Get Everyone Kicking Their Buts With You

Join me every day for an inspirational Kick That But — that’s right, let’s kick those buts out of our vocabulary!



  1. I like his quote on making mistakes. Its too easy to not do anything and therefore not make mistakes.

    • I agree .. and it’s too easy to ‘coast’ and not grow – and avoid mistakes.

      What I really like about this quote, is that it helps you see that it IS OK to be making mistakes.

      For the longest time, I kicked myself for making mistakes and just this past year – after starting to push through some ‘feared’ challenges .. I started to realize – hey! it’s okay … no biggy .. we all make them. You may look like an ‘idiot’ in the moment .. but so what .. if you learn from it, and move past it – you’re all the better for it.


      BTW – I am still interested in your HULK – how to deal with them post 😉
