Spring is almost here and we’re over three months into 2016. What are your goals for the year? Are you still on track to achieve them? This is a good time to check-in, re-evaluate and adjust your action plan to get the best results. This year I’m striving to become a better leader. While perusing the ‘books with the word boss in them’ section at Indigo, I stumbled upon Tina Fey’s Bossypants.
The comedian, Saturday Night Live writer, producer and actress is an inspiration and a leadership role model. I’ll spare you the tedious book review, barring one noteworthy section: The rules of improvisation that will change your life and reduce belly fat.
Sadly improv won’t reduce belly fat, however it can boost your life. This book made me realize that some of my best ideas were the byproduct of fun, exploration and experimentation. If you want to generate more brilliant ideas, it’s worthwhile to look into improv training.
Last night I had the pleasure of attending The Artist Project early access preview and opening party with my friend and colleague Steven Hellmann.
As we arrived, we were enveloped in an immersive mix of music, food, drinks and thought-provoking art.
One of the most delicious food events in Toronto is just around the corner. If you haven’t been to Winterlicious, you’re missing out! It’s a celebration of gourmet eats curated by top chefs at some of the best restaurants in the city. This event makes gourmet food affordable, giving everyone access to restaurants they might not normally try at prices that don’t break the bank. So pause that Netflix and chill session, throw on a parka and get out of the house to nibble on a fixed price menu of gourmet fare. It’s a great way to discover new places and revisit old favourites.
