Did some thinking this week on the Japanese concept of “ikigai.” It is the synthesis of what you’re good at, what you love, what you can be paid for, and what the world needs.

I'm not gonna lie, it took me quite a bit of time to work through and flesh out the ideas that I chat about in today's episode. I want to make it abundantly clear that I'm not here to absolve people of responsibility or encourage willful ignorance.

Here we go, first Thursday Shorty of 2021. I sent out an email to my list this morning that I won’t be answering every single response I get back.

You all know our nervous systems …

‘Tis the season. An episode inspired by Mr. Christmas (music) himself, Michael Bublé. I've heard this song a million times, but was opening some unexpected gifts from my Instafam while it was playing, and I got ALL the feels and knew it had to become a podcast episode. Give. Doesn't have to be money. And definitely shouldn't be just because you wan…

Join me for an episode inspired by getting rid of the futon in my office. To quote T.

Addition by subtraction. Let's chat. The post MOTM #265: Clearing out S…

You already know I'm gonna tell you to do the thing. Action creates clarity. Action creates confidence. Action creates MOAR action.

Yes, I like to prepared, but there's a …
