Managing Life: The Humble Checklist

I’m perplexed by our tendency to NOT proactively manage the things we know are important to us. If you’re one of those impressively disciplined, meticulous, proactive and analytical individuals (I am not, yet) who has all your shit in order (finances, relationships, work, health, files on your laptop) this post isn’t for you.

Having the balls to accept coming trends

‘Disruption’ was probably one of the most overused business terms and ideas last year. “How do we disrupt our product, industry, company, underwear etc?” I get it, change happens overnight and suddenly nothing is the same anymore.

A lesson learned from a man in adult diapers

I found myself in a well known grocery store late one night just before closing. I arrived at the checkout till just as an old man was finalizing his purchases. He seemed aware and agitated at my arrival, as I started taking items out of my basket. The checkout clerk was having some issues scanning […]
