Be like water

Be like water Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a... Continue Reading →

Giftedness

Giftedness is not what you do or how hard you work. It is who you are. You think differently. You experience life intensely. You care about injustice. You seek meaning.

The fifth agreement

The motivation book made me think about what motivates me and how to keep myself motivated. As selfemployed you need to be able to keep your... Continue Reading →

The rest of your life?

In one part of the movie Alfie has regrets and walks along the beach talking with an older man. Alfie is asked "What's gonna happen to the rest of your... Continue Reading →
