  • In this BANI (brittle, anxious, non-linear, incomprehensible) world, we need to be FIRM (flexible, intuitive, resilient, and mindful) which will require us to ask purposeful questions, have purposeful conversations, and take purposeful action in our lives.
  • Happiness is a noble pursuit; feeding and nourishing yourself is key to building a well-rounded & purposeful life.
