How often do you venture into the unknown? If you feel lost, just realise you’re not alone. A lot of the world relies on structure to operate properly and this makes everything and everyone look orderly. This is not as true as many of us would like to think. Obviously, the world works rather well. The people within in also operate to a very good level. My observation is that it is out of habit and necessity. It’s autonomous, in a sense.
The sacrifice for systems and structure is safety and security in exchange for curiosity and creative endeavour. Humans are orderly by nature. We like straight lines and edges. We like closure and answers. We enjoy certainty.
My personal idea on this is that people don’t want to be seen as strange, so they deny their mind the ability wander into curiosity. I have certainly experienced this before myself, which is how I first articulated this. It’s clear to see that we are also bound by our own logic.
So, don’t worry about feeling lost or uncertain. Let your mind wander and you might find it’s not so bad. It has worked for me so far. What sacrifice do you make for being able to wander? Security & safety - Not entirely but to an extent. Balance is good. (I have a Growth / Comfort Zone Graphic on my website available for download).

According to a new report by a media watchdog, Eritrea is the world's most censored country. The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) stated that the worst three countries for press censorship - Eritrea, North Korea and Turkmenistan - use the media "as a mouthpiece of the state, and independent journalism is conducted from exile". •
With only one government-controlled television channel and one newspaper for a nation of six million people, Eritrea has been deemed the world's most censored country. Eritreans have little to no opportunity to speak freely, to criticize the government regime, and to earn an education and work as they please. Everyone is forced into lifelong military service, akin to slavery. Only one percent of the Eritrean population has access to the internet, and only six percent have cell phones. With no free media in the country, the abuses taking place within its borders have been underreported. Refugees have called Eritrea a country of no opportunity and no justice.
Despite the lack of freedom of press, underground activists, inside and outside the country, have figured out a few creative ways to spread the message of freedom and organize those left home in Eritrea. Through internet opposition, Facebook postings, satellite pirate radio, cold calling Eritreans at home, writing messages on banknotes, messages on walls, and putting up posters in the middle of the night. "If you cannot speak freely and you cannot communicate," said Eritrean refugee Fessehaye, "your society cannot improve."

So I spent months investigating the state of free speech on Canadian university campuses for the National Post. Here's what students, professors and other experts had to say about this issue | Watch the full documentary here: nationalpost.com/freespeech

So anyone who knows me knows I like to talk. I like talking with passion and about things close to my heart. This week has made me see the good and bad it can cause. On one hand it helps people who think the same feel represented. And on the other hand it can offend people and make them feel marginalised or not listened too. And I certainly don’t want that. I’ve done my best to address those who messaged me and I’m still working my way through those messages now. Some have voiced their opinion courteously, others have chosen to call names and run, while others have chosen to try attack my livelihood in some pretty malevolent ways. It’s makes me wonder if there is any good that comes from pursuing this. So I’m left with a quandary. Either shut up and let the dust settle. Or release my podcast outlining my reservations to the now infamous podcast that sparked it all. 🤔suggestions welcome
