The Road Less Travelled

The Road Less Travelled

I took a group of 11 blog readers on a secret adventure earlier this month, as an experiment in self-exploration. It was an adventure that had fear and uncertainty at its very heart. They were asked to turn up to an airport with their passports, and that was pretty much all they knew. They had […]

Will you live to be 200?

Will you live to be 200?

It is an interesting question, isn’t it? Well, the truth is – there’s a lot more chance of it happening than you might think. Life expectancy was 20 years a thousand years ago, and 37 two hundred years ago. Life expectancy where I now live is 80. The pace of change in life expectancy is […]

Do you want to know why I write this blog?

Do you want to know why I write this blog?

“Have you ever wondered why you write these blogs and send them out, rather than just working on yourself, in the darkness?” This was a great question I was asked last week. The truth is, I have wondered. An awful lot. And I find it quite bizarre that I haven’t shared the reasons why I […]

Make Your Last Ever New Year’s Resolution

Make Your Last Ever New Year’s Resolution

A few years I ago I made one last New Year’s resolution. I resolved to never make another resolution again. The good news is that, so far, I have defied the odds and actually achieved that one! The bottom line is – New Year’s resolutions rarely work. In fact, research highlights that just 12% of […]

Why I believe in Bitcoin

Why I believe in Bitcoin

Bitcoin is the largest in a new wave of approaches to currency. I would go into the technical details, but that actually makes understanding it much more confusing! If I explained how the Internet worked, for example, most people would go cross-eyed and wouldn’t want to use it! Trust me, Bitcoin works. It’s very, very […]

Dealing with Dunbar’s Number

Dealing with Dunbar’s Number

I am taking December off. My mind has reached its current limit this year and I need some time to integrate all I’ve been exposed to. It really does interest me whenever I hit a new mental limit, since it focuses me on getting beyond it. I am a life hacker, so I continually look […]

The Life Laundry

The Life Laundry

My family and I are homeless. And it feels good. Last year, we sold the home of my dreams because it did not fit with who we were anymore. It was a beautiful house that we had spent many years of time and effort getting right. The problem is, that during that time we changed […]

Fun Is Free

Fun Is Free

My wife and I have been having a lot of fun this month with our son Charlie. It all started when I read an inspiring blog post on something called Dinovember. For those who have not seen this explosive phenomenon, it involves simply convincing your children that their plastic dinosaurs come alive when they are […]

The Lies I Tell and The Excuses I Make

The Lies I Tell and The Excuses I Make

I am a liar. I lie to those around me all of the time. More disturbingly I lie to myself all of the time. Fear has always really held me back from realising my true potential. Traditionally I have always taken the easy safe road rather than the road that I was destined to follow. […]
