I’m an armchair clinical psychologist/literature professor living a business man’s life.

What is an unusual habit or an absurd thing that you love?

I only take cold showers.

What new belief, behavior, or habit has most improved your life?

Serenity Prayer

Are there any quotes you think of often or live your life by?

A fit body, a calm mind, a house full of love. These things cannot be bought. They must be earned. — Naval Ravikant

What is the book you’ve given most as a gift, and why?

Paulo Coehlo’s The Alchemist. Read it and you’ll understand.

What purchase of $100 or less has most positively impacted your life?

Noise cancelling headphones. They have greatly improved my productivity at work and at home.

Conversation. Whenever you have curious, caring people congregate in nature for vulnerable discourse, amazing things happen.
