Something Real & Fun & Inspiring & We Will Do It Together

Yesterday I watched a little bit of the Tom Cruise/Renee Zellweger movie, Jerry Maguire. There’s a scene where he’s leaving the company he helped build and I found that his words resonate with me and inspire me. The title of this post is a close paraphrase of what Jerry Maguire declared before he and Zellweger’s character left to start an exciting (and risky) new venture together.

Is there something you’ve been putting off?

Do you have an idea that you want to bring to the world, but you’ve never really sat down (or stood up) and simply started?

My friend, Fran Cannon, talks about your “dream drawer” where you’ve put your dream (or dreams) until you think the time is right for you to work on it.

NOW is the time.

Even if you’re wondering how you can move forward on it, NOW is the time!

If you have the slightest belief that you have something you want to do and you haven’t done it yet, I know of a website (and article) for you.

I just found this a couple days ago and finally read the article this morning.

I’m going for it.

Join me!

I want to help you make it happen!

Here’s how to get started:

1) Click on “Coach Zero’s Dream Survey” in the upper right (Start Creating Your Dream Now!) and let me know what you want to do. What is this dream you want to achieve? Give me a way to contact you and soon we’ll be talking about your dream/project over the internet and/or phone!

2) Visit this website & read this article AND subscribe to their email newsletter.
3 Steps To Stop Procrastinating

3) If you have skipped either Step 1 or Step 2, make sure you go back and complete both steps! Then if you want to get started even faster (DO IT NOW!), send me your phone number & email at Facebook.com/BigManWalking or Twitter.com/ACrowdFunder.

Let’s do something real & fun & inspiring – TOGETHER!

CSUSM looks at recreational surfing as viable form of fitness

Nice to have studies to back this up, but anecdotally, my brother was chubby until he started surfing about 40 years ago.

Surfing as a sport has seen a rapid growth in popularity since the 1960s. On any given day along San Diego County’s 70 miles of coastline, thousands of surfers may be spotted in the ocean, riding waves or patiently waiting for their next ride.

While most would agree that they surf for the pure enjoyment of catching waves, a new study at California State University, San Marcos (CSUSM) seeks to further substantiate the sport of surfing as a dynamic physical workout.

“Studies have been recently conducted with professional surfers in competition but there is limited research on the average person who surfs recreationally,” said Sean Newcomer, Assistant Professor of Kinesiology. “This study gives us an…

Meditation Gardens: Living Proof of Biophilia

I Love The Beauty Of Nature As Well.

Saltwater Speculations

I feel wonderfully blessed to have the Self Realization Fellowship Meditation Gardens right down the street from me in Encinitas. It is a magnificently serene enclave to relax and clear your mind, a vivd reminder of the sublime beauty of the natural world. I love meandering through the manicured gardens, gazing over the koi ponds, and taking in the stunningly beautiful view of Swamis beach.

Sometimes it is difficult to take a moment to truly relax, to focus on your spiritual wellbeing. However, when you are surrounded by botanical perfection and the soothing sounds of waves crashing onto the shore, you can’t help but be transported to a place of complete zen. Biophilia– which literally means “love of life or living systems”- is a term that defines the indistinct bond between human beings and living things, such as plants. It suggests that people are hard-wired to subconsciously seek a…
