    The Book of Awakening: Having the Life You Want by Being Present to the Life You Have by Mark Nepo

    A few times a week I go for a jog or a walk. On the last stretch of my trail, I venture along this small country road that falls between rice paddocks. Recently, in autumn when the rice has grown to its fullest, almost ready for harvest, I notice that part of some paddocks has fallen. (more…)

    “I like to challenge myself. I like to learn – so I like to try new things and try to keep growing.” David Schwimmer

    I recently set myself a swimming challenge. I wanted to see how much I could improve my time to swim a 1500 meter sprint. The goal is to get under the first ever world record set by Henry Taylor back in 1908 of 22:48. The current best time is held by Sun Tang at 14:31 which is absolutely ridiculous.

    A few months ago when starting out I managed to do it in 26:30 – I had some work cut out for myself. Within a few months, I managed to do it in 23:30. I still have work to do and it will be a challenge to get it under the 22:48, but I am close. (more…)

    The opposite to doubt is certainty, conviction, confidence, and trust.

    In this book – Merchants of Doubt, the authors go bravely into territory that many have not dared. They attack vital leaders, scientist and people of influence that have in their time very successfully created doubt among the public.

    “Perspective is the way we see things when we look at them from a certain distance, and it allows us to appreciate their true value.” Rafael Pino

    When you take a photo, and the image you see is blurry, it is necessary to adjust the focus. It is better to zoom out then to zoom in and once you do the image becomes clear again, and at that time you can begin to zoom back in for closer visuals.

    In life, when things are not going as planned, when there is a pain or when the world feels as though it’s against you, crumbling down, we must practice and learn to adjust our perspectives. (more…)

    “Let death be what takes us, not lack of imagination.” BJ Miller.

    I listened to this TED talk by BJ Miller a while back and had recently watched it again. It has an essential message about death and the process of dying as it relates to living life more fully.

    It’s not a topic we often discuss nor is it a subject that we contemplate regularly. In this interview, BJ said, “We cannot solve for death, yet, but we can design for it.” (more…)
