About me

My reason for living is to help others reach their potential in order to make the world a better place. Starting with my why drives everything else I do, the what and the how.

 

I live the year of no fear also (of course) and for 2018 I am addressing:

  • Fear of taking action if no one will follow me (aka living the slight edge to get there and stop thinking things happen overnight)
  • Fear of rejection in dating
  • Fear of public speaking
  • Fear of being vulnerable / need to be right
  • Fear of unknown future (where am I going? I’m not letting this unknown answer allow me to get comfortable where I am now and not go anywhere)
  • Fear (block against) doing things I thought I would never do: waking up early, waking up when the alarm goes off, working out in the morning, having a long commute, casual dating (had resolved to being single), being seen in public being spiritual (or vulnerable)
  • Fear of driving in harsh conditions like darkness, rain, fog, snow, ice (2017 carry over, still working on to keep it top of mind)
  • Fear of traveling alone and/or Fear of being outdoors camping in the woods alone (2017 carry over, still working on to keep it top of mind)
  • Fear of small talk and/or striking up a conversation with strangers¬†(2017 carry over, still working on to keep it top of mind)

 

“The downside is almost always reversible or transient.”

 

Three other areas I am improving in my life:

  1. Practicing Stoicism
  2. Increasing minimalist lifestyle practices
  3. “Happiness Habits”
  4. Slight Edge
  5. Living traits of a monk (The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari)
