Snakebite serum

When you bitten by a venomous snake, you need to administer the serum to counter the poison.

Otherwise you could be in big trouble. Paralysis, vomiting, weakness or possibly death.

Toxic environments, situations and people offer the same fate for you unless you apply the serum.

The serum in this case could be removing yourself, standing up for yourself, remaining true to what you believe in, getting help from friends and people who care about you.

What you don’t want to do is just do nothing.

That’s when the paralysis can set in. 

Make sure it doesn’t.

Don’t let a toxic environment or person make you feel bad or wrong.

Apply the serum.


There is a big difference between the following two statements:

I don’t have the time for that

I cannot make the time for that

The second statement implies that you have thought this through and your decision is that there are more important things that you want to do.

Whatever you have to do, need to do or want to do, you do have the time. You just need to decide how you spend your time. You do have a choice.

The start of something new

2019 is all about getting stuff sorted. Decluttering. Simplifying. Making life easier, more productive and less BS.

This goes for various websites I write on and use.

So goodbye to old and goodbye to using Svbtle.

Hello to this new WordPress site where I will be writing on a daily basis. I hope.

Thanks for visiting.

The way of the Essentialist means living by design, not by default. Instead of making choices reactively, the Essentialist deliberately distinguishes the vital few from the trivial many, eliminates the nonessentials, and then removes obstacles so the essential things have clear, smooth passage. In other words, Essentialism is a disciplined, systematic approach for determining where our highest point of contribution lies, then making execution of those things almost effortless.
Only once you give yourself permission to stop trying to do it all, to stop saying yes to everyone, can you make your highest contribution towards the things that really matter.
