New Years Goals

7 Ways to Make Your Goals Stick in 2016

By | Goal Setting, Lifestyle Design | No Comments

At Christmas it seems like you can never get away from John Lennon’s song “So This Is Christmas.

“And so this is Christmas and what have you done? Another year over, and a new one just begun.”

This song has become synonymous with the year ending. Every time I hear it, it triggers a series of thoughts that makes me think back and reflect on the past year. It makes me think back to all the goals I have achieved and the ones I didn’t. Read More

How to Change the World – A Note from Steve Jobs

By | Lifestyle Design | One Comment

“When you grow up, you tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world, try not to bash into the walls too much, try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money. But that’s a very limited life. Life can be much boarded, once you discover one simple fact, and that is, everything around that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you.

And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use. The minute that you understand that you can poke life and if you push in, something will pop out the other side, that you can change it, that you can mold it, that’s maybe the most important thing, is to shake off this erroneous notion, that life is there and you’re just going to live in it.

Versus embrace it, change it, improve it, make your mark on it… however you learn that, once you learn it, you’ll want to change life and make it better because it’s messed up in a lot of ways. Once you learn that you’ll never be the same again.”

Have you ever come up with an “idea” but struggled bringing it to reality? We’ve all been there at some point.

We all get good ideas. Yet our follow-through can be a flop.

We struggle getting our ideas to become a reality for a variety of reasons: fear of failure, worrying how others will react to our ideas, and not taking enough action are only a few to list. Read More
