There’s a lot of talk about “ideology” these days, and it’s usually not in a good way. 

But what about YOUR ideology? 

Do you know who you are?

Before I go on, ideology is simply a creed, culture, dogma, outlook, philosophy, theory, or view. And let’s not forget ideas, principles, and tenants.

At the end of the day, an ideology is what you stand for in this world. And, if you do it well, it’s also how other people know what you stand f...

If you were to ask my wife if I was always a happy and positive person, she would likely say, "Hmm… it's complicated… but yes."

As a proud high-maintenance man who has never met a conversation I didn't want to see how deep we could go, I would have to agree. It's complicated. But, the answer is yes. I'm happy every day of the week. Not because I was born that way. Nope. As my Italian friends would say, "I...

I have to admit that I get in trouble because some of the Scott logic that comes out of my mouth doesn’t sit well with lots of folks these days - and they let me know. 

One of the biggest comments…

“You seem like such a positive guy, and then it’s like something clicks in your head and go negative and ruin my day.” 

While I don’t think I ever go negative, I’ve heard that many, many times. 

Here’s the thing…

It would be easy for me to ge...

“Please! Can somebody stop the world? I want to get off!”

Okay. Just for you, I pressed the magic button, and the world stopped. 

Whatcha gonna do now?

If you don’t have an answer, there’s no need to freak out. It’s common for people to get slowed down, think about what their life could be like, and I have no idea.

But let’s say you are one of the few who decide the time has come to turn directly into the challenge?

Many years ago, I ad...

When will you get yourself to do what you say you want to do? 

More people than you know lose sleep over that question. If that sounds like something you have experienced, you’re not alone. 

Almost everybody begins their journey when a thought pops into their mind. Then, day-to-day life keeps them busy, and they spend frustrating months fixin’ to get ready. You know, starting to prepare… so you can begin to do… so you can do… and say...

When I was a teenager, I was a weekend moviegoer, and it was the age of Rocky, Star Wars, and Jaws. Besides, with only three channels on television, getting out of the house was the top item on my to-do list.

As a kid with big dreams, it was easy for me to slip into the fantasy world of films and let my mind run for a couple of hours. By the end of the film, I was always excited to get on with life and become like the folks I watche...

I woke up this morning with an incredible zest to expand my feeling of gratefulness. Well, there is not so much to expand as to recognize all the things that I am grateful for but haven’t thought about lately.

That’s the thing about living in a fast-paced world where our daily activities, big and small, fly by and are quickly forgotten. It’s always been that way. There is nothing new in the world. That got me thinking about one of m...

My friend Louis Gates introduced me to his 9-Year Life Cycle to understand how we progress through life.  

Cycles begin at birth and advance every 9 years and go like this:

Year 1: You decide what you want and start asking for it.  

Year 2: As the pieces come together, you narrow your focus.

Year 3: The resources you need begin to arrive.  

Year 4: You find yourself moving toward your purpose in life.

Year 5: re-evaluation begins. Toss o...

Many years ago, a friend passed along a pearl of wisdom that has served me well.

Larry was a mentor. I was an eager young man who wanted everything now. I'll never forget sitting in the chair in front of his desk discussing all the ways I would dominate the world during my life. I still remember the look in his eyes as he pondered what advice he was going to give. That's when Larry said -

As we enter the holiday season, have you taken a few minutes to consider what you would like to do in 2022? 

Getting started now will allow you to relax and enjoy the next few months. 

It begins by asking yourself, "What can I do?” But this time of year, we need to reach deeper by asking, "What can I do in a year?"

Most people overestimate what they can do in a few weeks. They underestimate what they can do in a year. The ...

People have always sought change for themselves, their life, or the world. 

There is a constant truth if you want to change; you must change before anything else changes.

Many intelligent folks agree -

Mahatma Gandhi said, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

Leo Tolstoy, “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”

What about Albert Einstein?  

“The world, as we have created, is a process...

Many have said, "Life is a marathon, not a sprint." 

But what happens when you find yourself doing both at the same time? 

If you've been living on this planet for any length of time, you've figured out life is a long game made of day-to-day sprints. 

If you want a big bank balance, you make small deposits over time.

If you want to lose weight, you make small reductions over time.

What do I want to be when I grow up? 

The first time you ask yourself that question is when you are very young - if you ever asked it act all. Frankly, somebody else usually asks you, and you probably didn't have an answer and just took off running with this thing called life. 

And then it happens —

Forty or fifty years later, people start asking themselves that question again after a family and career. The lucky ones don't co...

Painting Your Way to Success

My wife and I are settling into our new home, and she has assigned herself the job of painting every inch in the house. Not because we couldn’t hire somebody to do the job. Strangely, it’s because she loves to paint. 

I’ll admit that I’ve felt a little guilty leaving her with a rolling brush and a couple of gallons while I find something more interesting to do - which is pretty much anything. Still, las...

Relative Time Management

In my entire life, I've always found it interesting that there never seems to be enough time in the day. Still, most days, everything seems to get done. If it doesn't, the world didn't come to an end, and I survived to check off another item from my to-do list tomorrow.

Leaders Look For Conflict

I admit the title, "Leaders Look For Conflict," might a little over-the-top. But I know that you want to be a better leader. I also know that you hate and don't want anything to do with conflict - especially since I can hear you saying —

"Why can't we all get along?"

I get it. Saying the word "No" is hard enough. Saying "Yes" when others agree or disagree with your c...

Stoic Happiness

I'm a fan of Stoic Philosophy. While it may be over 2,000 years old, its practicality is still useful.

These rules to live by will help you have a happier life:

1. If you're going to learn and succeed, be humble. There is always someone smarter, more successful, and wiser.  

2. Find the right scene. Choose your friends and situations. If you want to rise in life, you can't allow yourself to be held down ...
