Little Reminders

If you feel you are not making progress, it is because your mind is a terrible obstacle. Pat yourself on the back and reward yourself for all that you have done.

If you forget why you are on the chosen path, remind yourself why it is you do what you love. Focus on all the positives and eliminate the negatives that may try and creep in. Walking is done one step at a time.

Remind yourself often of what is important to you. Family, friends, laughter and your amazing ability to attract new and wonderful people in your life. Find whats REALLY important to you and do that.

Our mind has a way of telling us that we are not good enough, when the reality is that we, in our current state, are perfect and need not achieve anything other than right now, because there is no past and the future is a dream.

Take time to appreciate you and all that you do, for those around you as well as yourself. You are beautiful and magnificent at this moment and NO ONE can take that away from you. Go watch a sunset, put on your favorite music, watch children play in the park...just be.

The best of your life is waiting for you right now, not in the future or in some distant memory from your past, but right now. Give yourself the love admiration and respect you deserve. Brush yourself off and be in love.

Until Next time...


  1. Chad,

    I'm not sure if I have the words to express exactly how much this meant to me. Especially on a day like today, when I was feeling sad, alone and not enough. I am about to fall asleep and I am so very thankful that I've read this just before bed. The timing could not be more perfect to help me have peaceful, beautiful dreams so that I may awaken refreshed and renewed in order to begin a lovely day. Thank you Chad for reminding me of what I had temporarily forgotten.

    Yours truly,

Feels like a throat punch to my heart

So, I thought today was going to be just another Sunday of lounging around and netflixing.  I don't think I have ever been so wrong in my life.  To start with, Facebook reminded me of my memories.  I happened to click on a friends link and decided to follow another link to my very first girlfriends sisters page.  Its random how I got there, but I blame facebook.

To my shock, I saw that her sister had passed on the 22nd of November.  I was shocked because I knew that she wasn't that old.  I reached out to an old mutual acquaintance and found out it was pretty sudden and unexpected.  That had me in some kinda mood.  Because of that, I began to text and email friends and check in and make sure then were okay.

I got a text message from a close colleague I used to work with at a previous job.

Beck: "whats shakin CB"
Me: "Not much just wanted to say hello.  Had a wake up call today.  Found out first girlfriends sister just passed away.  So sad...she was young"

Screw back up plans

Yes I said it.  Yes I have had quite a few unsuccessful ventures and I have recently started reading blogs that suggest backup plans.  I don't agree and I will tell you why.

When you have a back up plan you have an "oh shit that didn't work and I have to do something about it". Its like whatever it is going on in your life is going to fail or stop being at some point. Newsflash: You are correct!  NOTHING lasts forever. Your job, your marriage, your income stream, your family and most certainly not your startup or your job.  For those of you wishing to go back to the old days, its not going to happen.  The age of chivalry is dying and the startup that you create will be dead within 10-15 years.  We don't live in our parents or grandparents economy. Hell the way we communicate is changing. See example below and try and decipher what I am saying to you


Did you figure it out yet.  If so, please pat yourself …

Just a friendly update on me :-)

Hey everyone

Just wanted to give an update. You may remember that I said I was going to be coming back to California, well it is official.  I am heading down May 1. I will most likely take the train and stop in Napa to visit my cousin Stephen Bordes at his winery for a day or two.  From there, I will catch a train to San diego.

I am currently looking for work and open to any positions that may be available, I just ask that you don't hold it against me because I have a masters degree.  I have seen many companies shy away from hiring me because I have a Masters Degree.  I am honestly looking to get off my feet and find a base of operation. My home is California and I know that now.  I am native and the air, soil and water are in my bones.

I am looking to establish which means I will need to find a place to live (that I pay for monthly), maybe even get a car (down the road) for now I know that I will have to use the bus and I am okay with that. I am nervous as hell about this move …
