Envisioning Your Ideal Self: Tapping into your inner badass

What kind of expectations do you have for your life? Put aside the goals and results and achievements for a moment…What do you want your life to look and feel like in 10, 20, 50 years? While we can’t control exactly what will happen, we can control the general direction we’re going and what type of person we want to be in that eventuality. “If...

The Coexistence of Success and Failure

The Coexistence of Success and Failure

There's a pervasive idea that success and failure are two opposing ideas. We envision them on opposite ends of a line representing time and progress.

Why I Gave Up Netflix

I’ve struggled with the Wi-fi in my house for the past year and a half. Yes, a year and a half. I’ve had repairmen come and go, intruding on my off days and afternoons, while I've twiddled my thumbs during the 6-hour appointment slot.

Changing Lenses: How to see the world from another point of view

In the western world, we’ve gravitated towards a hyper-individualized culture. In many ways, this has been an improvement: we pay more attention to mental health, work-life balance and self-actualization.
