This Happened When I Got Into the Shower inspiration Jul 18, 2021

It nearly always happens.

I get in the shower and...the ideas start-a-flowin'!

Why couldn't the ideas come to me before I hop in the shower?

You know...when I can write them down!

I guess this is just one of those mysteries of life we'll never understand.

And that's okay.

So, when I stepped into the shower this morning, the idea for this post popped into my brain.

Literally, as the water rained over me.

Too late to step back out, dry off, and write the idea down now.

Well, I could...

Leave Your Headphones At Home inspiration productivity silence Dec 26, 2020

I'm a daily runner.

In fact, I have run every single day for over 1200 days in a row.

And I used to go out running listening to music, to a podcast, or to an audiobook.

But then about a month ago, I decided to try a new experiment. And that experiment was to listen to nothing. Well, not nothing. I'm listening to what's going on around me.

Did you know that birds chirp? Did you know that wind makes a sound when it goes through the trees?

By not listening to music or to a podcast or to an...

August 29, 2017.

But let me go back to August 25-29. When Hurricane Harvey was pounding the Houston area with over 51 inches of rain.

During the storm, when there was water everywhere, I happened upon an article on Runners World's website titled something along the lines of, "What I Learned From Running At Least One Mile a Day Every Day For 250 Days".

After I read the...
