It can happen to anyone at any time and is not because of karma, or due to … Continue reading Massive change requires reinvention of Brand-You
I have never been a fan of New Year's Resolutions; it strikes me that January is about the worst time (especially in the Northern Hemisphere) to start committing to enormous goals and making sweeping promises about our consumption, or denial of, certain pleasures from alcohol to sleep. It is cold, dark and miserable for a … Continue reading Make Changes not Resolutions

"I'll try to stick to it this time" becomes your mantra and your choice to accept failure, before … Continue reading Choose not to “Try”
I loved this video from Daniel Ilabaca speaking about parkour and how it allowed him to see his choices and the power he had to embrace them. Embracing our choices and taking responsibility for where they can lead us is demonstrated beautifully. Enjoy.
