On two birthdays.
- Man’s Search for Meaning
Meaning is found not in what we expect from the world, but what the world expects from us.
- It’s Okay to Be Here
How mindfulness finally clicked for me.
On the completion of my 29th year of life.
- Madness, Rack, and Honey
We must waste what little time we can with all our heart.
- The Nature of Privilege
Privilege is less about perks you receive than about problems you don't have.
- The Drunkard’s Walk
We’re naturally poor judges of probability. Correcting our flawed intuitions about chance would leave us feeling less guilty, more grateful, and generally happier.
- The Overview Effect
A literal new perspective can lead us to a figurative one.
On the occasion of my 28th birthday.
- Navigating Stuckness

- A Confluence of Desires
Simply making a list of the things you’d like to change about your life can be remarkably cathartic and show you some patterns to make achieving them less daunting.
- A Short Lesson in Perspective
It is possible to get so busy digging a hole that you don’t have time to take stock of how deep you’re in it.
- Stochastic Planet
Random teleportation can provide a healthy dose of perspective.
- Happy, the Movie
Happiness is not a goal to be attained, but a skill which takes practice.
