The more focused you are, the more productive you are and the faster your accomplishments. The more time you spend on low-priority actions, worry, doubt or fear, the less […]

Mouseketeers

The other night, my wife and 17-year-old daughter had just come back from my brother’s house, which is just down the street from us.

The Particular Power Of Love

It was truly a remarkable sight nonpareil. Watermen and women, young and old, masters and novices — an endless stream of them — hopped onto their surfboards and paddled out just past shorebreak forming what soon became a tiny island bobbing in Hanalei Bay.
