Parting the Waters.

In 1890, William James coined a term called the Stream of consciousness in an attempt to “to depict the multitudinous thoughts and feelings which pass through the mind of a narrator.” He did this in his book, the Principles of Psychology. In the Christian bible, there’s a part in the story of Exodus where Moses…

Succeeding Systems.

Math, like all man-made systems, presents a man-made challenge to succeed the systems that we set in place for ourselves. Whether or not we succeed that threshold is up to us, together or individually. How many times has a scientific discovery suggested that we re-write the textbooks? There’s a person alive today who suggested that…

Anything.

…Even after collecting all of your resources, you were left with a choice to make: where do you commit your energy and attention to first? What could you live without doing? The toolbox you made served you wherever you went, and now your choice is yours again. How do your tools serve you best? Anything…

Meaning Making Machine.

About five months ago I started an adventure as a driver. Of all the platforms that are available I chose to start with Uber and Lyft. I enjoyed this adventure into free enterprise, and gladly began the transition into life beyond the employment paradox. Nine months prior to this span I started using the service…

Non-fiction fiction.

The fictional narrative that a character creates for themselves within the lens of non-fiction. The events themselves are real but their perception of them are based on the…

Assets.

According to some, there’s shame in living in your own world. According to others, there’s a universe in every single one of us. Fiction wouldn’t be birthed if it wasn’t for the capacity we have to even possess a sense of our own inner world. As crazy as it might sound, products, services and systems…

Finishing

There are more finish lines in the minds of men and women than have ever been crossed in a race. It’s so easy to start that more starting lines are created than finish lines to begin with. For an example, how does it feel to run endlessly on a treadmill with no finish line designated?…

The Truth.

Reading different types of material exposes you to different perspectives even if you choose to do nothing with the information. In the rawness of neutral information that challenges your physical, mental and emotional habits, you are given a choice in how you respond. If you’ve chosen not to respond in the past, your conditioned response…

Training.

There’s a saying that ‘we don’t rise to the level of our expectations, we fall to the level of our training.’ There’s also a saying suggesting that ‘slow is fast, and fast is slow.’ Demonstrating them reveals more, faster, than all the explanations in the world. If you ask three trainers of different disciplines about…

Precursor.

Everyone has a capacity to observe their own thoughts, so what do you do once you recognize the impulse for what it is – an impulse? I suggest that these impulses are precursors to the things that you are capable of doing. For every person that makes you angry, you receive an opportunity to express…
