A Guide to Good Sleep

Sometimes I wonder if I’m annoying because I talk so much about good sleep, but even when I talk to readers about it, it seems like almost no one actually prioritizes and gets good sleep. This is amazing to me, as it’s actually a pretty pleasant and easy way to get a huge boost in […]

Extended Travel in Relationships

Maintaining a healthy relationship while traveling can be hard, but it doesn’t have to be. Like anything, there are pros and cons, and by mitigating the cons and focusing on the pros, you can even make it a good thing. As someone who travels for the majority of the year, I have a lot of […]

How to Plan a Group Trip With Friends

I love planning trips for my friends. I think that it’s a great way to do a service to my friends, to spend time with them, and to foster new connections between them. I believe that if all of my friends are good friends with each other, that makes my friend circle very strong. The […]

Committment First Time Management

I’m usually not all that busy, at least in terms of items on my schedule. I have infinite things that I could do, but very few of them have to happen at specific times or on specific days. If I do have a commitment, though, I will be there exactly on time. An exceptional situation […]

Would I Be a Nomad if I Had Kids?

People ask me all the time if I’d still be a nomad if I had kids, or they say that it’s impossible or difficult to be a nomad if you have kids. I want to answer the question, but I think there’s something even more important to talk about in relation to this. The short […]

It or Nothing

Right now I’m writing every single day, averaging around 4000 words. I have a big batch of writing I want to do, and I’ve broken it up over 10 days. This sounds like a daunting task, but I find it dead simple to complete, primarily due to one tactic that I often use. I call […]

Simulating Others

One of the most common errors I see amongst well-meaning people are errors of awareness. They’re people with the ability to influence and they only want to help, but they lack a fundamental awareness of how others will react. This is particularly unfortunate because their efforts go misguided and can harm rather than help. The […]

Dating Advice for Women

I don’t usually give dating advice to women, but recently two of my female friends have been asking me a lot about dating, so I figured I’d consolidate some of the stuff we’ve been talking about here. Some of this stuff will apply to men, too, but for once I wanted to focus on the […]

Aloha 2018

Well, that’s another amazing year in the books! 2017 was an exceptionally great year for me, so much so that I thought that 2018 wouldn’t be able to stack up. But this year was even better than 2017 by a decent margin. As is now tradition, I’ll talk about some of the highlights of the […]

What I Learned Starting Two Little Startups

For about three years I worked really hard on a startup called Sett. It’s a blogging platform that did a lot of things very different, and, in fact, is still the blogging platform that my blog runs on because I’m totally unwilling to give up the features that I’ve gotten used to. At the same […]

Standard Diagnostics

It’s always tempting to look for complicated or clever solutions to our problems. We love hacks and secret unknown solutions, rather than straightforward answers to our problems. There’s a time and place to get creative, but usually it’s best to exhaust the basics first. Whenever I’m not feeling my best, whether it’s a lack of […]
