  • Mindful Monday: Meditation Made Easy

    I was reading James Altucher's book Choose Yourself this morning and in it James relays a story about Gandhi where he tells his compatriots that he needs to set aside one hour a day to do meditation.

    Dancing at the Edge: The Crossroads of Fear and Excitement

    Multipreneurs are much admired. I don't just say this to be smug. People often marvel at how much we get up to and the sheer number of diverse projects on the go at any one time.

    Whiskers, Whispers and Wayback Wednesday

    Remember Old Spice? I'm not talking about the uber-viral transformation of the brand in recent years epitomized by the "Old Spice Guy" suburban-porn style TV commercials (although that was pretty impressive). I'm talking about the way it smelled when men wore it in the 40s, 50s, and 60s. The way the Old Spice Old Guys wore it. My grandfather was one of them. Yours was, too, I'll bet. He shaved
