Love. It’s one of the most important fillers of our Connection Buckets. But, then there’s this special “type,” some people call it “real love.” We got to wondering what that even means, and why so many people seem unable to “find and keep it.” So, we asked GLP friend, Terri Cole, licensed psychotherapist, meditation expert and founder […]

Luck. It’s a source of envy, denial, opportunity, anger, frustration, creation and astonishing success. When it happens to us, we revel in it. When it happens to everyone but us, we lament it. It’s become vogue in the world of performance and popular psychology to say it does not exist. Luck, we are told, is […]
Success is not just about knowing what to do. It is about doing it. All the information in the world, the best laid plans, the clearest, most-defined, measurable and attainable goals will not deliver the outcomes, results or resolutions you want.

On September 17, 2009, Simon Sinek stepped onto a small stage for a local gathering…and proceeded to blow away the world. The event was TEDx Puget Sound. He had no slides, no fancy presentation.

There’s something about working with your hands that changes you. Over the last generation, we’ve shifted largely to a “knowledge economy.” We value and compensate cognitive intelligence on a much higher scale than artistic, mechanical and physical intelligence. We elevate the importance of thoughts and ideas and diminish the role of hands and body and […]
How did a kid who grew up on a farm in Alberta, Canada end up an elite performance coach to Olympic athletes and CEOs? This is the story of today’s guest, performance savant and founder The 90 Day Year, Todd Herman. Did Todd get an advanced degree? Nope. Did he write a bestselling book? Again, no. […]
Calling all rule-breakers, rebels and deviants from the norm… Before you run screaming from convention, consider why the rules, the norms, the cultural guides exist in the first place. Then, ask yourself, before choosing to abandon them, if they still matter, and whether the better path to creativity, innovation and expression might be to master […]
