Mindset for Success

Be an Artist. A robot acts on command only. An artist creates without being asked. She loves the creative bliss of acting on her own accord, and lands opportunities as a side-effect.

Invest your Free Time. Enjoy your weekend, sure, but don’t be afraid to invest some free time in landing an awesome job. Never dread Mondays again!

Do What Makes You Come Alive. Doing work that makes you come alive is not some luxury just for a few lucky people. It’s your birthright. What’s the point of being born if you’re not really alive, day to day?

Quote of the Week

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

― Howard Thurman
