Discover better loves…

Humans do not get better by acquiring better knowledge. Humans get better by discovering better loves. Study history and you will see how discovering better loves led human progress through the centuries. For instance, if your work is energized by your love of comfort, power, money, and prestige, you’re performance will peak once you’re comfortable, powerful, have enough dinero, and are satisfied with your perch. However, if your work is energized by your love of the craft, your love of the team, and your love of the clients you serve, you’re performance will have no data defined end. Want better? Discover better loves.

This is why our best work at BTL is helping you author OPUS – your labor of love. We love being a catalyst for this kinda clarity in work and life. We love modeling the way imperfectly, authentically, and openly. We love the aim of better loves. We love learning and acquiring better knowledge too. We’ve come to understand better loves lead to better lives; bitter, not so much. C.S. Lewis was right when he said, “We are half hearted creatures, fooling around with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at sea. We are far too easily pleased.”

Want better lives? Don’t be so easily pleased, my friend. Discover better loves. Good…

  1. Let this one trigger a “moment of truth” – don’t miss it. Did you push yourself to be great today? Do you have a practice buddy, a “seal” buddy, who is doing the same WITH you? Have you given someone the green light to challenge you, encourage you – out of belief? out of LOVE? Do you have a scorecard of what executing out of love would look like in super practical ways? Who have you shared it with? Moments of truth are not a mirage unless you ignore them. Dream AND do. Done so – yes? or no? “Do or do not, there is no try” – only truth or lie. Truth in love, build and live. Or, lie in the shallows, and die slow death. Why are you here? Choose wisely.
