2016 has been an interesting year for me.  

It's been one of transition and growth and change.

It's been a year that's ended a long career in one world and kick started a new career going out on my own.

It's been a year of loss losing pioneers like Toby Hemenway, Gene Logsdon, and Bill Mollison;  and it's been a year of addition as a beautiful daughter entered my life.

I have a grown a lot and changed a lot as a person.  And honestly I feel like I am more me than I have ever been.

It's a me that's been found through a lot of self-reflection, writing, literally hundreds of podcasts, and conversations with people like Javan.

Along the way I have learned a lot.

Today I will be sharing some of what I learned as Javan and I go through our top 5 lessons from 2016.

In total 10 simple ways of looking at life, approaching life, and thinking about life that can change your life tomorrow.

I look at a lot of these lessons as base principles in an approach to life that very much contradicts the status quo.  

None of these lessons require any money or technology to implement. There are no tools or techniques here.

It's simply changing your approach.  

As 2016 comes to an end, take what you can from this episode, to align what you do in life more with who you are.
