“Do the best you can until you know better. Then, when you know better, do better.” -Maya Angelou

Richard Rohr

  • “Now I am older,
  • chastened by failures,
  • Where have you failed today? Why did you fail? These are learning experiences that help your growth in life, NOT impede it.
  • rejections,
  • human suffering,
  • There are struggles that you choose and struggles that you do not choose... how do you handle both?
  • study,
  • Read books that you find tough to understand.
  • Esoteric knowledge
  • and the sophistications and nuances of experience.”
  • Into the Grey, not cut and dry.
  • Do I now know more or less?
  • Were the old words adequate, or am I saying it better now?

The incremental effect of “little bit betters”

  • Each step takes you closer
  • Football analogy
  • Candle

Don't stay faithful to who you used to be.

About the Podcast

The WizeGuys
Going rogue in pursuit of wisdom.
A cosmic exhale—it’s what we all yearn for. Mac and Stu are a couple of WizeGuys with decades of experience in navigating the nuances of life as entrepreneurs, family men, coaches, mentors, facilitators, thought leaders, masters of relationship, and contemplative mystics. Join with them as they apply an eclectic approach to life, centered around the concept of cultivating wisdom. They will help you build discernment through the art of asking the “whys”, and by showing that going rogue is the only way to break free of the biases that keep us from doing it just a little bit better.

They realize that what got us here is not going to get us there. Take a journey with them where you’ll experience ah-ha moments stimulated by their conversation that’s filled with wit, candor, vulnerability, and always seasoned with right amount of the mysterious. We’re all exotic cocktails, and learning to celebrate our wonderful uniqueness as we build oneness is the perfect recipe for crafting a better world for everyone.

Mac is The Maverick and Stu is The Maestro. Blending those perspectives in an almost magical way to get after it and call it out will show you how together is better. They’ll use the events of the day to practically apply a roguish blend of modern perspective and timeless wisdom sagacity. Seeking clarity over certainty changes everything. You want some of that? Then relax, enjoy, and engage. Oh...and make sure that you strap in…
