How to Set Goals – The Dreambreaker Method Goal setting done right

I have always been a dreamer. Still am. I just know how to hide it better now, but I still dream seemingly impossible, idealistic, utopian dreams. And it makes sense to generally stay quite about my dreams till they are broken down. I sometimes pretend to be the dream breaker. Someone who rushes in, grabs […]

Two Ways to be Passionate About Your Work

“Do what you love,” “Do what you are truly passionate about.” This type of advice gets thrown around a lot. But how on earth do you become passionate about something? Imagine a scenario where you love your work. When your work doesn’t feel like work. When other people look at you with envious eyes, wishing […]

Finding Limits

“Know Your Limits. Then Ignore Them.” Complacency should be treated as a sin. It has cost me years in lost time and hundreds of thousands in lost revenue. It doesn’t matter, I say. But I say that because I am good at justifying things to myself. We all are. Your brain is the best lawyer […]

Why I Can’t Have What You Have
