Friday Thoughts with V.P. Pat Flynn 10/16

I was reminded this past weekend how short and fragile life is.   You can wake up one morning healthy as a horse, eat breakfast, brush your teeth, kiss your kids, and never come home that night.   Every day that you wake up with the people you love around you is a win and…

  Going practical this week:   The ONE thing I implemented this past quarter that has made the biggest change in my life. 1. Get everything out of your head and into your head and on to an organized list (everything from changing the oil in your car to long term business goals).   Having…

We just finished reading “Grit” by Angela Duckworth at Yellowbird and wanted to share some motivation this Friday 7/31 Watch her TED talk here to get a brief overview of her concept.
