Tools for excellence is creating a repository of resources for productivity and self-improvement

Self help and self improvement (despite the sneers) continues to be a very large part of the Internet's utility. This Patreon site is a repository of a large number of pieces -- videos, infographics, utilities and articles -- that could be useful to anyone looking for guidance. I believe that they are of lasting merit and will not devalue over time.

The contents of this site are public and open to all, for access without any restriction.

  • However, if you wish to show your appreciation for the site, you may please do so using the "Become a Patron" button. Your contribution will be received with sincere thanks.
  • As a second tier of support, I would like to offer my services as a coach, consultant and mentor. 
Who am I? My professional life of four decades was spent as a surgeon, educator and medical administrator. I am now retired from active medical practice and when I reflect on my life, asking myself what did I do that could be now redirected to a larger audience, three things pop up.
  • I like to think critically.
  • I like to teach young minds how to think critically.
  • I like to communicate - speaking, writing, engaging in forums - critically assessed information to interested audiences.
To complement my aims, I send out a newsletter on a periodic basis -- every time there are 5 items of value. The current subscribership has an "open" rate that is in excess of 40%. I am told that this figure is almost three times the average for such media. All past activities, archives and a sign up form for the newsletter are available at my website: Thinking | Teaching |Talking. Over the last 3 years, I have accumulated almost 500 individual items.

Tools4excellence is a personal endeavour that is the result of hundreds of hours of work. It is a solo effort -- the good, the bad and the ugly -- funded entirely out of my own physical, monetary and emotional resources. I came across Patreon recently and I am totally taken by its philosophy.
