We often get engrossed in a project or relationship and lose sight of what matters most. By taking a mini vacation and re-evaluating our direction, we gain clarity and peace of mind. When we focus on our foundation, we simplify our lives and live from our truth.


  • Stepping out of routine – We don’t give ourselves the opportunity to take our heads out of the weeds long enough to see if this (relationships, job, project, or habit) is working for us.
  • Vacation – means vacating our lives and realities for the purpose of reevaluating and relaxing.
  • Mission driven men have a full plate of objectives to tackle. Are we being deliberate about reminding ourselves what matters most?
  • What am I really here to do? What do I want with this one life that I have?  What do I want to leave behind when I’m gone?
  • Living for the next achievement gets in the way of living simply
  • Everyone is watching everyone. The way you show up in the world is having an impact on someone, whether you realize it or not.
  • Try not to over complicate your business, relationships, or exercise practice. Focus on the foundation and the most fundamental aspects.
