Path Superiority

“No man ever steps in the same river twice. For it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.” —Heraclitus There’s no magic formula to winning.

North Star

Have you ever really thought about what provides the overarching personal compass that points out the right way for you in life?

Get Off The Train

The lucky ones figure out their path in life early on. How that came about is sort of irrelevant if you’re on the right track where everything seems to be happening ‘for you’ instead of ‘to you,’ despite all the challenges you have to go through. On each train, there’s at least one lost soul […]

My Dad
