Silence

One of the most powerful tools I have developed for myself is silence. Through silence, I’ve learnt more and gained more. The world is full of people shouting. Spouting their belief, their opinion, their view. It can be overwhelming sometimes and it doesn’t give you the space to develop your own belief, opinion or values …

Expertise

I’ve never been great at following things through. Because of that, I have a wide range of skills and experience at lots of different things. This has often held me back because I can’t easily define what my expertise are. It’s good to have a range of abilities, but I’ve made most progress when I’ve …
