Never thought in a hundred years Izzy would make it this long. She has war bumps all over her but it doesn’t stop her little stubbly tail go a 100 miles per hour when you walk through the door. #boxerlove #mansbestfriend #boxersofinstagram #boxer
The worlds worst boss....
That would be you.
Even if you’re not self-employed, your boss is you. You manage your career, your day, your responses. You manage how you sell your services and your education and the way you talk to yourself.
Odds are, you’re doing it poorly.
If you had a manager that talked to you the way you talked to you, you’d quit. If you had a boss that wasted as much of your time as you do, they’d fire her. If an organization developed its employees as poorly as you are developing yourself, it would soon go under.
I’m amazed at how often people choose to fail when they go out on their own or when they end up in one of those rare jobs that encourages one to set an agenda and manage themselves. Faced with the freedom to excel, they falter and hesitate and stall and ultimately punt.
We are surprised when someone self-directed arrives on the scene. Someone who figures out a way to work from home and then turns that into a two-year journey, laptop in hand, as they explore the world while doing their job. We are shocked that someone uses evenings and weekends to get a second education or start a useful new side business. And we’re envious when we encounter someone who has managed to bootstrap themselves into happiness, as if that’s rare or even uncalled for.
There are few good books on being a good manager. Fewer still on managing yourself. It’s hard to think of a more essential thing to learn. #sethgoden
Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration.
Devour films, music, books, paintings, dreams, and clouds.
Steal only things that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Steal it and tweak it to make it yours.
Authenticity is invaluable. “It’s not where you take things from-it’s where you take them to” -Jim Jarmusch. . . . @paularden #paularden #oregon #oregonexplored
This was put together from a trip to Colorado with @tyler_m_king
a few years back. Shot mostly on iPhone. The quality isn’t awesome but the experience was memorable.

Fortunate to spend the weekend in White River, South Dakota with some amazing humans. The work is hard, the life is simple, the faith is strong and family is everything. Appreciate all the new connections made working with @bigfrigcoolers.
The bonding and deep and conversations was life changing shit.
Fall time is by far my favorite season. The leaves are turning slowly in the Midwest. Heading out tomorrow to a ranch in #southdakota
with tons of gear and good humans.
