Attention spans are getting shorter and standards of living are getting higher
We want it all and we want it now.
We’ve forgotten what it feels like to go without
To make a sacrifice
To give something up now, for something more important in future.

We are short sighted
Caught playing the short game
Looking for short cuts
And quick returns
When the real value is in seeing the big picture
And in playing the long game.

If you want something that’s built to last
Something built on solid foundations
It’s going to take some time,
You can’t expect it all to happen right here, right now.

That’s not how it works

It’s all an illusion, created by a market intent on a quick sale.
A distortion of nature

Because in nature, it’s only when you plant the seed in fertile soil 
And nurture it properly
That it will grow to bear fruit.

Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.

  • 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
