TRAINS

During my short time in Japan, I feel like I rode half of the country’s trains. The process was made massively more complicated by all of the luggage I was carrying. As I think back on those times, I am happy that I made it! I battled countless escalators, treacherous stairs, and was saved a - Read More -

RESTART

In the past six months, I have traveled through as many time zones. I started with a lovely trip to Lisbon to visit friends and meet Mooji, and from there, I went on to visit New Jersey, NYC, LA, Austin, and Houston before returning back to Africa. During that whirlwind of a trip, I was - Read More -

IT’S NOT WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE

It’s not what it sounds like…it’s what it is. When I think back to life in Corporate America, I remember all of the times people discuss long hours spent working and early morning calls. Another person would chime in about even longer hours. Though the spirit was often one of complaint, it became a bit - Read More -

FOCUSED ATTENTION

Most of the time it feels like I have a million things to do. I’m very good at adding projects into my life haha However, I find that I am not able to make progress on any of them unless I focus my attention on one task at at time. As I said to a friend - Read More -

THREE REMINDERS

Barcelona is one of my favorite cities in the world. I was happy to return last week, and as before, I left with many wonderful memories. While reflecting on the trip on the (long) journey home, I was reminded of three things: 1. You cannot get moments back, no matter how special. 2. When you - Read More -

TRUE VIRTUE

If the whole world praises him, he is not elated. If the whole world condemns him, he is not beaten. In a word, praise and blame cannot change his conduct. Such a man possesses true virtue. As for myself, I am still among those who are influenced by the opinions of others, like the wind - Read More -

WHAT DO YOU VALUE?

Today, concepts of time, energy, prioritization, and excuses were on my mind. In the simplest terms, I believe that you tend to do what you prioritize and make excuses for everything else you don’t do. However, I also think that what you prioritize may not be in alignment with what you truly value. So I want to ask this - Read More -

MOON STRUCK

This week, I had the great fortune of being able to visit with my uncle in Portland! I had not seen him for many years, though it didn’t feel it had been that long ago. I guess it is no coincidence that familiar is derived from family. Being around my uncle felt so familiar. He reminded me of my - Read More -
