I went to Eastern Europe for a health retreat – a program that taught me how to look after my health and wellbeing. I’ve decided to share some notes with you now. How to reverse the damage caused by the standard western diet: It is said that chronic inflammation is a major cause of most physical conditions these days, so the focus of this retreat is about how to cool inflammation and improve overall health & wellbeing. Truthfully, chronic inflammation is not just about redness and pain. In fact, chronic inflammation is also about whole-body communication. Basically, that means I must [...]

In terms of people being productive with their spare time, I see two main issues today: 1) Many people don’t know how to spend their spare time effectively; 2) the amount of spare time is becoming less and less. In order to fix that, I’d like to share my thoughts with you today in this blog post which was written when I was traveling in Eastern Europe. Our spare time is extremely important, so we should protect our spare time carefully. We already have enough noise in our daily life, so why would we fill our lives with letting in more [...]
Portfolio analyses evaluate an organization’s portfolio of business units by assessing the profitability and attractiveness of the industries the organization competes in as well as the competitive edge of an organization’s business units. As a result, portfolio analyses can offer key insights into the organization’s offerings. Lifecycles capture the evolution of industries, products, services and organizations. When portfolio analyses and lifecycles are combined, the findings can be very powerful because this approach looks at the positioning, the competitive advantages and the stages of products and services, thereby informing strategy development as well as effective management accordingly. Firstly, differentiation may help determine [...]
I’ve summarized a list of doable jobs for you so that you will know how to be down-to-earth after arriving in Ukraine. If you decide to live in Ukraine for a while, please clarify your goals in detail. Your goals shouldn’t be something like “I’ll make a lot of money this year” because that’s not concrete enough. Instead, your goals should be “I’ll make $100,000 by 31st December, 2021” because this is a very specific goal. Only specific goals can be measured! Go through daily rituals that help you achieve your goals. There is a book called Daily Rituals. Although that [...]
As a western person living in Ukraine, I teach English here. Many people have asked me to share my experiences with them, so I’m happy to talk about some very interesting things in my life. While living in Ukraine, I realized that many people are curious about the broad Australian accent. The broad Australian accent is associated with Australian masculinity. Notable speakers include Paul Hogan and Bill Hunter. Though the accent is only spoken by a small number of Australians, it has a lot of cultural credibility. This is shown by the fact that it is commonly used by newsreaders. Very [...]
We always read books and blog articles about how to start relationships, but when do we read something about how to be single? Well, now I’m going to write a blog post about how to be single because I’ve been traveling solo after a major breakup! The reality of a solo life: For a lot of people, being single is painful – loneliness, disappointment, peer pressure, etc. However, a solo life doesn’t have to be hard. In fact, I find my solo life really cool – I don’t have to put up with anyone that I can’t stand; I have many [...]
I used to like the intensity of relationships, but now I’m alone (not lonely). As I get older, I started to enjoy the stability, balance and grounding in my life. That’s why I’ve been traveling alone. Don’t let crazy relationships dominate your mind. Your primary thoughts become your reality. When I was much younger, I was surrounded by people who were crazy about relationships. At that time, being single was not acceptable in my social circle. Consequently, I thought I must be in a relationship – I just wanted to fit in! 🔥 After being in a few crazy relationships, I realized [...]
Sustainability is a frequent topic of discussion in this day and age. This isn’t just about protecting the ecosystem and the environment. It’s also about other aspects, including industries such as hospitality and tourism. A case study: Although there is definitely a threat of new entrants and the competitive rivalry is pretty strong, The Hibiscus Tree does not face the threat of substitutes and the bargaining power of its customers & suppliers are relatively low. In spite of the political instability, the current exchange rate and the low population growth rate in South Australia, modern technological shifts have supported the business [...]
An in-depth SWOT analysis will provide more insights into the future business development of The Hibiscus Tree, a thriving business in the tourism and hospitality industry in spite of the pandemic. Strengths and weaknesses: First and foremost, the organization’s internal strengths include the convenient access to authentic key ingredients such as Sichuan chilies and effective marketing approaches on the Internet. Because most restaurants in this category do not have access to authentic key ingredients such as chilies from Sichuan Province, China, they are unable to offer truly authentic Sichuan cuisine in Adelaide. Loyal and seasoned customers know exactly what they want, [...]
After a journey to East Asia, I have a much better understanding of the iconic Japanese brand Muji. Recommendations for future strategy: As there are many areas that need to be improved, Muji would be well-advised to consider the following strategies carefully. The first strategy to consider is to shift production from Japan and China to other Asian countries such as India, the Philippines, Vietnam and Indonesia where salaries are significantly lower (Lung 2020). This strategy is recommended because Muji has to learn from their own mistakes. Clearly, this is the learning / ‘emergent’ approach which comes from trial and error. [...]
