One Mountain To Climb

Let’s call it Mount Mastery. That’s where you need to go to reach the summit of all experience and expertise in your field of choice. That’s where you need to make your mark. If you’re not well on your way to climb that mountain, you’re definitely lost. I wish someone had told me that 30 […]

The Switch

You’re doing it all wrong. You’re a person, not a robot, or a trained puppy. You’re not supposed to spend hours upon hours scrolling on a glass surface chasing social approval dopamine hits and unlimited entertainment. I love to break it to you, but the only way you can create a life of freedom and […]

Get Off The Train

The lucky ones figure out their path in life early on. How that came about is sort of irrelevant if you’re on the right track where everything seems to be happening ‘for you’ instead of ‘to you,’ despite all the challenges you have to go through. On each train, there’s at least one lost soul […]

Core Strengths

Alright. I think it’s about time we try to settle the great debate between those who say “Follow Your Passion” and the others who say “Be Disciplined and Do Things You’re Great At.” I don’t know about you, but from where I’m standing there’s no discernable difference. I honestly don’t understand what the fuss is […]
