$300mil and 5 years, what would you do?

Here’s a fun little exercise that a friend and I challenged each other to do a while ago that helped get us out of our current head space and into a hyper-motivated creative space; we called it playing with possibility. It’s only one of many exercises in the whole life-design process (and there are many versions). Ultimately it’s kind of like creating a bucket… Continue reading $300mil and 5 years, what would you do?

Last weekend the most amazing partner in crime, Matt Corker, and I presented two workshops at the UBC Student Leadership Conference on “Getting out of your own way”.  It was a new experience for both of us – I had never presented at the SLC before (let alone with a remote teammate) and Matt had never presented digitally (which… Continue reading Who am I becoming?

For years I’ve been taught (in highschool, university and in the workplace) that setting SMART goals is the best way – goals that are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely.

New Years Resolutions = Epic Fail?

The stats are in  – 25% of new years resolutions are broken within the first week and 35% don’t make it past the first month. A little discouraging I’d say….. I’m really curious to hear why you think that is and I will share my two cents on it. While I think the idea of new years resolutions… Continue reading New Years Resolutions = Epic Fail?
