The Mastermind. The Most Powerful Tool For Your Success

Are you looking for that boost, that aha moment, that thing that is going to push you over the top, help you achieve your goals at lightning speed, and give you the confidence to go out there and take on the world? Yes?  Well you need to form a mastermind like yesterday. This post could be huge, in fact I could write a whole book on this topic (hmm, interesting idea) but I will spare you the agony and give you the cliff notes. What is a mastermind? A mastermind is quite simply a group of individuals working together synergistically […]

7 Things I Learned While Living In California

***This post is dedicated to my friends I left behind in San Diego. You’ll always have a place in my heart.*** Its been quite awhile since my last post.  I have been going through a big life transformation.  After my trip to Italy and my reintroduction to European culture I knew I needed to be closer to home and closer to Europe.  I have been missing the access to culture and history and I needed an immediate change so I went for it. As David Deida has taught me “Every moment waited is a moment wasted, and each wasted moment […]

4 Questions You Probably Have Never Asked Yourself

***Please share your answers with me as I am so interested in hearing what you have to say-Email to cort@aninspiringexistence.com *** Thats right, I am going to present to you just 4 simple questions that I know for a fact most of you haven’t considered.  How do I know this?  Because I have taken it upon myself to conduct a social experiment in search of people passions and in doing so I have asked 100+ people these 4 simple questions. When I ask most people, they are typically mesmerized with confusion at first.  Many have told me they have never considered these […]

A Friendly Reminder- Walk Barefoot Through The Grass

Do you ever walk through a beautiful park busily hurrying toward where you need to get too? Do you ever get the urge to chuck your shoes and put your feet in the grass? Do you drive by the same beautiful lake or pond everyday thinking about how wonderful it would be to put your feet in and just watch the swans and ducks float by? When was the last time you veered off course, took your shoes off, and felt the green grass against your bare feet or the sand between your toes?  My guess is you may not […]

Step 1 in Lifestyle Design….Success!!

Ok, so I lied to you.  I actually spent 5 weeks in Boston.  When I first got there and told my friends and family I didn’t have a ticket home or a specific timeline to leave, they were all very concerned.  They thought perhaps I was in trouble or that I had lost my job and was on a “sabbatical.”  I mean how does someone just leave their home for 5 weeks?  It turned out to be a successful first experiment in my lifestyle design and now I am addicted. For me it was great! I had a suitcase full […]

My First Experiment In Lifestyle Design

It’s early on a Friday morning and I am on a flight to New York.  I am going to spend 30 days back east because, well, I can.  I have always dreamed about being able to have the freedom to spend time wherever I wanted.  The east coast happens to be where my family and good friends are.  In the past the uncertainty of being away from my home in San Diego would have made me uneasy but now I feel liberated.   I feel like I am getting to do things most people never ever attempt to do and […]

I QUIT My Job Today- A Lesson In Lifestyle Design

I quit my job today.  I am telling the world I am serious this time.  Its for real! I recall a few years ago I was listening to Tim Ferriss’s Four Hour Work Week and he was discussing how to design your ideal career lifestyle.  Mine was being autonomous and being able to work from anywhere I wanted to.  That thought burned a hole in my mind and here we are just a few years later and all the pieces are falling into place. Its scary to leave a good paying job with people who like you in a growing […]
