Cluttered head? Give it a spring cleaning with the help of mother nature.

Why playfulness is the most fun productivity hack for your busy life.

But play is more than learning. It’s also relaxing, gives us joy and boosts our capacity for creative problem solving.
Julie's path to Clarity.
"A donkey doesn't hit itself on the same stone twice." - Dutch proverb.
Well, clearly I am no donkey.
I managed to hit the same stone twice. It hurt, both times. But the second time I knew what to do about it. I turned away from the stone. That stone was my corporate career.
How Carlien found Clarity.
Clarity on your strengths.
You probably have much more weaknesses than strengths.
