52 Years of Learning

I like to consider myself an eternal student of life! As I celebrate my 52nd birthday I have written a list of some of the greatest learnings of my time that shape my life now and for the future!

  1. Our greatest gift is our ability to think. Our ability to be conscious, consider all options and make good choices is key to optimal living.

  2. Imagine you are listening to your own eulogy! Live that life! Be that person!

  3. You are 100% responsible! Once you fully embrace this you have agency over your life. “If it is to be, it is up to me!”

  4. Your only measure in life must be to do your best with the conditions that exist… and only you will know the truth!

  5. A key to the good life is to worry only about the things you can control and not at all about the things you cannot.

  6. Relationships and meaningful human connections are the true path to optimal health & happiness.

  7. Life is both a trade off (you cant have it all) & a roller coaster (cherish the good times and persevere in hard times) - once you accept that life is easier!

  8. Life is short & you only get one! Proactively living and being ‘alive’ are vastly different experiences of life!

  9. Your health & wellbeing MUST be the foundation of your existence. Without it you don’t exist!

  10. Nature is the greatest gift our planet has bestowed on us. Immerse in it!

  11. There is a force greater than us… and it really should be ok if everyone believes in a different one!

  12. The 80/20 rule really does work for everything!

  13. Grateful people are happier in almost every way! The good life is perspective.

  14. Cherish your family. When everything is stripped away that is all that matters!

  15. It really is about the journey not the destination.

  16. Remember life is simple, people are good, and the chasms that appear to separate us are often just cracks.

  17. To achieve anything you must do the things you know you should do, when you should do them, even though you don’t want to!

  18. Experiences & memories are our greatest treasures and no one can take them away from you! And the best ones are almost always with people you love.

  19. Your character & integrity define you! Live true to your values! Be a good person & be proud of yourself!

  20. Foster the big 6 virtues - Be kind, grateful, courageous, positive, curious & resilient!

  21. If you get 7.5hrs of sleep every night your experience of life on earth is vastly different

  22. The happiest people in the world are people who love what they are doing, regardless of whether wealth, fame, power and elevated social status ever come their way!

  23. There are two great days in a person's life: the day you were born and the day you discover why. Knowing your purpose makes it exciting to get up every morning and gives every day meaning.

  24. Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever!

  25. Self reflection is our personal growth super power.

  26. The only constant is change. Embrace the spinning of the earth, do not fight it!

  27. Happiness and success take commitment, effort & ruthless consistency. The good life is no free ride.

  28. All you can do, is do all you can do, so why wouldn't you do, all you can do!
