Almost everyone agrees that the goal of life is to be happy, yet I went to school for 20+ years and we spent a cumulative ~20 hours discussing happiness, purpose, and the other foundational aspects of living a successful life.
While I’ll never understand why we don’t teach kids in school about the most important aspects of life, if you’re interested in learning about these topics then you’ve come to the right place.
I’ve spent much of the last decade learning about life philosophies and optimizing my own life. Now I’m working hard to share my learnings with others.
You can read my full story here but in a nutshell: I graduated high school in 2010 as a depressed, lost, and low self-esteem kid.
- I figured out how to overcome depression.
- I quit my Silicon valley job to travel the world, have been happier than ever before, and have found purpose in life
- I financially retired at 28
- I won a 10 year battle with acne
- And a lot more!
I’ve gone through a long journey to rebuild myself and my life and I’m excited to share the resources that helped me so that they can help you!
Here are all of my favorite resources on living a great life!
My Most Important Lessons
My Two Favorite General Resources
If you’re looking to make major improvements in life, I strongly recommend these two resources.
Every time I go through a major life change I use these to reset and to recalibrate my path because they’re phenomenal guiding forces.
Brian Johnson is similar to a Tim Ferriss or a Tony Robbins in the sense that he’s a life hacker and philosopher. But why I like him more is that his content is focused around specific topics (i.e. 60 minutes on happiness, 60 minutes on purpose, 60 minutes on living a great year, etc.).
His content helped me to rebuild my life when I started nomading and I’m forever grateful to him.
His tagline is: “Isn’t it a bit odd that most schools go from science to math to history, but somehow miss the class on how to live.”
Tip: Start with the Optimal Living 101 Master Class. That’s where you’ll find the most important learnings!
The Alchemist is a fictional story and best-selling book (65 million copies sold to date).
The story is all about ignoring society and the voices of others, figuring out what you want to do with your life, and then chasing your goals with relentless focus.
It’s a great story about the journey of life!
