Listen to David McCormick’s thoughts on the importance of clearing your inbox daily.

We all have bad/negative thoughts. Sometimes they have to run their course. Other times you have to recognize that there is no good end to them and shut them down as if you’re having a bad dream and make yourself wake up to stop it.
Go against what is accepted and known from time to time. Even just for the sake of sanity. The world feeds people plenty of lies and traps about all topics from health to politics to religion to people.

We all have our own level of struggles there. I’ve had my fair share.

The world is a small place and you never know where an acquaintance or favor you’ve done for someone is going to come back and repay you; or bite you in the ass if you burned someone along the way. Definitely some things just come my way because of recognition but generally I work and […]
“The gross national product (of a country) does not allow for the health of our children, the quality of their education or the joy of their play. It does not include the beauty of our poetry or the strength of our marriages, the intelligence of our public debate or the integrity of our public officials. […]
I hadn’t read Joseph Campbell in awhile. When I came across this essay last week, I got sucked in. This is inspiration. Please share. The Hero’s Journey (On Living in the World) by Joseph Campbell The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are. What you have to do, you do with play. Life […]
I had the immense opportunity to interview Mike Krzyzewski at the Milken Conference earlier this year. Coach K is one of the most successful coaches in any sport on any level. However, Mike is probably even more respected today for his role as a leadership expert, a motivational speaker and a philanthropist. You can view […]

As many of you know, I’m a huge fan of the musician Eric Bibb. He is one of the great performers living today. He is a Grammy-nominated blues musician who despite his accomplishments may still be one of the best-kept secrets in music. Eric’s guitar work and lyrics are incredible; however it’s something about his […]
Quality of life to me is living and loving consciously, embracing life’s experiences, making small yet attainable goals and enjoying all the little moments that life brings. 1. Think Positive I believe that people are inherently good, things are always getting better and all challenges can be turned into accomplishments. By embracing struggle as a […]
