A Compass For Life!

In blog 2: Read your obituaries I talked about remembering our mortality every day to put our whole life into a clearer perspective.

In thisContinue reading “A Compass For Life!”

Burn Your Certificates!

Let me start off, by using the famous Spiderman movie quote – “With great power comes great responsibility”. You can translate that to – “With every power, comes its own responsibility”.
