Nothing gives my life more meaning than to help others find meaning in theirs.
For all of my life, I’ve had an obsession with becoming the best version of myself, just like many of the people I work with. Those of us who truly understand what it takes know that there is no finish line in this game. We will be playing until our very last breath.
All too often we high achievers can fall into a subtle – but suffocating – trap as the external accolades begin to pile up – money, promotions, possessions, recognition and bigger responsibilities.
We find ourselves beholden to the inescapable voice in our mind to do more.
To assume a never-ending set of greater responsibilities and obligations.
To push ourselves into overdrive.
And as a result, we never fully explore what brings us meaning and purpose in our lives.
I know this because I speak from experience. Life truly is an inside job. When I figured this out, I found meaning in my life. My energy went up, my workload went down, and the results in my career and personal life skyrocketed.
I left a lucrative 15-year career in financial services to live out this meaning to its fullest extent. And I’m here to help you do the same.
I LOVE taking on big challenges. Putting myself in uncomfortable situations. And devouring anything that will help me raise my game.
A few of my favorite examples from the past year:
100 Pushup Challenge
I’ve always loved pushing my physical limits and breaking through previously “impossible” thresholds. Doing 100 consecutive pushups was one of those “impossible” milestones for me, as I’d never done more than 52 in a row (back when I was 18 years old). So I chose to set this big, hairy audacious goal for myself, and I ended up accomplishing it in under 90 days. (I also decided to tackle 30 consecutive pull-ups, also accomplished in under 90 days, which you can watch here: 30 Consecutive Pullups)
10 Days in Silence
10 Things I Learned from 10 Days in Silent Meditation
Since I started my meditation in 2013, my biggest, boldest and most transformational ideas have come during these moments of stillness and reflection. The idea of sitting in silence for 10 days, meditating 11 hours each day, stripped of all access to stimulation, frightened me. So of course, I ran headfirst into this experience during my 90 day Radical Sabbatical (which you can hear more about in this video: After 15 Years, it’s Time to Say Goodbye). Here’s what I learned.
