I’m excited to finally launch a top-to-bottom redesigned and restructured website!
My goal with this redesign was to create a welcoming and friendly website that allowed multiple points of entry to valuable content.
Exactly three years ago, I wasn’t much more than another mindless zombie with no purpose in life. To spare you the gory details of how I ended up at what I called my own private hell, let’s just say things didn’t go according to plan.
Five years and a half ago I embarked on an incredible journey to a foreign land. Today I stand showing off the three letters after my name. It’s a bit daunting being called doctor especially when the degree doesn’t mean much.
Instead of running off to join a hippie flock, which is a very appealing lifestyle, I decided I will be taking advantage of those three letters.
I stumbled upon Chris Guillebeau’s manifesto A brief guide to world domination. The manifesto outlines what true freedom is and I was reassured that everything was going to be ok. I highly recommend that you read through this manifesto if you want to learn “how to live a remarkable life in a conventional world”.
What you are about to read is edited (aka web-appropriate) version of the acknowledgments I included in my Dissertation. Some important names have been obviously omitted. This was the easiest part of my PhD Dissertation.
This dissertation presents a piece of work that was rather difficult for me to accomplish, both materially and mentally. The past half-decade has certainly been a roller coaster ride with more downs than ups. This project has been a long process and I would like to acknowledge several individuals who have had an impact on my success.
Accountability is a very powerful tool
I cannot stress how important it is to have accountability.
Being held accountable for your actions means you have to deliver when you promise yourself something in front of others.
I promised myself a lot of things after meeting so many amazing individuals in June 2011.
I decided I was long overdue to finish school.
