My Mom turned 65 years old this past weekend, and it had me thinking about how we create markers in time in our lives. And it had me thinking to the time when she turned 60 years old.Read More
Every year around this time, I spend some time reflecting on the year gone by.
What really happened in the past 12 months? What went really well, and what could have been better? What did I accomplish, and what did I learn? At first glance, it may seem simple, but I spend hours and hours going through it all to really develop the picture.Read More

Earlier this month I attended my third World Domination Summit in sunny Portland, Oregon. Yeah, I said sunny. I've spent about a month there over the past three years, and I think it's only rained once or twice.

It's been a BIG week.
Just this past weekend, I was on stage telling the story of the first "Hikers Without Pants" event to 3000 people at the World Domination Summit in Portland. It was incredible, and the feedback from the crowd and everyone who approached me over the weekend was through the roof.
