LOI (letter of intent)

When I look at the date of my last blog post (August 4 for the record), I cringe a little… Not blogging for 3 months is basically committing “blogger suicide”: You’re no longer relevant because you’re not as social or active. You’ve basically given everyone a reason not to care anymore. As a matter of fact, I haven’t posted in so long that I am no longer a…

The Power of Three

I’ve always liked the number three. Sure, two sounds balanced but three is more grounded, well rounded and stable. With two, it’s one or the other. This or that. Usually OR not AND. Good or bad. Right or wrong. Give me two things to choose from and I’ll say both. Give me three options and usually the best is saved for last. (Third time’s the charm,…

My Ego will get the best of Me

Ego. It’s something that’s been on my mind for quite sometime (I know because this post has been sitting in my “drafts” for more than a month). Everyone has an ego. I’ve seen how it operates in me and other people in both business and life. It doesn’t just come in the form of arrogance or stuck-upness.  It’s not just about vanity or showing off. Ego…

More than Cleverness, we need Kindness

I was listening to a mix on 8 tracks, my favorite music app, during a run when I came across a speech in a playlist of songs. Even without the Hans Zimmer music accompaniment, it’s an inspiring speech. [vimeo 24379918 w=500 h=375] Here’s an excerpt of the speech below.

On My Radar: MAKERS

March is Women’s History Month (in case you didn’t know :)). What better way to celebrate than to share the stories of women who have built the past and shaped the world? CEO’s, designers, activists, athletes- you name it- are featured on this site I came across: Some you may have heard of. Some may be completely new to you. I watched these videos while…

Promise yourself

I don’t have any tattoos, but if I ever got one.. I would get the word “promise” inked onto my skin. The passage below explains why, much more eloquently than I ever could. Read on and don’t blame me if you want to get a “promise” tattoo yourself! 😛

STTA- something to think about. Something new I thought I’d do, because these are the kinds of things I’m thinking about even though I might not be doing a long blog post everyday. “The truth is that everyone else is just as indecisive, self–doubting, and frustrated as you are, and if you just do your thing, you’ll never have any reason to envy others.” First of many more to…

Reality Check

This past Sunday, almost a week ago and before Sandy happened, I said I wanted to go to this new Korean restaurant Gaonnuri. I was craving Korean food because I missed my mom’s cooking and wasn’t with my family during this week. I also thought it would be interesting to go to a restaurant that was located basically in the middle of the divide between…
