The Unboxed Life: Giving by Jon Mertz
One side of our life needs to be boxed in, and another needs to be unboxed. Our unboxed life needs to be spirit-led, soul-inspired.

The Innovating Power of Eight Words by Paul Hobcraft
Lately eight words have come up more often than not as the new imperative for business, not just for the start up but the more established business to measure themselves against.

After writing about extreme creativity for a couple of days, here’s a real-life example: Gulp, the world’s largest stop-motion animation film.
