I’m a big believer in making big mistakes and that’s how you figure your life out and who you are and what you want.

Learning from our mistakes is often touted as a powerful learning method. Many notable humans give testament to its value but really, no one likes to fail. In the world of business, it seems that some organisations are interested in failure in a new measure – the return on failure!
You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying, to run by running, to work by working; in just the same way, you learn to love by loving.

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
I recently listened to a conversation with Hugh Mackay about how to lead a meaningful life. Hugh Mackay is a social researcher who shares his observations and insights about life. His latest book is Beyond Belief which examines the search for meaning.
Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably why so few people engage in it.

What is the point of having experience, knowledge or talent if I don’t give it away?
Or having stories if I don’t tell them to others?
Or having wealth if I don’t share it?
I don;t intend to be cremated with any of it!
It is in giving that I connect with others, with the world and with the divine.
