@theartof is passionate about what they do!

The Art of LogoAfter attending “The Art of Marketing” seminar on Wednesday, I feel recharged and ready to go.

The line up of speakers included: David Usher, Seth Godin, Charles Duhigg, Biz Stone and many more…

Though each of them spoke on varying topics related to marketing, I feel there was a deeper message being relayed to the crowd.  Believe and follow your passion

To truly enjoy what you do, you need to be passionate about it and not just say that you are but feel the emotion of it.  People can be happy at work and enjoy what they do but when you’re passionate about what you do, the level of satisfaction in life overall will be profound.

Great work on the part of “The Art of…” team for coordinating another successful event!

#BreakingNews – What’s going on? When will this stop?!

Santa Monica College has just been locked down due to a shooting. 

This is too common – what’s being done?  Should people of every age be in fear of educating themselves? going to the movies? going to the mall?

How do we get to the source of the problem? This is more than a cry for help. What can we do??

My how 1200 years just flies by….

So is it possible that Poseidon and Atlantis are more than names of a boat and a Toronto Club from back in the day?

A recent discovery has revealed a lost city at the bottom of the sea.  It makes me wonder what else is out down there?  What lies way below the ocean? What wonders are deep within in the rainforests? What sits a top the highest mountains?  It’s with discoveries like these that I question…why are we really here?

Are we to live a good life, and die? Are we here to cram as many risky adventures in before our heart stops beating? Should we attain as much as we can with no regard to the way others live?  Who knows?  I can tell you what I do know.

In the years I’ve been on the earth, I’ve learned and experienced a lot – more than some people, less than others and believe we’re here to be who we want and do what we do best.  I know that doesn’t answer any questions but I’m not trying to. 

I’ve been a victim, we all have.  A victim of believing what a good life ‘should be’. You know what’s worse.  We believe what we’re told.  If you’re not ‘average’ then you’re different.  If you’re too different, then you’re trying too hard.  If you conform, then you’re not different enough.

Break the routine and live life on your terms.  Take chances and be fearless.  Fear is all in your mind.  Addiction to anything is fear controlling you.  Free mind. Free yourself.
