Don't Let Your Dreams... Remain Dreams

Dreams are great, but only if you make them a reality.


Dreaming is part of what makes us all human. Some of us dream of love, fame, and fortune, while others simply want to see the world. Whatever your dreams are, the most important thing you can do with your dreams is find a way to make them come true.

Dreaming is a wonderful thing, but if you don't do anything about turning them into a reality, they will forever remain nothing more, than a dream, and that's a shame. You can spend a lifetime dreaming but without getting out of your comfort zone, your dreams will change from fantasies of what you hope to do one day, to something you will regret missing out on.

Don't let your dreams remain dreams. If you want something, find a way to make it happen, but you've got to mak... [More]

A FIRST For Everything?

Enough with all the firsts!


History books are loaded with "Firsts". Some of them are pretty well known, like George Washington, Christopher Columbus, John Glenn, Neil Armstrong, or Jackie Robinson. I don't even need to mention what their "Firsts" were, because they're that well known. The trouble is, we've become obsessed with firsts, and it's diminishing the true meaning of first.

For example, when Sonya Sotomayor became a member of the Supreme Court, the press made a big deal of the fact that she was a hispanic woman. The fact that she's a hispanic woman means nothing to me and it diminishes her accomplishments as a judge. Instead of being known for historic cases she presides over, the history books will undoubtedly focus on her gender and ethnicity.

Firsts are firs... [More]

Uncertainty is GREAT for Ideas

Blog post to follow...

Be Yourself! Unless...

Why the fuss over being yourself?


Ever since you were a kid, you've been told that the most important thing in life is to always be yourself? While that sound great on paper. I wish some people would be somebody else.

In other words, if you're a great person, be yourself at all costs, but if you're a real jerk... I'd rather you be somebody else, preferably somebody nicer.

Ideas Start With... Problems!

How do I create a new idea each day?


People often ask me how I manage to come up with a new idea each day for my blog and YouTube Channel. The simple truth is, I don't start off by thinking of ideas... I start by looking for problems.

That's because it's pretty easy finding problems. In fact, I think it's safe to assume we all face at least a few new problems each day, so I start by writing down the problems, then thinking of solutions to those problems and before you know it... ideas are born!

The Digital Ghetto

Because of algorithms, we all live in a Digital Ghetto.


When most of us think of the word "Ghetto", we tend to think of the modern interpretation of a urban slum, but the original meaning has nothing to do with any particular race or community. It was a bit more general.

According to Wikipedia:
"A ghetto is a part of a city in which members of a minority group live, especially because of social, legal, or economic pressure. The term was originally used in Venice to describe the part of the city to which Jews were restricted and segregated. The term has been applied in various contexts."

In essence, it's the segregation of a group of people apart from the mainstream because of "social, legal, economic" reasons.

So how does this relate to Big Data and Algorithms? Everyth... [More]

Who Cares About Tom Brady's Jersey?

What's the big deal about Tom Brady's lost Jersey?


The biggest story to come out of the 2017 Super Bowl was Tom Brady's missing jersey. Somebody stole his game worn jersey? Really? Who cares?

As I mentioned in a video I posted last year, I find the entire premise of giving value to things like that to be pretty silly. To me, objects are objects. None of them are special, especially if they are mass produced items that one particular person held in their hands at one point in time. The very notion that those are any different than any of the countless duplicates that were made is simply strange.

I can picture myself trying to explain this to somebody from another culture, or even another planet... "Here's 1000 football jerseys. They're all the same, except this one, be... [More]

The On-Demand Generation

Millennials don't know what it's like to live in a world of patience and anticipation.


Technology has given the Generation Gap a new meaning. Today's Millennials grew up in an era where just about everything they do these days is on-demand.

Not only can they play their favorite songs, movies or TV shows in a matter of seconds, but they can jump directly to their favorite parts. When I grew up, there were only about 7 TV channels, which means we all watched pretty much the same shows at the same time. If you missed your favorite movies or shows, there was nothing you could do about it, unless the networks decided to play them again a few months ago. Classic movies like The Wizard of Oz played only once a year, but most never played more than once... And we accepted that... [More]

What if... You Knew You Couldn't Fail?

Is Fear Holding You Back?


One of the biggest fears in life is the fear of failure. It keeps us from doing the things we've always wanted to do because we fear the consequences of failure. We stick to our comfort zone and play if safe, but in the back of our mind we wish we had the courage to step out of that comfort zone and really enjoy our deepest fantasies.

What if you knew you COULDN'T Fail? Would that help you do the things that you're afraid of?


The truth is, if you really think about the things you fear most, you may find that the chances of failure aren't as bad as you think. In fact, you even discover that for some things, failure isn't all that bad either.



How much do you love your job?


Here's something to think about. Imagine a world where every job had the exact same salary. We do our jobs and at the end of the week, everyone's paycheck is the same. Doctors, lawyers, street cleaners and sewer cleaners earn the same income.

If this were the case... Would YOU still be doing the same job?


If you answered no, it probably means you gave up one what you REALLY wanted to do, just because it didn't pay as much as you wanted.

It's not an easy question, because somewhere between our youth, when we didn't think about money, and our adult life, most of us abandoned those ideas and followed an entirely different path.

There is no right or wrong answer. Everyone has to make a living, so choosing a profession based on inc... [More]

What is REALLY... REAL?

What makes some ordinary objects better than other ones?


A new baseball costs about $10, but if a famous baseball player even touches the ball, the price goes up. If the same baseball player takes it out of the box, signs it, then puts it back in the box, the price goes up even more, because the signature proves they touched it. Take to another level, even if they don't "touch" the ball, but simply hit it with their bat, the price goes up even more, especially if it was an important home run.

The funny thing about it is that in each and every case, all you really have is a the same $10 baseball, and some kind of magical feeling that comes with knowing the baseball is somehow transformed from being ordinary, to something completely different and valuable, simply because you b... [More]
