Because my friend Colt  Clark (who I told you about in my email back on April  12 and copied below) and his kids will be on the ELLEN show tomorrow!

Just a few highlights of the Colt and the Kids last 50 days…
  • The Virtual Tip Jar I set up for Colt has $27,110 in it already (and thank you to those of you found Joy in Colt and the Quarantine Kids videos and gave something personally);
  • Colt has taught his kids a new song each day— recorded it that day, and put them up on FaceBook and YouTube;
  • Many of those videos have gone viral– one reaching 10 million views;
  • Personal notes have been sent to Colt and the Kids from Mickey Dolenz (of the Monkees) and Pete Townshend (of the Who);
  • And he has received notes from all over the World– from Bolivia to Vancouver, from Texas to the UK– from folks who wanted to thank Colt and his kids for bringing THEM and THEIR KIDS some joy during a time when they needed it;
  • One gentlemen referred to them as “an American National Treasure”.

TODAY OF ALL DAYS: RISE.
“The little things are the big things, 
when the big thing is love.“–Dean Minuto 
 
FIND ONE PERSON YOU CAN HELP THIS WEEK.
That is the mustard seed. If you know the parable?
— Or as my Devon called it “the ketchup nut”– 
(but that’s a story for another day)
 
Someone needs to hear from you.
It is how we manifest LOVE in this world.
And it is how we are all going to get through this.

Maybe you can share this video with them?

I am fairly certain that this video will give you Joy–

When he says, “It’s a Big Deal, Dino…”

I love when John Dame says, “It’s a Big Deal, Dino.”
Because it means he sees that I have connected with my True North (in his words). Connected with my Purpose.
 
WHAT IF THERE WAS A BUTTON you could push to CONNECT WITH YOUR PURPOSE?
…you’d HIT THAT BUTTON, right?
 
You can make a difference AND make a living, when you live and work connected with your purpose. John Dame has done it– and for over a decade has helped other CEOs and their Teams do the same.

2 VIDEOS! Enough (of this s#it). GET YOUR CONQUER ON.

At some point you are going to face something that wants to completely crush you. (You might be facing it right now.)

Whether it’s a Brain Stroke or Russia that is trying to destroy you– there is  story there… that story can change you and it can also change the world if you are willing to share it. 

In the words of Rabbi Steve Leder, “We all walk through Hell, the point is to not come out empty handed.” 

(Now THAT is a great quote– get out a pen and write that one down.)

Check out the video we just uploaded of my conversation today with Kirby Martzall– every single time I talk to Kirby his insights blow my mind… this is a guy who basically said to a massive brain stroke, “Yeah, I see what you’ve done to me— now let me show you what I am going to do with it.

Notice… look closely…

Notice… look closely and you begin to notice the Patterns and Possibility in every day (in every situation, in every life). 

Patterns and Possibility are separate things. 
Never confuse the two. 

Look for the Patterns– the human brain is always looking for patterns.  See the Possibility– info gets to your brain 30x faster through the eyes than through the ears. 

ASK THREE QUESTIONS and MAP OUT your answers:
1. What IS? (What do you know? What don’t you know?)
2. So What? (What do you want? What do you fear?)
3. What’s Next? (What are you going to do? What will you ask others to do?)

Some Scenarios are more PROBABLE than others. 
None are PERMANENT.
Advance, ever Onward.
Cautious but Confident.
Each Day, Better.

Register Now if you would like to join me and my friend Kirby Martzall on today’s webcast at 1PM EST as we discuss.

His answer changed my life…

WHAT IF THERE WAS A BUTTON you could push to CHANGE YOUR LIFE? …you’d HIT THAT BUTTON, right?
If you’re lucky, maybe once or twice in your life, you’re going to encounter an idea so powerful in its implication that it changes everything you do– and fundamentally changes the way you think.
 
Some of us are Seekers of such ideas.
On the morning of Tuesday, Oct 8th, 2019 at a CEO EVENT I greeted my friend Kirby Martzall and asked him a question… Kirby has been a professional musician for decades and for 17 years has been a Vistage CEO Chair– coaching dozens of executives every month… and that morning I asked what it had been like for him to try and play the guitar again after surviving and recovering from a brain shattering stroke–
