A Call For New Ideas

The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones. John Maynard Keynes.

Technology, globalization and the pandemic have changed everything. Never have we been so interdependent and interconnected. It’s time for fresh, new ideas.

But new ideas don’t just come out of the blue.

They come to those who are open.

Open to change, naturally curious and always eager to keep growing.

Willing to dump out the old ideas that aren’t working anymore and having the courage to make room for new practices and approaches. Willing to do the work. Whatever it takes for as long as it takes.

So here’s the big question: How open are you?

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected. 

I look forward to seeing you back here again soon. And, as always, thank you for reading me.

Connect With Nature

Those who dwell, as scientists or laymen, among the beauties  and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life. Rachel Carson.

Connecting with nature is important to your health and well being. It helps to release stress, sooth your spirits and sharpen your senses.

It can be a variety of scenarios. Whether you are sitting at the end of a dock up at the lake, on a sandy beach oceanside, in a quiet backyard garden, or on a bench under a tree in a park, plugging into nature affords you an opportunity to set aside your busyness, if even for a short while, to reconnect with yourself and just catch your breath.

After suffering in lock down mode for a year and and a half, it’s especially important this summer to get as much time in nature as we can, to comfort our bodies and souls and begin to restore some sense of balance to our everyday lives.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected. 

I look forward to seeing you back here again soon. And as always, thank you for reading me.

Lean Into The Future

The future depends on what you do today. Mahatma Gandhi

It has been a rough year and a half for everybody, challenging in so many ways.

The pandemic isn’t over yet, but as we get beyond the crest and hopefully begin to put the experience behind us, the conundrum facing many is whether to just give full throttle to their current activities or, perhaps, referencing their lockdown pledges, pause for a deep rethink about the arc of their lives. Big questions, I know.

It hasn’t been easy but as we all begin to adjust to the new realities, there isn’t a better time than now to Refresh, Repurpose & Renew.

Starting with courage and unfailing belief in yourself.

Be honest. Do the work. Wherever you go on from here, know that you have all you need to maximize your potential, power up your life and be the best version of yourself that you can be. That will do it.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected. 

I look forward to seeing you back here soon.  And as always, thank you for reading me.

What You Do Matters

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. Eleanor Roosevelt.

As society undergoes a transformation brought about by the pandemic, we are each being challenged to move beyond outdated, limiting beliefs and behaviours made irrelevant and to evolve into and fashion new, fresher versions of ourselves.

Every day counts. And everyday is a precious gift.

What you do matters.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected.

I look forward to seeing you back here again soon. Thanks for reading me.

Thinking about making some changes? Want to be a new, fresher version of yourself? Need help getting there? Text/call me 416.450.8867 or email drew@drewsimmie.com. Follow me on Twitter.

Dare To Dream

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. Ralph Waldo Emerson.

dare-to-dream-drew-simmie

Finding the path to authenticity, the unique self that makes you you is the easiest and, at the same time, the hardest thing you can ever do. It takes courage, tenacity and daring to dream; but you can’t get the things you don’t first dream of.

The past year has been a strange, trying time for everyone. COVID-19 has affected everybody in so many unimaginable ways.

Most people are just waiting for it to be over and to return to normality, whatever the new normal entails.

Some, however, even those at the top of their game, sensing new opportunities, have been given pause to think about what is going on, to reflect upon how they are living and what they are doing with their lives.

“Have I got it all right,” they wonder, “and just need to top up my spirit and move further ahead with my current situation or could it be time to alter the arc of my life and take a different path?” Big questions, I know. I’ve been there.

To be clear, the pandemic isn’t over yet. The past year hasn’t been easy for anyone, but as we all begin to put the experience behind us, there isn’t a better time than now to REFRESH, REPURPOSE & RENEW.

Good news! That’s the theme of my new virtual workshop. It’s not just another meeting. It’s much more than that.

Think of it rather as a CONVERSATION CIRCLE, a small, intimate gathering of like minds, people like you, looking for ways to maximize their potential, power up their lives and become the best version of themselves they can be.

If you are still with me, feel that now is to be your time, and would like to learn more, this is a workshop you won’t want to miss. You’ll find out how to create a plan that moves you ever closer to a life rich with purpose, get clarity on your vision of what a successful future looks like, identify the steps to get there, and how to pursue your vision with passion.

Curious? I invite you to email drew@drewsimmie.com for all the details and to claim your spot in the up-coming session.

Life is a journey. It’s never too early, nor too late, for those who dare to dream.
