Welcome to Abstracted Collective
Inspiration and information without personal application will never amount to transformation. – Lysa Terkeurst (Author of Uninvited).
What was your dream when you were 8?
Was it to be an astronaut? A teacher? A social worker? A politician? Was it to have kids and a wonderful family? Was it to travel the world?
They say that your dreams are planted when you were a young child.
I can’t say I disagree.
All of us had dreams. But many of us fall off the path a little and get distracted along the way.
I’m here to tell you it isn’t too late to get back on track. All you need is a little push, some inspiration and abit of guidance 😀
And that’s why I started this blog. I want to share the tools on how you can make small changes in your life, to see the positive growth you want.
I want to show people how to get more out of their lives, by giving them practical takeaways in key areas, drawing on science, psychology, research, anecdotes and life examples which I hope are of help to you.
My aim is to help you transform your life, one post at a time.
You can choose to design and build the life that you want right now. You just need to take the first step.
I love hearing from readers! Feel free to leave questions, comment on articles or contact me.

About the Author
I think it’s no secret that I love devouring information. But sometimes that doesn’t play out too well. See, I have a really bad habit of starting multiple books/magazines/articles simultaneously and never finishing them.
I get into things pretty deep.
Oh and one other downside? My head is always spinning with information. So I wanted all that out of my head and neatly organised somewhere. And that led to me starting a Tumblr blog a few years ago which acted as my own personalised Instapaper/Pocket/online library.
Around that time, I was approaching my mid-20s and found myself constantly thinking about my identity and life’s purpose. Life seemed to consist of work, family and the random social event. But I felt unfulfilled. There was a niggling sense of “there should be more to life than this”?!
I wanted to challenge myself to live life to the fullest and in a way which meant lots of positive change and growth. And getting out of my comfort zone. I wanted to work towards discovering how to fulfill my dreams. What did that take?
That was how the personal experiments came about. I took topics – productivity, habits, goals; anything that appealed to me on personal growth and dove deep into each category. I documented the successes and failures.
And that was how this blog was born.
Also, as a Psychology researcher, NLP practitioner and coach, I help people help themselves get to their dreams.
Besides writing here, I can usually be found daydreaming, people-watching and thinking of my next cup of tea. Yum. Yes I’m a dreamer, an idealist and abit of a quiet rebel 🙂 I love Victorian architecture, European cities, mountains, city views, window-seats, the smell of new books, cafes, unconventionality and listening to jazz music on a rainy day.
