If you’re new…
First of all, welcome! I’m always glad to have new people join. If you want to know more about me and this site, the About page is a great place to start, or the most recent State of the Blog post.
If you want to dive right into the posts, I’d recommend starting with posts tagged The Basics. These are the 101 level posts, a reminder to always come back to the basics before we get swept away by all the noise online.
And if you’re liking what you see, why not join the email list? You’ll get a workbook and you’ll get weekly updates from me on the newest stuff on the blog, get to see what I’m working on before it goes live on the site, and some sneak peeks behind the scenes!
The name (and URL) of this website comes from a metaphor. We can look at the process of creating the life we want to live using the process of building a house.
A house rests upon it’s foundations. The foundation of your house provides the structure, the strength, and the integrity. If the foundations go, the whole house goes.
The habits we have are our foundations.
It’s also a play on words. A reminder to go back to the foundations, the fundamentals, to go back to basics. Let’s do the simple stuff well. We might find that the complicated stuff isn’t needed.
We can: Create a foundation of healthy habits upon which to live a good life.
The Good Life
The Good Life is the life you want to live. It is the dream you envision for yourself. It is a life of meaning and purpose. Of connection with other people.
This is WHY.
Why we embark on a journey of self-discovery.
Why we try to improve our health.
Why we learn.
Why we strive for “good” careers.
Why we aim to improve our relationships.
