Waking up in the morning and reaching for the phone is really easy. Even easier to quickly check the e-mails and being immediately sucked in by all the demand coming from right, left and center.
Or reading something that immediately could ruin my day.
Been there, done that.
I used to stumble into...
Are you ready to take charge?
Are you prepared to walk into some discomfort?
There is a reason I ask those questions - because if you're not - this podcast is not for you.

You're right - it isn't.
The thing is - good can mean many different things for different people.
AND - many don't. Feel good that is...
Those who know me a bit longer know that during the last years I've always chosen one or some words each year.
