Short-film version of an article I wrote a while ago on Medium. It’s called ‘Nothing is “hard,” — only your resistance to it.’ Here is that article: https://medium.com/the-mission/nothin… All footage taken by the author in and around Bangkok and Koh Samui, Thailand, 2019. If you lack direction and focus each day, try out my planner book: ‘Book […]

When I was small, I would often imagine myself doing and achieving amazing things. Things that most people would laugh at today. Acting in adventure films on the big screen. Going into space as an eccentric billionaire. Being an animator for big Disney movies. Being a major science-fiction writer. Owning and living in an enormous […]

I’ve been criticised for most of my life. Mostly, these centre around being ‘too quiet,’ ‘boring,’ ‘serious,’ ‘morose,’’sleepy,’’like I’ve just woken up,’and ‘angry.’ I’m pretty introverted, have slitty eyes, and it can look like I’m sleepy and grumpy a lot of the time.

Your mama says you’re lazy. Your friends say you’re lazy. You feel lazy. You act lazy. You feel down because you fell into the trap. You agreed with them, and you start to believe it yourself. I’m lazy. It’s true. The poison takes hold. And so you act how you think, and you think how […]

I’m falling through wet cloud. Mist surrounds me, fills my skull; my heavy arms. Nothing on which to hold, just fear, and the dullness of doubt. Nothing tactile. So I distract myself from this chaos. At least someone else’s Netflix story gives me somewhere to go. Holds my hand. A journey of escape, at least […]

Think for a second about why you don’t want to do things. When you have that thing you need to do or feel you should do… …but you just…can’t…do…it. What is at the heart of your saying no to it? Say someone calls you and invites you to speak on a panel in front of […]

Sometimes, I wish I were a tortoise. Or a horse. Or a lizard. To be human is to be cursed. No other creature can make a mistake,and turn it into a hundred. How silly. To put more into concealing my strangeness,than displaying my coloured wings. To work me up into a hot mess of nerves,Because […]

Writing this article was hard. I’m doing a self-imposed thirty articles in thirty days challenge. Being in the ‘zone’ for writing isn’t always easy. Often, I will feel stuck, bored, restless, and irritable knowing I need to do something that I don’t feel like doing. Sound familiar? Of course it does, you’re human. We get […]

A complicated life creates stress. I try to take on too much. I worry about unnecessary things. I spread myself too thin wanting to do more and more and more. I lack the focus, time and energy for those things that matter the most to me. Simplicity has always been the solution. The best way […]
