How Bad Are Kidney Stones? Not as Bad as A Tiny Bit of Effort is Good

February 14, 2017 Posted by: Rob Commodari

I recently went through the excruciating pain of kidney stones. How bad are kidney stones? So bad. You’ve probably heard stories about how severe the pain is. Many women attest that nothing hurts more than giving birth to a child (or should I say the labor pains that come with the experience of giving birth to a child), but doctors and other professionals I’ve spoken to over the years have said that the pain of kidney stones is eerily close to the pain a woman feels in labor. I don’t pretend […]

How to Reduce Anxiety in Life and Real Estate

January 31, 2017 Posted by: Rob Commodari

Anxiety, a physical reaction to an emotional trigger, eats away at millions of people everyday. Anxiety affects how we act, how we think, how we sleep. It can affect every and all parts of our lives if we do not learn to control it. So how to reduce anxiety is an important practice to learn. Just about everyone I have ever met has experienced some level of anxiety at one time or another. Most commonly, it’s a relatively low level of anxiety caused by a feeling of tension or fear […]

Practicing What I Preach: Having an “Aha Moment” While Talking Aloud

January 23, 2017 Posted by: Rob Commodari

Some of the best speeches I have given have been ones when I discuss topics I am struggling with at that moment.

They also occasionally present to me an “aha” moment.

The Year in Review: An Inventory of Wins, Losses, “Ahas” and Gratitude

December 23, 2016 Posted by: Rob Commodari

As 2016 quickly comes to an end, it’s time to look at the year in review and to take inventory of what happened over the past 365 days. Every year starts out with ambitions and goals; maybe even a New Year’s resolution or two.  Along the way, however, many of us fail to track what we have accomplished or experienced, a task that is vital to our growth. Without doing so, when the year comes to an end, we really don’t know how to celebrate because we probably don’t know what […]

Why We Get So Much Done Around the Holidays: Because We Have To

December 1, 2016 Posted by: Rob Commodari

It’s that time of year again — when time warps and we start operating at a higher level of efficiency. It’s the time when we start getting pumped about “getting it done.” It happens every year. We get into mid- to late-October and everyone starts saying, “I can’t believe that Thanksgiving and Christmas are just weeks away.” We act as though something is going to slow down time but it doesn’t. It never does. Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping into the future, as the song goes. So this time […]
