Finishing Novels

So much to do so little time. I have lost the concept of free time, there is time at work and then there is time working at home. If I’m not working on something at home I’m slacking (not relaxing) the same way one would slack at a job.  It’s kind of stressful but I manage I guess, this is..

What is Your Dream?

What is Your Dream?

I was having a discussion with a friend of mine about the merits of working and what we would do if money was no object. If, for example, the government started a true universal basic income plan and everyone was handed enough money to buy food and pay rent on a good place, what would people do? ..

(re)Discovering Discipline

(re)Discovering Discipline

As I’m sure many of you know I was once a pretty good athlete. I am that typical “peaked in high school” type of former athlete, where once I got to university and fell in love with partying and laziness I fell away from that life. Unlike those other peaked in high school types I don’t blame..

Embracing What I Am

Embracing What I Am

I’ve been listening to a lot of lectures and podcasts lately that center around personality types and psychological motivation. These got me doing some online personality tests then I did a Creative achievement test and a few others (just to be thorough and because I was bored). I learned a bit..

Nobody Cares – and that’s a good thing

Nobody Cares – and that’s a good thing

This is one of those things that is easier to say than it is to believe. I think we are all so caught up in ourselves that we find it hard to comprehend that no one really cares and that if they do it really does not matter. I know for me this was something that took a while to sink in.

“Infinite Jest” and Inspiration

“Infinite Jest” and Inspiration

I finished reading “Infinite Jest” by David Foster Wallace a few weeks ago and have been sitting and digesting it for a bit.  I know that millions of words have probably been written about this particular book and I’m not going to add much to the conversation there, instead I want to examine..
