Cassie Tucker once again joins me as host and draws a parallel we can all learn from. As a former park ranger, I found that every park has two types of stories it tells: learned stories and earned stories.

Learned stories are the stories that we tell. It is the information provided to guests; the content we choose for them to learn and use to enhance their experience. Earned stories are the stories they discover for themselves whil...

I keep five notecards on my desk, each with a quote to help me keep my focus where it needs to be. 

I replace two or three of those cards each year with new quotes. When I start the year with new quotes, I do an episode of The Jody Maberry Show with Jeff Noel to share the five quotes. 

Here are my five quotes for 2023:

"Trade your expectations for appreciation." - Tony Robbins

"Do your best and forgive yourself." - Admiral Payne

Most of us use the New Year to set new goals or resolutions. Lee Cockerell recently told me something that changed how I view the beginning of the year. 

"The New Year begins every morning" - Lee Cockerell

If something is good enough to start doing at the beginning of the year, it is good enough to begin on March 5th or a random Tuesday. 

If something is enough of a problem, you should stop doing it as New Year's resolution; you sh...
