How to Set Effective Goals

We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better. 

- JK Rowling 

 

Are you having a COVID-life crisis? Here’s how to use this transition time to reflect and set effective goals 

The idea of a mid-life crisis isn’t news to anyone, even the idea of a quarter-life crisis is gaining acceptance in popular psychology. These both describe periods in our...

Everyone needs a mentor in life

Sometimes people come into your life for a moment, a day, or a lifetime. It matters not the time they spent with you, but how they impacted your life in that time. - Unknown

 

If I asked you to picture a mentor, can you tell me what they look like? A wise greying gentleman like Mr Miyagi or Gandalf the Grey, or maybe a little more rugged like Robyn Williams in Good Will Hunting or real-life businessman Mark Bouris? Keen Disney fans might be screaming out examples like Yoda, Jiminy...

“Oh, we are in big trouble here.” 

These were the first few words that went through my mind when restrictions started to be put in place. From businesses being forced to work from home, all the way through to schools closing their doors. Our revenue for the foreseeable future had all but been lost. 

However, my words were not directed towards my business, my first initial thoughts were for all of humanity - we’re all in big trouble here. The proposed restrictions brought with them exponential levels of...

For the past ten years, I have made it my life’s mission to bring human connection to the forefront of society. To point out how digitally connected we have become and how emotionally disconnected we have become from each other on the back of this.

You see, we can now call someone on the other side of the world from the devices in our pockets. We can wire money around the world in a click of a button or a tap on a screen smaller than a $50 note. Yet, we can’t have face to face...

What is the Human Connection Project?

“Depression is not a malfunction, it is a signal, it’s telling you something” – Johann Hari.

Social media creates a bubble; a world much smaller than the beautiful one we live in.

That is an overwhelming risk to have bundled up in a single shiny pocket-sized device.

Who is Matt Boyce?

“There are three types of people in this world. Type three, are those too lazy and ambitionless to work hard at anything. Type two, find their peace just making a wage working for someone and then going home. Then there are the type one people. They take risks, they engage with the world around them, they lead, and they create legacies. I know what I want to be, and I know what I want my best friend to be…”

It’s one of the many nuggets of wisdom and friendship Matt...
