My Intention To Experience The World Fully

It's time to make the commitment and do it.

Since college, I’ve had an unspoken goal to travel and experience the world. Increasingly, I see this is never going to happen until I get real clear about my goal and organize my life to meet it. I want to go large, like 190 countries large. I want to really travel the world, visit every […]

My grandparents were dying of the same conditions I was likely to repeat. Eventually, I increased my activity level, improved my fitness, and found a whole new level of awareness […]
