Last night, in a dream of all things, I was reminded of a very real encounter that changed my perception for so much the better.

The Power of Lists

Like making lists? Me, too. Even though my lists may not look like lists in the traditional sense, they still serve a pretty cool purpose.

Impervious to Change

Work looks the same as play today. Hard to tell if you’re on Insta or looking at spreadsheets accounting just sent over.
