This page is focused on what I’m doing right now. It’s all about what I’ve got in the works at this moment in time.

Originally inspired by Derek Sivers, this Now page is dedicated to my present focus. And because so much of what I think about, write about, and create is based on goal success, that’s what I share here.

The goals that I’m currently working on.

My goals right now (in no particular order)

Last updated: 4/18/22

Complete at least two books a month

Reading helps me learn, and I love to learn.

Take my daughter on a date once a month

To foster a strong relationship with her.

Go on a date with my wife once a month

To reinforce our bond.

Go to the beach at least twice a month

I’m happy when I’m there.

Do three 24-hour fasts a week

I feel good when I have less food in my system. Long-term, there may be body fat loss and anti-aging benefits as well.

Four nights a week, go to sleep (ie. close my eyes) with eight hours and 40 minutes until my alarm will go off

To ensure I get a full night’s sleep and am well-rested for the following day.

*From tracking my sleep over the years, I know that in order to get eight hours of sleep, I need to close my eyes with eight hours and 40 minutes until my alarm will go off.

Do something physically active each day

To burn excess energy so that I may operate at my best.

Spend five+ minutes thinking of things I’m grateful for, five days a week

To appreciate all the good in my life; to see more of the positive and less of the negative.

Say “Hara hachi bu” before every meal. (Fill your stomach to 80%)

To help me be mindful of how much I eat.

At least once a week, complete Byron Katie’s Judge Your Neighbor worksheet

To see situations clearly and to make better decisions because of it. To practice acceptance and non-judgment.

*This practice doesn’t need to be formal. I don’t need to complete the entire worksheet or even write anything down. So long as I consciously practice doing the work, it counts.

Do a modified One-Punch Man workout four days a week

For full-body strength and fitness.

*I will start easy and add difficulty each week. Eventually, I will do 100 squats, pushups, crunches, and body rows, plus either a six-mile run, one-mile swim, or 10-mile bike ride with each workout.

That’s it

I hope you’ve found my goals helpful and motivating! If you have any questions or want to start a conversation – you can email me at
