Ambient reading: new technology, new style of reading, new litterature.


Reading will never be the same. With new access to our new mobile devices, our reading  experience may be different with what it used to be. With audio books, and eboooks, we consume more and more words, faster and faster. We also have an opportunity to bring our own personalised experience to our own reading.Continue reading “Ambient reading: new technology, new style of reading, new litterature.”

Do something. Blame no one. Make no excuses.


I was visiting my son Axel this week-end in Tallahassee, FL., when I saw a poster tapped on his wall with these slogans: Do something. Blame no one. Make no excuses. First, I made a selfie and asked him about the poster which exhibits a photo of the new coach Willie Taggart known in theContinue reading “Do something. Blame no one. Make no excuses.”

The guilt complex


We have within us, between our ears, a simple thing called conscience which teaches us there’s a right and wrong approach to life. We know when we act contrary to our conscience we feel guilty, and this feeling impacts negatively our thoughts. This behavior bestows upon us what author David Schwartz called the guilt complexContinue reading “The guilt complex”

The long run and the short runs


“It’s easy to look at the long run and lull yourself into skipping a day now and then. But, the long run is made up of short runs,” this is what I read from a blog posted by bestselling author and blogger Set Godin. The following are some questions Set Godin asked in his post thatContinue reading “The long run and the short runs”

Tell your stories to connect and dicover: no shame, no blame!


I attended City Speaks, a storytelling event, last night in Pompano Beach, Florida, which reminds me, back in the days in my homeland  Haiti, when my dad used to gather us together, just to tell us stories. Sometimes, they were folktales of Bouki and Malis, the villain and the smart; and other times it was justContinue reading “Tell your stories to connect and dicover: no shame, no blame!”

The art of ladder climbing out of a slump in six steps: something needs to change!


The following is part of my underlining notes of my recent re-reading of the book Life Leadership Essentials Series Ladder Clibimg Out Of a Slump that I have been studying for the last two days in the context of the great comeback of Tiger Woods.

Tiger Woods is back to the top. How his ladder climbing out of a slump can help you climb your own ladder?


I don’t play Golf. I even don’t understand the game in its entirety. If I had to explain it, I would say- and correct me if I am wrong- this is a game played by affluent people who have time, money, and prestige on large pristine green grass open-air courses where they discuss business, politicsContinue reading “Tiger Woods is back to the top.

Build confidence, destroy fear, and live the life you want. No regrets!


The following notes are from The Magic of Thinking Big, an outstanding self-development book, published by Dr. David Schwartz. Fear is real. Fear is psychological. It’s success enemy No 1. Fear stops people from capitalizing on opportunity; fear wears down physical vitality; fear actually makes people sick, causes organic difficulties, shortens life; fear closes your mouthContinue reading “Build confidence, destroy fear, and live the life you want. No regrets!”

Is it true that “the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior?”


In other words, “Is it true that the best predictor of what I’ll do next is what I did in the past?” “Does this formula hold true?” “No!” “The best predictor of my future behavior is what I think about myself, my past and my future. Only when I change thinking will I change myContinue reading “Is it true that “the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior?””
