I’m not a feminist

Inspired by those overbearing man-eaters who bitch about inequality and hide behind women’s lib for their every whim, I tweeted, “The world would be a better place without those hard-core feminist types“.

Business meetings bring out the worst in people

Life through the windscreen and not the rear-view mirror

If you are in pursuit of happiness, you are probably wasting your time. You don’t chase happiness, because you actually do not have to. Happiness is already inside you, and you are simply not in touch with it! Recently someone asked me if I was happy. My response: “Of course I am — I am…
