Start Here

Welcome!

Welcome, my name is Evan and I’m truly glad you are here. 

This website is a place where I explore how to go about identifying, constructing, and living a life of purpose and meaning.

What is a purposeful and meaningful life??

Before I go any further, I should explain what I mean when I use the words “purpose” and “meaning”. 

A life of PURPOSE & MEANING is:

– Living your true, authentic self

– Doing work that you love

– Making time to be with people you care about

– Collecting memories

– Being present every day

– Recognizing what makes you happy and excited

– Giving back to the world

– Positively affecting people 

Your list might look a little different than mine. That’s okay. The important thing is not what is on your list, but rather that you have a list.

I spent the first 23 years of my life without a list and I always felt like I was merely going through the motions.  I felt like I was living but I never felt ALIVE.  It’s not a terribly enjoyable realization to discover.

Because consider the following… 

Life is a journey from A –> B.  Birth to death.

You’ve already accomplished A (good work!) and eventually you’ll get to B whether you like it not.  But there’s a lot that goes on between A and B. And it’s up to you to fill in the details.

Someone smart from a long time ago said that life is a journey, not a destination.  

Your journey is what you make of it.  You don’t want to spend it merely going through the motions.

So let’s start living more.

Get Started.

There’s a lot happening on this website and sometimes it’s easy to miss some of the content.  Which is why I strongly recommend you join my weekly-ish newsletter.

Be warned – it’s not your typical newsletter.  It will allow you to get your hands on my resources and writings, but it also has some goodies and surprises you will only receive if you join.

And like some of the best things in life, it’s 100% free!
