I Am A Nerd | Episode 2:9 | The Minute
Good Morning, my name is Carlton Matthews and this is the Minute. 60 seconds, something interesting... Just enough to get you started. As we slide into day 4 of Who Am I week I’m going to shift gears a bit. The last 2 days were about important roles that I fill in life. Being a father and husband are 2 of the most rewarding aspects of who I am. Today tho, let’s talk about how I am a big **NERD**. Computers, comic books, video games, sci-fi, and fantasy. I can still remember the first time I ever used a computer, the boxes of comic books I horded and my _still_ growing collection of video games. I was able to parlay my nerdiness into my professional life. **I’ve worked across industries, from the federal government to video games, desiging/building technical solutions.** What about you? Are you a nerd like me? How would you classify yourself? No matter what, this is The Minute, now go out there and get started.

I Am A Dad | Episode 2:8 | The Minute
Good Morning, my name is Carlton Matthews and this is the Minute. 60 seconds, something interesting... Just enough to get you started. Building on yesterday’s who am I about being a husband today let’s talk fatherhood. I am a proud, yet tired father of 4. 3 girls and one boy. Their ages range from 15 years old down to 7 weeks. Yes, that is quite the range in ages. Yes you can find it humorous. I love being a Dad like my Father and his father before him. #Dadlife is real. I tell anyone worries about being a Dad not to worry. **Just know that being a Dad is great, and act accordingly.** Any Fathers in the house? How many and what ages? This has been The Minute. Now go out there and get started.

I Am Husband | Episode 2:7 | The Minute
Good Morning, my name is Carlton Matthews and this is the Minute. 60 seconds, something interesting... Just enough to get you started. So to flesh out The Who am I statement from yesterday, I want to start with my most important role, husband. My wife and I will be starting our 17th year of marriage in April, though we have been together for 21. We met online before it was cool. In fact there was a concern that I was at best some internet weirdo and at worst an ace murderer. Together we live in the whirlwind of life holding onto each other. What is your primary relationship? How did it come about? This has been The Minute, now go get started.

Be Easy On Yourself | Episode 2:5 | The Minute
Easy on yourself that's the topic for today's minutes. I had a conversation a few weeks back in with the young man and we were discussing his frustrations with where he was and how he thought he be further along in life. He was concerned that he was missing something. He felt that things had fallen apart. I told him Not to worry, that he is still young and there is time. Even if he was someone my age I would tell him the same thing. Be Easy on Yourself if you are concerned that you haven’t gotten as far as you would have liked, don’t worry. It might even be true but that doesn't change the fact that you're in your process so don't worry about where you haven't gotten. Worry about how you can get moving now and find your pace. You’ve got this! The Minute is a short burst of inspiration delivered every weekday.

Don’t Trade Dollars For Nickels | Episode 2:4 | The Minute
Welcome back to the minute 60 seconds, something interesting, hopefully you can take something from it. I was listening to an interview and the host said the following quote, “don't sell a dollar for a nickel.” This got me thinking as I didn’t quite get it at first. I finally landed on this, don't spend something of great value on something of lesser value. We spend a lot of time doing things, we spend a lot of time in situations and circumstances, even jobs. I'm telling you, what's most valuable is your time and if you're trading your time for something that has little value you're making a mistake. I wanted to share that with you today because you got to use that which has value to get something of even greater value. The Minute is a short burst of inspiration delivered every weekday.

Be LOUD. #dadlife #minute #joy The Minute is a short burst of inspiration delivered every weekday.

Be Selective | Say Yes | The Minute
I figured I had to give a passing thought to the word no. Being selective is not bad. As I mentioned yesterday you should pick the things that matter which means to focus on what drives. However you also need to give yourself permission to say no when needed. Sorry for the late post but we thought baby time was coming early but praise God for a false alarm. #dadlife #minute #sayYes

10-10-10 Method | Say Yes | The Minute
How do we decide on big things? Try the 10 10 10 Method. Take 10 minutes away from the decision to clear the impulsive drive. Consider how you’ll feel about this decision in 10 Months. Consider how you’ll feel about this decision in 10 Years. If you’ll regret not taking action in 10 and 10 then you need to move forward. If not then say no and move on. The key here is to attack the things where there is passion and drive. If it is not a YES! Then come let it go. #dadlife #minute #sayYes

60 Second Decisions | The Minute
One technique I use to build a yes momentum in my life is the 60 second decision. Consider the situation and as many factors as you can in 60 seconds and then make a decision. It keeps you from getting bogged down in analysis. This is for small things, mundane tasks and decisions with lesser consequences. Tomorrow I’ll talk about a technique for attacking Big Decisions #dadlife #sayYes #minute

Say Yes | The Minute
1 week until the new baby and I wanted to spend some time talking about saying YES. Many of us spend a lot of our energy finding ways to say NO. We shut things down. We excuse and explain why something won’t work. While there is value in being selective I want you to say YES to these three things. Say YES to your Goals Say YES to your Dreams Say YES to YOURSELF While the next weeks and months are going to be a whirlwind for me and my family, I want you to know that I am hear to listen and to help. Go Go GO! #dadlife #yes #minute

Permission Not Needed | The Minute
If you are waiting for permission, stop. I repeat, stop waiting for permission. I can’t stress it enough that you do not need permission to move towards your goals. The question is whether you are willing to move beyond the pain of rejection to see success? So many missed opportunities come because we waited on permission. If you are putting out good into the world? Do it. Do it it Now. #dadlife #minute #podsincolor

Question About Playing It Safe | The Minute
Got a question from yesterday’s post. How do I take risks when I’ve built something that I want to protect? No stays the same forever. You’ve got to try new things, sometimes abandoning an old way, in order to find success. You didn’t build that thing playing it Safe. You had to make a decision and decisions are risky. #podsincolor #minute #dadlife

Keep Moving | The Minute
Friday push! Keep it moving friends. Now is not the time to slow down. You can accomplish that goal but you have to get moving. Don’t let the past keep you from your future. Don’t beat yourself up because your journey takes a little longer. Don’t let fear stop you. Let it drive you. You got this. #podsincolor #minute #dadlife

Playing it Safe | The Minute
What is one of the worst pieces of advice you can give your child? Playing it safe is dangerous because it creates a mindset that avoids discomfort, runs from conflict, and fears change. Nothing could be worse for a child. Everything about growing up is difficult. Relationships are hard. School changes... Body changes... Friend changes... It also stays with them well into adulthood, possibly forever, keeping them trapped in circumstances they want to escape. What are some other terrible pieces of advice we give to our children? #dadlife #minute #thoughts

Do it Now | The Minute
At the end of the day the most important step you can take is to get started. All the techniques in the world mean nothing if you don’t take action. Want to grow in your faith. You need to seek God. Want to grow in your business. You need to prospect. Want to grow in your relationships. You need to communicate with your partner. No matter what you’ve got to take action and there is no better time to get started than now. Then be consistent and continue taking action everyday. You’ve got this, but you’ve got to get started. #dadlife #minute #doitnow #showyourwork

Find Joy | The Minute
There is a difference between happiness and joy. Happiness is situational while joy is more than that, it’s deeper. Not being able to drive doesn’t make me happy but I was happy to ride in with my wife today. Find moments that make you happy but seek out something larger that brings joy into your life. #dadlife #minute #joy #marriage
