Latest Episodes

Gaining Ground

Some years are going to be years of progress. There will be years of making small, unimpressive gains in either character or circumstances. These improvements matter more than achievements.

Gaining Ground

Anti Social

There is no going back to the way things were before social media. If you choose to use it, or not to use it, both actions have consequences. Both choices have an impact in different ways.

Anti Social

Take It Uneasy

This cultural desire to embrace leisure seems to make us passive. It whittles away our potential. For this reason, the ability to live an easy, relaxed, stress-free life doesn’t seem appealing to me.

Take It Uneasy

Captive Comforts

Captive Comforts

Friendship On Purpose

At Least You Know

Even in failure, you still gain something. Even if it’s just the knowledge to do it differently next time.

At Least You Know

Do It Yesterday

It is very easy to feel like slacking off today, because we haven’t felt the repercussions of the laziness yet. Living with a sense of immediate gratification means that you are essentially damaging your tomorrows.

Do It Yesterday

Nobody Cares

There is immense power in knowing that nobody cares. It gives you the freedom to pursue what matters and to do it in full view of those people whose opinions you fear.
