Giving Myself Permission to Sleep In

Last week I announced I was writing a new book about waking up early, yet the past few months I've struggled to maintain enthusiasm for my own morning routine. The routine I started and have been pursuing for over…

Fear and Resistance: Gym Edition

The other day I went to the gym for the first time in 3 years. I hate to admit it, but I have resistance and fear of going to the gym.  Probably because I don't like to be seen struggling or looking weak. The day I decided to go to the gym I woke up and felt the following which are classic…

Success, Depression, and Awakening

I’ve been an artist with big dreams ever since I was a kid. I wanted to grow up and make movies like Steven Spielberg or design video games like Mortal Kombat or Final Fantasy. I ended up going to art school and majored in Computer Animation, but I got burned out before I graduated. I finished my degree, but didn’t…

Someone to Talk To

A couple weeks ago I was having a really bad night. It's too personal for me to want to share publicly right now, but I needed someone to talk to. I could have talked to my wife, friends, parents, or even the myriad of followers I have on social media. But I needed someone who didn't know me to lend…
