If you can compare a chapter of your book to your own hustle in 2018—which one will it be and why?
Part three of the book is all about self-discovery, you know, for me that's very much an ongoing process. So that was definitely part of my life in 2018. And then I think manifesting my magic—turning my idea into a physical product that can shared, which was the book. My focus was to take everything I learned and believed and to turn them into something that could be a vehicle for my future.
In the art of the daily grind, you have major victories and major upsets. What were some of your wins and losses you can carry over to develop a bigger momentum heading into 2019?
I think my biggest win in 2018 was finally getting my book out and starting regularly attending Barry's Bootcamp; discovering an exercise community that I feel can really support me in achieving my physical goals which will serve all my other goals. I think those would be the two positives.
I don’t have any major losses other than time. But I would like to put more focus on manifesting in bigger and more meaningful ways. Taking the message of the book and reaching a lot more people.
It is also a constant thing for me to live in the moment. I spend a lot of time thinking about where things are going, instead of enjoying that specific moment in time. I just want to cultivate more of an appreciation to living in now and enjoying life.
What is your favorite piece of content you wrote for ONE37pm and why?
I think "Why Simplifying Your Life and Pursuits Is So Important" is my favorite piece I wrote it for ONE37pm because it's a first principle truth, and I think the idea of "Telic vs. Atelic Pursuits" is a simple change that gives someone the opportunity to be tremendously more fulfilled. If you could shift from that activity that's telic, an activity that has a clear end and is project based, to an activity that is atelic, something that is endless like learning to play the guitar or backgammon, you will be much more fulfilled. If you do things that are atelic they continue to give back to you and that I will make you much more fulfilled and more productive. That's a very important lesson someone can learn and apply to their life easily. Simple hacks like that can make a huge impact.
