I’ve noticed that no matter how much knowledge I’ve got I stayed rather vulnerable – some people and events could easily knock me down. They still can, but due to the last mentioned resource – I do know how to gather all pieces of me together, to rise up and again to SHINE!
If know one thing about me, it’s probably that I’m absolutely obsessed with learning. Curiosity is my driving force. Over the years, I’ve learned a great deal from good old-fashioned books, hundreds of blogs, a few trade magazines, and several academic journals.

Searching to an answer to life brought me to www.ACIM.org – A course In Miracles Talk about the ultimate Lifehack. This has really done a 180 to how I approach pretty much everything. A word of advice, at first it may seem like gobblygook but is meant to study over the course of a year. If your going to do it, then do it. If not don’t jump into it just yet. No, not a Bible thumper, just another Lifehacker like the rest of you.
