In just a few days, we’ll be ripping that August page off the calendar and tossing that bad boy in the waste-paper-basket (yes, I love saying that: “waste-paper-basket” — I know, I’m weird). Here’s your final-friday in August wrap-up newsletter for Higher Thoughts.

It was a crazy month for yours truly — I turned, well, older… My daughter turned 3 a day later (yep, she’s a threenager now). She’s effectively stolen my birthday. I barely get gifts anymore. Not that I’m bitter or anything. (Although I did get these pretty sweet skis — yes, at the ripe old age of 37, and after living 30 minutes from Tahoe for almost 20 years, I’m actually learning to do this. Insurance? Check.)

Other than that, all’s well. September is one of my favorite months because it means we’re gearing up for my favorite season — fall (and winter, respectively)! Cooler nights and longer sleeves are both great things in my book. For a Leo, I’m not much of a summer guy.

Okay… Enough small talk. Here’s the nitty-gritty from Higher Thoughts in case you missed anything…

Fellow Medium-ers I’m vibing with right now

I don’t consume as much content as I’d like (although I’m getting better at it), but from what I do, here’s a couple fellow Medium-ers I’m really loving right now…

  • T.O. Weller is one of the most heartfelt writers I know
  • Hassan S. Ali is hilarious
  • Loving what Jack Coyne’s doing with his daily musings
  • Update: Markus Almond (a recommendation from a previous Higher Thoughts letter) has moved his whole blog to Medium (one of my favorite blogs in the world that I’ve been following for some time now). Welcome to Medium, Markus!

Free private coaching giveaway

If you’re an email subscriber, a few days ago, you received an email from me (actually, because of my snafu with Google Forms, you received 3 emails… whoops) with a survey that, if you completed, will make you eligible to win (drumroll, please…)


If you haven’t yet subscribed via email, you can subscribe here (yes, I do email my posts every day — just to be up front about it). I’ll be sending out a final reminder with the survey link (and a chance to win) on Sunday morning and the two winners will be awarded on Monday.

If private coaching is something you’d like to discuss further, learn more about the kind of work I do here.

Whelp… That’s it for me. Until next time, think higher and we’ll catch ya tomorrow on Higher Thoughts.

As Ever,
