“Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.”

So here I am entering my most enjoyable blog message.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I enjoy all of my blog messages, but today’s is especially delicious, I mean, enjoyable.

I’m sitting here at DeLorenzo’s Tomato Pies in Robbinsville, NJ. I have wireless internet (stolen from the sushi place next door), an outlet for my laptop and two amazing pies on the way (one 1/2 sweet peppers and onions, 1/2 garlic and one of the owner’s favorite, anchovies, garlic, no cheese…burnt).

Today was my day off, but I gave a mental coaching session and then taught a ladies doubles clinic. I love what I do and don’t mind putting in the hours.

Now I’m blogging during lunch at one of my favorite pizza places on the planet. Again, I don’t consider blogging, work.

Someone recently said that they were jealous of me because I love what I do.

Why can’t you?

I’m not saying to quit your job, but…

-Start doing more of what you love
-Start making a difference
-Think of creative ways you can monetize
-Enjoy the whole process

It’s Friday…are you happy the weekend is here?

I sure am, not because I’m NOT working, but because I AM working…

But for now, I’m off. Time to enjoy my pizza.

Make every day delicious!

Thank you, Sam Amico and DeLorenzo’s Tomato Pies!!

Talk to you tomorrow.


Some of the greatest leaders in history have spoken great words. President Obama joined that list yesterday in Washington, DC. Below are words from another great in history…

“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”

Thanks for reading.


The person who succeeds is not the one who holds back, fearing failure, nor the one who never fails…but rather the one who moves on in spite of failure. Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory or defeat.”

-Theodore Roosevelt
