Everything is routine, just going through the motions, dealing with the same old issues.

A life in stagnation, feels a little hopeless.

But stagnation is an illusion, it doesn’t exist, because in reality, it’s only either growth or decay.

Forwards or backwards,

Living or dying,

If you’re not growing, you’re in decay, the beginning of the dying process.

If you don’t use it, you lose it.

If you’re not stimulating your intellect, it degenerates

If you’re not physically active, your body weakens

If you’re not cultivating your character, it easily gets corrupted.

And growth is the by-product of complexity. 

Introducing complexity into your life, spurns growth.

Complex problems to be solved,

Physical challenges that need to be overcome,

Giving your attention to things that allow you to reach beyond what you believe yourself to be capable of.

There is no growth without an element of complexity and that also includes assuming some risk.

Growth doesn’t occur in a comfort zone – 

Complexity doesn’t mean chaos – but rather sits right at the border of order and chaos

The zone of optimal development. 

This is where the magic happens.

  • The Decision of No Decision
    Indecision is a decision in and of itself, even though you may not recognise it as such. Your decision to do nothing – to let things play out on their own. It’s taking a back seat and waiting to see how the chips may fall.
  • Taking Your Second Chance
    It’s pointless, because history will always be confined to history. Instead it may be time to look yourself in the mirror, at the risk of not liking what you see. Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself. It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons, And being able and willing to take the hits. So take your second chance. Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.
  • Symphony of Sadness
    There’s a great symphony in sadness A million things conspiring beautifully together to set a sombre tone. It’s a tragedy, no doubt.  Irrational at times, often transcending words or reason....
  • Communication Is Not a One Way Street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving It All Behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
