The question posed was: What’s it like to […]

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

When people fail to move forward in the direction of their dreams, a common excuse is “I don’t know how.” They claim that a lack of know-how is the key factor holding them back in life. For example, people write to me all the time saying that they wish they could start a successful blog, […]

Initiating Relationships with Openness, Honesty, and Directness

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009

I’ve never resonated with the usual dating and courtship process. Traditional dating is actually one of our society’s most ineffective inventions.

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

In this post I’m going to share some things I’ve never shared publicly before, some of which you might find a bit surprising. At the start of each new year, I like to pick a primary focus for the upcoming year. I prefer doing this instead of making a New Year’s resolution because it’s more […]
