Imperfect Mondays

Here’s one I wrote this morning: I woke up feeling a little groggy this morning, with grey sky and little, but a 65% rating on my sleep capacity – thanks to my new friendly app, Sleep Cycle.

You’ve got talent; use it.

If you haven’t witnessed Jack Carroll yet, let me introduce you… I love when he said; “In comedy, a lot of the time, you’re weaknesses are your strengths.” I believe this is true for many areas in life; that every hardship, difficulty, and disappointment in life can be turned to work itself back together for ourContinue reading “You’ve got talent; use it.”

Being a light

Being a light to the world requires action, requires energy, requires substance.

3 ways to be more productive

There is nothing more satisfying than to feel like you’ve achieved something each day. It makes most of the bumps on the journey of life feel, a little less bumpy.

Do one thing, and take a step

Once you decide what it is that you want to achieve this year – no matter how small, or large it may be; do something that will take you in that direction.
