Finding Your Why

Sometimes we get lost on the way to the playground, even though it’s only around the block.

That’s how I’ve felt for a good part of this year. The good thing is, I’ve been consulting my inner map and making course corrections to put me back on track. Rather than write about it, I thought I’d do a bit of vocal rambling on the topic of finding your why and getting back on track when you feel lost.


Please let me know if you’d like me to continue with the podcast format since it’s much easier for me. And leave a comment with topics you’d like me to cover.

Thanks for listening.

    ありがとう😊 I very much enjoyed the podcast. The topic was on point and hit home with me. I would like to know more how you manage to juggle all your “work” and playtime with family life. Things are likely a little different in Japan, their culture and mindset being different than how things are in North America but I would still like to hear your take on the matter.

      Thank you, Sarah! こちらこそ!
      Actually not that different from elsewhere in the world but managing all the crazy stuff in life is definitely something I could discuss. 🙂

    Hi Ryan!

    For me is better to use the old written method. I have difficulties to understand spoken English. Maybe a transcription could solve my problem.

    In any case thanks for sharing your experience

      Hi Jose, thanks for your comment and I totally understand since I live in another country. Right now I honestly don’t have the time to focus on doing transcriptions but maybe in the future.

    Hi Ryan,

    I enjoyed the podcast and your look at the topics at hand! For me it was good to hear that I’m not the only one who’s currently struggling. Even the topics mentioned are similar for me: I’m in search of my personal why and i find this to be quite existential at times ;-).
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experience made so far. I’m definitely looking forward to more podcasts!

    As for topic “requests”: I’d appreciate some insights on your considerations regarding nutrition as well as your experience with work/life balance, especially in times when the children are young.

    Thanks and best regards,
