Because It’s Fun!

One of the most profound observations that I've made over the years is that humans are at their best when they feel their best. Which means we all have tremendous incentive to become more masterful at creating the high vibe moods - feeling great. The biggest mistake that I observe people making in the pursuit of excellence and their dreams is...

Embracing Uncertainty

Embracing Uncertainty

Uncertainty is the design of the universe in which we exist, from which we emerged. It's the nature of our universe, and is also therefore our very own nature. We've been taught to fear that uncertainty. And that's bad teaching.
