“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending.

BEHOLD THE GLORIOUS CHEESE!

A couple of Mondays back, I posted up that awesome David Hasslehoff music video from the internet movie, Kung Fury. That proved to be a bit of a hit. And you can see why if you watch the whole film: I’m not exactly sure how you could get more 80s than that. The...

Being stubborn gets you to the top

Simon Sinek takes some time to explain how leadership works properly: He’s right. The single most important quality in your life that will turbocharge it and allow you to achieve great things is not actually talent. It is consistency. You have to...
