I was one of the lucky ones to experience what I now call my “rock-bottom-bounce” early, forcing my fight or flight instinct to kick in.
Fortunately, it was fight that prevailed, and over the last 25 years I’ve made it my mission to unlock the age-old mystery of what it truly means to be happy, and how to bottle it.
Along the way I’ve concluded without doubt that our happiness is directly correlated to our HABITS. Habits don’t care if they’re good or bad, helping or hurting us, either way they’re going to do their thing and take their toll on our lives over time.
The 1st version was my mom’s rubber band technique. Handed down from her mom, it consisted of snapping a rubber-band worn around my wrist whenever I had a negative thought. What I Iater came to learn was a Psychology form of aversive conditioning, the method was simple but effective … until you forgot to wear the rubber-band.
This last version is the one I’d been using up until recently. All the while knowing that it could be better, but not quite knowing the best way to improve it. A main drawback was that the system had become so robust that the time commitment of reviewing it all pushed me to go to the weekly, vs daily review. It started to feel like homework I dreaded. Also, the system was on my desktop computer, not the palm of my hand I could easily reference at a moment’s notice.
And now here we are. Science and technology have finally caught up to the point where I can actually make it fun and addicting to improve my life. Instead of just leveling up just on screen, you also AUTOMATICALLY level up in real life. THE APP will revolutionize how we both STOP and BUILD our habits, allowing us to head up into that bright, bold, beautiful sky :).
Get ready to explore galaxies, encounter TRULY intelligent life, and blast through asteroid fields – all the while building more and more momentum in your life!
“Since I never got a spot at the cool kids table, I’ve created my own. Join me so that when someone asks ‘What are you a hardo – why are you trying so hard?’ Your response is ‘Ya I’m trying hard to be the happiest I can be, WHY AREN’T YOU?”
Together, THE BOOK and the APP will help you figure out WHO they are, WHAT they want, and HOW to get it.
