Monthly Archives: January 2017





Happy 2017! It’s been awhile since I last shared some thoughts in this particular space. I have been continuously updating my Learning Resources section with new books and websites.

Of the several books that I have recently read, I have been thinking a lot about Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance by Angela Duckworth. More specifically, I have been thinking how to continue to develop my own Grittiness and how to help others develop theirs. After some reflections, I believe my Live D!perTM and ExC7eL™ Frameworks are complimentary to the development of Grit.

I have also recently come across the work that Thrive Global is promoting. I agree wholeheartedly with Thrive Global’s mission to end the epidemic of stress and burnout.  I am very inspired by the global movement that Thrive Global has started. Reading their resources make me even more inspired to engage in the work that I am doing as a Board Member for TELL Japan. Moreover, after taking Thrive Global’s very short survey, I realized that I am currently “Part-Time Thriving” (I am one point shy of “Thriving, but Room for More Thriving.”) I’ve set a goal of closing this one point gap and more within the next two months.

As I proceed through 2017, I will continue to take intentional and concrete actions to Live D!perTM and ExC7eL™. I invite you to do the same.
