It’s not too late to make 2019 amazing

The teeniest, tiniest sliver of 2019 remains. I hope it’s been a great year for you. Either way, though, it’s not too late to make it even better. A bold claim, I know. You’d need to do something that works. Something with proven results,…

60 powerful and achievable New Year’s Resolutions

If you’ve heard what folk are aiming for in 2020, I’m sure you’ve noticed a few things. Some folk are too ambitious. They want to do everything next year. Others are too vague. They want to “be healthier” but don’t seem to know what…

Are you sure you want 2020 to be different?

As the sands of 2019 run low, lots of folk are seeing the New Year as a fresh start. A chance to be better. Richer, happier, healthier, freer. Leaving all the old problems behind and really living without regrets. Except… A goal without a…

Find ease and comfort in the Christmas aftermath

The typical way to spend Boxing Day (aka the day after Christmas for my foreign friends) is in a stupor. Partly buzzed, partly hungover. Partly bloated, partly grazing. Watching cricket – a sport so slow it doesn’t matter if you pass out while watching…

On the 12th day of Christmas, my true love bridged form and soul

Geez, the 18th Century was a materialistic time. Can you imagine your true love getting you so much… stuff? Honestly, what would I do with five golden rings – race them downhill or something? Eleven pipers and twelve drummers are just extravagant… not to mention…

The best Christmas present, Emma Stone-style

I saw an interview with Emma Stone where she said the best present she gave was her presence. Coming from the wrong person, that’s wildly arrogant. But, I don’t know. She seems fun to be around. Maybe there’s truth to that. I’d sure like…

The gap between frustrating and frustration

Here’s a common mistake folk make when using English. They say things like: “That’s scary.” “He’s so frustrating.” “This is confusing.” I’m not innocent here, though I am getting better. If you want to live a happier, healthier and better life, then here’s how…

Elevate your life to base hedonism

Hedonism sure gets a bad rap. It conjures up images of too much women, wine and song. Sure, those things are fun. But it’s hardly a fulfilling life if it revolves around those. Purpose, duty, discipline – these are what they tell us are…

The Rudolf Protocol

The standard approach to self-improvement is take a weakness of yours and improve it. If you’re skinny, lift weights. If you can’t draw, practice it. Maybe take a class. It’s a great strategy. And you might wonder – what else could you possibly do…
