I think that one big flaw with blogs & social content is the pressure to project success instead of acknowledging imperfection.

I also think that some of the best lessons come from defeat rather than victory, and improvement requires self-awareness.

I have made many mistakes, large and small. I like…


You a dreamer?

Haven’t seen too many around lately.

Things have been tough lately for dreamers.

They say dreaming’s dead, that no one does it anymore.

It’s not dead, it’s just been forgotten. Removed from our language.

No one teaches it so no one knows it exists.

The dreamer is banished to obscurity.

Well I’m trying to change all that, and I hope you are too.

By dreaming every day.

Dreaming with our hands and dreaming with our minds.

Our planet is facing the greatest problems it’s ever faced. Ever.

So whatever you do, don’t be bored.

This is absolutely the most exciting time we could have possibly hoped to be alive.

And things are just starting.
