Do in order to learn.

Learn in order to do.
Whether splitting the atom or inventing a new style of sculpture it all begins with the same thing - doing.

Without it nothing happens.

Without it you are not learning.

Without it you are not on the cutting edge.

You are an explorer and you represent our species.
Dive deep.

Find your treasure.

Bring it back and share it with our world.

Everyone needs to practice, even the greats.
Some people are born with innate skills, a predisposition, for the career path they are to eventually take. Others have to toil a little harder, to put in more work in order to develop skill in the direction they wish to go.

Wherever you fall on the continuum one thing is certain - everyone can, and needs to practice, in some shape or form, if they want to move forward and evolve in their line of work. 

Known skills can always be polished further. 

New ones adopted into your routine.

The potential for growth is always there, no matter who and where you are.

Every day I run some hot peppers through my system.

I have found eating the very hot ones (anything over 100,000 on the Scoville rating) to be one of the easiest ways to boost my mood, clarity of thinking, and general feeling of well being.

The research being done on them, and capsaicinoids (the chemicals which give rise to the heat of chilies), is incredibly fascinating with their benefits being noted to extend far and wide from disorders such as heatstroke to diabetes.

Definitely an indispensable aid in both the kitchen and medicine cabinet.
Fresh scotch bonnet chili (Capsicum Chinense).

Exceptionally hot.

Exceptionally beneficial.

All members of the capsicum genus (from bell to habanero) are rich in the vitamins C and A, and the mineral silica, making them great for improving skin elasticity and shine. What makes the Scotch Bonnet stand out in particular though is its exceptionally high heat (Scoville) rating. Clocking in with between 100,000–400,000 Scoville heat units (SHU), the Scotch Bonnet adds a formidable punch to your meals.

Try them chopped fresh into guacamole or even in sweet desserts with chocolate, their fruity bite works well in both sweet and savoury domains alike.

If you have had the pleasure of being around me in person over the past half year to a year ;) you may have equated me with a zombie who has had his face constantly in the computer, with little to no time for anything or anyone else.

The explanation for this, aside from my general usual enjoyment of isolation from people ha ha, is I have been working pretty intensely on some new projects which are finally starting to come to fruition and hopefully, will be seeing the light of day soon if all goes to plan.
I won't reveal too much at the moment as things are still taking shape, other than that they involve the coming together of some interesting worlds and philosophies (one being chocolate and nutrition) which when combined together have the potential to create some pretty radical change and transformation.

If this peaks your interest then head over to and sign up for the email newsletter to stay up to date, or follow us on social media, if that is your thing. Lots of fun, free, and easy tips for people looking to bring their energy, mood, and physical structure to more peak levels.

Finally, and most importantly, I apologise for not showing up as fully as I could in supporting you in your life recently, and probably in general. I am recommitting and striving (again lol) to being better and improving at this. There is a definite big chink in my armor here.

Try as much as is physically possible to focus your complete, undivided attention on at least one of the tasks that you carry out today.

Even just the simple task of bringing your attention back, again and again, if its drifts, to whatever this task is you have chosen can have profound effects in reshaping how your brain reads and process information and stimuli. 
How we chose what we do, how we go about doing it, this determines the value and quality of an activity. 

Washing dishes. Sweeping the kitchen. Pouring a glass of water.

Treat them all as works of art

New book of the day. 

One for everyone. 

Courage is not the absence of fear, says Osho. It is, rather, the total presence of fear, with the courage to face it. This book provides a bird's-eye view of the whole terrain-where fears originate, how to understand them, and how to find the courage to face them. In the process, Osho proposes that whenever we are faced with uncertainty and change in our lives, it is actually a cause for celebration. Instead of trying to hang on to the familiar and the known, we can learn to enjoy these situations as opportunities for adventure and for deepening our understanding of ourselves and the world around us.


"The word courage is very interesting. It comes from a Latin root cor, which means heart. So to be courageous means to live with the heart. And weaklings, only weaklings, live with the head; afraid, they create a security of logic around themselves. Fearful they close every window and door - with theology, concepts, words, theories - and inside those closed doors and windows, they hide. The way of the heart is the way of courage. It is to live in insecurity; it is to live in love, and trust; it is to move in the unknown. It is leaving the past and allowing the future to be. Courage is to move on dangerous paths. Life is dangerous, and only cowards can avoid the danger - but then they are already dead. A person who is alive, really alive, vitally alive, will always move into the unknown. There is danger there, but they will take the risk."

-excerpt from 'Courage The Joy Of Living Dangerously' by Osho

Only gamblers know what life is.
Move more on the path of uncertainty. Yes, you may fall. Yes, you may get hurt. But, with this gamble comes tremendous vitality. A sharpness, an aliveness that no other thing can bring, and this, no price can ever match.

Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out.

Hatch a plan. See yourself there in your mind. Do the daily work to make your vision a reality. 

By consistently showing up each day, again and again, realigning and recommitting where need be with our original intention, we eventually reach where we set out to be. 

Small steps are better than no steps.

Eventually we arrive.

Bring all that you have to all that you do, no matter how menial you may perceive the task to be. 
Greatness is not in the thing done. The greatness is in the consciousness that you bring while you do it.

Touch a pebble with great love; it becomes a diamond. Smile, and suddenly you are a king or a queen. 

Bringing your whole awareness to everything you do. Living ordinary moments in an extraordinary way. This is the secret to a creative life.
