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.

Are you searching for new ideas and ways to move forward with renewed vigour and purpose? We could chat. Text/call me 416.450.8867 or email drew@drewsimmie.com. Follow me on Twitter.

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.
