Danielle LaPorte: Truth, Devotion and the Evolution of Joy

Danielle LaPorte is soul-personified. I’ve known her for nearly a decade, and in that time, while so much has changed, one thing has remained consistent.

How to Do What You Love When You Can’t Just Walk Away

Don’t Just Ship It

Comes a time you’ve gotta get out of your head and just act.

The Experimental Life

There’s this mythology. Go all in. Don’t dabble. Don’t play. Don’t make it a hobby, make it your “one thing.” From the very beginning. Even if you have no idea if you’ll like it, how it’ll make you feel and whether it can ever really be what you’ve told yourself and the world you’re going […]

The Unfortunate Middle

We are taught, from a young age, to exist in the middle. Everything in moderation. Don’t be a tall poppy, nor a shrinking violet. Good enough is good enough. The middle way, middle-class, mid-tier. That’s where we want to be. Not so big that we get cut down, and not so small that we can’t […]

You know that little button on Facebook you click to “like” something? Well, as one of the early employees at Facebook, today’s guest, Leah Pearlman, came up with that idea.

Naked and Silent: Asking Is Not Receiving [encore]

There’s this odd thing that happens the moment after we ask for help. While we’re asking, we stand in a place of surrender.

Reason and Passion

There’s this beautiful verse in Khalil Gibran’s book, The Prophet that speaks to the interplay between reason and passion. It reminds us that these two qualities, so often treated as opposing forces and even warring world-views, are actually essential and hopelessly co-mingled elements of a live well-lived.
