#239 – Solving The Rubik’s Cube

Ri – U – Fi – Ui It’s a code – but what is it for? A few years ago, I spent a Christmas learning how to solve the Rubik’s cube. It was one of those challenges that I thought was reserved for “smart” people. But when I heard that a cousin had learnt how to do it from...

#238 – Tomorrow Has Tomorrow’s Work

As I was about to leave some work for the following day, I was reminded of something my mum always says to me. Tomorrow has tomorrow’s work. This translates to get the work you want to get done today because there will always be another work tomorrow. For those that...

#237 – Does Age Matter?

Today’s my birthday and I ask myself if age matters. Maybe this is a question one asks when we reach a certain age ☺ As a young child, I used to think that people in their forties were old. As I am now in my forties, I no longer think that. Funny that eh? I’ve met...

#233 – To Try Or Not To Try?

“Do, or do not. There is no try.” – Yoda I’ve been thinking about the word “try” and how I feel about it. Without noticing, it’s a word that crops up again and again. On the one hand, it opens up new worlds when you say “I’ll try it out and see what happens”. On the...

#232 – Remembering Names

“Mama, how do you remember names? My mother is amazing, she remembers people’s names from 30 or 40 years ago and since I feel I don’t have this as an inherited skill, I asked her how she does it. She said that she pays attention when the person says their name and...

#231 – Do You Trust Your Intuition?

I know some people aren’t always comfortable talking about their intuition but whatever you call it, be it your gut feeling or a sixth sense, we often know and feel more without always knowing why.  I wrote about trusting your intuition before (1) so this time, I...
