Target your LinkedIn profile

Incubation

A few months ago I read a book called The Start-up of You. One the primary takeaways I got from the book was the value of networking. Surrounding yourself with a community of high-quality peers and mentors is the finest way to increase your own value. The book calls this "I to the We". In other words, success depends on your individual capabilities and your network’s capability to magnify them.

Just Write

Stop letting resistance kill your dream of writing a book. You can do this thing in your off time, during lunch, or on a coffee break. Don't think about how big the project is, just get writing!

Lets get weird!

Go out there and be weird! Act strange, and don't give a damn what other people think, in time people will realize how freaking awesome it is to be weird!

But did you die?​

If you can't make the situation better, and you haven't really been hurt, then what point would there be in allowing your emotions to affect you? When something seems bad, ask yourself, "Did I die? Am I hurt?" if the answer is no, then dust yourself off and get to work doing what you can to make the situation better.

Meditations​

I'm the only reader I'm really writing for, as long as I like what I've written each day, I'm happy.

You call it procrastinating, I call it thinking!​

"Imagination only comes when you privilege the subconscious, when you make delay and procrastination work for you." - Hilary Mantel

Post Traumatic School Disorder

“Education shall be not only about gaining more knowledge and information but rather be about understanding better the meaning of life.” - Anna Barchetti Durisch (Psychologist)

Modesty =/= Humility

In the modern world, modesty is often used as a justification for diffidence. We like to think we're being humble when we are being modest. In most cases, it simply shows shyness and a lack of self-confidence.

Just Do It


This last weekend, I was so nervous I almost threw up three separate times.
