Write it down. Write it over and over again. Keep it somewhere that you read it over and over again. Make it more than just something you want to do, make it something you will do!

All of those lines or phrases have probably been written in one form or another a million times and can be found, printed multiple languages in every Self Help section of any Barnes & Noble. I don’t think that makes their message or the reason behind them lose importance. I am a big believer in “Thoughts Are Things,” and all that mumbo jumbo that you always seem to hear very successful people screaming from the back seats of their Rolls Royce Phantoms.

About 3 months ago I wrote my own little mantra and I just realized I haven’t read it often enough. Not at all! I sprung out of bed one night, grabbed a Bic pen and wrote, right on my white wall “Do Something Big Today.”

With the life changes that are coming up at a rocket’s pace, I need to keep reading that over and over and over again. After all, that’s the long term goal for everyone right. I mean, big doesn’t mean Celebrity Status or an Estate in East Hampton. “Big” could be the perfect house with the perfect family in the perfect little town in Middle America. “Big” should mean something different to everyone and probably does.

But the question is, “what do we do on a daily basis that helps us obtain what we really want? What do we do on a daily basis that helps us get us to where we want to be?”

Thanks for listening


  1. Oh no! Self help books? Does this mean your future writings will be peppered with reflections about "getting real" and "making 'me' time"? I think this blog could turn into a coool way for us readers to follow your journey from suit and tie career guy to writer. Just don't turn into a blogging Dr Phil guest!

  2. Nope, I promise no Dr. Phil content coming in time soon. I just mean it's sometimes a good thing to write and talk about what you want...after all, if you don't who will?

  3. i havent done anything to get me anything, or that is the way i have been feeling lately. but then what do i know, i'm just a girl.
