Pivot to Pivot

By |2018-01-01T17:47:07+13:00December 19th, 2016|Business, Entrepreneur, Introspection|

I took almost a year off of this blog, and there were many reasons for my absence. The biggest reason is: during 2016 I pivoted my main brand three times. Pivot 1: Pivot 2: Pivot 3: Pivot One Internally, I still call this project Father Fitness, even though it went [...]

Annual Review 2015

By |2018-02-21T19:38:36+13:00December 31st, 2015|Introspection|

This was a great year. 2015 gave me more victories than failures, and instead of pressing courageously forward, this year I paused to marshal my resources, and decide on the direction I want to go for the next five years. The biggest lesson I learned this year: I've now been a member of Fizzle for [...]

The Re-launch of my Weekly Newsletter – Habits of Excellence

By |2016-12-26T14:40:10+13:00August 4th, 2015|Introspection|

Writing a newsletter can be very rewarding, stressful, introspective, lucrative, and ineffective. My weekly newsletter habit has been inconstant over the past ten years, and has gone through a lot of incarnations. This is what I've learned so far: The regularity of writing every week keeps your writing polished. It is only through regular exercise [...]

Projects of Passion

By |2016-12-26T14:50:14+13:00March 10th, 2015|Family, Introspection|

Have you ever had that one project you could never put down? A passion that haunts you, and won’t let you go, no matter how many failures you encounter along the way? That’s how treasure hunts have been for me. When I’m making a treasure hunt, walking through a city looking for hidden locations in plain [...]

The Hero in Prison

By |2016-12-26T14:39:57+13:00January 19th, 2015|Introspection|

Reading the Letter From Birmingham Jail was the beginning of my philosophical studies. Written by Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1963, this letter was the first rational and ethical defense I had read of the imprisoned man. I was eighteen years old, in plenty of trouble with the law, and in between punishments for crimes that I did [...]

2014 annual review

By |2014-12-31T12:10:54+13:00December 31st, 2014|Introspection|

2014 was a good year. The year before was a year of great upheaval for the Huntress Clan; we moved 4 times, left Costa Rica, and returned to the United States. 2014 was a year of landing, of digging roots, and gaining momentum. The two regular habits I use to look at the year past and the year ahead, declaring [...]

Talking Taboo

By |2014-05-21T15:21:15+12:00May 21st, 2014|Introspection|

When you introduce money, politics, or religion as a topic of conversation, you venture into the intimate.
