Zone in to your comforts

You decided to get off the couch and get yourself to gym. But 6 months later you’re still doing the same exercises. You realised you couldn’t eat take-outs all your life and learnt to cook. A year on and you’re still only making the same 3 dishes. You started feeling out-of-date so decided to expand your musical soundscape by hooking…

The next evolution

We’ve been evolving for years. Our genes have kept mutating, testing out combinations that may work better in our environment. The aim is for the organism to survive. Genes are selfish – they want the organism to survive at all costs so that they can survive and propagate. Evolution goes a bit further. Some organisms have learnt to collaborate with…

Lift up or bring down – you choose.

Overheard this conversation between 2 elderly men at gym: “How’s work going with you?” “Same shit, different day.” The conversation continued along this vein, both parties moaning about their daily work lives. This isn’t a unique case. It seems to be the norm to bitch and moan about work. Either it is really boring, mundane or painful, or it’s just…

When you drive to work, you could lose your temper, working yourself into a frenzy about the terrible traffic and the awful drivers on the road, or…

Momentum

If you stop however, you may struggle to start again.If it’s a short break, getting yourself motivated to start again may not be too tricky. Leave it too long and the weight…

Time

There’s never enough of it. There are so many things to do, so much work to get done, so many projects to complete, but there never seems to be enough time to do it all. There are tasks on your task list that just seem to have been there forever. They’ve gathered so much dust you probably can’t even remember…

It’s Time

It’s time. Time to do something. Time to stand up and say “enough!” Time to reclaim what we’ve fought so hard for. Time to leave our differences behind us and unite. Time to stop being distracted by the story spinning, the divisive propaganda. Time to help those around us see what’s really going on. Time to say “No! This is…
