I didn’t really plan on writing about this book, The Confidence Gap, and it’s not because the information in it wasn’t valuable, but to me, it just wasn’t anything new. This is in no way to sound snobbish, but I’ve read (more than I can remember really) so many books that talk about confidence, motivation,…Read More

Why Can’t I Keep My Room Clean?
For as long as I can remember, I am and have always been unorganized, at least, to the uninformed viewer looking in. My desk at work is messy. My desk at home is messy. My room is messy. My living room is messy. My bathroom is messy. My kitchen is messy. It’s all messy. And…Read More
An Honest Conversation With Myself
Today is February 28th, 2021, also known as the very last day of the second month of the year (if it’s not a leap year). What’s significant about this day? It’s a day where 80-90% of people who embarked on their “New Year’s Resolution” have now officially put it off till next year. From my…Read More
The Road Less Travelled isn’t always the empty one.
If you read the title of this post, and you thought to yourself, “That quote sounds familiar”, you would be right. (Bonus points if you can name the recent book that I took it from.) I’ll reveal the title at the end, but if you already know it, then you’ll probably know where I’m going…Read More
Too Much of a Good Thing. Do I deserve this?
For as long as I can remember, I’ve held a mindset that I believe is not only a toxic mindset but one that many of us, maybe even most of us, share. That mindset would be: If things have been going good for too long, something bad is about to happen. Now, what makes this…Read More
My Evolving Thoughts on Jordan Peterson
Jordan Peterson. For most people, that name will elicit one of 3 reactions. The first being one of extreme admiration. The second is maybe an extreme distaste for the man, and finally the third being absolutely no clue who this guy is at all (a much bigger number than you’d expect). Over the years, as…Read More
But Which One Am I?
Similar to my last post, this topic I wanna speak about I feel as if only a handful of people will understand EXACTLY where I’m coming from. And to those of you that do understand, I hope that this serves as a reminder:You’re not alone. But what is it that I want to speak about?…Read More
We Don’t Miss the Person, We Miss the Feelings
I feel like only a handful of people will really know what I’m trying to say here, while the rest may not understand, and even some may think I’m being naive or misguided. But to those of you who do understand, I think you’ll really hit home with this one. How many times have you…Read More
Don’t Change Too Much
If there were two little words that I’ve probably used more than any other two words, it would be these: “I’m sorry” You might already know where I’m going with this, especially because of the title, but I want speak on this topic anyway. And I’m not going to say anything mind-blowingly new here. Several…Read More
A Modern Approach to: How To Win Friends and Influence People
So this is going to be a little bit off-topic then my more recent posts. I’ve recently been listening to the audio-book How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie, a classic if you may, and I’m not really trying to provide any kind of summary, as you’ll find about 10 million of…Read More
