Never Lose Your Why

As we grow we sometimes lose sight of why we chose the work we do. Instead of serving a cause we shifted to serving for likes, recognition...climbing painfully up the attention status hierarchy. Today I went back to a simple exercise I did in 2005....I stated all the reasons why I wanted to achieve 3 … Continue reading Never Lose Your Why

What’s Your Word?

Have you ever heard about choosing one word and living with it for a year? Well some time back in November I decided to choose joy. Joy is the highest energy of all.

How is this Going to Affect Me?

We always have a choice in how we are going to respond to any situation.
