"Skuif jou lyf"

Remember that scene from Dead Poet’s Society, where they all get on tables in the classroom?


My friend Tom always says that one of the best things you can do in your life, to transform your life, is to skuif jou lyf, to physically go to a new location.

Look at things from a different angle, physically not just through a screen. Go to a different neighbourhood, go to a poor neighbourhood, go to a rich neighbourhood, broaden your view, see how other people live.

Get skin in the game, “Go on, lean in. Listen, you hear it? - - Carpe - - hear it? - - Carpe, carpe diem, seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary.” John Keating in Dead Poet’s Society.
