5 Step Recipe For Habit Consistency

  Aristotle (or maybe Will Durant) famously wrote, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” Since then, our species has been fascinated by habits. Good, bad; making them and breaking them. Our higher knowings against our lower desires, squaring off for eternity. I’m wretched at scientific reasoning,…

What Will You Pay Attention To In 2023?

  Attention is the intersection of time and energy, which makes it a highly precious resource. Yet so many of us (myself included!), don’t treat it as such. We act frivolously with our attention.

Live Simply in June: Generosity

When raising money for various causes, people are wont to imploringly remind us, “If you can’t give with your money, give with your (fill in the blank).” Said in that context, the request for gifts in other forms can come off as cringey (like, we all know what you really want). But money is just…
