You know you have more in you…
…more to uncover, more to give, more to become.
You’re focused, ambitious and driven, but you’re drawn towards something more meaningful and impactful—something that feeds longterm success and satisfaction.
Perhaps you’re looking for tools and insights that simultaneously enrich your life and help you reach your potential—those elements that feed into “excellence and enlightenment, greatness and happiness, performance as well as presence.”
Or maybe you just want to be a better partner, build a better business, or create a better life.
This website is all about weaving ageless wisdom, high performance techniques and mindfulness together to establish a practical philosophy for True Success. It’s where our goals align with our values and where we operate from a place of calm and clarity.
But how do we uncover our values, tap into that calm state, and start to reclaim and reframe success?
Drawing from sources across centuries, cultures, disciplines and religions, we notice strong consensus around habits and traits that lead to a life of peace, meaning and impact. A life that is truly successful in the deepest sense of the word.
There are core themes that come up again and again. I’ve organized them into three distinct states:
Stillness — Clarity — Growth
These three states all interconnected. There’s no growth without clarity, no clarity without stillness, and none of anything without a desire to for something better, long-lasting—something deeper.
A deep dive like this creates habits for a life that’s meaningful, focused and evolving—a life with greater satisfaction, peace, and understanding.
Though the themes are universal, the process is individual. It can’t be achieved by looking to the left or the right because it plays out in everyone’s life differently.
This process isn’t guaranteed, quick or easy. But it is worth it.

The starting point is Cultivating Stillness…
“Do you have the patience to wait
till your mud settles and the water is clear?
– Lao Tzu
We begin this whole process by recognizing the noise in our life, both external (news, media, information) and internal (thoughts, emotions, biases).
Instead of adding checklists, activities and apps to our life, we aggressively eliminate. Instead of searching to add something to solve the “problem,” we subtract obstacles and distractions.
By actively reducing the noise and filtering the BS through essentialism and digital minimalism, we foster a habit of conscious simplicity.
A vital part of cultivating stillness is practicing equanimity; a radical acceptance of the good, the bad, and everything in between.
If that all seems like a bit much, start with this 3-step Quickstart Guide to Stillness, Clarity & Growth.
Which makes room for Clarity…
“Wisdom is not something we have to strive to acquire.
Rather, it arises naturally as we slow down
and notice what is already there.”
– Haemin Sunim
As we remove unnecessary noise, inessential activities and irrelevant stuff, we start to develop an awareness around valuable and non-valuable elements in our life.
We start to recognize our core values and priorities based on how we spend our time, energy, and attention.
For further insights, I explore a mix of modern and ancient philosophies, practices and tools in 90 Second Wisdom (coming soon!).
Which leads to Conscious Cultivation of your Best Self…
““Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”
– Albert Einstein“
So, we’ve delved deep. Now what?
This is where we move from reflection to action, from awareness to application.
With newfound clarity around our essentials, our personal definition of success and our purpose, decision-making and goal-setting is simplified. Our priorities are front and centre. Our actions align with our core values.
Being our best self means living in the moment—not getting caught up in the past or worrying about the future.
We develop intentional habits that allow us to continuous refocus on the process, leaving the result to take care of itself.
We’re on the path to both performance and peace.
