Perspective

Perspective – how important, yet forgotten. As humans, we are often self-absorbed and obsessed. We’re obsessed with our own issues, our own feelings, our own concerns, our own thoughts and dreams. But what if you could look at your own life in a new light, with a new perspective? What if the things that fill […]

Where We Came From and Where We’re Going

There are those that have life handed to them on the proverbial silver platter. Whether money, position or prestige, they can succeed without really having to try. Some of those people go on to do great things of their own accord, while others let their talents lay in vain. But, this is not about the […]

Three Remain: Faith, Hope & Love

Everyone has secret fears, worries and thoughts better left unsaid. In the rare and unfortunate case, those are so great that you’d trade your life to eradicate them.  …A happy topic this is not, but a worthwhile one just the same.

Why I Still Believe in the American Dream

“I used to subscribe to the American dream. You go to college, get a 9-5 job, get married, buy a house, have kids and happiness is yours. 2 years ago I realized – not everyone’s dream needs to be the same. I went to a well-regarded business school. I married my college sweetheart. We bought […]

The Importance of Tenacity

When you think of the things that you pride yourself most on – what comes to mind? For me, it’s empathy – being kind and compassionate – and tenacity. What does it mean to be tenacious? Some people may say stubborn, others say persistent. I tend to agree with the latter. The dictionary definitions include […]

Life is Either a Daring Adventure or Nothing at All

Helen Keller said it best. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all. The last 6 weeks have been nothing short of crazy. I’m adjusting. I’m still learning balance of work and life. The line is so blurry, it’s hard to know where one ends and another begins. I’m working more than ever…it’s […]
