• Because nothing worth doing is ever easy

    It’s about this time every semester I feel the full weight of Uni. Sometimes I find myself asking the question through gritted teeth, “Why am I studying again?!

  • When your dreams don’t happen overnight.

    Okay, I am guilty as charged here. Maybe I am hypocritical in writing this article, as it describes me to a tee. Well, at least it has in the past. Most of my working life has been about setting ‘BHAG’ goals – otherwise known as big, hairy, audacious goals – and hammering through the work […]
