My Why

I believe time is our most valuable commodity. I believe the way we experience time is not linear and our perceptions of time are strongly influenced by the stories we tell, and the meaning we make. I believe, absent action to correct it, each summer will feel shorter than the last and life is not just short, it is actively getting shorter. I believe there is a way to slow, stop and reverse the perceived acceleration of time and live summers longer than when we were kids; but it is not easy. I believe by designing lives focused on our strengths, we can increase our resilience and take on larger challenges, face bigger risks and create more meaning. I believe we can innovate our lives to avoid the malaise of modernity, the stifling conventions and muffling routines that lead men to small risks, small rewards and a lack of meaning. The goal of “The Art of Really Living” is to play the role of a chrysalis, breaking the clay of grey men, revealing the colors of the sleeping poet, painter or musician within.
