If you were sent to a deserted island, which book, CD and film would you take with you?
I would take the movie, "Cast away" starring Tom Hanks because then I can watch it and relate to a castaway :P
How do you find the balance between working to live and living to work?
I find a way to make my work fun so I can enjoy it while getting the work done :)
In moments of tension, what techniques work in calming the mind?
Find something that will distract you from what's on your mind: eg. reading, listening to music, taking a nap
or blow off the steam- boxing, running, dancing, composing a song, etc.
A simple pleasure that for you is quite big or important.
Dancing or playing the piano is a way I redirect my emotions and feelings about life. Anytime I feel stressed or worried I turn towards music and dance to blow off some steam. It's an intimate thing...giving you a sense of privacy that we all need in our lives.
What is the greatest loss you have had in your life?
The greatest loss I've ever had in my life is the regret that I spent so much time on people that don't care for me as much as I did for them. Putting in the effort to show that you care about the person when they just take you for granted. Basically, a waste of valuable time that could be spent towards people who truly love and care about you.
How do you respond to telemarketing calls?
I don't respond...I say nothing until they decide to hang up :D

You have nine wins in a row in a game of roulette: do you continue because you are on a good run, or abandon the game because statistically, it is your turn to lose?
