The WALL from Brick

I had the opportunity to play goalie against Landon Donovan, Shannon McMillan, and a host of other former athletes and current media in a “Celebrity Soccer Game” last week. There were about 6,000 people at the game (the Celebrity Game was at halftime of a San Diego Socker’s indoor professional league game) so it was a great atmosphere. I was…

What I eat for breakfast every morning

One of the common questions I often get is “What do you eat for breakfast?” As a matter of fact, I was on a Facebook LIVE last Friday morning, and several people asked me to share my “Ketogenic Plan and specific breakfast routine.” OK…here goes. And better yet, in addition to my breakfast and keto plan, I will give you…

A Look Back…10 Year Retreat was full of WOW!!!

Spirit. Energy. Harmony. Laughter. Love. Success. Significance. Passion. Purpose. IMPACT. And WOW! These are “10” words (plus 1 “and then some”) that sum up my recent 10-year “Todd Durkin Mastermind Retreat” held last week in Coronado, CA. I can’t believe it’s been 10-years since our first annual Retreat with just 12-people in a room at the Hilton Mission Bay on…

Be Different…

Be Different… Good morning. I’m fresh off my 10th Annual Mastermind Retreat in Coronado over the weekend. Let me just say it was absolutely epic. It was full of people who were “different”… We had over 100 people in for a deep-dive into business and personal growth. It was certainly full of WOW!!! One of the many highlights was having…

I heard my Dad’s voice…

Today would have been my Dad’s 83rd birthday (Feb 6th). Unfortunately, my father died of a heart attack when he was only 58 years old. Over the weekend, I was cleaning out my garage and came across some old VHS tapes (who remembers these?) from my high school football glory days. I haven’t watched them in almost 30 years. So…

How Committed Are You?

Yes, December 26 is Boxing Day in many parts of the world. It is celebrated primarily in the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Boxing Day started in the UK about 800 years ago, during the Middle Ages. It was the day when the alms box, collection boxes for the poor often kept in churches, were traditionally opened so…

Embrace the Grind

“Some days you got it…some days you don’t. It’s the days you DON’T have it, that you gotta FIND it.” That’s a quote I say all the time. It’s the ability to “flip the switch” when the switch needs flippin’. Maybe you are waking up tired today… Maybe you are dragging your little sleepy tail around wondering when you’re going…

This absolutely freaked me out!

We all have FEARS in life. I’m no different. I don’t like snakes. And I don’t like heights. So when I visited the Shanghai Pearl Tower last week in downtown Shanghai, China, I had to face one of my fears…HEIGHTS! As a matter of fact, instead of me writing about it, just watch me “hover” above the city at 270…
