I was lost, overconfident and looking for direction. Bruce’s coaching help me develop a framework for life and work that I continue to use today.

A rocking chair is a fine structure in which to relax

But not so good for going places. Its structurehow the pieces and parts are arranged—limits the energy you put into to flowing back and forth.

In contrast, bicycles are structured to go where you want to go. Energy put into them takes you someplace.

You can hire coaches, read books, listen to podcasts, watch videos, attend workshops, and “solve problems” until the cows come home, but, if the structure in which you act does not guide your energy and actions toward real and lasting results, your efforts will likely be in vain.

“When Bruce first talked about “structure,” I cringed. I didn’t want to force myself into a mold. But, no! He meant a framework to organize my actions so I persisted toward results. Using the “creating structure,” I became a better photographer and am creating myself a focused and rewarding life that supports my art. And I’m getting paid!”
