While living the “code of conduct” in our high school of over 2,400 students, it was easy to see that procedures can only be enforced when the principles behind them are fully understood. The human side of education is something that is lacking as we prepare for state assessments and bring attention to those who conduct themselves inappropriately. The microcosm of a world we live in within our schools sometimes makes us rigid and non-trusting due to the need to control student behavior. We have found in our high school that student disciplinary referrals decreased by 50% because of the trust that was achieved with our students. By using life lessons in the formal, curriculum based education process, you not only promote good morals and values, but you remind people that there is a bigger picture. The weekly messages, quotes and vignettes contained in this book will hopefully inspire you to not only be a better educator, student or coach but also a better person for your family, friends and co-workers. It is important to reflect on our behavior since our reputation is based on our daily interactions and habits. I have never heard of anyone who has bought back their reputation once it was lost. Leadership by example, at home and in the workplace, along with an “ego-less” demeanor, will allow us to be great leaders, both in our schools and personal lives.
Godspeed: Riding Out the Recession chronicles the author’s experience of a solo bicycle trek of over 14,000 miles around the USA. Departing from his home in Cincinnati, Ohio on Memorial Day of 2011, he returned just over a year later after promising his Dad that he would be back home in time to celebrate his 90th birthday.
Seeing adversity as an opportunity, the journey was his response to the crippling effect of the recession upon his work as a carpenter/contractor. Renting his home and shutting down all of his expenses, he created a food and lodging budget of $15/day. Maps and smart phone were the major expenses of his experience.
“Wild camping” his way around the country, he shares the curious and compelling nature of how people and events showed up for him along the way. Was it simply a journey or a journey created? At the very least it became a pilgrimage that confirmed many of his core beliefs and, in subtle ways, changed others.

...came to be from my journey with breast cancer. This healing passage evolved over a few years. It did not present itself right away, but transpired when I was ready for it to begin. First, I had to become conscious of this path and perfect a balance within.
With my initial diagnosis, I gave full authority to my traditional doctors, a traditional drug therapy, and fear. It would take a second discovery of this illness to fuse me with my heart and soul.
My journey to heal within drew me to a path reaching the deepest caverns of my being. It was a remarkable awakening of my ability to hear the whispers of my inner voice as it guided me to who I truly am to be.
It is this disease, so grounded in dread and fear, that had the power to awaken me to my heart, my soul, and the quest they were guiding me to be part of. Its precious gift, life: a full life.
“When listening to our inner voice, we embrace its message, treasure its guidance, and trust its love. This comforting, intimate instrument gently guides us in discovering our authentic self, one’s genuine life path, and the potential we possess to truly heal within.”
— Michael W. Kovarik

The needs of the self-aware are different. Many of us are overly empathic, and many are extra sensitive to certain foods, medicines, situations, and people.
If you have physical or emotional ailments, are overweight, have allergies, or are inexplicably lethargic, unfocused, or feeling lost, there is a reason. Your energetic sensitivities likely have caused you to take on the pain, unhappiness, and other disease of the people around you. Self-Care for the Self-Aware provides a solution specifically tailored for you and your uncommon healing needs.
If you've done way too many traditional, alternative, or complementary healing modalities and at best have only achieved temporary relief, Self-Care for the Self-Aware is for you. You'll learn a process specific to the self-aware to heal ourselves, so we can better serve others.

Our common belief in business is that the heart has no place in workplace management.
In fact, most of us were taught that the heart acts like Kryptonite in leadership: it inherently undermines a manager’s effectiveness – and lowers productivity and profitability.
In this stunning and groundbreaking work, however, engagement expert, Mark C. Crowley, provides irrefutable proof that we were wrong.
Crowley begins by showing us how traditional leadership practices are failing. Across the globe, employee engagement and job satisfaction scores have fallen to crisis levels. According to astonishing research from Gallup, 70% of the US workforce is now disengaged.
It once was that a job and a paycheck kept workers satisfied and productive. Today, pay barely makes the list of what inspires people to put their hearts into their work and contribute to their highest capacity.
Right before our eyes, human beings have evolved in what they need and want in exchange for work. 21st Century employees are seeking to find purpose, meaning and feelings of significance. What drives their engagement is feeling valued, respected, developed and cared for.
Crowley’s profound insight draws upon recent medical science discoveries which prove it’s the heart, and not the mind, that drives human motivation and achievement.
There’s nothing soft about Lead From The Heart. It represents the future of workplace management and a roadmap to driving uncommon engagement, productivity and profitability.
