Your Life: The ‘No Regrets’ Formula

Whether we realize it or not, we are in a large part, a product of every single experience that has been a part of our life up to this point. The good, the bad, and the ugly. All of them. Most of them we probably don’t even remember, but put them all on the table and roll them in to one big ball of experiences, and what you get is; well, you.

You Decide: Half Full Or Half Empty?

When was the last time you heard someone complaining about something? Ten seconds ago? Thirty seconds ago? A minute ago? I’m officially adding ‘complaining’ to the death and taxes discussion. Too many people spend too much time looking for their next fight. Baseball? I am beginning to think that complaining is America’s pastime.

Our Lives Are Shaped By Our Choices

Big or little, monumental or insignificant, frivolous or serious. Every minute of every hour of every day, our lives are filled with a never-ending stream of choices. How we choose, defines us as people. Who we are today is a product of all of the choices we have made up to this point. Our ‘life DNA’ is made up of a never ending string of ‘forks’ in our road.

The Importance Of Great Service

Generally speaking, I would rather have great service and a mediocre product, than a great bargain or fantastic product and poor service. Bad service can ruin everything for me. Great bottle of wine + scrumptious steak – good service = crappy night. Fountain soda + 3-piece meal (original recipe) + great service = happy Pete.

The Cold Hard ‘Truth’ About The Common Cold

A nasty cold has been going around our office the past couple of weeks, but I haven’t fallen victim. No sniffles, sneezes, coughs, body aches, fever, chills. No cold for me. Now here’s the question. Be honest. As you read this, are you thinking to yourself, “Well, that does it; Pete will definitely get a cold now just for talking about it.”

Shop Local: Because They Said To?

I love Northern Colorado. It is my home, and I want the very best for it. It is unique, beautiful, and full of good energy. Great people, schools, businesses. Really, we live in one of the truly special places. There has been a big push here to ‘Shop Local.’ I get it. The thought is that locally based businesses care more about our community and employ local people. (Hey, the big companies employ local people too.)

Few Things Are As Empowering As Gratitude

I just finished reading The Art Of Racing In The Rain, by Garth Stein. Great story. In it, one of the characters is dying of cancer and was told she had eight months to live. She had a party the day she exceeded the 8-month mark proclaiming, “Today is the first day I’m not dead!” That is gratitude.

Are You The ‘Reply All’ Culprit In Your Workplace?

In all the technology, and all the progress, and all the communication options, in all the world; all the buttons, all the devices, all the apps; Facebook, Twitter, email, instant messaging, texting, iPads, laptops, phone calls, VOIP, Skype, iPhones, Android, and on and on and on – there’s one thing I wish we would all forget how to use.

There’s No Substitute For Doing Your Best

What’s the best way to insulate yourself from ridicule, being unfairly judged, and being gossiped about? Let me rephrase that because there’s no way to stop ridicule, judgment, and gossip in the world. So, what’s the best way to insulate yourself from caring about being ridiculed, being unfairly judged, and being gossiped about?

Are You Passing Out Pleasure Or Poison?

If what we think about expands, then we want to focus on thinking about good, positive stuff right? That’s what we want to see growing in our lives. If we think about negative things, then that is what we will see happening around us. Not good. Now if our own negative thoughts can have that kind of effect on us, what happens if we spread it around to others?

You Are Stronger Than You Could Ever Imagine

I was diagnosed with stage-3 colon cancer nine years ago. Like most who are dealt a similar hand; I experienced surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Good days and bad days. Ups and downs. Life is one big roller coaster ride, and everyone’s track has a different layout. That was part of mine.

There’s No Shortcut To Greatness

Congratulations to the Green Bay Packers. (As a Vikings fan, saying those words does not come easy.) The NFL season is long, difficult, and trying. Training camp (usually) starts in July, but make no mistake, there aren’t any weeks off for a player, not one that wants to be great. Ending the run as Super Bowl Champions, and starting the next season 9-0 really says something about the team and the individuals.
