You want more.

More achievement and success. More meaning and happiness. More fulfilling relationships and better health.

It’s not that you aren’t grateful for the life you’ve created — a life borne out of striving and hard work. But in your heart you know you’re capable of something greater.

Having more will require more from you. More clarity and courage. More energy and focus. And more consistent, quality output than you’ve ever done before.

Other men have done it, and so can you.

But how?

The problem is that your old attitudes, tools, and tactics can’t take you there. Doing more of the same is like pressing the gas pedal when your car is stuck — you just spin your wheels.

Your bad habits create friction, slowing your momentum. And these insidious forces slowly poison your life, eroding your confidence, stealing your joy, and sapping your drive.

But you cannot get stuck here, settling for the status quo. Quietly watching your dreams sink in the stinking mud of mediocrity.

To escape this trap, you need an edge — both mental and physical — that will give you the clarity, energy, productivity, and momentum necessary to perform beyond your current limits.

That’s exactly what I’ve done (repeatedly) over the past 23 years.

Challenge by challenge — I learned important lessons that now inform my approach to productivity and high-performance on this blog.

Overcoming anxiety, I found inner strength and peace. Rising above anger and recklessness, I became a leader for my community. Conquering fear and hopelessness, I healed my body. Transforming self-doubt and ignorance, I became educated. Breaking the cycle of toxic relationships, I found lasting love and fulfillment.

Turn by turn, I pushed the wheel of life. Improving myself, breaking through barriers, and expanding my possibilities. And in my seeking I learned what it takes to succeed beyond our current limits.

The insights gained through these lessons fuel my mission to help men like you.

Isn’t it strange?

We live in a time of so much opportunity, and yet still struggle. So many men have so much more to offer.

The world needs better men. Better fathers, brothers, sons, husbands, team members, and leaders. We need productive men. Capable and courageous men who contribute consistently on a higher level.

I help good men do more of what matters.

To do that, I’ll need to show you how to focus in spite of overflowing inboxes, instant messages, and social media. To cultivate equanimity in a world driven by sensationalism and outrage. To live with courage — able to say and do the hard things because you’re aligned with your deeper truth. To build habits that carry you forward, even when things get difficult.

This blog helps men like you achieve what you’re capable of (it’s more than you can imagine). Putting you in control of your time and energy. Helping you master your attention and focus. Giving you the tools and strategies necessary to become the master of your work, relationships, and well-being.

If it was possible in my life, it’s possible in yours.

You’ve read this far, so I know you can feel this. That is the feeling of your future self nudging you to take action.
