HANDLING THE HEAT IN LIFE

I’ve been visiting an Infrared Sauna at Glow Sauna Studios often over the last few years. Unlike a traditional sauna, the Infrared Lights essentially cook you from the inside…It’s HOT. Typically, the temperature in my cabin is 165-170 degrees. Like most people, the heat starts getting to me if I’m in there long enough. The same thing is true in life. Once the adversity and stress start to hit, we often hit a panic mode ...

LEADERSHIP IN DEFEAT

I love march madness because I love watching a Cinderella team shock the world. This year Saint Peter's (a team, I honestly had never heard of) shocked the world by doing what no other 15 seed had ever done..make it to the elite 8. The magic run consisted of defeating the always-elite Kentucky Wildcats, Murray State, and Purdue (all ranked far ahead of Saint Peter's). What impressed me after this weekend's loss to North Carolina ...

ALWAYS BE TWEAKING

I look back at BaylorBarbee.com from almost 20 years ago...before the days of social media, you had to create your own buzz. I was a member of the Baylor University Football team and was looking for ways to interact with fans...I taught myself how to make a website in my free time. I look at where the site is all these years later, (and every iteration of the site between then and now) and I ...

BLACK FRIDAY FRIENDS

Black Friday, a day full of being overwhelmed with ads, rushing to buy things we don’t need, and fighting crowds over the latest and greatest gadgets. Sounds fun huh? Though many dread the lines and crowds of this annual day, we need to be more concerned about the Black Friday friends and co-workers in our lives. Just as the hype of Black Friday can drain your bank account, the harmful effects of Black Friday friends ...

HOW TO BECOME THE YOU THAT YOU WANT TO BE

During a family breakfast outing recently, Britton and I were talking to my then 4-year-old nephew about his workout regime. My brother asked him what he was doing, and Carter said he wasn’t doing it anymore. Britton asked why, and Carter responded with, “I didn’t like it anymore, so I Deleted it out of my mind,” and went back to eating his pancakes. I didn’t like it, so I Deleted it from my mind. So ...

HOW TO CLOSE THE BIG DEAL

We place so much emphasis on the BIG Close, the BIG Deal, the BIG Client as if that one BIG opportunity can change everything. Sometimes it can. However, what we neglect is far more important to long-term success than the occasional BIG close. We all want the home run, but it’s the base hits in life that give us consistent victories. To put it in perspective, it’s safe to say that Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball ...

3 LEADERSHIP TIPS FOR LIVING A LIFE OF EXCELLENCE

I’m a big believer in excellence…so much that I wrote a book “The Idea of Excellence,” in 2014. It was written on the belief that if success is measured by how you compare to others, then excellence is how you compare to your potential or capacity. Excellence, therefore, is the true test of character, work ethic, and ultimately defines your legacy. The other day, I was talking to my brother Britton about building successful corporate cultures ...

5 BUSINESS LESSONS LEARNED FROM RAPPING

I was 24 years old and had just finished my Master’s Degree from Baylor University.  I had no job, nor did I own a resume because Plan B was always to Make Plan A work…and my plan A?... well I didn’t have one.  I just knew I wanted to work for myself.  Yet I had bills to pay and dreams to live so I stuck with the only thing I knew how to do…Hustle… through ...

50 MILE RACE STRATEGY

Today is my brother, Britton’s birthday and I was reflecting on my favorite memory from this past year and it was when he and I completed the Hoka OneOne Rocky 50 50 mile trail run race.  It took 13 hours and 49 minutes in 24-degree weather. The question we have received all year is “HOW DID YOU RUN 50 MILES?” The answer is quite simple, but the same strategy we used to run 50 miles ...
