This has been one heck of year full of world travel, meaningful connection, heart ache, super highs, super lows, witnessing extreme poverty and also extreme wealth, new friends, a lotta laughs and face-hurting smiles. It was year of learning through contrasts of all sorts and as my 28th birthday approached (and recently passed), I… Continue reading 28 learning’s for 28 years
I’ve had the absolute privilege of learning about and experiencing a number of different cultures during my travels over the last few months and a few years ago as well. Even in the company I am currently working at, Mindvalley in Malaysia, there are 35+ countries represented in the office alone! While I love learning about the differences between cultures, I equally love observing and… Continue reading We all smile in the same language: Illustrated through an almost total face plant
This is an updated re-post from last year and it rings as true today as it ever has. Every father’s day I think about my life with many “dad-types”. I grew up not knowing my biological father, however, I have never looked at my situation as a disadvantage (no pitty party here!). In fact, I consider myself… Continue reading To all the “Dad’s” in my life, thank you.

To me, the culture is the soul of the organization; it encompasses how… Continue reading Creating game-changing organizational cultures using POS

In fact, I consider myself incredibly lucky to have been surrounded by such amazing role models and strong “father figures” growing up. There have… Continue reading To all the “Dad’s” in my life, thank you.
Appreciating the little things and confirming the inherent goodness in people, one observed random act of kindness at a time…. ONE: When I was at the gym last week, after I had finished the class I was doing, the guy behind me randomly came up to both me and the person beside me, grabbed our weights, and put them back for us – unexpected, unessecary,… Continue reading Last weeks random acts of kindness
I’ve been noticing this alot lately – how quickly we are (as a society) to complain. It’s often the habitual way we start a conversation – ugh, it’s raining again, my umbrella broke, the bus was late, that driver cut me off today, I was late for work – my alarm didn’t go off, my cell phone service sucks, my co-worker did…, it’s monday… Continue reading 14-day complain-free challenge
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?
