TO BOLDLY GO WHERE NO MAN HAS GONE BEFORE – STAR TREK’S LESSON ON LIVING YOUR BEST LIFE

The show, ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’, has always been a favourite of mine. There have been many debates on which episode is the best, if asked, my pick is the episode named ‘Tapestry’ (episode 15 of Season 6). While this series was always engaging, this particular episode offered several lessons about how we are to get the most out of life and how we are to boldly...be bold! 

THE MAN WHO LOST TWO JOBS

I worked with a gentleman many years ago (Let's call him John). Every time I think of him, I am reminded of the lesson that I learned from him - that no matter how bad things may be, I must always be my best self, no matter what. In what become a highly teachable moment, he became the man that lost two jobs. 

BE YOURSELF – TO THE LIMIT! (Part 1)

...When I was younger and wanted to be seen as “cool”, I could not understand why people seemed to be so intentionally uncool. Dressing and acting cool and having people’s approval was important, but these people were not cool and could not be bothered to even care....I realized that was kind of the point, not to be cool but to be happy just being yourself.
