LASIK Surgery – What I Like About It, and What I Don’t

More than two weeks have passed since I had corrective eye surgery (LASIK). I was always intrigued by the results of the surgery. I was in college when I first met someone who had the procedure done. They had just left the clinic only several hours prior, and were going about their day, only without …

My Passport (2008-2018)

With my upcoming trip to Tanzania at the end of June, I needed to renew my passport. I consider my passport as a souvenir, not just a travel document. Whenever I tell people about all the places I’ve traveled to, they want to see the stamps that I collected along the way. So I decided …

The Case For Working Remotely

Yesterday, I attended a seminar hosted by Gerry Robert, author of Millionaire Mindset, about writing a business book and using it to break into public speaking, grow company sales, and become an expert in your field. While I was listening to Gerry, I had several ideas for my own business book. A book about working remotely, …

How I Use 168 Hours of My Week

My New Motorcycle

I read over 40 Books in 2017, but I could have read more

I counted down the list of books that I read over the past year. I read 41 books. My reading habits change depending on my lifestyle. In 2014, I read over 70 books. It was easy to find time to read. I was commuting every day, sometimes for over 2 hours a day. At work, …

Austin: How To Move On A Whim

Earlier this week, I stepped foot in Austin, Texas for the first time. This was also my first time visiting the state. I’ve lived in New York City for most of my life. I’ve never seen the American South, but I’ve always found the State of Texas intriguing.  Before last week, I lived in Bogota, …

Exercising in Sub-Zero Temperatures

This winter in New York City is officially the coldest winter in history. Walking only 5 minutes from my car to my aunt’s building on 37th and 9th, my face was frozen stiff, my eyes tearing and stinging, and it felt like there were shards in the wind, too. I put myself the habit of …

My Favorite Books of 2017

I read close to 40 books in 2017. I was living in Bogotá. In La Candelaria (downtown), there is a street with what feels like dozens of bookshops and other stands placed outside where people sell books in all kinds of languages. I would frequent this area every other week or so to shop for …
