Are you on a progressive life journey?

Who are you? That may be a strange question and you’re probably wondering why anyone would pose it. Stay with me. You might be inclined to think of your name. Sorry. Not quite. Perhaps you’re a father, mother, brother, sister, friend, husband, wife, colleagues and so on? Sorry, you...

Exploit personal power to its highest potential

Realise your potential by standing out in the crowd

At a breakfast meeting once, I used honey to sweeten my coffee. I did not want tea, I wanted coffee a little sweet and did not want to use sugar so I used honey. Should be simple enough, wouldn’t you think? It wasn’t. It was another five-ten minutes before we moved on to the formal...

Are biases slowing your advancement?

Keeping positive in a toxic environment

Sadly, we still don’t comprehend that working towards pleasing others is an exercise in futility. Each person’s idea of pleasure is a complex and dynamic process to very unique states of mind. Attempting to keep up with that is sure to send us running around lifelike headless...

Design, define success using your own tools

Tried and proven secret to success

The secret to success for every person who has ever been successful lies in the fact that “they formed the habit of doing things that failures don’t like to do”. It’s just as true as it sounds and it’s just as simple as it seems. You can hold it up to the light, you...
