Never put off till tomorrow what can be done today. I can’t count how many times I’ve heard this phrase over the course of my life. I’m sure it’s something very familiar to you as well. Yet how many times in a day, week, month, and year do you find yourself saying “Oh I’ll get to it later”. And when later rolls around, we still find all the reasons to avoid, evade, and bypass taking action. The seemingly adapted notion, as a society, that time is boundless, endless, and everl
We all have a routine. Those things we’ve been doing for ages that just seem to come naturally. Mindless. Without thinking or much effort. Whether it’s getting up at a certain time, automatic responses to specific questions, to how you process new information or prepare for meetings. Auto- pilot is alive and well. How though does being on auto pilot allow you to grow, learn, and ultimately be better? Contribute to living your best life?
I’ve been thinking about this idea a l
In light of last week’s Presidential election results it’s no secret that as a country we are more divided than ever. From race to religion, economic status, and basic rights for humanity the use of divisive rhetoric has the country torn. Families are up in arms, personal relationships, social circles and what we might have once viewed as safe spaces are no longer. It’s been a tough time for most, no matter what your opinion on the matter has been, and the question for many a
I’ve made mention before that as a child I always had something to say. I loved asking questions and constantly remained curious about what was happening around me. Often times about things that were none of my business or outside of my comprehension levels, yet I still had this burning desire to know and learn about it. We’ve all heard the saying “curiosity killed the cat”. Well I was often times the cat. Somewhere, somehow along the way we’ve increasingly allowed the idea t
Who are you? I must have asked myself that question a thousand times and there were many times that it wasn’t the easiest to answer. As a society we are constantly inundated with images and realities that are seemingly projected on us by the media, advertising, family history, friends, co- workers, etc. … I find it extremely interesting how we naturally process this information and adapt bits and pieces to the framework of our beings. If this is true then how fair is it to sa
If there is one thing I have learned this past week it is that life is too short. If you want to succeed at living the best possible life that you can it is imperative to go after what you want, when you want it, without hesitation. You know all those dreams, desires, wishes and wants that you’re waiting to fulfill when the time is right? Well I am here to tell you that the time is NOW. We all have a list of things whether it’s the dream job, dream neighborhood to live in, id
We all for the most part have a sensational appetite for greatness. It’s what drives us to do so many things throughout the course of our life. But what happens when that appetite pushes us too far? When the work no longer serves your purpose and you’ve fallen into that trap of spinning your wheels. You know, when the effort you put out supersedes the return but you seemingly continue with your actions anyway. We’ve all been there. Whether it is work related, or a personal r
I’ve found myself discussing the concept of responsibility a lot in conversation over the past few days/ weeks so I thought it might be something interesting to bring to light this week.
What does the word responsibility mean to you?
By definition it means the state or fact of having a duty to deal with something or of having control over someone. I think this is the general definition that comes to mind for many of us. Having to take care of something or someone. We learn
I recently came across a quote that read “you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”- Jim Rohn Without thinking about it too much, who are those five people in your life? And when you think about them are they who you would most like yourself to reflect. You know that old saying you are the company you keep? Well, it’s true and this is what I would like to focus on this week. We’ve had some time to reflect on the idea of concept and if we now can fu
I initially brainstormed around several different topics that I wanted to discuss this week but after a recent conversation with my mom there’s one fundamental element that I can’t seem to shake and that is one of gratitude. With all this talk about change and cultivating the life you want we often get distracted from all that we currently have and the foundations that allow us to propel forward in the ways which we possibly could never imagine. The idea of being grateful for
