It’s Always Sunny Above the Clouds…


“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”

– Mark Twain

This is a site dedicated to the art of constructive and deliberate living…  I’ve been asked for years to jot down my random thoughts, antics, and musings; this is that place.  This will be a journey we take together and will also chronicle my years to be later passed along to my children.  I’ve been the fortunate benefactor of some very unique situations in life, most of which will be described here, and this site will document the delicate dance between one’s life and work.

Why this title for an inaugural post?  On a recent business trip, a colleague sitting next to me looked out over the horizon at 36,000 ft. and noted, “it’s always sunny above the clouds.”  How true is that?  Above the clouds, life is clear; still.  The sun drowns out the darkness.  It alters mood and faith and reminds you anything is possible. Anything.

I have a bad habit of chatting it up with the people sitting around me on airplane for years; I’m that guy.  On another cross country jaunt a fellow passenger, who happened to be a pilot, reminded me, in it’s most basic form, that a plane is off course 99% of the time.  The only reason an aircraft can leave New York in the morning and land on a dime in Hawaii in the afternoon is because of multiple micro course corrections throughout the duration of the flight.  So is true of life.  Our journey is never a straight un-interrupted one but the key is beginning with the end in mind.  Planning is way underrated.  Goals; the same thing.  These are just some of the topics we’ll cover here.  I’m no expert in any of this but I am an expert in my own story and that’s what I’ll be sharing with you; what’s worked for me.  So buckle up… we’ve been cleared for takeoff.
