Love Oracles. Over the next 50 days, I will be posting one Oracle a day. Just for fun! According to the box, you could change your love life by consulting these Oracles! I don’t know about that, but it’s a challenge and I am up for it! How about you? Wanna play?
I have been a passionate advocate of Emotional Freedom for more than 26 years. In this video, Susan David does a great job of explaining the concept of Emotional Agility and how there are no “good” or “bad” emotions. They are all part of a feedback system that is necessary for living a meaningful life! Fully-alive, fully-expressed, fully-realized!
I love the way Susan talks about dead person goals!
One of my favorites. Years ago we lingered over a Chocolat Chaud discussing names for our first daughter. We loved the name Angelina, which means little angel or messenger, so viola! It became Coco’s middle name. Check out the video.
I have always loved adventure. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to travel to see the world and to expand my view of life, reality, and what is possible. Over my lifetime I have clocked up a cumulative total of 12 years of full-time travel to 54 Countries and 500 cities. No short trips for me. I love to linger, sip coffee, chat and imbue the atmosphere.
Most of us are overscheduled and have no time to feel. Love requires feeling. No feeling = no love.
You’ll find the futurewherever people are having the most fun. Well then, I would say interactive video games are predicting a new world of virtual reality.
After the recent US election and the BREXIT, it appears there is a backlash against globalization. As if stopping immigration and putting up trade barriers are going to fix it! How are the protectionists going to stop the free flow of human capital and ideas? Perform a Men in Black Memory Eraser?
I love this video by Steven Johnson about how inventions happen from fun and play as much as anything via TEDEd. Check it out:
Many of us wonder how biological organisms evolve and adapt over time. This time-lapse video shows how bacteria become resistant to antibiotics. It also shows how mutations by the few survivors prompt the evolution.
The ultimate failure is extinction, which occurs when there are no survivors. When a small number survive they mutate. Makes me think about how changes are happening so fast today that it’s our consciousness that is evolving faster than our biology.
I believe the new frontier is consciousness education.
Check this out. This infographic shows how little of the ocean we see from the surface. I think this is a lot like life. What we see represents only a fraction of what is out there. When people argue over what is real and what is not, they are denying that they are most likely wrong!

Romance. History. Wow. Love this Turkish Airlines video…
From the top of the Galata Tower, where Hezarfen flew across the Bosphorus, to the Grand Bazaar that holds the secrets of Chinese silk clothes… Are you ready to witness the tale of Istanbul, through a magical and poetic story?
It takes energy and dedication to focus on details and continue this over time. All great works of art, gold medals, moving design, music, financial and business success involves this same energy and dedication to details that most people consider boring and repetitive.
What great work will you engage in today?
21,674 hours of practice will move an audience. Wow.
In this video, Ran delivers a thought-provoking talk about why he gave up porn. Over the past two decades, I have coached, talked to and counselled many couples and men who were addicted to watching porn. It’s a controversial subject, and I suppose anyone who is addicted does not welcome the enquiry nor the suggestion that porn may be ruining their life and relationships.
In a relationship, unspoken resentment and festering issues cause disconnection and unhappiness. This leads to more and more distance, which in turn, leads to a desensitisation. Meaning, that the couple requires more stimulation for arousal. This is where porn often makes the problem worse or is one of the original causes.
The solution is to resolve the relationship issues, which will lead to a cessation of porn.
Porn is usually not isolated. It is part of a package of behaviours that include; cheating, lying, prostitution, gambling, drugs and alcohol abuse. Not to say that everyone who uses porn has all these, however, they will have more than just one…
Gender inequality in 2016 and beyond is inexcusable. Half of the world’s working-age population are not realizing their full potential, due to gender discrimination.
A recent McKinsey report finds that $12 trillion could be added to global GDP simply by advancing woman’s equality!
I believe this should be a top priority for business and political leaders alike. Let’s work together to equalize opportunity and compensation and end once and for all the issue of a woman being paid less for the same job as a man.
In addition to economic discrimination in order to take advantage of women, prejudice denies women equal access to leadership positions that are top-paying and influential.
Consider for a moment the composition of the S&P 1500 boards of directors:
In other words, the business world remains dominated by men and according to McKinsey, this inequality is costing the global economy trillions of dollars a year.
My own research has shown that teams and companies led by women are better managed, more innovative, and less susceptible to the dark side of the hubris of success.
Personally, I am a champion of all forms of equality starting at home and extending to our workplaces, boards and all levels of leadership. This is more than pure idealism! If you analyze the bottom line you too will see its profitable!
If you find yourself resistant to gender equality, consider why that may be? Is it because you are sexist? insecure or simply just prefer to dominate? Perhaps your gender bias is invisible to you. The best way to know for sure is to look at your results. Are genders on your team or in your company balance around the 50/50 mark, or more like 60/40, even 80/20?
This one change, of accepting nothing less than gender equality could add millions to your bottom line.
