According to Aristotle:

“The unexamined life is not worth living”Aristotle

So let’s examine life. Explore with me. Join me in the hunt for things that inspire personal growth and leadership development.

This site features three main focuses: Friday Challenges, in which I deliver a one-minute message designed to challenge your thinking and move you to action; Books, in which I share short snippets of the books I’m reading; and Insights, in which I share long-form thoughts and unpack deeper issues.

I am making no promises except to say that I’m willing to peek into the dark corners. To look where others may not. To challenge everything. To question fiercely.
