Tunnel Vision

I wrote this many years ago and yet it still rigs true

Jimmy Perez

Most of my life, I’ve had a friend called, tunnel vision. I say, friend because it’s always had a positive effect on me. Negative by nature since its been mostly in a car. Never in my life would I’ve imagine that it has been a great thing. Once I was blind and now I see.

Lately, I’ve been wondering why I love fast cars so much? Why I like speed? As I grow responsible and as I try to look at the foundation of everything, I’ve really been stumped by those two questions. Recently, I sat down with my father in law and asked him why he loved the speed. Great person to ask, since he has a ten second hotrod with all the bells and whistles, of course for track raising only.

He didn’t seem to really have the same questions. He simply loves it, therefore he does it…

Who are we?

Everyone we come in contact with throughout our lives leaves something behind in us. Essentially, we're a little bit of everyone we spend any kind of time with. This is a very interesting thought and a very true one at that. Scary as well. Now, I know there's some folks we completely disagree about but... Continue Reading →

How? You just Do it!

I often enjoy reading through others journey looking for hints that may help my own. Recently I found the burning questions from a gentleman disturbing. I can't recall exactly what the questions were, but they were along the lines of "how do I wake up early? How do I go workout? How do I such... Continue Reading →

Old year New year

Get Healthy

Such a vague statement right? This was my goal for 2019. Not much thought got put into it but just the above statement. I figured I would figure it out as I went. Began with a very strict vegan diet for the first two months. That was fun.... Now what? Working out, yay I haven't... Continue Reading →

Influence by Example

We've all heard the term of leading by example but after a few different conversations this past week I toyed with this term. It feels stronger than just leading. Then again words are just that, words. Throughout my career as a leader it has always been common sense to me to be a great example.... Continue Reading →

Big Brother Leadership Approach

I dug everywhere trying to find a leadership style similar to my own. Although I found many golden nuggets I could not find exactly what I was looking for. For lack of any term found, I'm going to call it the Big Brother Leadership approach. Just like it sounds, the style is very much like... Continue Reading →

Failure is a Must

For many years I've been working on me hardcore. I've heard we must fail a heck of a lot before we can succeed. I'm extremely lucky and very positive so I hadn't really gotten in toon with this whole failure thing. Then I began to really look into it. Wow, I've really mastered this whole... Continue Reading →

Namasté

I loved when I 1st learned this concept many years ago. It is what many people in the east say internally when they bow to you. To me I thought they were all just saying hi. I'm huge in seeing people's greatness in them even if they don't see it in themselves. This concept explains... Continue Reading →

60 day challenge

30 days into my 60 day challenge and I feel terrific. Last year I did a 30 day juice reboot. 4 to 5 juices a day. I felt very clear, focused and healthy. The 30 day challenge gave me a great momentum in health for my mind body and spirit. I thought about doing a... Continue Reading →

2019 Goals

Success is a funny thing. My 2018 new year's resolutions were pretty far fetched: Drink five fresh veggy juices a day with no food for 30 days. Move out of Florida. Begin a new job. Work to live, rather than live to work. Work out more than I did in 2017. Meditate most days. I... Continue Reading →

The Chase

Do we just need something to chase? At one point in my life my dream was to be exactly where I'm at. Have a family, live somewhere nice and be truly happy. Success! However I feel the need for progression and so I have new dreams to chase after. Now my conundrum is, am I... Continue Reading →

Death… The truth

What a subject... At 41 I have dealt with more than my share of death. I've lost my father, grandparents, uncle's, friends, and many had no business leaving so early ... In my opinion. Death is inevitable. We all need to come to terms with this fact. Not to be cliche but we absolutely need... Continue Reading →

Life doesn’t get easier

I hear folks telling others (usually younger) that things get easier. I dare say they don't. I believe we get better at dealing with the situations thrown at us. I believe we set ourselves up in a position where what gets thrown at us doesn't destroy us... Most of the time. To tell our youth... Continue Reading →

Life is a funny thing

Life is a funny thing. Ups downs sideways, simple, complexed, joyous and painful. How we see life makes all the difference. What analogy do you have about life? Life is a game, war, awful, unfair, amazing, beautiful, a gift? Ponder the above... How you speak to yourself is extremely important. I dare say it is... Continue Reading →
