Why Sushi Making is Just Like Life…

Recently I gathered together with some of my dear friends and we boldly expressed ourselves through the medium of Sushi. Now I can’t say that the rolls were exactly round (or square), or that the fish was cut properly. I do think a couple of the hand rolls sagged, and I am personally responsible for some oddly cut carrot slices.

However, it was wonderful to dine on a plateful of wonky rolls and strange little sushi squares! It reminded me that we can do anything and it doesn’t have to be perfect. We just have to take action even if we are feeling nervous or uncertain. For example, creating a successful business is not unlike making Sushi. If we wait around for things to be exactly right we’ll never start anything – especially those of us who crave perfection!


Trouble With Making Decisions?

One of the most profound issues I’ve noticed over the past 12 years of working with folks on their transformational paths is that people are incredibly challenged in their decision making. It seems like that would be such a basic and simple thing to do, yet experience shows me it is not. It’s become very obvious that most people have a striking inability to make a decision with absolute confidence.


What makes me feel REALLY sick

I’m normally a very calm person (although admittingly a tad impatient). And after all my years of spiritual training I’m rarely angry and I absolutely abhor feeling victimized no matter what occurs in my life.

But there’s one thing that still makes me sick to my stomach – and that’s when people live their lives devoid of meaning, passion, and amazement. How dare we squander our gifts and live in mediocrity not becoming the best that we can be?
