Sweat more in training so you’ll bleed less in war

I heard that from Robin Sharma many, many years back and it’s still the core theme of what I do on a daily basis. And as I was digging up my archives for a gem or two of inspiration to keep going, I found this Lewis Howes’ interview with Robin a couple of years back. […]

Drip by the drip

The past two weeks have been full of action. Lots of time on the mat rolling with several accomplished BJJ athletes. It’s humbling and equally frustrating to realise how much you don’t know what you don’t know with each passing session. Though, I’m much more comfortable with going full-on sparring these days, I get stuck […]

The 6 universal principles of persuasion and the most important one…

I originally found this gem of a video on Tina Roth’s (swiss-miss) site. It describes the six universal principles of persuasion based on Robert Cialdini’s seminal work, Influence. It’s informative, subtle and quite powerful. Look, it make me post this video here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=710&v=cFdCzN7RYbw Science Of Persuasion – Influence at Work In case you don’t have […]

If you’re shaking your head, hear me out. I wasn’t the to believe that myself until I met a few who changed my perspective. More recently, I’ve had the opportunity to interview people for my podcast (to be launched on the 1st of November) where they shared some of their most personal stories during and […]

Yes, but…

Years ago one of my mentors taught me the power of sharing effective feedback how it carries over to almost all parts of our communication as a whole. I wasn’t convinced because it appeared to be just a small change — from “yes, but…” to “yes, and…”. That doesn’t sound like a lot, right? Precisely […]

Staying on top of your field with content overload

I found myself organising my Feeds yesterday. Mostly taking out the inactive feeds and deleting a few that weren’t adding value. And then, I deleted a whole stack of grouped feeds because I got frustrated. There’s so much stuff to read that you just cannot prioritise. Yes, I know there’ll be some I can still […]
