Trainspotting Berlin: Morning Misery

Collecting small anecdotes of transitory moments. One of those mornings. The night was too long, the alarm clock too early, the coffee too late—and three cups too little. As I fall over my open shoelaces in the hallway, I do wonder if I should have called in sick. On my way down the aggressive miniature dog of my second-floor neighbor greets me with noisy, squeaky barking and jumps right at my throat. My day hasn’t even properly started but my heart rate already reaches unhealthy heights and my ...

10 Excuses the Mind Will Tell You Before You Take the Next Step

STARTING NOW: NO shortcuts. NO quick fixes. NO blaming others. NO “I’ll do it tomorrows.” NO MORE EXCUSES! The mind is a wonderful thing. It’s also an excuse-making machine that frequently tries to convince us not to take actions we know are good for us. And this prevents many positive changes from taking place in our lives. I’ve had to learn to watch these excuses very carefully in order to make the positive changes I’ve made in my life: a healthier diet, regular exercise, meditation, more ...

The Underappreciated Aspects of Beauty

What makes a person outwardly beautiful? If you say it’s youthfulness, attractiveness, and good genes, you wouldn’t be wrong. But these aren’t the only factors which contribute to physical beauty. The truth is there are several underlying and arguably underappreciated aspects of beauty. While they don’t necessarily replace the aforementioned factors, they serve to augment and elevate them to the point where an individual is considered by many to be an exceptional example of true human beauty. ...

What I Think of Trump

Oh he’s atrocious. Disgusting. Abhorrent.Listening to Trump speak is like having a bucket of piss and feces poured over my head, being hosed with vomit, and then lying on a tanning bed for two hours.If we were write out the filthiest 1000 words in the dictionary with a Sharpie and feed those pages to 100 demons, then use the Dark Crystal to distill the essence of those demons into a tonic, and then have Hannibal Lecter drink that tonic, we’d end up with something that was much too angelic to ap...

Make Time for Career Management

I saw one of my favorite quotes on Twitter, shared by Pluralsight’s Head of Practices Mariah Hay… and it prompted me to make my own quote: I love the quote she shared… the older I get the more true it rings. Health and wellness is not something that people my age get to enjoy without some effort. For over thirteen years I’ve been acutely aware of the career and job search space, starting when I lost my job after having done everything I was told to do to have “job security.” I soon found out th...

Podcast #547: Achieving Success Through the Pursuit of Fulfillment

The standard route to success in modern life goes as follows: work hard in high school, score high on your SAT, get into a good college, do well in your classes, get a good job.  For some people, that path works, but for a lot of people, it leaves them disengaged and frustrated because it doesn’t actually lead to a life of fulfillment.  My guest today has spent his academic career studying individuals who have bucked the standard formula for achievement and found success on their own terms.

Lasting Beauty with Venus Et Fleur Eternity® Roses

  There are many ways people decide to treat themselves…a new outfit, maybe a fragrance, or even something simple like a latté. The one thing I consistently nurture myself with is flowers. To me, nothing lifts the soul more. Until they’re gone. My dad was a florist, so I grew up with having fresh flowers in my house on a daily basis.
