An old Tokyo office interior that’s now freshly laid tarmac

The fella below and his family before him used this wonderfully cluttered little office to run their business selling nuts and bolts. A small, but seemingly busy operation that had already been trading for about 80 years when I took this photo back in 2017. Four years on and it’s still going strong — the only difference being the man now works from a tiny desk squeezed into his storeroom down the street below. A space that does seem functional, but at the same time it’s a world away from the...

5:32 a.m.

Perhaps you're thinking that you'd like to get up and do a sunrise run but it's too hard in the lightest 3 months of the year. I hate to use an alarm clock, but maybe, like me, you have a brain that can wake itself up a few minutes before the alarm goes off. Just setting the alarm is enough to set the brain, and then you never hear the alarm. Another technique, and I like this better, is to sleep with the windows open and wake up when you hear the birds. How can you make your sleeping brain re...

Lack of consideration for others in minor matters. A loss of politeness, of gentle manners, is more significant than is a riot.” Source: Friday (1982) II. Ben Horowitz on what you...

The Importance of Social Media Storytelling

With evolving times, storytelling has also evolved. Today, many authors have come up with unique ways of sharing their stories using social media as a tool. When people say “story,” you automatically think of books or films. However, aren’t there stories around us everywhere? Your closest friend telling you about how awful her week was, to the adventure your mom tells you of your pet running havoc at home. All of these snippets are nothing less than a story. Nowadays, stories go past the “Once ...
