Steven's Own Words

Notice Some Changes?

Notice Some Changes?

Nothing is so constant as change, they say. As you might have noticed lately, I’ve made some serious changes to my website! In addition to streamlining aesthetically, I’ve added a page explaining my philosophy, as well as a more easily navigated toolbar...

An Everyday Miracle

As 2015 unfolds, and some have already broken their New Year’s resolutions, I am reminded of one of my favorite quotes, often attributed to Albert Einstein: There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though...
Your Hot Water Self vs. Your Everyday Self

Your Hot Water Self vs. Your Everyday Self

Eleanor Roosevelt famously said, “Women are like teabags. You don’t get their full flavor until you put them in hot water.”  The same could be said for men, I suppose–but why? Why is it that when put in hot water, we rise up to do extraordinary things, things we...

I Am Ready To Fly (Are You?)

And here it dawns in a few short hours. The New Year.      A New Beginning. In a relative matter of moments, it will be that magical spark of endless possibility. Midnight. But not just any midnight. A midnight that rolls around but once in 365 nights. A midnight that...

Thought For the Week: Navigation

Great leadership raises the sails of one’s dream, navigates it in the direction of possibility, and converts the opposition & challenges to create the lift required to produce power, drive, and forward momentum. Sound complicated?  It’s...

Pessimism Into Engagement

Here’s a thought that’s been on my mind lately: How do you turn pessimism into engagement? The tragedy of a pessimistic attitude is, unfortunately, something we often have to face on a regular basis–whether that’s inside ourselves, feeling...
Your Fair Share

Your Fair Share

When it comes to relationships, personal, professional or otherwise, sometimes–okay, most times–we’ve got to cut each other some slack. Fair? Oh, how often I hear people say, “Our relationship is fair, equitable, 50/50 even, we each do our fair...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Ok, after spending WAY to much time trying to come up with something cleaver and creative to try and express what I most want to say this Thanksgiving, I decided to cut to the chase and simply be direct.  Are you ready? OK. Take both your arms, stretch them out in...
