The 3 Steps To Stop Procrastinating

I’ll be real with you. It’s taken me two weeks to simply start writing this blog post. Procrastination is a real, debilitating habit in my life, and I can’t ethically write this post without sharing my own struggles with you. I’ve been “planning” on doing the Precision Nutrition Certification for 2 years. I’ve been “thinking” about starting my boot camp…

11 Rules of Life

The Productivity Formula: P.R.O.D.U.C.E.

In college, I use to walk to class with my earphones blasting the latest Drake or J. Cole lyrics. Sure, it’s a pretty cool party trick to know all the bars to a Cole verse, but it doesn’t add much value to life aside from that.

The Rider, The Elephant, & The Jungle: Keys To Positive Change

“Our dilemma is that we hate change & love it at the same time; what we really want is things to remain the same but get better.” ~Sam Harris It’s 8pm. I’m blaring some positive motivational speeches into my headphones. It’s nice to end my day with some Earl Nightingale or Jim Rohn rah-rah-dominate-life type of stuff. I’m getting excited…
