Speaking to the US Army 307 ES Battalion #055


While my family visited the island of Oahu, an old friend that was in my youth group 25 years ago invited me on to speak to the 307th Expeditionary Signal Battalion.

I absolutely agreed to present and instead of talking about leadership or technology or any of the things I speak about professionally.. I spoke about some really uncommon topics for the military, because I felt it necessary to help them connect with their mindset and soul.

It was so warmly received, I was given permission to share it publicly… and that’s what we’re going to do today. I’m sharing with you, the recording of that speech with soldiers of the US Army base in Hawaii.

In the email Hans sent me, he posed some initial questions about struggles he was having in business. I replied with some thoughts I had and then offered to do a pro-bono coaching call to see if we could explore his challenges a little more deeply as long as he allowed me to record it for the show.

How to be patient in the process #037


Why must anything require patience? It’s a junky thing to have to wait for anything – I want it NOW… right?

The most well intentioned people will tell you, “good things come to those that wait” or “patience is a virtue”. But that doesn’t resolve the anxiety I’m feeling or the urgency to see this situation resolved.

However, in the pain, fear, and frustration there is a way to rise above to make more effective decisions for you and the people you love.

On this show we talk about hating your current situation, pushing past our need for control, and the art of patience.
