Feel free to steal them too if you’d like.

A person standing on a mountain at sunset.

There’s this feeling that I crave. It’s the feeling of learning something. Something insightful. Something life-altering. I love it. I search it out. In conversations with others, in the books I read, in the podcasts I listen to, I’m constantly searching for more. It’s exciting. It’s rewarding. I can almost…


You don’t need motivation to get things done; all you need is a reliable system.

A device tracking voltage.

Motivation is the sugar-rush of your desires. It is exciting, energizing, and oh-so-yummy… until you get a stomach ache and need to take a nap. It’s short-lived, short-term, temporary. It is not to be counted on for any real results or efforts.

It’s a lie that you need it in…


Lessons from prominent figures of history.

The hand of an elderly person.

They say history doesn’t repeat itself, but it rhymes. Well I hope you like poems. The past is full of them. Situations that show themselves over and over again. Instead of ignoring them, you can learn from them. You can apply them to the verses of your own life. In…

How to get out of a rut and start having more fun each week.

A person sitting by a river.

Last week I went whale watching.

The week before that, I took the train to LA, rode a scooter through downtown, and read a book atop the 70th floor of a high-rise hotel. The week before that I climbed to a (dried up) waterfall. Before that, I hiked to a…


Amazon isn’t the only game in town.

Two people reading in bed.

“You need to try this app. You’ll love it.”

My wife and sister were trying, and failing, to convince me to download another app. But I had enough apps and didn’t want any more. …


The story of a diagnosis two years late.

Someone wearing glasses.

A woman sits in the doctor’s office. Rocking back and forth, she has tears in her eyes. “What’s wrong with me?” she says. “I’m… I’m not sure,” the doctor says. That’s never what a patient wants to hear.

Frustrated, exhausted, she leaves. She gets in her car, pulls onto the…


The curiosity you indulge in, much like the food you eat, impacts your life.

An orange cat.

As someone inherently curious, the saying — curiosity killed the cat — has never sat well with me. Does curiosity have to kill the cat? Can’t it just, like, help it find a mouse or something? Why does it have to be so extreme? And further, why so dark?

I…


The key to working less is easier than you’d think.

A person wearing glasses and a white sweater.

Like many things, work resides on a pendulum. It swings from one extreme to the other with an average being somewhere in the middle.

On one side of the pendulum is the CEO who works 100+ hour weeks. In the middle is the knowledge worker clocking in at 40 hours…


No one knows what you’re saying.

A person in a suit talking.

“What do you do?” I ask. “That’s a great question,” he replies, “I do web development for a Fortune 1000 company in the SAS space.” I roll my eyes.

“What do you do?” I ask a second person. “Thank you for asking,” she says, “I help individuals connect their oneness…
