I was sitting on the NYC subway reading a new book. To my right, my girlfriend was sitting next to me.
The book I was reading had just released, it’s premise was that if you found and did work you love you would always feel motivated and happy to do that work.
“Follow your passion”
You’ve probably heard this message before, maybe you’ve even given it a shot yourself.
This messaging has become the norm in the personal development world and this book was my last straw.
“This is so dangerous, someone is going to make a bad decision because of this book” I said to my girlfriend in anger.
“Yeah I agree” she replied.
“Why can’t we make personal development practical? Why does it always need to be so fluffy?” I said.
“You know what, someone needs to do something, maybe I’ll start a podcast about it.”
“You should!” she replied.
This conversation kicked off a chain of events that has changed my life in more ways than I even know.
I became obsessed with solving this problem, with taking a core philosophy around personal development that I knew could work for everyone and bringing it to the world.
That core philosophy?
“All big changes come from the tiny leaps you take every day”
It was simple, but I knew it was real, I knew it would work.
Most importantly? That philosophy has become the commonality across all of my work.
At the end of the day, it’s not actually about personal development.
It’s about understanding the factors that cause and affect change across all of life. Change on a personal level, changes in society and culture, and change on a global scale.
In my content, art, and businesses I will explore these topics and create frameworks around them in order to help each of us harness those factors.
