What is this?

Daily, snackable writings and podcasts to spur changes in thinking.

A map for a better brain. The way we think is both our greatest tool - indeed our only tool - and very often it is also our biggest leash. We are only who we think we are. Our opportunities are also limited by who other people think we are. It stands to reason that if we’d like to change who we are, we must start with an effort to change our thinking.

NOTE: While it appears as though this blog has just started, there's over 100,000 words worth of entries that have been prewritten, edited, locked and loaded. In other words, you can count on helpful thoughts everyday.
