Young Penelope is a real “bookworm;” she truly loves her assortment of children’s books, and her collection is large, and growing. I dare say: she is obsessed! And she is not even three-years-old yet; her parents are still working on getting that potty training thing down. So though she may be a little reluctant to leave her diapers behind, for the moment, she certainly understands the world of books, because her vocabulary is considered rather advanced. She always makes sure her sentences are understood, and really works hard to enunciate, slow and clear.

Developing resilience started for me at a young age. I left a country full of turbulence called Africa without my parents. An incident at the age of 5 caused me so much anxiety that it left me with a speech impediment-stuttering. I have struggled with this impediment all my life. At one time I was 40 pounds over weight and I was able to lose the weight and keep it off. At times my speech was hard to understand so I became a good writer and I started to keep a motivation journal.
I wanted to be part of helping people in their journey toward a resilient life. I’ve wanted to share my message... Read More
I once met a writer of some eminence who proclaimed quite openly that he didn’t have an ego. In a fit of shock I challenged him and almost laughed in his face. On reflection, perhaps my ego had gotten the better of me. But, a writer without an ego? Why, it sounded like a car without an engine!
This engine, ego, call it what you may, is what drives us to sit in quiet places, away from the rest of the world, trying to make sense of humanity, trying to form messages for humanity that will live on long after we are gone. This ego gives us the belief (misguided or otherwise) that we have... Read More
Every institution has its own thinking, policies and faculty who are completely different in terms of interacting with students, teaching and checking work with one another. This means which ever institution, students study in, it has its own stories, myths, philosophies and secrets to achieving something, doing something and getting something done. Similarly, in the quest to learning the secret of scoring an A grade students come across many different versions of stories and secrets that promises them top grades only to find out nothing works.
Whether its assignment or report writing... Read More
My journey into the domain of emotional intelligence started on what I thought was a simple path: a desire to learn how to manage my emotions. Emotional intelligence is a skill that can be used in any type of relationship. When writing my book I chose to focus on helping persons to develop their emotional intelligence while at work because on my consulting journey, I see so much need for it, but fortunately, emotional intelligence skills are applicable to all interpersonal relationships.
I started tracking the games people play at work, school, home, and church environments. In the work... Read More
interview with Ian Cochrane and his newest venture, TravelnRavel. RIGINAL.
Lucky enough to catch up with an old friend, author Ian Cochrane, bayside Melbourne, in Victoria Australia. For a brief interview. The pedantic photographer was gearing up for some photography 'leisure time.' Some people prefer to drink, chase football, the odd Kangaroo, meat pies...and drive hot Holden cars. An entrenched Aussie tradition. Ian writes and photographs the behavioral patterns of people from all walks of life, plus an intimacy with inanimate objects which take on a 'live' persona more often than... Read More

Shaun you're probably nearer the mark than most. "mmm...right right" spoken with contemplative "yawn" inflection when you join a writers' group or dare blurt out in front of established writers (any writers) you tend to scribble, usually sending all...
Very interesting train of thoughts, but I found myself asking, what about those that write under a ghost name...is it to keep their privacy, or perhaps lack of ego...I actually can see both sides, especially when you are talking about writing fiction....
