One of my $5 or less party tricks: @thatstastyorganic edible flowers. $3.99 at @wholefoods to be exact AND they can turn a standard cupcake into a celebratory affair. While on the topic of flowers, I wanted to share an observation. I recently placed a pansy in a planter box and within days the plant went from upright to tilting completely forward. The poor little pansy was stretching towards sunlight. Plants crave sun and water... That’s because they’ve never tasted queso 😉 Neither have they experienced disappointment, loss, anxiety... Being a human is simultaneously simple and complex. Luckily, we have many tools, in addition to queso ;), in our tool box to handle the complexities of life, and here’s one of them. My doctor recently reminded me that it’s easier to replace a habit/response mechanism than it is to eliminate one. The swap can be life-changing! That brings me to an even more powerful tool. Getting to the root. When we can identify why we are doing what we are doing, and address it, we can prevent other habits from cropping up. We, like my little pansy which is now basking in the sun on my patio, need strong roots to fully thrive. 😉 #perspective #growthmindset #growth #theoutsiders #inspiration #motivation #changeyourmindset #changeyourperspective #streetscene #anxietyfree #stressrelief #stressless #anxietymanagment #growthfactor #growthfactors #partytreats #partytricks #partytrick #edibleflowers #thatstasty #onwardandupward #htx #wholefoodsmarket #changeyourhabitschangeyourlife #cupcakesofinstagram #changeyourlife #fivedollarsorless ...

One of my favorite books is The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. In a pivotal scene between a “Greaser” and a “Soc” - two people on the opposite ends of the spectrum in many ways - the two come to the conclusion that maybe their lives aren’t so different. After all, they share the same sunset. “It’s rough all over, “ states one of the main characters. It sure is. It’s beautiful too. A few of my favorite sky shots in the stories. If you’re looking for an instant dose of peace, I highly recommend looking up. Fast and free. ❤️#alwayslookup #perspective #peace #sunset #whataburger #peacebewithyou #sunsetphotography #sunsets #growthmindset #growth #theoutsiders #inspiration #motivation #cloudsofinstagram #cloudscape #sky #skyshot #changeyourmindset #changeyourperspective #streetscene #streetscape #houston #htown #houstontx #hou #anxietyfree #stressrelief #stressless #anxietymanagment ...

Since I missed #nationalicecreamday, can we talk about bread? And I’m not talking about a crusty sourdough, or maybe I am. There’s a line in a popular prayer that goes something like this - “give us this day our daily bread.” A very specific, thoughtful, and practical ask. The prayer doesn’t say “give us bread with a side of caviar while on a yacht...” or “give us unlimited bread, like at Olive Garden.”

The simplicity of “one day at a time,” can be the remedy when anxiety and fear are being served up like unlimited bread sticks.

This post is inspired by a lesson I picked up at @ecclesia_houston last Sunday. I needed to hear it, so I thought I would share.

When business as usual is on hold, it might be time to go blue. Blue ocean, that is. Developed by Chan Kim & Renée Mauborgne, a blue ocean strategy is about creating a new market space. So, what’s a “red ocean” strategy? You guessed it. In a red ocean strategy, you are competing in an existing market. While it might seem risky in the midst of a pandemic, so much upheaval can be the perfect growth opportunity. There’s even a framework to help you create a blue ocean all your own. The four components of the framework are:

ELIMINATE – what industry-standard factors can you cut out?
RAISE - what factors should you amp up?
REDUCE – what factors can you tone down?
CREATE – what can you uniquely offer?

Here’s an example: Cirque du Soleil eliminated animal acts and star performers, raised the artistry and venue quality, reduced the “danger” and thrills, and created a fusion of theater and circus. They also raised the price as compared to a standard circus.

Ready for the two-fer? If you’re not ready to apply the blue ocean strategy to a business venture yet - I think this same framework can be applied personally.

Thanks to @quanticschool for the lesson on blue ocean strategy! @quanticschool is revolutionizing the MBA - mobile first, serious value, and a 12 month program. They also offer several introductory courses at no cost.
