My Life Goals Template

At the end of every work year, we usually have an annual review – mostly to answer questions such as: Did we meet our goals? What went well? What didn’t? It’s basic, but answering these simple questions helps a lot in setting the direction for the coming year. So I wondered, why am I not […]

For You, this 2018: Be Bold As F*ck

Are you a journey or a destination kind of person? I used to ask that question a lot, until I realized they’re one and the same. The destination is the journey is the destination. Everytime I reach a goal or a certain level of success in any aspect of life, there’s always a next level […]

For you, this 2017: Your Most Amazing Self Yet

I usually write  a somewhat elaborate new year’s wish on every first of January.  (At least I’ve been doing so since 2012.) For many reasons worthy of another post, it has taken me three and a half months to finally release one for this year. And this may be the simplest by far: Dear You, […]

For you, this 2016: People You Want to be Like

A couple of years back, I told Jim Ayson, my late boss, that one of my personal laws is to surround myself with people that I want to be like. I was pertaining to him. Before I met Jim for the first time, I had googled him extensively. I found, among many others, that he […]

For you, this 2015: Be Mindful

I had a good talk with Lucille over wine right before the holidays. And it mostly revolves around her 2015 resolution: mindfulness. It’s interesting because mindfulness is a word I have overused in the past year. I have gone to such point that I’ve obsessed about tracking myself in an attempt to be more mindful of everything that […]

For you, this 2014: Make Beautiful Things

In the beginning of 2013, one of my commitments to myself was to write more – both here in my blog and in my personal journal. I was pretty consistent in the first few months, and was very happy about that for a while. But then, as with most new year’s resolutions (and as a […]

For you, this 2013: Here and Now

Sometime in August 2012, I fasted from social media for thirty days. It was such a cleansing experience. Technology “has no bounds” they say, and so sometimes we spend too much time in the future, or in some other place far away. We spend gatherings with our heads stuck on our mobile phones or tablets […]

For you, this 2012

I woke up — and I haven’t even gone out of bed yet — feeling that I have to write my own personalized wish for everyone this 2012. It might be a bit more exhaustive than initially planned, but here it goes: Dear You, This year, I hope that, for once or twice or seven […]
