Living a More Stress-Free Life

0 Comments 20 May 2016

If you are like most people, then you sweat the small stuff that you cannot control. Small stuff that other people do which may or may not have anything to do with you. But you let it affect your day. But it doesn’t have to be like that. You can live a life that is […]

0 Comments 11 November 2015

An unlikely friendship develops between a wealthy quadriplegic and his caretaker, who was just released from prison. This movie is in french and is on Netflix, with subtitles.

The Paradoxical Commandments

0 Comments 08 July 2015

by Dr. Kent M. Keith People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered. Love them anyway. If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives. Do good anyway. If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway. The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. […]

Failing Is Our Best Tool For Progress

0 Comments 23 December 2014

If you’ve never failed, then you’ve never taken a risk. You’ve never had a dream and put your heart and soul into achieving that dream. The opposite of failure is success. We cannot succeed with failure. We learn from failing. We must fail and fail often in order to have progress. Failure doesn’t have to […]

Living, Loving, Learning & Losing

0 Comments 22 December 2014

On May 17, 2001, the worst thing that could have happened, happened in the lives of me and my family. My mom died. For about the next 10 years, I was in so much pain and I was so scared to love again that I would tell myself that I loved someone but I would […]

Must See Movie: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

0 Comments 20 June 2014

I first heard about the movie “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” just through some online ads and short teasers on Youtube but I always skipped over them. Then during a flight from Chicago to Calgary in May, I happened to see it under the available movies. I figured why not since I had nothing […]

What Would Chairs Look Like If Our Knees Bent the Other Way?

2 Comments 13 December 2013

Challenge conventional thinking and don’t buy into marketing. Dairy farmers want us to buy more milk so all of their commercials will be about convincing us that dairy milk is good for us. Running shoe companies want to sell more shoes so all of their commercials will be about convincing us about the benefits of […]

There are 2 approaches to dating – physical and emotional. There are many ways to meet people today but you can categorize them in 2 ways – online and in real life. The problem with meeting someone online is that you can get away with saying things you wouldn’t normally say to them in person […]

You Tie Your Shoes Wrong

0 Comments 30 August 2013

As the title suggest, you [probably] tie your shoes wrong. What do I mean by that? There’s more than one to tie your shoes? Well, yes in fact there is. Instead of going one way around the bunny ear you make when doing a loop, just go the other way. Seems simple enough right? Try […]

Exaggeration in Marketing

0 Comments 02 July 2013

My biggest pet peeve with marketing is when companies make ridiculous claims or take something that’s real and use it to their advantage to sell a product. The most recent case of this comes from a commercial for the 2014 Mazda6 in which Mazda claims the new Mazda6 is flipping convention on its head just […]

Don’t Lose Faith

I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you […]
