Event I am promoting: Holiday Season Bingo Year after year I have noticed that my patients health often takes a back seat during the holidays.  In an attempt to keep our patients immune system and energy up through the end of the year, Aligned Life Wellness is offering a fun bingo game!  Each square on the bingo board will ask you to take an action that will support your health over the next month.  There will be three winners of the game who will be given either a 30 minute massage, a 60 minute massage, or the grand prize of a 90 minute massage.  To play, pick up a bingo card in the office or we can send you one via email.  This game will be done on the honor system.  To cover a space, take the action that is written on the card.  To be entered in the drawing for the 30 minute massage create a horizontal or vertical line across the card.  To be entered in the 60 minute massage make a diagonal line.  And to be entered in the grand prize drawing, cover the entire board.  The drawing will take place in the first week of January, 2022.  Let's stay healthy and use December as a springboard into your healthiest year yet! Second event I am promoting: 2022 Goal Setting Workshop Over the last fifteen years I have progressively spent more time preparing for the start of each year.  This preparation has provided clarity and excitement for the year ahead.  On Thursday, January 13th at 6 pm I will be leading a 2022 Goal Setting Workshop at Aligned Life Wellness.  This event will walk you through how to set goals in each of the key domains of your life.  It will also encourage you to set aside deliberate time to determine exactly what you want to happen for your life and health.  I have long said that it is not determining how to get to a goal that is the hard part, it is what you want your goals to be that is the most challenging.  This event will massively influence how your year will transpire.  Your life is too important to miss out on a chance to be the creator of your destiny!  This event costs $5 per person and we are donating %100 of the proceeds to our Q1 charity of choice.  To let us know you would like to

Event I am encouraging: Aligned Life Wellness Canned Food Drive We are down to the wire Aligned Life Community!  To everyone who has already donated to our canned food drive this year, thank you so much for your contribution.  To everyone who has not had a chance yet, we are running out of time.  Thursday, Nov 18th is the last day we collect non-expired canned goods at the office in preparation to donate them to the San Diego Food Bank.  We hit 263 lbs. last year and are hoping to give over 300 lbs. this year so we need all hands on deck!  Thanks for your consideration! Group I am recommending:  Mastermind Group This past weekend I attended another mastermind with my older brother and two close friends.  We have been meeting once a quarter to discuss all aspects of our lives.  The goal of the group is to get honest and pertinent feedback on all of life's big questions (finances, relationships, goals, how to prioritize your time, etc

Financial strategy I am using: Cash For Eating and Drinking In an effort to tighten the reins on my financial life and move some of our resources into other areas, my wife and I have decided to go back to carrying cash.  We have decided to cut 20% from our typical monthly expenditure on eating and drinking.  To set this up successfully we track all of our spending on Quicken.  We then took out 80% of what we normally spend in a month and divided it evenly between us.  There are a few additional benefits to using cash; 1) when it is gone it is gone for the month. 2) When you are spending cash you can eliminate the guilt often felt because you know that it has been allocated for that type of expense.  3) You inherently become aware of your spending habits and eliminate the "just put it on the card" mindset.  If you are looking to become more free, by becoming more disciplined in your financial life, this is a great strategy to try!  For more information on how to do this, check out Dave Ramsey's reference called The Total Money Makeover. Book I am hearing: Great By Choice by Jim Collins and Morten Hansen Authors of "Good To Great" and "Built To Last", this writing consists of research done on companies that, despite experiencing the same uncertainty, chaos and luck of other companies in the marketplace, thrived.  The easy to understand, focused and research backed approach to running companies during trying times is a great reference for anyone looking to create an enduring entity! Quote I am saying: "Regardless of the external environment the most productive thing you can do is manage yourself." ~ Devin Shea This weekend I took a friend of mine to La Jolla Cove for a swim.  He had not done ocean swimming before and I was excited to share what I had learned over the past two years with him.  Unfortunately, when we arrived we saw that the surf was really big (6-8 foot swells).  As someone who had grown up in San Diego surfing, I knew he could handle himself in the water, so I decided he would be ok.  I knew that the hardest part would be the first 2 minutes of trying to get out past the big waves.  The initial shock of the cold water, the inability to see in the water, the big waves crashing and your
