Probably around the same time the adage “no pain no gain” came out and acid washed jeans were a good call. Both have never worked for me, and here’s why.
The less I do the more gets done.
Shouldn't it be the other way around? I mean that’s what we’re taught right?
I had a major aha moment in a private jet at 30,000 feet.
The manager for a platinum selling artist was telling me the secrets to being successful - work hard, do everything you can to outshine everyone else, trust no one….the regular stuff. Ok, I thought.
BUT THEN IT HIT ME - this guy is super stressed out all the time! He doesn’t see his family for weeks or months at a time, is being screamed at by spoiled celebs and even picks out his daily outfit based on how his clients want him to dress, n...

Put all the “ice-cream” ingredients in the blender, blend until smooth…don’t over blend it will melt. Pour into a bowl and top with w...
I have been working my way through The Power of No by James Altucher and Claudia Azula Altucher, and last weekend, one of the homework assignments started calling out to me. Actually, it has been tugging on my arm for a while now, but last weekend, it started screaming my name to get my attention. So I resolved that—starting on Monday—I would begin a “Gratitude Diet” and do my best to stick to it throughout the week.
Here were my rules:
For the purposes of this diet, I defined a complaint as what comes out of your mouth (or runs through your head) when you feel frustrated, angry, and/or overwhelmed. It is a verbal (or mental) expression of lack of control and does nothing but add more tension, frustration,...
