On Business #6

In my undergrad business school we had to take a marketing module to graduate and the professor's aim was to help us adopt the mindset of a business rather than consumer. He used different methods but I remember one in particular where we played a game about supply and the supply chain in business. The goal was to get candy from a starting point and pass is to members of the team until we reached another end. We passed it along the chain by throwing. Success hinged on the throw and catch until we got to the end where the last person dropped the candy in a basket. If someone missed a catch anywhere along the way it was lost. I remember the feeling of adrenaline when I had to make the catch because I was the last man before the basket. I loved it lol. As a business owner you have to think about each part along the supply chain. Like the game, if the ball is dropped anywhere along the way, it doesn't get to the customer. You only win when the candy is in the hands of the person who wants it. You only get paid when the candy makes it from the producer along the supply chain to the end user.

How to read effectively

Many times, the gap between what we want and what we have could be closed faster if we had insight that can be found from books (audio or written). Despite that, I still struggle to read consistently.

Many exciting changes are happening to the site. For starters my url has changed to My old address will redirect you here. A post about how it happened is coming soon as the story is quite cool. And yes more change is on the way.

The irony of stories that connect us

I was  listening to a story that missed out the good bits. The challenging parts. The omg I messed up there and had to learn quick. The funny parts. You know, those ones.

They spoke of success, which is great to hear but it wasn't enough. Something was missing.

5 of the best feel good movies to watch on Netflix UK

Scrolling through Netflix looking for what to watch next is not always my favourite thing to do. I rarely watch scary movies, shows or thrillers because they scare me and require a few days or hours to recover which I don’t really like. I look for stories with a hopeful, positive arc and my recommendations tend to reflect that as much as possible.  The next time you’re on the hunt for a feel good movie, here are a few ideas of what to watch.

Grace for tomorrow will be available tomorrow

The longer I grow into my twenties, the more I am learning that strength for tomorrow arrives tomorrow. I can’t stockpile all the strength and wisdom and courage and confidence for any scenario that may come. An easier way to live, counter intuitive as it may seem, is to believe that strength is available on an as needed basis.

Book #2 of 2017

Sometimes I read an entire book from cover to cover. Other times I take what I need and leave the rest for later if I ever need it. This book falls into the latter category. I jumped from chapter to chapter and left out some parts altogether. Yet despite that, I am writing about it because the main idea behind the book- that we can increase our capacity to handle good things in our lives - resonated with me.
