We all have desires, dreams, and moon shots. But we needlessly waste time in the trenches of instant gratification. A like here, a comment and follow there. Trading long-term initiatives for short-term goals makes immediate delivery less special. The digital world has shrunk our patience and passion for the long haul. Instead, we could be focused on creating something that people talk about long after we die.

The 10 tips outlined in this book are intended to unlock your creativity more consistently. Over time, you’ll develop your own curiosity and rigor. You only live once but your art lives on forever.

In travel, we find ourselves.

Uninspired with the routine of daily corporate life, Paul takes an impromptu trip out to the West Coast to ride the train from Seattle down to Los Angeles with the aim of writing a book.

Brimming with Paul’s curious journal entries and profound observations, this 36-hour odyssey is essential reading for both the wanderer and aspiring artist seeking a deeper pathway in life.
