Better Eating vs. Exercise – Do You Really Need Both?

When people are trying to get healthy, there are two main ways in which they generally go about doing it: through diet, or through exercise. In fact, when we think healthy lifestyle, we think of something based around those two subjects. While both are necessary in order to live a completely healthy lifestyle, many people are keen to extol the virtues of one over the other. However, there is one simple truth that no amount of exercising or dieting will erase: in order to live a truly healthy lifestyle, you cannot have one without the other. Sure, you might go to the gym every day, working your body to its limits, but if you are combining that with a diet of fast food and candy, […]

5 Steps for Sharpening Your Mind for Success

Your success is not in your hands. It’s in your mind. I saw you snicker and that’s not some psycho mumbo jumbo. When you make up your mind to be a success, your mind leads your actions. Those actions lead you to success because you become what you think about most. You know it’s true. Remember the gorgeous blonde you saw in the bar and you fell all over yourself trying to pick her up? It didn’t work. Because you had in your mind that she was out of your league, but you tried anyway. She thought it was hilarious that you couldn’t talk like a grown man, but she wasn’t going out of there with someone who wasn’t ready for her level of class. […]

6 Lessons Learned From Over 200 Hours of Therapy

“You can stay in therapy your whole life, but you’ve got to live life and not talk about life.” –Tracey Gold I’ve been to over 200 hours of therapy. These are the some of the things I’ve learned from all that time and money spent. Dun. Dun. Dun. I wanted to replicate the beginning of Law and Order, but I probably failed. That’s okay and that failure leads me to the first thing I learned. It Is Okay To Be Who You Are I tell some really dorky jokes. Jokes that are unfunny to most people. I use to not do this because I was ashamed of being me. I was afraid of others judging me so I hid parts of my personality that I […]

The One Technique to Get What You Want From Difficult People

Last week I was in Silicon Valley and I was meeting with one of my consulting clients, a CTO at a high growth startup. During our conversation, we started talking about one of his engineering managers. He was struggling to manage this fellow, since every time they were trying to make a decision (green-lighting a new feature, adjusting their strategy, etc.) this manager reacted with resistance. It didn’t matter what the decision was; it seemed like he always had an objection. Luckily, I was able to help. How? Well, I know a lot about this kind of difficult behavior firsthand, because I used to be that guy. As engineers we are taught to look for bottlenecks. When building software the ability to think through potential […]

5 Ways To Add Spark to Your Cup of Coffee (and Life)

Is your coffee just something you grab as a take-out from the faceless coffee shop on your way to the office? Or is it worse, some grey watery liquid dispensed from a machine. Could you be getting more from your coffee and indeed life? 1. Pause just a moment and do it well. If you’ve ever been to Paris, amid the rush and packed metros, you may have seen that the French have a great way to enjoy coffee. They don’t do the take-out but they don’t sit down either. It’s au comptoir and it saves a few cents as well. A big advantage of standing at the bar is that the coffee is drunk from a nice little china cup – it’ll be an […]

Success Comes To Those Who Have No Need For It

The idea of hard work leading to success has been a universal and sacred tenet for centuries. But is it true? Does hard work truly lead to success? Is every hard working person that you know a success? Or is their life full of disappointments and anguish? As is always the case, this advice is a reactionary response to laziness. Those who lack drive and motivation are told that they need to work hard in order to become a success. However, the idea of hard work has led to just as much frustration as has the failure to reach one’s goals. And there are good reasons for this. Since childhood, whatever activity we have been involved in, we have been told to do it HARD. […]

25 Guiding Questions to Identify and Manage Anxiety While Recovering

You can’t enter a battlefield armed with only an arsenal of interrogative statements. However, acquiring a database of questions can definitely tame a few pesky weeds. For example, I might worry intensely every day. But maybe I can search inside myself to transfigure at least a good chunk of those worrisome thoughts into a mindset focused on recovery. Questions are a great medium to begin identifying and treating anxiety-related thoughts. Even then, your mind might still feel like a ship with holes in its rudder, and when water floods inside, you’re overwhelmed with nerves. I myself knew that I was too stuck on small matters, so I remedied sessions and readings to help me. I’ve learned from those experiences that some questions are worth asking […]
