EPISODE 394: How to Climb Mt Everest Without Leaving the United States

I have a challenge for you. Take a pencil to paper and map out your past five years on a line graph with peaks being the great experiences and valleys being the lows. I’d be willing to guess you have a deep valley (or two!) every single year, but what about a peak? What about a moment or an experience that you’ll cherish as a memory for the rest of your life? Do you have one?

Most people who listen to the podcast value experiences over possessions, but are we doing enough to actively craft amazing moments in our lives? I’m not. I’d like to do better. Listen in on this week’s show to get ideas.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Why it’s important to focus on your life resume, not just your work resume
  • How to create peak moments in life
  • Why natural + hard things can create magic
  • How to live life on your own terms
  • How to rethink your relationship with time
