Inside This Episode

  • Motivational Quote

"Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is. At that point in their lives, everything is clear and everything is possible. They are not afraid to dream, and to yearn for everything they would like to see happen to them in their lives. But, as time passes, a mysterious force begins to convince them that it will be impossible for them to realize their Personal Legend. This force appears to be negative, but actually shows you how to realize your Personal Legend. It prepares your spirit and your will, because there is one great truth on this planet: whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you really want something, it's because that desire originated in the soul of the universe. It's your mission on earth." Paulo Coelho – The Alchemist

  • Productivity Tip
    • A good soundtrack for the day is a must. Whether it’s a day I’m on the go or sitting at my desk, music always seems to get things started.
    • I’m also a big list maker – it always helps me to stay focused and the little gratification that comes with “crossing” something off the list is fantastic!
