Marshall Goldsmith, long recognized as the World’s #1 Executive Coach, said:

“If you want to develop a growth mindset and you’re ready to use your own life as a laboratory, Mindset Mondays with DTK and the REWIRE Framework are your guide.”

The REWIRE Framework

Resisting the inertia of day-to-day life is a challenge for all of us. What I want for you is to take what you learn & discover, be it through my book or any other area of learning in your life, and use is to create change in your life. And that is exactly what the REWIRE Framework is designed to help you do!

REWIRE is an acronym for Reflect | Experiment | Write | Investigate | Revise | Expand. This framework is a structured yet playful approach enabling you to integrate and reinforce ANY new way of thinking, being, or doing — all in service of increasing cognitive flexibility and creating meaningful, lasting change.

Though it was originally designed to be used with my best-selling book, you can use the REWIRE Framework to deepen your connection with any material you’re exploring and to make that learning stick!

REWIRE Framework

Mindset Mondays will disrupt your thinking, increase your cognitive flexibility, help change your mind for the better, and have fun doing all of that — but only if you use it. Read it and act on it. A great weekly primer for reenergizing and recreating your life by jump-starting the brain that powers it.”

— Whitney Johnson, award-winning author of Disrupt Yourself and Build an A-Team

Bex Taylor-Klaus
Something, something else, even more …

Bex is the eldest spawn of the author, and non-binary personality as seen on TV and various other screen options (imdb.me/bex). They don’t take themselves too seriously, and suggest you don’t either. Their advocacy, however, should definitely is taken very seriously. Bex uses social platforms and visibility to advocate for fundamental human rights, human decency, and human respect — oh, and mental health and animals. Bex and fellow artist Alicia are married as of Fall 2020, and have teamed up to create an Etsy account (etsy.com/shop/BAceCamp) to share their combined arts.

Bex loves to doodle and would do anything for family. So, here we are. Yay, nepotism!

Alicia Sixtos
Creator, Artist, Recovering Actor

Latinx, LA-based artist, Alicia has been an actor all of her adult life. Now she wants to scrap that career and find what truly makes her creativity dance. She’s been reflecting back on her childhood to find the things she loved before her creativity got tainted by adulthood. Visual art was always something she was naturally drawn to. Though she is still finding it difficult to fully reach a non-self-judgmental and free state of creativity,  Alicia has amazing humans in her life who see her potential and encourage her to unleash the wildly creative beast raging insider her.

Also, she is the author’s daughter-in-law, as of Fall 2020 … Yay, nepotism v2!

I started with the intention of skimming Mindset Mondays and got sucked in from chapter one! While the book is designed to cherry pick lessons that resonate most with you, I dare you not to find value on every single page. I’m a former executive, now transformational coach and personal development geek who walked away with fresh perspective, new tools, and some much-needed reminders.
You will too. Guaranteed.
