It’s Hard to Live Your Best Life When You’ve not Yet Discovered Your Best Self

It’s Hard to Live Your Best Life When You’ve not Yet Discovered Your Best Self

“Every day, it’s important to ask and answer these questions: ‘What’s good in my life?’ and ‘What needs to be done?’” – Nathaniel Branden Do you ever feel like you can’t keep up with everything? Do you ever feel like you can’t stop trying to keep up? Do you ever feel like if you stop, you’ll lose your relevance or status? Do you ever feel like enough is never enough and too much at the same time? I guess, in…

The Urgent Need for Creativity in Life and Why Our Dependence on Personal Tech Can Erode Our Individuality

The Urgent Need for Creativity in Life and Why Our Dependence on Personal Tech Can Erode Our Individuality

A new year, a new you… The year was 2019. The place was Austin, Texas, during SXSW. Shortly after my keynote and official debut of LifeScale, I visited the Velocitize Talks studio hosted by WP Engine. There, I shared research and insights into my latest book, along with digital transformation, the future of brand, the impact of digital distractions, and the importance of living a more creative life. After all this time, I’m proud to finally share the results of that session…

Innovation in an Era of Digital Distractions

Innovation in an Era of Digital Distractions

Have you watched the “Social Dilemma” on Netflix yet? It explores the previously unknown, ignored, and dangerous human impact of social networking, with tech experts sounding the alarm on their own creations. I spent two years doing the same, most notably, with many of the players featured in the documentary. While social networking and gaming have rewired our brains and bodies, what the documentary, and most other experts and approaches leave us without, is a solution. I’m not a believer…

December 2020 is LifeScale Month 🙌: Let’s Make 2021 a More Creative and Happier Year

Dani Saveker developed Visual Synopsis to capture inspiring content in a beautiful, simple and memorable way. Did you know that half the human brain is directly or indirectly devoted to processing visual information? The brain can identify images seen for as little as 13 milliseconds. At least 65% of people are “visual learners.” In 2019, Dani Saveker, CEO and the founder of GLAS, and creator of Visual Synopsis, read LifeScale: How To Live a More Creative, Productive, and Happy Life. It…

May I Have Your Attention, No, May I Have Your Intention Please?

May I Have Your Attention, No, May I Have Your Intention Please?

My friend Stephen Denny asked me if I would write the foreword for his new book, “Unfiltered Marketing: 5 Rules to Win Back Trust, Credibility, and Customers in a Digitally Distracted World.” It meant a lot to me. Having the ability to set the stage for someone’s passion and hard work is not something I take lightly. I asked if it would be okay to share the foreword upon release of the book and he said, “of course.” Unfiltered Marketing…

Distracted: A Modern Manual for Living a Creative, Productive, and Happy Life in the Digital Age

Distracted: A Modern Manual for Living a Creative, Productive, and Happy Life in the Digital Age

Somewhere along the way, we got distracted. As much as we multitask, love our devices and feel like we’re in control, deep down we know that something is off. Shortened attention spans, declines in critical thinking, lack of sleep, self-doubt and decreased creativity are just some of the effects coming to light in an age of digital distraction. It’s time to reclaim our lives. It’s time to take control. We are the first generation to deal with tech overload. All…

Not Every Voice Deserves an Audience; But You’re not Just Another Voice

My friend Damian Corbet just released a new book, “Social CEO, The: How Social Media Can Make You A Stronger Leader.” As he was developing the manuscript, he reached out to ask if I’d write the foreword. After reading his work, the answer was, “absolutely!” I asked if I could share the foreword with you here…. Not Every Voice Deserves an Audience; But You’re not Just Another Voice If you’re reading this I’m going to make a series of assumptions…

2020 CX and Marketing Prediction: Shift from Tracking Trends to Creating Possibilities

2020 CX and Marketing Prediction: Shift from Tracking Trends to Creating Possibilities

I’d like to think of 2020 as we think about it with vision, 20/20, which means normal visual acuity. Marketing and CX in 2020 will be a lot like marketing and CX in 2019 (not a bad thing necessarily.) As we kickoff the new year, we’re already talking about hot new trends and how to integrate shiny new tech into existing thinking, processes and programs, doing cool things, without really changing the game. If 2020 can stand for something, make…
