Respect The Hustle
“These seats aren’t the most comfortable, are they?” The man next to me had a point. We were 30,000 feet up, somewhere between LAX and JFK. Exactly where we were en route didn’t matter as much as the fact that it was 3 am and I was tired as hellllllllllll. The last few days, I’ve […]

The “Why” and “Who” of Blogging…(And, I’m Back!)
(First person to email me telling me the irony of my title with my picture above will get $1 sent to them via Venmo!!!) . . . “So then why did you stop blogging?” I found myself at a loss for words. Yesterday, my friend Cassidy asked me this simple question on our train ride […]

MJ Will Be Making Jump Shots At 60 (And Why Habits Are Crucial)
If Michael Jordan hypothetically didn’t touch a basketball again until he was 60 years old, he’d still be sinking smooth, silky jump shots whenever he returned to playing the game. Now, you may be thinking, this is obvious considering he is the best basketball player to ever grace a court. Yet, the reason why he is the […]

30 Person Selfies, Shaking Hands With A Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, and Designing One Hell Of A Life
My mind raced as I fiddled around with my less-than-peak-performing computer and spotty WiFi for over an hour as the double decker bus breezed through Norwegian and Swedish countryside this morning. You could only imagine my frustration. Talk about losing patience… Except I didn’t, and that was a new feeling. I mean, maybe the WiFi […]

The Gap Year Experiment Heads To Europe!
Before I begin…an apology. It’s been over 10 DAYS since I’ve last posted, and while I’ve been working on multiple “experiments” in order to share those insights with you and help you tackle major life decisions in an easier way, I have not been so good at giving you updates along the way. Please forgive […]

Ultimate Time Transparency: An Experiment In Time Management
I stumble out of bed to turn off the phone alarm. It reads 11:00 AM. Shitttttt! Such has been the scene for about a month now. The times change (sometimes, I’m up at 9:30 or 10 AM…other times, not until noon), but the results are always the same. I wake up later than I want to, rush […]

Morning Dance Raves, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Evil Time-Stealing Bracelets
YOU WILL THINK THE FOLLOWING IS SIMPLY SCIENCE FICTION: Sun rises. A robot follows suit. The robot puts on a suit, and says goodbye to his son. Thirty minutes later – no more, no less – the robot attaches itself to a larger machine, where it joins the gear-grinding for eight hours. No more, no less. Robot […]

1 Man. 1 Year. 52 Jobs…The Ultimate Career Gap Year
JARED: A big part of the Gap Year Experiment mission is to help people become more conscious in making major life decisions. From decisions surrounding higher education (which is where we cover a lot of ground given my current age range, experiences, and pending decisions), to those surrounding careers, mid-life crises, and more, it’s my goal to […]

Taking Back Your Freedom To Learn – [The Guide To Becoming an Independent Learner]
JARED: I’m excited to share this guest blog post with you all today. Our guest is the wonderful Line Dalile, typing in all the way from Dubai. Line self-describes as an autodidact, who writes poetry AND code (interesting mix, I’d say…). You may have seen her articles in The Huffington Post (and in fact, she […]
