Do You Suffer from L.I.P.S.?

WHEN I THINK ABOUT taking a big trip somewhere (big = flying), I get caught up in the daydreaming, investigating, and planning. I love to check out different places to stay, what sights there are to see, and any adventures that await me. I get butterflies in my stomach and can't ...

How To Navigate Inspiration Overload

THIS WEEK, I've been reaching out to people whose work I love, trust, and respect to ask them to read an advanced copy of my new book and, if they are so inclined, provide an endorsement. As I considered who I wanted to ask, six or seven people immediately came ...

Fear + Excitement = Winning Combo

A COUPLE years ago, Melissa and I were walking through a village in Belize on our way to breakfast. While talking about where we planned to go hiking that day, Melissa pointed out that the trails were behind a place that offered a zip lining tour through the jungle. "What do ...

Are You Foolish Enough to Chase Your Dreams?

Indecisive? Your Soul Knows

We recently hired a contractor to help us with the framing of our tiny house. I got a good vibe from Chris from our phone conversation. He sounded professional, driven, intrigued by our project, and excited to quote the job. One check mark in the “pros” column. We set up a ...

All the Feelings

My dad loved Thanksgiving for many of the same reasons I do: we spend the day with family, we eat delicious food, we laugh a lot, and we spend time sharing what we’re grateful for. Despite lots of love, this year was just a bit somber without him there. Melissa and ...

It’s been a couple weeks since the election and as I begin to come out of the bubble of grief about my father’s passing, I’m faced with a country in turmoil over the shocking result in the presidential race.   I’m sure it comes as no surprise that my political leanings point ...
