Many of the things I’ve done in my life are pretty extreme. I ate ramen noodles for a year straight. Retired in my early 30s. Moved to Thailand. These aren’t ordinary activities or ideas for most people. They’re extraordinary. And that’s perhaps what makes them even more desirable for me. I don’t like thinking or living like other people.
But I don’t want anyone else out there to think they have to do just like me in order to live an extraordinary life. You don’t have to be extreme in order to be extraordinary.
