Clutch Moments

The shot at the wide-open net was missed. The baton handed to the 4th runner in the lead was dropped. The near field goal attempt to win the game struck the goal post. The clutch moment passed to me was botched. Tonight my team was part of a panel discussion on healthcare and technology with […]

My guiding principle discovered?

Typical of how most pivotal moments are introduced in my life, I was on The Twitter®. I came across a tweet describing a video on life, purpose, self-awareness, etc… I looked to my right, to my left and then exclaimed “I’m game!” and clicked the link to the video (which is embeded below if you’d like to […]

The evening of May 2nd, I checked into the Hotel Vitale. The hotel sits right on the corner of Mission St. and  Embarcadero St.–an amazing spot of San Francisco right near the Bay Bridge and the Ferry Building Marketplace.

I previously saw a a TEDx Talk by Simon entitled, “How great leaders inspire action” where he takes a look into Apple’s marketing success (I […]

In the beginning, it’s nearly brainless to work on our idea instead of part-taking in some other activity. However, if your […]

Plant a Tree Today

Too often than I’d like to count, I kick myself as I think “if only I would have done that earlier…” Today for instance, I finally called AT&T to complain about my shoddy modem that has been dropping signal (just as much as my iPhone) for about 3 months now. Everyday I can expect to lose Internet […]

It’s not what you know, but who you know. If you think about any opportunity that you’ve been afforded, how did you achieve it? Unless you were randomly picked from a pile or you won based upon your works, it very likely you were granted your opportunity because someone knew you.
