Idealistic Check-in

With last week’s reboot of Project 52 - which I had been participating in (by publishing at least one blog post per week since 1 January 2010) - I wanted to have a look book at the ideals that I set myself at the beginning of the year.

Life Alignment

In recent months - especially since the beginning of the year - I’ve found that the more I align my passions & the things that generally makes me happy in my life, the more I tend to be productive, inspired, motivated & just content. Now this probably seems

First to Market

In the extremely agile online world, there seems to be a premium placed on getting to market first with a new feature or product. But I’d like to contest the viability and probably the suitability of that premium, since I don’t believe that it’s

Switching to Tumblr

I’ve been enjoying my tumbling content on here ever since I switched to this design (which is built on a standalone install of WordPress) late last year. To be honest though, considering that I was situated alone on my own island, my tumblog content was never gonna have

Revolution

I’ve been looking at my life in the wrong way. Everything I’ve been aiming to implement in terms of my workflow, productivity, emotional well-being, happiness, ambition etc. have been within the average context of the rest of the world. Why haven’t I gone about

When Hard Work Ain't Really Work

Last week I was able to write a really long piece on being prepared to work hard. For my 3rd Project 52 post, I’d like to expand my thoughts on the matter of hard work and would like to explain why I don’t necessarily that I&
