struggle or battle – your choice

There are only two approaches available when you choose to undertake the challenge of overcoming any obstacles to a desired achievement. 


BATTLE is undertaking any challenge that you expect to win.

STRUGGLE is undertaking any challenge that you expect to lose, but feel compelled to engage in because you’d like to win.

Motivation for BATTLE is the decision of “I’m going to do what it takes to keep going until I am victorious.” This motivation sustains you until you win. 

Motivation for STRUGGLE is the idea of “I’m frustrated with losing, so I’ll try to do better.” This motivation does not last, and so you inevitably lose while having wasted genuine effort in the process.

BATTLE mindset: “I have an opportunity to win here if I work smart & strong. And if I don’t win this time, I’ll just keep investing in being smarter & stronger until I do.”

STRUGGLE mindset: “No matter how smart & strong I am I can’t win, so there’s really no point in investing in being smarter & stronger; it’s futile.”

Obviously, you must commit to one approach or the other before you begin taking on a challenge.  And you’ll need to train yourself to always make the wise choice.


knowing vs. understanding

Knowing is like having money. Understanding is like the ability to make money. 

A common problem is that many people want to know without making the effort to understand, the same way they want to be rich without actually taking the responsibility for making money. 

From a practical standpoint, at the end of the day, even if you have money it can disappear in a number of ways. But if you have the ability to make it, then you’re assured a measure of security by having this capability.

Which is why I’d say the ability to earn money is much more valuable than just having it. And why understanding is far more valuable than just having knowledge.

Naturally, having money is comfortable & convenient, but being able to earn it at will is really much more empowering. Similarly, knowing is comfortable & convenient, but understanding is what moves you through life successfully.

What is this site about? Giving you the resources – the Hows & Whys – to make the most powerful & confident decisions in your life.

I’ve always been fascinated by understanding what goes into making both the best and worst decisions – and the key differences between the two. After all, if all decisions were as simple as “Why? Because!”, Life would be easy….but sadly it ain’t so. So I’ve created this website to offer some clarity on the thoughts & feelings that drive mindful decision-making – in all people across all environments.

Specifically, I’ll be looking into the ideas, impressions and Blind Spots which you ought to be thinking critically about, along with some encouraging recommendations as to how & why to do that critical thinking.

My goal is to create insightful, thought-provoking content that will hopefully inspire you to make mindful decisions and feel confident in pulling the trigger on them. I’ll do my best to provide you with relevant information that you can use – here & now – to make the most of your unique personal and professional potential – here & now.

How do you pronounce “Joo”? “Yo”……really.

What is Mindfulness? Being consistently aware – without any positive or negative value-judgment whatsoever – of how your immediate thoughts are interacting with your immediate environment. i.e. Being aware of how your thinking is impacting & interacting with your circumstances.
