One Year Without Social Media

Friday, July 31st, 2015

In July 2014 I decided to quit social media, including deleting my Twitter and Facebook accounts. Now that more than a year has passed, I’ll share an update about the past year of being free of social media. At the time it was mildly difficult to make the decision to quit, but that was only […]

Take an Inspiration Day

Monday, April 27th, 2015

Have you ever felt the urge to explore a totally different field, skill, or interest for a while? What is it you’d like to try, if you only had the time? Music? Programming? Web design? Entrepreneurship? Camping? A new exercise? A better way of eating? A new social group? But then of course, you talk yourself out of […]

What to Do When You’re Falling Behind

Friday, April 24th, 2015

When I was a kid, it took me longer than I would have liked to learn how to ride a bike. I kept using a bike with training wheels and I didn’t practice much, so of course I didn’t learn how to balance. One day I observed that my sister (younger by 2.5 years) was […]

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

Fatal Dating Mistakes

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

Did you ever make a foolish mistake and screw up an otherwise good connection with someone you were attracted to? Maybe you made the mistake during your approach.

Connecting

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

When Rachelle and I were in southern Spain a couple weeks ago, we stayed with some new friends on a three-acre fruit farm. Since the weather was so nice, we spent a lot of time sitting outside, enjoying views of rolling green hills and the city of Malaga down below, while we snacked on fresh avocados and […]

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

After the 2015 Lifestyle Design Convention in Zurich, Switzerland, last month, a few of the speakers (including me) got together to record an open conversation about our growth challenges and various other ideas. We ended up with a two-hour video of our chat session, which Kai Christen posted on YouTube a few weeks ago. From left to right […]
