Confidence

By Brett Stewart

That’s Eddie, 45 pounds of awesome and a great way to get you to open this blog. If you look closely, you’ll notice he’s wearing a field training collar. He wasn’t too happy the first time he wore it – Eddie doesn’t really care for change – and he was even less happy the first…

What It Takes

By Brett Stewart

I’m afraid I’m not good enough; not a good enough Christ-follower, husband, father, or coach to my clients. Maybe I’m crazy to share that publicly, but most of you, if you’re honest, struggle with the same feelings of inadequacy, especially when it comes to leading the people in your business. But I have good news…

Minimum Effective Dose

By Brett Stewart

My father, a retired pediatrician, was an amazing doctor. One of the things that made him great is that he’s a big believer in the “minimum effective dose.” Minimum-effective-dose practitioners ask this question: “What is the least amount of medication or other external intervention required to treat the issue, so the body can heal itself?”…

On one side, he heard the sounds of battle; a battle that was at a stalemate, because barbed wire, ditches, and rifles had rendered horse-mounted cavalry useless. On the other side he heard, and then saw, a…

The Grinch with No Process

By Brett Stewart

Everyone knows about the Grinch, that angry, green guy who hated Christmas with a passion. What most people don’t know is why he had this disdain for Christmas, and that’s what I’m going to tell you about today. You see, the Grinch wasn’t always a yuletide hater; he was once an entrepreneur with a promising…

Don’t Be a Sisy(phus)

By Brett Stewart

In Greek Mythology, Sisyphus was the king of Corinth and a generally sorry guy. Famous not for his leadership but for his deceitfulness and trickery, he was kind of like Richard Nixon with superpowers. He avoided the consequences of his misdeeds by twice cheating death, but King Zeus eventually caught up with him and took…

Training with Power

By Brett Stewart

In the 1956 edition of the Giro d’Italia, Fiorenzo Magni crashed on the 12th day of racing and broke his collarbone. Refusing to abandon the race, he wrapped his shoulder with elastic bandages and continued on, but he had a problem: to generate power on a bicycle you have to pull up on the handlebars,…
