Coming together, like in the times of a disaster

I was very blessed during Tropical Storm Harvey in that I had no flooding, didn’t lose water, internet, nor electricity. I only lost a bit of sleep due to rain noise and gained a small stain on a ceiling with no idea where the water actually came from. Very blessed indeed. However, many of my […]

Falling into fixed mindset in pursuit of belonging

Last week I watched a clip of an approximately 20 year old kid who was wearing a polo shirt with white supremacist insignia. For whatever reason the boy was separated from his group and consequently challenged why he is supporting such radical views. Very quickly, het took off his shirt and said that he was […]

Using your superpowers

Last weekend I re-watched “Unbreakable” with my fiancé. I don’t want to give away too much plot, in case you haven’t seen it, but what I will mention is a line that stuck in my head. One of the characters said something to the effect of: We live in desperate times, which scream out for […]

Taking things for what they are rather than what they should be

I spent the last 9 years working on multi-billion dollar construction projects. More specifically, my job was analyzing data and preparing various reports to explain how well the project is doing today as compared to the past assumptions made at the time when it was funded. Since these projects take up to 10 years to […]

Worrying about the downside vs. focusing on the upside      

Last week I saw a clip from an interview with Warren Buffet, one of the world’s wealthiest people, who said even though he made some business mistakes, that’s never really bothered him. What concerns him the most is actually pretty difficult to measure, which is what are the hugely profitable investment opportunities available that he […]

Childlike curiosity

The other day when I was scrolling my way through Facebook, I came across a video where one of the most popular soccer players, Cristiano Rolando, disguised by a make up crew as a regular person went out to practice at a city center plaza. His juggling skill were amazing, but no one really cared […]

Slashing choices all the way down to action

You can call me a simple life early adopter. It wasn’t by choice though. See, for the first 10 years of my life I lived in communist Poland where as a kid we all dressed the same, watched same TV shows and got the same type of bike for our first communion. Didn’t bother us […]

Working hard … but towards what?

Most of us would say we have a strong work ethic and strong work ethic is something we admire in others. However, from my observations, talking to others and looking through various posts online I can’t help but notice how everyone feels overworked. On the other, I recently read an article outlining the most common […]

Measuring personal growth: tuning into your emotions

While lessening judgment of others is a huge step towards inner peace, to keep the momentum going, one has to eventually address self-judgment. This is way harder. For me this was tougher, because I was going by the common advice centering on not trusting our emotions. After all, aren’t they fleeting? I disagree. I believe […]
