3 Ideas from Me


I failed to get this weekly newsletter out via email on Wednesday in the United States. I’ve been doing a great job at being consistent for well over a year with a Wednesday release. I’m a little bummed.

Sometimes things don’t always go as planned. I planned to get this released on Wednesday evening in the U.S.; however, it didn’t happen.


If I were to start beating myself up with negative thoughts, doubt, and other critical words, I could become subject to the All or Nothing Culture. This culture says we must be perfect, “All in,” and when we fail, we quit. We see this often with diets, exercise routines, and other activities.

Fortunately, I do not follow the All or Nothing Culture. I follow my advice that Something is Everything. We have healthy habits and routines that are good for us, our families, coworkers, and departments. When we subscribe to the Something is Everything Culture, we don’t stop when we hit a road block or a setback.


We push forward, knowing that when we do Something, we continue the habit. This is a critical piece to understand and accept. For example, when you don’t feel like going to the gym to exercise, doing Something is Everything because it continues the habit.

I keep this concept close to my heart. I accept the setbacks and look for ways to do Something. Often, I am surprised that my setbacks are often a set-up for Something great. By the way, I just made a wonderful realization as I close out this letter. It might be Thursday in your time zone, but it is still Wednesday in Baker Island.😊

Something is Everything!
