Banff Virtual Film Festival: A Most Excellent Diversion and Fuel for Inspiration

Jim Morrison and Hilaree NelsonSierra Nevada Mountains, CA. (Photo: Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity/Christian Pondella)   Within my pay-grade back in November 1993 was the cost of a weekend pass to the renowned Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival. Living in Northwest, Montana at the time, the drive north and across the border and up to Banff was a streamlined affair. Beyond my means, however, a warm place to stay near Banff. Even back then, the somewhat tony Canadian town had a...

How can you pay for your child’s education and invest in your own future? It’s tough to manage all your short, medium, and long-term financial goals at once.

NaNoWriMo 2020

As I’ve shared previously, one of my goals for this year is to write a novel. I’ve never done that before. It’s been a stretch goal of mine for a long time, and I’ve decided the time has come to finally do it. To move this goal forward in a more concrete way, I signed up for NaNoWriMo on Friday. NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, and it happens every year in the month of November. I’ve been aware of it for years, but this is the first time I’ve ever signed up for it.

The Escape: Talus Lodge

Photo: Noel Rogers. When we began this series, The Escape, we imagined it would be a slippery slope. It turns out the slope is blue-ice slick.

What Farm-Living Teaches Kids About Money

Farmers know how to get the most out of every dollar spent, as nothing goes to waste when you live on a farm — they even recycle manure!

Here are five lessons on frugality for kids from the farm. Money Lessons for Kids from the Farm 1. Recycling is essential. Food scraps get fed to cats, dogs, cows, and other...

Curiosity Goals

Maybe you have some goals for accomplishments you’d like to experience and enjoy. That’s great. Just be aware that you can also set goals for outcomes and experiences that you don’t even know if you’ll like. One of my current goals is to be able to walk 80 steps at a normal walking pace while comfortably holding my breath. That’s after exhaling and with only relaxed and shallow nose-breathing beforehand, not while holding in a deep breath. I started working on this goal last week, and current...

Some of us know all too well to expect the unexpected because accidents will occur sooner or later. That’s why an emergency fund is a key part of any financial plan.

Redefining Your Problems

By looking at a problem from multiple angles, you may spot a creative solution you hadn’t considered before. But another approach is to reframe the way you define the problem to begin with. For example, suppose you define your problem as how to get a new job during COVID times. Within that problem definition, you can consider many ways to solve the problem. You could work on your resume, look through job postings, fill out applications, ask around to discover unadvertised jobs, and take plent...

Nose Breathing During Exercise

I’ve continued practicing the exercises from The Oxygen Advantage for the past several days, and this morning I hit a nice exercise-related milestone. I decided to take the past two days off from running. Instead I went for walks and practiced reducing my breathing while also doing some breath holds. I figured that some extra practice on the breathing side could be helpful. This morning I went back to running, figuring I’d continue the interval approach. I decided that if I was going to do...

Be a Voter

Which is better? To encourage someone to vote or to encourage them to be a voter? If you want the person to actually vote, encourage them to be a voter. It’s been found that this framing is more likely to lead to action. If you’d like to strengthen a behavior, weave it into your identity. And if you’d like to change someone else’s behavior, encourage them towards an identity change that includes that behavior. Use this framing with yourself too. Don’t just get up early.
