A life less ordinary

26th February 2017

Yesterday I spoke about getting distracted It’s incredibly easy to procrastinate To allow yourself to become distracted When you don’t love what you do There are LOADS of ways to design your life Almost infinite numbers of methods, and variations And yet you are stuck hating your life Hating your body Hating what you do?

Why ‘just do it’ is utter bullsh*t

18th February 2017

“It’s kinda obvious.. but”
