Why “Success” is an Unhelpful Idea and How to Really Flourish as a Multipotentialite

Words like “success” and “failure” have never meant much to me. Other people seem to care a great deal about these words, but I don’t really know what they mean. They seem so abstract and subjective.

Does Sharing Your Goals Sabotage Your Chances of Success?

You’re at a party and a friend asks what you’ve been up to.

2017: The Year of… Rest?

I like to end and begin most years by looking back and looking forward. That makes this my official “infamous goal-setting post” of 2017. Looking Back on 2016 I know a lot of us are grateful to leave 2016 behind. The social and political climate has obviously had an impact on my life, but that’s not what I’m going […]
