It does not matter if you only ten minutes or ten hours a day to work towards any goal. What matter is the you keep moving forward. Fail forward succeeded forward. 

Two Wolves 

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.
“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

A beautiful constraints
  • Constraints are positive not negative
  • When confronted with constraints the first stage you enter is the victim stage. With ambition step into the transformative stage
  • Don’t fall into your normal comfort zone or repeat old habits when faced with constraints
  • Ask propelling questions (answer with impossible answer)
  • Use your can-if mind ( we can-if we)
  • You have more sources of resources 
  • Creative ambition need emotional motivation 
  • Zero resources can lead to a fertile outcome ( think outside the box) 
  • Embrace a culture of constraints like Ikea, Nike, and Unilever.
  • Scarcity/abundance age in an infinite loop 
  • See constraints in a different light. 

The Good Life

studio_20161106_095510
When some people talk about money
They speak as if it were a mysterious lover
Who went out to buy milk and never
Came back, and it makes me nostalgic
For the years I lived on coffee and bread,
Hungry all the time, walking to work on payday
Like a woman journeying for water
From a village without a well, then living
One or two nights like everyone else
On roast chicken and red wine.
