How to cross the chasm (and live to tell the tale)

The other side… The world that we imagine, wish for, fantasize. If we could escape, that’s where we’d go. It may be the sound of the sea, the splashing of the surf, a fluttering sail, the whirr of a fishing line. It may be the smell of grass, the whack of the club on the […]

Timecounting 101: The True Price of Waiting.

15,000 Days. That is the number of days most people spend in “working life” till retirement (assuming that you start a career in your early 20’s and retire in your early 60’s). Yes, that is not a typo: fifteen-thousand days.

“Stop, Look, Listen…” – for adults.

Last week we briefly explored how our brain prioritses through the reticular activating system, the importance of repetition, affirmation and the whole “Rah-rah”.

Did this happen to other professionals? How was it that other creative genies were coming up with different answers, and why could I not have come up whit THAT […]

Who are you influencing?

What are you doing? I mean that seriously, what are you doing? What is your influence, your cause? So what is my point?  – First, some context: The “forces” that are the most powerful influences on the future of our planetary ecological integrity are driven not by corporations, but by people. People who have forged […]

In memory of Bob Brozman.

Absolutely shattered to find out that the amazing Bob Brozman is no longer with us. I had the great fortune to meet the great master on two occasions, to learn from him and converse about all things mind and music, and also to see him perform live. He had a wealth of knowledge that he […]
