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 […]

Interstellar is easily one of my top 10 movies. Easily. I won’t tell you much about it because honestly […]

Audio Books Are Great For Road Trips

0 Comments 04 November 2014

This year compared to any other in my life has seen me on the road more than ever. From January 1 – October 1, I was home for a total of about 5 weeks. It was hard being away from home, driving tens of thousands of miles, most of them by myself. When I’m on […]

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 […]

Love is Like Karate

0 Comments 03 March 2014

Why is love like karate? If you look at how the ranking system works in karate, there are different colours of obis (which is like a belt) which represents the level one has achieved. The most widely practiced style of karate, shotokan, uses the following ranking system (from Wikipedia): Level Obi colour 9th kyū orange […]

Beautiful. Sad. Real. Haunting. Inspiring. Tragic. The moral of the movie… Happiness [is] only real when shared.

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 […]

The 2 Approaches to Dating

1 Comment 21 November 2013

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 […]

Wandering Around Amsterdam

0 Comments 19 July 2013

On my way to compete in the 2013 WFDF World Overall Flying Disc Championships, I had a 6 hour layover in Amsterdam so I decided to take the train downtown and do some exploring. Now, I’m the type of guy who isn’t afraid to ask directions if I’m lost but I figured as long as […]

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

1 Comment 07 June 2013

I’ve shared the famous speech by Steve Jobs from Stanford’s 2005 Commencement several times and I share it again today because today of all days it seems particularly fitting. 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 […]

My Favourite Concerts

Growing up in small town New Brunswick, I listened to a lot of music that I thought I’d never get to see live. AC/DC, Metallica, Tom Petty, Queen to name a few. My ultimate wish was to see Queen live but over the past 8 years, since moving to Calgary, I’ve been lucky enough to […]

Happiness Best When Shared…Really?

0 Comments 19 February 2013

I think this famous quote, from the movie Into the Wild, is missing the point. The point of living. Which, to me, is to find and create meaning. I believe that a life of meaning is a life fulfilled. Life isn’t always about being happy. It’s about doing something you’re passionate about but that doesn’t […]

Clarity of Self

Once you have developed a clarity of self, you can start building the life you want. Clarity of self doesn’t have to be fully developed however, since even a bit of clarity about who you are and what you want is all it takes. Once you have this clarity, you will choose to spend time […]

Having Dreams is What Makes Life Tolerable

0 Comments 18 January 2013

This quote, one of many great ones from the movie Rudy, stands out in my mind because to me it defines what life is all about. Having a dream to be somebody, to do something or to go somewhere. What is your dream? Mine is to challenge myself, to do something I’m passionate about, to […]
