Ambition Magnets

Over the last two years, we’ve seen a massive shift towards remote work. Employees were forced to work from home. Just as executives, lawyers, and civil servants.

I’m Back: 7-Day Fast

On the weekend, I finished a 7-day water fast. It was a necessary reset. Not only for my body. But also for me as an individual. It felt like a “goodbye” to my old me, and a “welcome” to my new best version of myself. Over the last three months, I was on the road […]
