On gratitude practice

Following up on what I wrote on “gratitude practice” yesterday. I felt I should’ve elaborated a little. So, here I am with my take on what “gratitude practice” is. And trust me, I won’t ask you to cry and wail for an hour every day. Though, you can, if that’s your style. Here you go: Gratitude […]

The perfect “routine” for you

You know what everyone’s up to these days? Studying the wealthy and successful’s daily routines. And that’s so nice! It’s heartwarming for people to finally catch up to the “success leaves clues” adage. I’m a firm believer of routines. And been experimenting with that for the past 15 years myself.

I just feel that hurting someone doesn’t have to be physical or emotional. A stupid decision is all it takes to inflict pain and hurt. Last […]

Who wouldn’t? Don’t they waste a ton of time to just get everything right? Boy, I’ve worked with them. […]
