  • Extreme Ownership

    For me, before knowing extreme ownership, I found myself wanting to blame others when issues arise. To point at other’s faults. To not take responsibility. What I learned, though, is that extreme ownership challenges us to not blame others, have humility, and take greater ownership to change.

  • Busy is a Decision

    I was listening to an audiobook called Tribe of Mentors, a book by Tim Ferris in which many inspirational people answered 11 questions to give insight to readers on lifelong living. One of the mentors who spoke, Debbie Millman, quoted something, that hits really hard. 'Busy is a decision.'

  • Infinite Mindset

    Life is not a finite game, where a loss in a year means a loss for the rest of our life (though sometimes, it may feel that way). Rather, it is an infinite game where we are not be tied down by a single outcome in our lives and can continue to learn & grow.

  • Less is More

    I’ve always believed that more is better. The more resources, experience, or time you have, the better you’re able to do things. That extra dollar, extra skill, and extra hour can go a long way. But sometimes, having more can be a hindrance.

  • Step Out To Stand Out

    At work, I started to turn my camera on at big company calls 📷 (as in 100+ or all-company gatherings). The reason I started to do it was because I listened to a podcast that mentioned a perspective to take in order to achieve success. "To achieve what nobody has, you must do what nobody else does."

  • Help in Humility

    I found myself forced to do one of the things I disliked most: asking for help. When it comes to sending a message to ask for help, I struggle with formulating the right words to ask a question. Overanalysis, overthinking, and obsession over the intention of what I send stops me from moving past my discomfort of sending the question.

  • Shedding the Image

    When I lead, many times I feel like I need to uphold an image. Though it is fun playing around with the idea of becoming like these leaders, the problem with chasing after so many different ideals was that I easily lose myself and forget who I am.

  • Real Over Right

    Leadership is hard. As someone who is obsessed with leadership topics, I find myself burdened by the never-ending list of expectations that I feel are implicitly expected of leaders. But people would rather follow a leader that’s real, than a leader that’s right.

  • Tennis Talk

    I learned a lot about tennis rating systems from my friend, as well as the competitiveness of tennis.

  • A Rant to Stir Up a Dead Heart For God

    How can we chase after pointless and empty dreams that lead to despair? Why do we mindlessly pursue after the many broken pieces in life that are insignificant — like grains of sand that struggle to fill the gaping hole of desire in our hearts — when there is a spring that brings about the living water of life which desires to completely engulf the darkness and fill us with peace, joy, hope, and love?

  • What About Him?

    When I went up to Michigan in the middle of September, I was so excited! But something was wrong. Michigan holds a special place in my heart — a place where I think about friends, food, and memories. But nowhere during the time had I thought about Him. Jesus. God. The Father. The Creator.

  • Loneliness in Summer

    One of the things I dislike the most is unstructured free time over break. As much as it’s relaxing and I get to sleep in for more than 8 hours a day (which I rarely get to do at school, if at all), it can be mind-numbing for me to not have something to look forward to do for the day. In fact, many times I feel very lonely during this free time.
