When Bad Stuff Happens

When Bad Stuff Happens

Will This Be On The Test?

Will This Be On The Test?

This is the worst question that you can ask. It indicates a complete focus on a means to an end. Learning what’s on the test to get the grades. Rather than learning to understand and expand your self. Are you learning just to take the test? Or for something greater?...

Pick Your Own Pace

You’re Already Who You Need To Be

Voluntary Compulsion

Voluntary Compulsion

We’re asking you to do this thing that’s voluntary – it’s on your time and you won’t get paid. But if you don’t do it, we’ll take note and it just won’t look very good. So you should probably do it to avoid the consequences, even though formally there aren’t any....

Collaboration Over Competition

Collaboration Over Competition

Competition is a mindset of scarcity and lack and not enough. There’s not enough…ideas, appreciation, success, rewards, time, money, energy… There’s one against the other, and only one can win, can have. Collaboration, on the other hand, is a mindset of abundance and...
Infinite Mental Bandwidth

Infinite Mental Bandwidth

I used to believe that we had a finite daily bandwidth. That, at a certain point in the day, your ideas and creativity and imagination and “juice”… Would be all used up. And then you’d kind of flip into the mundane, the data-entry stuff. That was easy to do but...

The Easter Bunny Is A Bizarre Lie

The Easter Bunny Is A Bizarre Lie

Blue Moons And Retrograde

Blue Moons And Retrograde

There’s a lot of people talking about Blue Moons and Mercury In Retrograde. A Blue Moon is the second full moon in the calendar month (of March.) Which, evidently makes people crazy, unproductive, weird. Throw in the concept of Mercury in retrograde, and it evidently...
