Change Has Come

So exactly a week ago today, I walked into a room having prepared for one meeting but it totally turned into something else. The discussion threw me off balance and ultimately lead to a difficult decision. Now, no one died or is dying but it definitely brought home the need to take better care of myself and live a more purposeful life; one filled with work that truly inspires me. And where I spend more time partaking in hobbies and activities that help relieve stress and bring equilibrium to my life. And so whereas 2013 has been about other people […]

Calculated Risks

I’m really hard on myself, too hard at times that I don’t fully appreciate or acknowledge all that I’ve accomplished and instead at times waste an enormous amount of energy obsessing about my failings.

And so while I need to spend some time reflecting and learning the lessons from the failure, once I’ve done that, by refocusing energy and effort it typically brings greater clarity and success. Thus, if […]
