This deck's on life.

A collection of notions that inspire me.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

Heraclitus, the true father of dialectics.

Everything flows. Growth/movement is the result of a battle between opposing forces.

Survival through reinvention.

To live you have to die. To die you have to live.

A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking. Assumptions are the mother of all f*ck-ups. Let's face it: we don't know sh*t.

Personal Branding & Me, Inc.

Define yourself in one word or statement.

You are always on stage.

Success is granted not taken: personal branding is a 24/7 job.

This above all: to thine own self be true,

And it must follow, as the night the day,

Thou canst not then be false to any man.

Farewell, my blessing season this in thee!

And the shirt they bury you in has no pockets.
