“Many scientists will tell you the human mind never really forgets anything. The ability to recall the details, emotion and value of an idea or event requires keeping detailed notes and intentional reflection. That’s why everyone should journal.” J Loren Norris
Why should I journal? What’s the point?
More than thirty years ago I began to journal. Some of the things written down are personal thoughts I needed to process and Have zero value to be revealed. Most of the things written down were ideas, notions or concepts which stretched my mind. Inventions and perspectives which challenged me and the people around me at the time.
Some of those ideas were laughable when I wrote them down, today they are real, in action and commercially viable. Some of the captured notions were warnings to my heart about people and relationships which were risky or ill advised. Some of the scribblings and ramblings were highlights from great conversations, truthful revelations and personal discoveries. Some of these ideas expressed themselves as poetry, short stories and prose. Some were simply fragments of awareness, a glimpse into something which would take years or decades to truly comprehend.
Looking back on all of these writings now brings up some deeper reflection. The maturity in some areas and blindness in others motivates me to crave more awareness, understanding and application.
None of these mental exercises are unique to me. All of these thoughtful encounters are the course of human nature. The real difference lies in the keeping record of these notions and considering them from time to time asking, “Where do they fit NOW?”
Many scientists will tell you the human mind never really forgets anything. The ability to recall the details, emotions and value of an idea or event requires keeping detailed notes and intentional reflection. That’s why everyone should journal.

Day after day I meet people who are struggling just to make ends meet. They are adrift in this vast sea of humanity holding on to their job, their family, their home, and their car with all they've got. They see their life experiences and education as the last hope to find their purpose and identity. They gather, fill and stuff all the money they can into every opportune investment. Yet they are empty, frustrated, angry and just plain fed up.
We have all experienced that moment; when we find yourself stuck in traffic, yelling at random strangers to do what they wish they could... but can't... GO!
The idea that life can be better than it is today is like the flame of a candle fighting for all its worth to stand against the tempest.
We all want a better life.
Even when life is good, we want more.
That idea, that flame, is the hope that lives in the hearts and minds of all of us. Should that flame be extinguished, hope itself may well go with it. It is the rut of hopelessness that traps many would be shining stars and buries that glow from the sight of the world. It is the rut of hopelessness that extinguishes that flame.
Lives that would have been a beacon to the wandering are lost at sea themselves. Inspirations of success that would have been the voices crying out to all who suffer are hidden away in their own stale lives, they cannot share who they are or what the world needs from them.
It is my passion to help you find your purpose. I want to see you become successful, but more than that to be free!
Without vision people perish.
Without vision, we seem to be lost, mind numb robots following the herd into the abyss that is everyday life. We do not live intentionally without a vision for our future. We do not live passionately without a vision for our future. We do not live productively without a vision for our future. We certainly cannot lead without a vision for our future and a vision for the future of those we lead.
This audio course will inspire and instruct you to create a vision which will become a significant driving force in your life.
