If that sounds like your kind of awesome, write me.
That sounds at least twice as awesome as "security consultant," right?
But it has taken me to some great places. My favorite was Bangalore, with pizza on Indian flatbread, English rose gardens, and haggling in markets. Melbourne was a close second, because I met awesome people and lived like a local for the month.
There are two types of honesty: Saying what's on your mind in the moment, and figuring out how to express yourself in a way your listener can take in, hearing your intent instead of reacting to a poorly-chosen word. No one can achieve that second type of honesty all the time, but it's always my goal.
Also, teaching. I've been teaching since age 14. First martial arts (I'm very good at defeating wooden boards), later jewelry making, swing dance, biofield healing, and computer security.
And a friend says: Staying calm, holding space, and only then finding a solution. So many guys jump to the solution.
Consulting has made me less attached to possessions. I can be perfectly happy with a hotel room and a suitcase, as long as I have a problem worth solving and a laptop to share my ideas.
And one for the literalists saying food and water: I could never do without the strong nuclear force. Because where would we be without it? Free-floating protons and neutrons, that's where.
Here's how I look at it: If this phenomenon can reduce pain, that suggests it can influence nerves. If we understood that mechanism and guided it with neurology and other medical sciences, what could we do for alzheimer's, depression, epilepsy, and more? Those three diseases alone affect roughly 10% of the world's population.
Questions like that guide my work. I've practiced since 1991, written and taught since 2010, and have a company in the works to contribute to the peer-reviewed research being published.
