What Would Chairs Look Like If Our Knees Bent the Other Way?

2 Comments 13 December 2013

Challenge conventional thinking and don’t buy into marketing. Dairy farmers want us to buy more milk so all of their commercials will be about convincing us that dairy milk is good for us. Running shoe companies want to sell more shoes so all of their commercials will be about convincing us about the benefits of […]

1 Comment 21 November 2013

There are 2 approaches to dating – physical and emotional. There are many ways to meet people today but you can categorize them in 2 ways – online and in real life. The problem with meeting someone online is that you can get away with saying things you wouldn’t normally say to them in person […]

You Tie Your Shoes Wrong

0 Comments 30 August 2013

As the title suggest, you [probably] tie your shoes wrong. What do I mean by that? There’s more than one to tie your shoes? Well, yes in fact there is. Instead of going one way around the bunny ear you make when doing a loop, just go the other way. Seems simple enough right? Try […]

Wandering Around Amsterdam

0 Comments 19 July 2013

On my way to compete in the 2013 WFDF World Overall Flying Disc Championships, I had a 6 hour layover in Amsterdam so I decided to take the train downtown and do some exploring. Now, I’m the type of guy who isn’t afraid to ask directions if I’m lost but I figured as long as […]

Exaggeration in Marketing

0 Comments 02 July 2013

My biggest pet peeve with marketing is when companies make ridiculous claims or take something that’s real and use it to their advantage to sell a product. The most recent case of this comes from a commercial for the 2014 Mazda6 in which Mazda claims the new Mazda6 is flipping convention on its head just […]

Don’t Lose Faith

1 Comment 07 June 2013

I’ve shared the famous speech by Steve Jobs from Stanford’s 2005 Commencement several times and I share it again today because today of all days it seems particularly fitting. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you […]

My Favourite Concerts

1 Comment 27 March 2013

Growing up in small town New Brunswick, I listened to a lot of music that I thought I’d never get to see live. AC/DC, Metallica, Tom Petty, Queen to name a few. My ultimate wish was to see Queen live but over the past 8 years, since moving to Calgary, I’ve been lucky enough to […]

Happiness Best When Shared…Really?

0 Comments 19 February 2013

I think this famous quote, from the movie Into the Wild, is missing the point. The point of living. Which, to me, is to find and create meaning. I believe that a life of meaning is a life fulfilled. Life isn’t always about being happy. It’s about doing something you’re passionate about but that doesn’t […]

Clarity of Self

0 Comments 30 January 2013

Once you have developed a clarity of self, you can start building the life you want. Clarity of self doesn’t have to be fully developed however, since even a bit of clarity about who you are and what you want is all it takes. Once you have this clarity, you will choose to spend time […]

Having Dreams is What Makes Life Tolerable

0 Comments 18 January 2013

This quote, one of many great ones from the movie Rudy, stands out in my mind because to me it defines what life is all about. Having a dream to be somebody, to do something or to go somewhere. What is your dream? Mine is to challenge myself, to do something I’m passionate about, to […]

My Top 15 Songs As a Teen

1 Comment 08 January 2013

As a kid, I grew up listening to my dad’s record collection, buying cassette tapes from Colombia House (11 cd’s for the price of 1) and recording songs off the radio onto cassettes. I still listen to many of these songs, over 15 years later and some of them still remain among my favourites. What […]

3-Day Hungry for Change Detox Results

2 Comments 07 January 2013

I mentioned in my post yesterday that I was going to extend the detox to 10 days (probably 12 since it’s easier to do the detox in groups of 3 days). What I really like about this detox is that it’s creating habits for me to buy groceries and cook. Looking at recipes isn’t that […]

About halfway through day 2 of the Hungry for Change 3 Day Guided Detox, I decided to extend it to 10 days (they say that you can extend to 7 or 10 days if you’d like). I decided to do this for a few reasons: I feel amazing and I want to keep going I’m […]

Detox Day 1: Listening to My Body

0 Comments 05 January 2013

What was great about the first day of the detox is that I felt noticeably more clear headed. Eating when you’re hungry and eating clean food made for a great Friday. All of the meals were delicious, I felt great after each one and I even felt like I sweated more easily when I worked […]

I initially subscribed to their newsletter after watching the documentary Hungry for Change… Aside: This documentary, along with documentaries like Vegucated, Food Inc., […]

A Story About You

0 Comments 05 December 2012

There are a handful of professors who stand out from university but most notable were my 2 philosophy professors. The most recent philosophy course I took was on Consequentialism with Darren Domsky. What struck me about him the most was how comfortable he is with himself. He’s so confident, so sure about who he is and […]

I Like You…But I Don’t Want to Talk to You…

5 Comments 20 November 2012

How many times have you had this happen to you? You write one of your friends a message on facebook. You don’t hear back from them. A week, two weeks, three weeks go by and no reply. Then one day, you post a picture or update your status and your friend, the one you wrote […]
