Before Setting Your Goals for the Year…

"The moment you put a deadline on your dream, it becomes a goal.” ~ Harsha Bhogle. At this time of the year, most people have already set their New Year’s resolutions and goals and are well on their way to working on them, but not you. Why? Because, if you learned anything in 2017 it was to not set yourself up to do more than you can handle. Studies have shown that approximately 80% of resolutions fail by...

Retrospective on My 2017 Goals

“In retrospect we can only be thankful to all the mistakes that we made and to all the lessons that we learned from them!” Avijeet Das. Yesterday at work you had an agile retrospective with your team to discuss a project from last year that didn’t go as expected. The meeting was held to reflect on what went well during a project, what didn’t go so well and identifies actions for improvement going forward. This inspired you to have a retrospective with yourself on the goals you had set for 2017. But, before we start this process I want you to remember 3 things...

3 Reason Why You Don’t Need Social Media

“Distracted from distraction by distraction” ~ T.S. Eliot. At some point towards the end of 2017, you came to the realisation that social media was slowly becoming an issue for you. You used these platforms every single day without fail and to be completely honest, you weren’t using them in a healthy way. Do you agree?

Bringing in 2018

“Let all the failures of your past year be your best guide in the New Year!” ~ Mehmet Murat ildan. It’s been three days since 2018 started and so far, so good. You spent the first three days of your new year working on your blog instead of nursing a hangover, and this year you actually showed your face in the office feeling fresh and ready to work. 2018 is off to a good start! So how did you bring in 2018?

And So It Begins…

“Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self." ~ Cyril Connolly. On the last day of 2017 you were rampaging through your room at 2:00am after reading the post you wrote about re-reading your old posts. In your search, you were looking for something you wrote a long time ago, way before this little blog of yours was born. Do you remember what that was?

Every Little Step I Take Matters

“There are many ways of going forward, but only one way of standing still.” ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt. One of the routines I’m trying to incorporate into my blogging process is to read through my previous post more often. Not only would it help with proofreading to not sound like I typed with my eyes closed but I want to...

You Have to Jump in Order to Fly

"Our greatest fear is not that we will fall; our greatest fear is that we will live a full life and never fly." ~ Lisa Nichols. This post was supposed to be out last week Wednesday but for some reason I’ve been avoiding to post it. I finished writing it the weekend before and all I needed was to put a picture together and hit that publish button. So why has it taken me 5 days to do it?

I Am My Own Rescue

"My job is to like me first." ~ Lisa Nichols. Last week whilst writing my post on alternative ways of thinking I stumbled across a video by Lisa Nichols that has inspired me beyond explanation. Though I’m not in the same position as her, I could relate to everything she said and it was confirmation of how...

Alternative Way of Thinking

“Above all, be true to yourself, and if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it” ~ Hardy D. Jackson. Over the last couple of months, I’ve spoken a lot about change on my blog. Some might say a little too much and you know what...
