Looks Practically Impossible. And Yet…

If you thought Tom Cruise’s stunt scaling the Burj Khalifa in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol was insane…

I’m trying to find words, but this is one of those videos that speaks for itself.

Mission: Impossible – Fallout premieres July 27.

Happy Monday!

Adrenaline rushes. Defying death. Doing the unthinkable. C’mon, it’s a Monday!

Fact: Tom Cruise doesn’t care what day it is.

(FYI – There’s one quick, but funny, F-bomb at 3:28) 

Well, there’s always Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday…

Have a Better Week Than Last Week. 

iPad Before iPhone Except After (Fore)seeing the Future

Wednesday is the perfect day for wisdom.

And random wisdom is the best.

The serendipitous moments that have generated inspirational ideas are some of my favorites. So much of life is unknown day-to-day and these instances of fortuity are proof of the boundless world we live in that can change for the better in a heartbeat. The trajectory of planned events can suddenly (and so frequently) take an amazing detour without warning. Without diving too deep into the psychological dynamic of unforeseen tangents, please click on the video below that features the late Steve Jobs revealing a secret of his initial business plan for a revolutionary product (for another revolutionary product, mind you) because of his gut decision to follow an inspirational moment during a developmental cycle that took him off his predetermined innovative path.

Embracing an inspirational aha moment (however small) can change your life, your business and, in some cases, possibly even the world.

While we may never definitively know if the chicken or the egg came first, we do know why the iPhone came before the iPad. And the answer is insanely great.

Happy Monday!

Who needs a parachute?

Skydiving extraordinaire Luke Aikins attempted the unthinkable this past Saturday night: A free-fall from 25,000 feet without (I repeat) without a parachute.

Yes, Luke Aikins is completely insane.

Simi Valley, California was the scene for this extreme stunt over the weekend and the catch (literally) was that the 42-year-old Luke Aikins had to calculate to land in an elevated net on the ground with a nervously excited crowd on-site. While the net appeared large and wide from the perspective of the spectators, the net probably looked like, from a certain height, the head of a pin for Luke Aikins.

Absolutely terrifying.

And yet, I can’t look away…

Forget golf: That’s a hole-in-one.

Have an Insanely Awesome Week!
