The Beauty of Rest

My entire life I’ve heard messages of go, go, go. Get this thing done and start that. Maybe even while you’re finishing that one up get a jump start on the next. I remember even as a kid being taught to clean bathrooms in a certain order that would allow maximum efficiency and no wastedContinue reading “The Beauty of Rest”

Serene Routine, Chaos Without

Picture it, the Hirn household after 5 days of winter break, painful. One child is jumping off of a couch asking for candy. Another is screaming in a timeout because he threw his brother’s new toy and when sternly told to go get it and give it back he responded with a, “Why don’t youContinue reading “Serene Routine, Chaos Without”

A Year In Review

This week is magical, the week between Christmas and New Year’s. You’re fresh off the high of seeing the wonder, the twinkle, the joy, and the appreciation of Christmas on the faces of everyone you come in contact with. Whether it is face-to-face, over a family Zoom call, or, best of all, on the facesContinue reading “A Year In Review”

It’s the Most Craziest Time of the Year

People always seem to need things by the end of the week and if that comes up on Monday cool beans, but when it comes up on Friday that’s just a gentler way of saying, make my need your top priority and get it doneContinue reading “It’s the Most Craziest Time of the Year”

If you ever have the opportunity to build your own home I highly encourage it. I am currently in the process of building our third, and final, home (fourth actually if you include that my parents built ours when I was kid).

The reason I played all of the sports and on paper sound like Amy Athletic is because our school was soContinue reading “Practice How You’ll Play”

Make them Thirsty

A lot of what I do centers around continuous improvement. I lead groups of people who are singularly focused on their own niche way of making things better. Whether that be an improvement to a form that allows them to be compliant with a regulation, identifying areas of improvement in quality handling of a situation,Continue reading “Make them Thirsty”

Make a Bigger Circle

How frequently do you all play farm? No, just me? Ok well then allow me to let you in on this riveting game that is played in my house at least once a day every single day of the week. Playing farm is when you drag out every single truck, trailer, tractor, combine, grain bin,Continue reading “Make a Bigger Circle”

Harness Your Passion

When was the last time you were passionate about something, anything really? Maybe you’re living your passion right now and that would be amazing but lets be honest, most of us have to look back a few years to find a time that we had a true passion project, if we can find one atContinue reading “Harness Your Passion”
