn somethings and unlearn other things. Let's have some fun!

Happy holidays! As we head into the new year, I wanted to share some of my own thoughts, hopes and dreams for 2019. Life is not a spectator sport and it is not a solo sport.

We all have goals for our lives. Things we want to start and accomplish. We invest in ourselves and sacrifice, so that we may achieve our goals.Issues arise when we can overthink, over-analyze and over-research, and never take that first step.
