Time-Traveling Cultural Anthropologist
If you suddenly had the ability to travel through time, what would you do? Would you go back and avoid that one particular bad relationship? Would you buy stock in Zoom or stop wearing those neon jam shorts from the 80’s a lot sooner?
The concept of time travel is an endless human fascination. If it weren’t, then movies like Back To The Future or books like HG Wells Time Machine wouldn’t be known as classics. If I could combine two of my favorite fascinations, I would become a time-traveling, cultural anthropologist. A few things from my endless list would be the moment man first created fire, the building of the pyramids in Egypt, or... Burning Man before it got popular. But what if you could be a time-traveling cultural anthropologist to study you specifically?
If you were to go back just a year or two, would you notice a difference? Would you feel embarrassed by how immature you seemed compared to now, or do you seem just the same?
And then... what if you could go forward in time and see your future-self based on the trajectory you’re on right now with your health, your relationships, or your purpose? Upon seeing that future, what would you immediately want to change about your life today?
You see, who you truly aspire to be is never a place to get to… it’s a place to come from. Once you know who you want to be, you can actually start to become that now, which completely changes the future. That unique ability makes us different from every other being on the planet, and yet... almost every human on the planet misses the opportunity to do this.
That’s also why I have devoted my life to helping leaders who are here to make a difference come from that place. If that sounds like you, then it’s your future I’m here to serve. Reach out if you’d like to talk. Let's find your inspiration.
