Humility is so underrated. To be able to recognise when & where we should give opinion goes a long way to building rapport, showing your intent and adding value to the greater cause rather than our own self interests. Humility comes from experience but begins with self awareness. Ivan.
I am currently testing out Live Transcribe to write a blog post. As you know, as a blogger it can be quite challenging sometimes to write content when you're always on the go. You've got work, family commitments, relationships, friends, and other hobbies and activities and it can be quite a challenge to set aside … Continue reading A week in review; week ending 27th Oct. 2019
Hmm, where exactly do I start? It's already 2/3 of the way into the month and without hesitation I can literally say that it's blitzed by at what feels like lightning speed. I spent the better part of last week in the hospital with our youngest daughter whom was quite ill after she came down … Continue reading A week in review; week ending 20th Oct. 2019
You and I both... we've started a new notebook or journal. Stumped. What's to go on the first page? It has to be perfect. No. In todays post I decided to share my own first page, imperfectly. And that felt about as good as perfect anyway. I figured that if I include the feeling of … Continue reading Sharing your creativity with vulnerability

The realisation has arrived, this is the time of year where … Continue reading Week ending 6th October – A week in review
Take me back two years and I would have felt 'unfinished' had I have made my own rig for filming video. Today, well, that's a different story. I find joy in making something I know contributes to my creativity, because the process itself is creative. The project (most technical paragraph, I promise) I recently picked … Continue reading A selfie stick, of sorts.
I have about five or six favourite books so far, the kind of favourite that if I knew I was going to find myself in a post apocalyptic world, I'd want those books in my zombie pack. One such book that recently made it on that list is Show Your Work by Austin Kleon. I … Continue reading Book Review: Show Your Work by Austin Kleon
I warmed right up in September. That means I enjoyed a lot of things too. Here's the deal-- We all know I hate summer, blah blah. But for some strange reason, reasons I'm also not willing to accept, as the sun gets closer and spring approaches, I come alive. It's totally counter intuitive to my … Continue reading September Favourites – Ivan Siladji
I can't believe it's that time of year again already. #Blogtober is now upon us depending on where you are in the world. And if you're reading this after the challenge has started, never fear, it's never too late to join in the action.
