ESD 104: The *Real* Reasons to Write a Book
Yep, fame and fortune. Those are nice. But they’re not the *real* reasons to write a book. I might entice you to join the book writing party with raging rivers of flowing cash. But I’m going to get you to stay at the party–even host the party–when you see what’s really behind my motives to write a book.

ESD 102: Habits: Daily, Weekly, Monthly. Choose one, some, or all. Not none.
The dentist asked, “How often do you brush your teeth?” What he’s really asking is, “How seriously do you take each small steps leading to your future?” How’s that bucket list coming along? How about the “Big Dream Life” you fantasized about? Or still do? And still will? Hey, I’m not knocking you. I spent a good decade (that’s TEN YEARS if you’re counting) “dreaming” of being an author before I took steps to become an author. Then I started writing Every Single Day. Ask me how often I work towards keeping up the title “author” on the etched glass of my office?* Nope, it’s not every other Tuesday. It’s Every Single Day. Daily too much? Guess what: Thursday comes around every week? I know, so cool. The 17th of the month comes around each month, too. So crazy. What’s your schedule for creating your future personality?

ESD 95: Excerpt from the CREATE audiobook. Ch. 5: Trigger Daily Clarity
“An unfortunate thing about this world is that the good habits are much easier to give up than the bad ones.” W. Somerset Maugham To create new habits, it’s easiest if we create a ritual or a trigger to know we’re going to get started. Every time I walk into the woods: 1. My mind becomes more clear 2. My ideas grow bolder 3. My fears spill into the ground 4. My dreams soar among the trees 5. The birds tell me what to do next That’s just a few steps into the woods. My dad used to have a piece of chocolate after dinner. He really enjoyed it. In fact, it got to the point where if we didn’t have any chocolate in the house and dinner was over, he would get antsy. Dinner meant it was almost chocolate time. Yep, the “bad” ones are harder to kick than new (good!) ones are to create. Still, find the trigger, create a ritual, go a little nutty with it. Watch professional athletes and their rituals. Each time that Steph Curry makes a 3-pointer, he taps his chest and points upwards. It’s his ritual or even prayer or thank you for making the shot. Yet, we can do the same before something happens. I walk into the forest. What do you do? What could you do? Where might be your “creative space” where you’ll let your ideas arrive without having to go through security or customs? Let’s make up a simple one just for example’s sake here. Say you want just a bit of clarity in your life. It could be for anything, short-term decisions such as what to make for dinner all the way to some help with your next career choice. Create a daily ritual, a physical symbol, a motion, even a whispered mantra to let you know, “Hey, here we go. It’s about to get real around here.” Then give yourself the time to do the thing. It could be as simple and quick as: 1. Brushing your teeth with your eyes closed and letting the humming brush shake loose your next fabulous idea. Twice a day. Boom. 2. Taking just two tiny little extra minutes after your shower to sit down, in the bathroom, on the toilet if there’s nowhere else (PRO TIP: close the lid first), and with some deep and slow breathing, shed the dread of your upcoming day and gather the strength to go on the offensive. (Ooh, “shed the dread,” I like that! See, I’m “being creative” here sharing tips on how to let creativity in!) 3. While on a walk, even if it’s a short as around the block or to the mailbox, take out the earbuds, put your phone in your pocket, and just listen. What do you hear? Birds? Cars? Dogs? Filter everything else out and hear what you want to focus on. There you have it, 3 extremely non-scientific but possibly powerful triggers to get you started to tap into your deeper knowledge, your quick-witted charm, and a bit of the unknown. Relish it. Do it daily. Follow the trigger. • Possible: wait for perfection to arrive magically • Impossible: change yesterday’s trigger • Repossible: trigger daily clarity

ESD 93: The Snack Cart
How you do anything is how you do everything. So, how are you doing on the “anything” stuff? This was a voicemail I left my mom but hey, it’s good for everyone to hear. How do you treat the person rolling around The Snack Cart? Or in other words, who are you truly?

ESD 90: How often do the trash guys come by?
Spring has Sprung. Listen for the Woodpecker. Either I spend too much time in nature–or not enough. I’m in the woods and I hear birds, singing, and a woodpecker. Take some time out of your day and listen to the sounds around you. Every Single Day was trash day. After a few weeks, guess what? You get used to it. “Wow, I don’t know what to do.” Do what I know how to do: create. Every Single Day. There’s no snooze button on the natural world.

ESD 85: If Every Single Day is a raindrop in a bucket, it’s time to throw in a rock
I promise I won’t write “Every Single Quarter,” but 4 times a year is a good time for a bigger splash. This stems from Mike Kim’s “Brand You” podcast episode titled, “How to create your annual marketing strategy.” BYP 215: How To Create Your Annual Marketing Strategy
