I am Danny Kohn, writer and designer for this site and owner, software engineer and consultant for Inspirations Software Design. My three greatest passions in life are sharing time with my family, software design and sharing inspiration with others. I have the incredible privilege of being able to spend a significant amount of time every day doing each of those three things. I am a single father of Tristen, our 6 year old son. It has been such an incredible joy to watch him grow up and learn so much. Everything he does and says overwhelms me with adoration. We have a wonderful evening ritual of reading books together in a beanbag chair. Nearly every night, we have a laughing attack together. I smile and giggle constantly in his presence and feel truly inspired.

Learning Self Love: My Journey

Students will rise to the level of expectation.
-Ramon Menandez - (character: Jaime Escalante)
Stand and Deliver

Rarely is any significant life change entirely painless. Even the most positive and desirable changes bring about challenges. This is one reason so many of us fall back to our old ways after making some progress in our lives. I have read and listened to so many stories of people who have lifted themselves up …

Status update

You may have already noticed some changes at BeInspiredEveryDay.com. If you visit the site today, the first things you’ll see are significant changes to the look of the site. One more subtle change you might also notice is a change to the tagline. It now reads: “Daily¬† inspirational quotes and articles that help you change your life.”

The new tagline more clearly reflects the focus of the articles as it has been evolving over the past several years. It reflects a deeper commitment to demonstrating techniques for life transformation. Some of the transformations we focus on are

  • self sabotage elimination
  • health and diet transformation
  • spiritual growth
  • weight loss
  • changes in perspective & mindset leading to contentment & peace of mind
  • how to use meditation as a catalyst for change
  • how to shift your thought process for success.


If you’re an especially observant reader, you may have noticed that I used the word “we” in the last paragraph. Up to this point, I have been the exclusive author on this website, but you will soon be reading articles from April Farley as well. April, is not only the business manager of Inspirations Software Design, but is also my best friend and mother of my son. Though we are no longer married, we are still strong partners in parenting and in business. One of April’s greatest strengths is communicating with others heart to heart. She is not afraid to connect with others on a human level.

This quality is reflected in her writing. She shares from the heart and speaks to her reader’s heart. Her writings center on the physical challenges she has faced in her life, especially in regards to maintaining a healthy weight. Though she discusses the technical details of dieting, exercise and other healthy living habits, her main focus is on the mindset of success and the mindset of failure. In my opinion, there is nothing that matters more than that, and April’s story is a testament to that idea.


A Template For Change – My Journey

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.
-Anatole France
Anatole France at Amazon.com

21 years ago, at the young age of 16, I came home after an exhausting, court-ordered, outpatient drug rehabilitation session and decided I needed to unwind. I called an older friend. We went to the liquor store, bought a little keg of beer and proceeded to polish it off. I walked home that night through …

Addiction & Recovery: My Journey

Self-sabotage is when we say we want something and then go about making sure it doesn't happen.
-Alyce P. Cornyn-Selby

Addiction is an extreme form of the self-sabotage that we all experience from time to time. This is my story through the depths of extreme self-sabotage. Whether you are in the grip of addiction, struggling with recovery, close to someone who is, or simply experiencing some level of self-sabotage, I hope this will help you …

Staying On Track

Have you ever made a commitment to change something¬† in your life, had tremendous inspiration, motivation and momentum at first, but over time found yourself falling back to your old ways? I have. When I was 19, I started experiencing health problems that are more typical for someone much older. I suffered from joint pain, …

The Lord’s Prayer – What Does It Mean?

The Lord's Prayer may be committed to memory quickly, but it is slowly learnt by heart.
-Frederick Denison Maurice

Have you ever wondered where exactly is “Kingdom Come”? Or, of all the things we could ask of God, why do Christians ask for bread? In this article, I dissect this prayer that many of us have recited more times than we can count, but perhaps are not always clear on what exactly it is …

Setting Priorities – The Most Important Life Changing Activity

There is never enough time to do everything, there is always enough time to do the most important things, and to stay with them until they are done right.
-Brian Tracy

I am one of those people who likes to go in 200 directions at once. I have so many interests and want to learn and experience so many things that it is difficult for me to decide which direction I want to go. I like to think of it as a “diversity of interests.” Doctor’s, …
