Don’t be fooled by what you think you know

“You can’t solve a problem with the same thinking that got you into it.” 
​- Albert Einstein

 

In business as in life, you MUST learn from those who have gone before you and those who are already experiencing the results you want.

There continues to be a myth perpetuated in this world that there’s such a thing as “self-made.” There’s no such thing. 

You are raised in a context of family, community, country and culture. Like a fish in water you’re largely unaware of just how much you’re influenced by the people and events around you. 

Just this past Halloween a muslim couple was walking around taking pictures of the children in costume. When they arrived at our door my wife remarked about how cute the costumes were. 

The Muslim woman replied, “This is amazing to watch, we’ve never seen Halloween before.” 

Think back to an epiphany you had that changed your way of thinking. What was its source? Was it upon hearing a quote, reading a passage from a book? Perhaps it came some time later after your subconscious had time to process it. ​​​​​​ ​​​​
 
You don’t already have what you need between your ears to get where you want to be, if you did you’d be there already. It’s an entrepreneurial must to keep learning. ​​

The point is clear, trying to go it alone is inviting unneeded frustration and doubles the time it’ll take you to get from here to where you want to be. ​​

Have some humility and ask for guidance instead of believing there’s something righteous about success in isolation.

Listen to this post … Hoping our kids learn important lessons through lecture is a fruitless strategy. All your kid really gets better at is tuning you out. I’ve learned (especially with ND kids), introspection is a more powerful teacher. But ND kids tend to avoid introspection. Their self-consciousness and inner critic make it something they want to

Anxiety is stored up energy for action you can’t take. When you fret about the past, thinking about how it should have gone, what you should’ve done – you’re suggesting to yourself another course of action is possible. Your subconscious mind thinks, “Yeah, let’s do

Getting beyond RSD with ADHD

Listen to this post … I have an idea about RSD (Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria) experienced by many with ADHD. I’ve noticed those that experience it perceive relationships in an all or nothing way. You’re loved or unloved, given attention or ignored, you’re happy when they’re happy. When in a relationship it’s often co-dependent. Wanting constant access to the

He’s going to be an adult someday so he may as well learn it now

Listen to this post … “He’s going to be an adult someday so he may as well learn it now.” This is a concerning belief in the mind of many parents raising a child with neurodivergence (ND). It demonstrates a fundamental misunderstanding about how our kids learn. Believing a consequence needs to be harsh and effective the first
