About Tyler Watkins (for the 3 of you who are interested)
When I was younger I worked at Dairy Queen.
Then I grew up, got a degree in Engineering, and spent my 20’s chasing money in the Oil and Gas Industry in dozens of countries on 4 continents.
After getting an education in the world I’ve made some decent/lucky investments and been able to semi-retire on Florianopolis Island in the south of Brazil.
I’ve won my freedom.
But as Eric Hoffer writes.
“Freedom aggravates at least as much as it alleviates frustration. Freedom of choice places the whole blame of failure on the shoulders of the individual. And as freedom encourages a multiplicity of attempts, it unavoidably multiplies failure.”
Life was much easier following a well trodden path, but it was never satisfying.
In recent years I’ve started the painful work of trying to figure out what life’s all about.
I split my time between:
- Training the Body: martial arts, dancing, strength training
- Nerding out in the Library: reading, writing, thinking
- and doing personal and social experiments.
I take what I learn, and write about the most useful takeaways.
