A Little Business Zen

I like to think there is a certain credibility that goes along with tattooing personal beliefs on the body. A certain conviction that emboldens ones mantra and being.  I hope that’s true, anyways, or Nancy* was definitely right and justified in removing me from her will… I just say that, though—and lead with it—because that

Live Every Day Like You’re AARP

“Live every day like it’s your last.” It’s something you’ve heard before. It’s also something that has been ruined, for most people, because of the people who typically say it. You know, the “entrepreneurs,” the people who came up with YOLO and the guys who tan. They don’t mean the words because they don’t live

#NationalRunningDay: The Mindful Battle of the Runner

(#NationalRunningDay was last week. Apologies for a delayed, hashtag irrelevant post. My mom was trying to log into my Netflix account to watch Madmen but couldn’t figure it out. She needed my help, so I was late getting the post up.)     Whenever a hashtag is involved, and something is trending on Twitter, it

“Flow”: Dealing With Pain, Turning Bad Into Good, and Reactivating Tinder

Jesus, the guy gets one tattoo and now he’s breaking down classic psychology. Blow me. … I know. You’re right in thinking that. You’re a dick, but you’re right. Who cares. “Flow” is a book about optimal experience. The book encapsulates everything relevant and needed to achieve that optimal experience whereas the word itself is

Tony’s Ten Rules for Success (Unauthorized Interpretation by: Beau Didier) … Oooohhh, be careful, Beau. Don’t f*ck this up funny man… Be honest, that’s what you thought when you read this title.
