Recently, I’ve been trying to eat healthier meals during the week. I found a food prep service in Toronto that delivers ready-made meals that actually taste pretty good. All you need to do is warm them up and you’re good to go.
However, I found that after my meals I would still crave something sweet and delicious as a treat. I tried to experiment with buying some baked goods or some candy or chocolates, but I found that once I had one bite, I couldn’t stop myself from eating the whole thing.
I’ve also been trying to reduce my consumption…
4 Ways Writing Will Make You Smarter
Writing makes you a better thinker, because writing IS thinking.
Learning to write, then, is learning to think and communicate. And those who think and communicate well have the world at their fingertips.
“The best way to teach people critical thinking is to teach them to write…There’s no difference between that and thinking.” -Jordan B. Peterson
Your ability to think and communicate will determine your success in many areas of your life such as your career and relationships.
“You need to learn to think. Because thinking makes you act effectively in the world…
Don’t make the same mistake as me…
One of the most common pieces of advice I heard when I first became interested in becoming a content creator is the importance of choosing and sticking to a niche.
The idea was that the more specialized your content was, the easier it would be to build an audience and monetize that audience.

How To Be The Master Of Your Domain
On December 08, 2020, something special took place.
In a far corner of the Internet, two of my favourite people sat down to talk.
Comedy Legend Jerry Seinfeld appeared on the Tim Ferriss Show Podcast; and it was excellent.
The interview was full of ideas and insights about Jerry’s creative process and general approach to life.
The lessons were so good, I had to write them down.
Here, you’ll find my biggest takeaways from the interview, specifically about Jerry’s approach to writing and creativity.
I hope you find them as valuable as…
Today, I deactivated all of my social media notifications.
No more popups notifying me someone followed me, left a comment, or liked my post.
I stopped everything. Cold-turkey.
Now, you might be wondering what made me take such drastic measures, especially since I actively use all of these platforms to publish and distribute my content.
After all, isn’t it important for me to know how my content is performing? Shouldn’t I care whether people are engaging with it?
Well, while social media can be a powerful tool for communication and marketing, it can also be an absolute deathtrap for our…
If there’s one equation I think we should all remember in life, it’s this:
Your Input = Your Output.
Programmers have a saying: “Garbage In, Garbage Out.”
Well, that applies to humans as well.
We are all controlled and shaped by our inputs.
Your beliefs, mindset, attitude, behaviour, social circle, career choice, investment strategy, relationship status, and so much more are all affected by what you allow into your mind and your life.
Here are just some of the inputs that shape us every single day:
One of the most common mistakes we make when setting goals is choosing the wrong size of goals to pursue.
If we choose a goal that’s too small, it will lack the emotional juice needed to motivate us to stick with it and see it through to completion.
But, if we choose a goal that’s too large, it can overwhelm us, and leave us feeling more defeated than motivated.
It’s kind of like the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears — you need a goal that’s just right for you.

Here’s the cold, hard truth:
Life is not for you; it’s against you.
Every day you’re alive, it’s actively trying to destroy you and everything you care about in this world.
Life is the struggle to keep death at a respectable distance. Death seems to want to move in prematurely and get us, so to have a good, long, flourishing life, what do you have to do? Push back.
- Jim Rohn
Life doesn’t want you to be happy.
It doesn’t want you to succeed.
Most of the time, it’s actively working against your best interests.
And yet, even though…
I love learning and sharing powerful ideas to make life better.
