The past 24 hours of this Hero On A Mission (HOAM) was a blast!
I’m currently coaching two people through the HOAM course on Business Made Simple University.

It is SO…MUCH…FUN!
Helping people see what’s most important to them, and then guiding them to create a Life Plan to get after it, is so rewarding to me.
I am amazed by how much clarity people receive when they write out an aspirational Obituary for their life.
That is followed by summarizing it all with a Story Summary that’s two or three sentences long.
That one-two punch is catalytic for gaining clarity!
The reason is you are encouraged to ask and then answer questions like:
- What’s most important to me?
- Who’s most important to me?
- Why should anyone care about my aspirational life?
If you take the time to ask and answer those questions—a fuzzy vision for your life takes on 20-20 clarity.
It reminds me of being a near-sighted fourth grader who got his first pair of glasses.
I remember it was a cloudy, cold spring day in Minot, ND when I walked into a room with large windows with trees outside.
I was there with my mom to pick up my first pair of glasses.
The moment I put those glasses on and turned my head to look out the window was so magical I remember it over 40 years later.
The tree branches all of a sudden had buds on them!
The words on the building across the street (where my future wife would eventually attend 9th-10th grade) were now legible.
My life changed, because now I saw clearly.
That’s What It’s Like
I’m learning that’s what happens when you become a HOAM!
All of a sudden, you see clearly the desired destination of your life.
That’s what enables you to reverse engineer a life of deep meaning and purpose.
I love being able to be a guide for people who are brave enough, and wise enough, to invest time in their future.
My HOAM Life Plan has done so much for me.
