THE ART OF JUST SAYING NO

I’ve been a little bit TED-obsessed lately and this week stumbled upon an interesting video that spoke volumes to me: The Magic of Not Giving a F*ck, presented by Sarah Knight (which seems to be a condensed version of her book on the same topic).

SHOULD WE AIM FOR MEDIOCRITY?

In my recent online travels I came across an intriguing post, What if All I Want is A Mediocre Life?, by blogger Krista O’Reilly-Davi-Digui. When I saw the title, I felt as if it had been written for me.
