We had my son’s parent teacher interviews at school the other day.  He had 100% success rate but not the kind you really want.  His success?  He managed to have every one of his teachers say, “You’re a pleasure to have in the classroom BUT stop all your procrastinating and get your work handed in, [...]

Thinking creatively does not always refer to creating works of art, e.g. painting, music or poetry. Thinking creatively helps you get out of tricky situations.  Thinking creatively empowers you to think outside the square and make the most of every opportunity that comes knocking on your door.

Do you know the difference between being fearless and being brave?  You might think they're the same thing but they certainly aren't.

You know what I find really interesting?  When someone is moaning about how life sucks and yet they are so set in their ways they refuse to open themselves up to new thinking.  Do you imagine that if you had all the answers then there’d be nothing to moan about?  Well, you would think so. [...]

One of the scariest things in life is when you have no control and need to trust someone else, because there are times that you need to do that.  You can’t always be the one who makes all the decisions and leads the way, and how you do things is certainly not the only way [...]

You know the feeling...a million things going around in your mind and a to-do list as long as your arm.  It seems that there's a never ending list because no sooner do you cross one thing off, then another task gets tacked onto the end.  And don't forget the usual running around and routines that must be [...]
