Gotta Be

I have gotta be doing better, guys..I mean, with everything. Life has never been better but it could always be something even better? Do you do this? Do you do this thing where you struggle with patience.

Gary Vaynerchuk inspiration: ” Close your eyes until you are 29!” Well, thanks, but I am 32. Ok, seriously I love Gary Vee and that is not what he was talking about. His advice is one hundred percent true.

If you are reading this blog then you are on the journey with me. I feel like I don’t always define what I mean but the more that I have been on this thing the more raw and real I have wanted to become. I feel like I am, but it is also the internet so you should’t tell people what you struggle with. Someone might use it against you someday.

I don’t like the idea of waste. I gotta be honest.

I don’t like the idea of coming to the end of life and saying, ” I wish I wouldn’t have wasted so much time!” Or, so much money!

Or this or that.

The harsher word is regret, yet both seem connected.

I gotta be honest. I don’t think I am always honest. I think I tell myself that I have always felt like I am being to hard on myself or the fact that I think I am means I am really in a good place for even wanting to do better. At least I am one of those people that cares.

I was in Downtown L.A. this week for work. And I listened to Fast Car remix on the way home. One of these days I will probably make a video to Fast Car by Tracy Chapman, and Gun Song by the Lumineers.

I gotta be sitting here in Starbucks instead of playing hockey thinking I never have enough time to create the things I want to.


If you read Making Ideas Happen by Scott Belsky you will realize you mostly think yourself into a mess and never get yourself out of the mess.

An idea is one percent of it says Clint Berry.

Clint is a great inspiration and friend to me. And those close to me might never ever know what I am thinking. But I am always thinking, and just thinking feels like its gotta be a problem.

Life without action could be a lot of things but it becomes close to nothing.

Thinking is a gift but making something happen that is a service.

The only book I read in 2017 was Linchpin by Seth Godin. I bought 5 copies for our office. I got everyone hooked on that book because ALL OF IT IS TRUTH.

Art is a gift. The irony here is that I am blogging about stuff I am wrestling with telling myself that I struggle with not wanting to waste time and yet you are reading this.

I am glad I wrote this.

Its gotta be late and time for bed.

And that’s gotta be a hard one for me. Trying to rest.
