My definition of an epic life is to be awake and aware every day.
Routine is the enemy of time – it makes it fly by. When you’re a kid, everything is astonishing and new. So your brain is awake and turned on. As we get older and our brain figures out the patterns of how the world works, then the alertness can go away.
Some people see travel as a way to keep the brain awake and fascinated. But it’s not about travel. As adults we choose how we get out of our routine — and that can look like anything.
I want to be aware of every day of my life. So when I am 85 years old I’m exhausted because I was alive and awake every single day.
Choose a mind and a soul that is wide awake. Get out of your phone, get out of your routine. And turn your 100 years on this planet into 1,000.
