Get to know me: My Top 10’s

In regards to me not having an entire 10 for a lot of these lists…It makes me sad. I guess I need to have more adventures, read more books, watch more movies, and learn new things that excite me!

Also, I’m thinking about changing the name of this blog to “Retired until 35!” The new slant on the blog will be that if you’re capable of doing whatever you want to while you’re young…WHY NOT DO IT!? You have the rest of your life to work, and as you get older, your energy, enthusiasm, and ability to do so much only diminishes. So I think I’m going to start preaching “early retirement” and “soul searching” as means to find your passion and ultimately what will fulfill you and make you happy in life!

What are your thoughts?

Anyways, here are some of my top 10 lists so you can get to know me a bit better.  As my tastes change and I come across new things, I’ll be updating it.


  1. “A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.”

    — Lawrence Pearsall Jacks

  2. “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!”  -Benjamin Franklin
  3. “The more we associate experience with cash value, the more we think that money is what we need to live. The more we associate money with life, the more we convince ourselves that we’re too poor to buy our Freedom. ”  -Rolph Potts, Vagabonding
  4. “I don’t want to be product of my environment, I want my environment to be a product of me!”     -Jack Nicholson acting, The Departed
  5. “If you can’t say somethin’ nice, don’t say nothin’ at all.”    -Thumper, Disney movie Bambi.
  6. “Having an unusually large goal is an adrenaline infusion that provides the endurance to overcome the inevitable trials and tribulations that go along with any goal. Realistic goals, those restricted to the average ambition level, are uninspiring and only fuel you through the first or second problem, at which point you throw in the towel. If the potential pay off is mediocre or average, so is your effort.”                     -Tim Ferriss
