JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 280 :: for the love of a warm gooey cookie

9 Oct

I love simply smart ideas. Things that are so simple they are brilliant. Game changers.

Like the power of a cookie — a WARM cookie.
What’s even better?  How about a WARM cookie that is delivered until 3am?

Meet  Insomnia Cookies:

My new favorite thing in Chicago.
Because it’s sweet and simple.

They were even delivered to our bowling alley tonight. Almost like magic gooey chocolate chip cookies appeared.

Which makes it brilliant (and YUMMY too!).

More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 279 :: kiss chicago hello

8 Oct

Since I had a little too much red eye for these blue eyes…I’m making this short and sweet in the Windy City. (Despite the ten gallons of coffee I have had to stay awake today.)

It was the most simple, easiest way for me to wake up and stay alert.

Which reminds me of something.

Keeping it simple has become my mantra and new way of thinking for peak performance (enjoy simple beauty pause right now). And in a few weeks I’m excited to announce that I will share with you a live interview with someone very special to me — the woman who taught me to think simple (and profound)  thoughts.

More on that soon… in the meantime, here’s what she always says: 

Keep. It. Simple. Sweetie.

More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 278 :: the sound of peak performance

7 Oct

I’m on the road. This time the bus. It has wifi and beats driving.

But it comes with some surprises. For one, it’s way easier to take photos on the drive when I’m not behind the wheel (and up higher). Check out the bird! 

For two, there is a dog on the bus (I didn’t know Greyhound allowed hounds).

And three, there is a really loud woman sitting across the aisle from me. I have headphones on and I can still hear her talking into her cell phone.  I have iTunes turned up on high and I can still tell you everything about her life.

But here’s the best part. I am listening to all the songs on my playlist that I haven’t listened to in a long time. I only stuck my earphones in because Miss Loudmouth’s conversation was driving me nuts and distracting me from my WIFI moment getting caught up on work.

Nothing a little volume can’t fix. And now things are rockin. Dare I say peak performance?

More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 277 :: packing, packing, packing we go

6 Oct

It’s packing night. Before I head off on my next trip… so tonight I just have a question.
What is the next trip you want to take? 

More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 276 :: sidewalk chalk – it’s all perspective

5 Oct

Today was the annual art walk here in Grants Pass… and over a little lunch break I took in the sights.

What I find most interesting is how different a perspective can make. For instance…. this…. 

Actually looks like THIS if you’re not looking at it the right way, from the right angle.

Just a good reminder that perspective matters.
(And talent is pretty amazing too.)

Speaking of… let’s just chalk this up to talent.

More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 275 :: small steps to greatness

4 Oct

The theme of “small” continues today. Somehow I landed on this video, and in it, Eckhart Tolle reminds us that greatness comes from small steps.

Here’s the direct link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7F7NQiiop0

Small is big.
Big is small… a lot of small steps that add up over time.

Tiny, tiny, tiny. Big, big, big.

More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 274 :: your one thing

3 Oct

In my year of Peak Performance I am learning a lot. And the more and more I learn, seek, discover, uncover, the more simplified the answer becomes.

In the words of Curly, it comes down to just one thing.
One Thing.

I mentioned the latest book on my reading list last night. And tonight I want to share the big AHA this book touts as the most important secret to success. It’s just one thing. Literally.

The One Thing concept isn’t just told by Curly on the Silver Screen, it’s proven with data and details and scientific studies. In the book, The One Thing, it’s also laid out in a very easy to understand and repeat formula. It also includes a worksheet and a plethora of exercises to do on your own.

If you’re looking for a book to read this weekend or maybe an answer to the secret of success dilemma, I highly recommend just one thing. The One Thing

More tomorrow. 


 {what’s your one thing?}

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 273 :: my new favorite book

The One Thing

More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 272 :: goodbye denver

1 Oct

It looks like a sunset but it was a sunrise. 

So much the same. One is a point of inspiration and the other a point of reflection. But both so similar.

As I reflect on my trip I am tired but happy. Also a good combination.

More tomorrow. 


 {do you have a moment to reflect?}

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 271 :: bolder boulder inspiration

30 Sep

Just a little inspiration from bolder Boulder, Colorado tonight.

Unfortunately this is the only photo I took because I was so inspired by just looking around at the mountains, the stores, the ambiance, the scenery of it all.

Which is really okay, because sometimes just being “there” is all that matters.

More tomorrow. 


 {where are you right now?}
