Doing Things

January 6, 2011

My friend Nathan who I met back in the Summer of 2010 said something to me then that has stuck with me ever since:

‘It’s always nice to meet other passionate, energetic people who like to not just talk, but do things.’

This really resonated with me, and it gave me a boost of confidence during a challenging time that I was going through.   It turned out the friendships that formed during this period of my life enabled Spirit of the Gulf Coast to become a reality and for many positive changes to take place as a result.  Doing things in this context is something that I continually aspire to, especially when they help make the world a better place to live.

I have always prided myself on ‘doing things’ that many people think are crazy, irrational, impractical, dangerous, etc.  This is what makes me feel alive.  These are the things that bring joy to my life, and often the lives of others.  I’ve come to realize lately that although many of my adventures are done as part of my own personal journey, they have affected many others, some of which I don’t even know about.

Free E-Book: What Matters Now

December 21, 2009

Last week, several of the people I follow on Twitter mentioned Seth Godin’s recent e-book What Matters Now, and after a few days of coming back to it again and again to absorb a few nuggets at a time, I finally finished it last night and had to share it.  This is a fantastic example of collaboration, sharing, honesty, and inspiration.  I can’t think of a better thing to do than share this with everyone I know.

Each page covers a thought-provoking insight from a different author; there are many well-known authors as well as some I had never heard of before.  I hope you enjoy the e-book as much as I did.  Special thanks to Seth Godin and all the contributors for this magnificent collection of thoughts and inspiration!
