Failure is an option!

The memorable phrase that came from NASA “Failure is not an option” has given people the wrong idea about the positive aspects of failure. One afternoon, when my daughter was about eight years of age, she came into my studio with a white piece of paper and a word written in bold, big letters across the entire width of the paper. The word was F.A.I.L. With a cheeky grin on her face, she asked me, “Dad, do you know what FAIL means?” Sensing that she was up to something, I replied, “You tell me.” With...

It is time to start pretending!

I’d never thought that I would recommend people to pretend, but today I’ll glorify the art of pretending.   The commute to work has always served as a good mental transition. During this transition from a place of rest and leisure to a full-on work environment, our mind has had the benefit of a commute to create the psychological shift required to properly focus on work.   If you are occasionally working from home, it is important to know that working in bed and/or working in pyjamas doesn’t really set us up psychologically to be at our...
