What to know how to sail on tall ship? Click here for a super cheezy old school video of the Sorlandet, the ship on which I sailed in 2011-2012. What a beautiful ship. This is actually quite the great content, even if the footage and the soundtrack is horribly 80s! Continue reading How to Sail on a Tall-Ship (Video)
What if there was a way we could simply and efficiently eliminate most of our frustrations in our romantic and work relationships? What if what is stopping us is simply asking ourselves “what we want” and communicating it? I work with youth now (4th graders the other day), and I’ve garnered lots of insight from them about fulfillment. The insight came after we asked kids “what makes you happy” and they all answered immediately with great certainty. Moreover, they do WHAT THEY LOVE. I realized that as adults, not only we don’t DO what we want, we often don’t KNOW what we want. For mylsef, … Continue reading Blame and Judgement Are Running Your Life, and How You Can Get It Back
Here is article on Jaromir Jagr who says he wants to play in the NHL until he’s 50 years old! Considering the average “expiry date” or retirement age of an NHLer is 28 years old, the fact that he’s still playing (and producing!) at 43 is incredible. He’s already one of the 10 oldest players to play in history. And looking at him now, and what he’s done to this young Panthers team, it’s not unthinkable that he could keep going till 50. What I take out of this, personnally is that “nothing is written in stone”. There are no … Continue reading Lessons from Jaromir Jagr on How to Live Life By Your Own Terms
I just saw this article on my twitter feed and it caught my eye. The article opens with a mention of “negative self talk” and about the “disempowering” factors that get us down and hold us back. I’m very interested in these factors, and as to “why” those disempowering thoughts happen. That being said, in this post, we’ll look one of the points they bring up, the point of “lack of vision”, we’ll leave the points 2-3-4 for now, as I think lack of vision is the basis. Lack of Vision “We tend to get what we focus on, and what we don’t focus … Continue reading What is Success and What is Keeping You From Having Success?
Over the past 3 and 1/2 years, I’ve embarked on a journey to “carve my own path”. I left the 9-to-5 lifestyle, and became an entrepeneur. I had several reasons: Freedom: I wanted to be free to choose my own schedule, my own vacation time and ultimately, I wanted to have control over my own life, and what I do with it (and, for instance, not work an arbitrary amount of hours a week). Fulfillment: I wanted to work in what I believed in. My work experiences in the past have been great, but often, I would end up doing certain tasks that … Continue reading My Experience with a Productivity Coach and the Difference Between What’s “URGENT” and What’s Truly “Important”
Money is scary to a lot of people and they’d rather run the other way instead of understanding how it works! I am passionate about personal finances, not because I’m some greedy, capitalistic pig, but rather because I believe money is a powerful tool to help us achieve all that truly makes us happy and fulfilled. Much like a hammer is a tool we use to build a house, money is a tool that we can use to … well do anything! I believe that money management scares a lot of people, because it can appear so complicated and misunderstood. I recently this article … Continue reading Financial Management Scary? Naaa! Not If Know Grade 2 Arithmetics!
For some reason, I’m always looking for ways to save time and be more efficient. I also am very fond of saving money and I have a life goal of living till 117 years old, and therefore want to be as healthy as possible. So, I found myself losing a lot of time and energy thinking about food: what to get? what to make? when? I would spend lots of time thinking about it, and no time actually making food, let alone getting the ingredients for it. I also knew that I had “good recipes” except I couldn’t think about … Continue reading How to Eat Healthier, Save Time and Save Money
