Leadership Quotes Of The Day

“Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership.”

Colin Powell

Are you running from the problems of others or are you cherishing their faith in you today?

  2. E-mail Michael a copy of your receipt. You can simply forward a copy of the receipt from your online retailer to If you buy a physical copy from a local retailer, scan the receipt and e-mail it to the same address. It’s that simple.
  3. Confirm your e-mail address. I don’t want to inadvertently spam anyone, so I follow a strict, double opt-in e-mail list procedure. I will reply to your e-mail and ask you to confirm your address before I proceed further. (Actually, this is automated, but you get the idea.)

That’s it!

I hope you all enjoy this book and it’s free resources as much as I am!


4 Hour Body – My Favorite Meal

So Tim Ferriss discusses eating the same few meals over and over and over again in his book “The 4 Hour Body.”  But this can be a horrible, if not deal breaking, thing to do if the meals aren’t that good tasting.  I’ve been eating this “slow-carb” type of stuff for a while so I’ve had some time to come up with some meals that I happen to like.  This one is my favorite.

I call this delectable meal, Italian Pork Loin and Guacamole with Black Beans and Salad.  Below is the recipe:



Italian Seasoned Pork Loin – I purchase this item pre-marinated in the meat section of my local HEB

Can of Black Beans – preferably organic and low sodium

Salsa – Again purchased pre-made in the HEB produce section

Guacamole – guess what, pre-made.  I used Wholly Guacamole, 100 calorie packs

Salad – Organic Baby Spring Mix

Salad Dressing – Newman’s Own Lite Balsalmic Vinaigrette.



  1. I grilled my pork loin Medium Rare.  To make it cook quicker cut it into 1/2 inch slices.  It’s about a pound of meat so cook it all and save the rest for later.
  2. Warm the beans in a pot.
  3. Cut the pork loin into bite size pieces with a pair of scissors.  This is a bodybuilding trick.  It saves so much time to just quickly cut it all up before you eat.
  4. Squeeze half the package of Guacamole on top of the pork.  This is for the 100 calorie packs.  If you just cut a small hole in the corner, you’ll be able to squeeze out all the air and seal the package with a clip to keep your guac from oxidizing.
  5. Serve yourself some beans with a tablespoon of salsa on top
  6. Serve yourself some salad with 1 tablespoon of dressing.
  7. Total cook time was 20 minutes mostly because of the pork.  But once you’ve got it cooked, just place the rest in some tupperware.  If you’ve used your scissors and pre-cut the meat before saving it you can make this meal in less than 5 minutes using the microwave.
