Worst Case Scenarios are a GIFT.

A lot of people cower at the foot of, say, everything they want to be doing, in fear of the “worse case scenario.” And in some ways, they’re right. YES. The worst case scenario might mean horrifying consequences. It might mean shame. It might mean losing your virginity dignity. YES. The worst case scenario might […]

Sexy Matters. Whether You Like It Or Not.

Sexy matters. We hate to think that’s true. We look at the girl strutting down the sidewalk, who’s obviously “trying too hard,” and we silently disapprove. But it’s not because she’s trying too hard. It’s because she makes us feel inferior.  To soothe our egos, we immediately start telling ourselves the story that we’re “better,” […]

    Having recently launched my own company, I’m know EXACTLY where this article is coming from. I’ve started forcing myself to go out and meet ACTUAL people. I’ve booked to spend a week in Slovenia at the end of November because GOD I need the time apart from the Interwebs.

    It’s so easy to just work your ass off, week in week out, and before you know it, your grogginess is lasting to well in the afternoon. You’re burned out, and everything seems like so much more of a chore. That’s why I’d also put another one on this list…

    Put on some music ridiculously loud, and just dance and sing as loudly as you can. Alternatively, get to work on a punchbag. Anything to just release that tension and get a bit of adrenaline flowing 🙂

      Yeah! Crank those tunes! That was the best part about my trip to the USA (just got back to Chile now) – I bought some CDs and just blasted it in the rental car that I had. I miss doing that sometimes, since I don’t have a car here. 🙂

        haha, that reminds me of this time we were on a road trip across the uk. We somehow ended up listening to a CD of ‘The Baseballs’ (a German group who do AMAZING covers of top pop songs but in a rock ‘n’ roll style), with the Robbie Williams track on blasting down the road, singing at the top of our lungs, then out of nowhere a rabbit runs out into the road…we all see it happening in slow-motion and all in harmong scream ‘noooooo’, as we hit the poor creature, then seamlessly go back into singing along…. totally irrelevant to this topic, sorry! Just something you reminded me of =P
