And you thought I was perfect…

My dad’s best advice was, ‘If all your friends jump off a cliff, does that mean you gotta?

Well, off I go!

I can drink coffee and go right to sleep.

I love coffee. Probably too much.

I can sleep in my car.

Ever want to get in a nap on your lunch break?

I get up early to write almost every morning. It’s nice to kick off my day with a feeling of accomplishment, but by midday I need my batteries recharged.

A nap for me is like a shot of adrenaline.

I’ve read Seth Godin’s Linchpin at least 10 times.

Actually, it’s probably more than that.

Some of my best ideas come when I’m mowing grass.

I wrote a post about this. You can read about my whole sweaty 6-hour ordeal — littered with epiphanies — right here.

I keep paper and pen or a digital notebook with me all the time. Ideas come when they will. You better catch them before the winds of change whisk them away.

I love to take risks, but I’ve never bought a lottery ticket.

It doesn’t make sense to take a bet that has lower odds than you being struck twice by lightning.

You never know until you try, but you can at least take an educated guess at the outcome.

I have an idea drawer.

It’s chock full of papers with ideas scribbled on them.

You learn. You grow. You take risks.

Then you do it all over again.

I can take a nice walk without leaving my yard.

My home is built on three and a half acres. We have a wooded lawn and an open field.

Sometimes I drip with sarcasm.

As an introvert, I spend a lot of time noticing things.

I used to dream of being like Zig Ziglar one day.

Zig Ziglar had a huge influence on me as a young man.

I’ve had a mustache since I graduated high school.

I shaved it off once when my daughter was a baby.

And here’s the half point.

Sometimes I take on too much.

It’s a lot easier to say yes than it is to say no.

Sometimes.
