Today I am feeling a little reflective. In this reflective spirit, I have been thinking about purpose and productivity. Have you ever noticed that the less you do, the less you want to do? The same goes for productivity, the more active you are, the more likely you are to take on different challenges.
Have you ever believed in the idea of “luck” or “fortune”? I have never been one for luck, especially if it demands a rabbit’s foot, green Leprechaun, or moonlit ceremony. Recently, I can across a quote by Seneca about luck (or lack thereof) that struck home to me: “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.”
Fear is one of the strongest motivators in our lives. It grips us at the very core of who we are, and holds us back from reaching our potential. It is ironic to say that fear is a “motivator” (isn’t it a de-motivator?), but it is. It encourages us to run from situations in our lives that we perceive as “threatening” or “scary”. In life and business, I have come to recognize the importance of overcoming fear and pushing forward.
Ladies, take care of yourselves! My problem is I put work before eating (and thus, my health). If you don’t take care of your body, it won’t take care of you as you age.
To be at the top of your career, you need your health (hard lesson for me too).
Here’s to being at the top of your game in every aspect of your life!

We all wish we had more time. More time with a loved one before they passed away, more time to study for that final exam – or write that essay, more time to prepare for that big meeting, or more time to enjoy that popsicle before the sun melted it away. We all wish that we had more time – more life to live, but the reality is, we have only a certain amount of time on this earth – so make it count.
Today was a day full of meetings. After sitting stationary for so long, lunchtime rolled around and I went out for sushi; then I was back to my desk again. While sushi is definitely a tasty, and most times healthy choice, when you get busy it seems that everything else – including physical activity falls to the back burner.
