So many things have happened this past week, mostly positive but I can only seem to focus on the one thing/person that has annoyed me. Last week, we were astounded when a gymnast who gave us a gold medal got criticized for the stupidest thing and you hope and pray that this disease is not […]

Risin’ up, back on the street Did my time, took my chances Went the distance Now I’m back on my feet Just a man and his will to survive I have heard that when the tiger is ready to attack, it only has the attention of its chosen prey with all eyes on its unfortunate […]

If you catch yourself saying this a little too often, you might need to ask if you’re operating at Cause or Effect. The Think@Lean In group met up with Sheila Singam of Human Equation for an afternoon to understand our Spiritual Quotient. In the process, we learned when we operate at Cause, we operate from […]

Office politics…I absolutely hate it. I hate it with a vengeance. I had this heated discussion about this topic with a friend recently. He’s giving me tactics and strategies on ways people get ahead.

I think I was feeling covetous about a particular situation then and it was troubling me. No, I’m not going to […]

I first met Jen Siow at the end of 2013 through an exercise buddy of mine. She told me briefly about him and asked if I knew him. I have heard of his name, a veteran in the advertising industry with fashion shoots. He’s apparently photographed over 5000 models over the last 30 years. We […]
