  • Why Ryan’s life changed when he traveled

Ryan’s 5 Steps to Freedom

1. Decide what you want out of life
2. Cut out the things that don’t serve you
3. Expand your possibilities and incomes
4. Invest in yourself and long-term wealth
5. Give back out of your abundance

Key Lessons Learned

  • Be a savvy business person and cut out things you’re not passionate about
  • Be clear on the life you want and know what’s necessary to build that life
  • An integrated life is when your passions and work feed each other and pull you in a direction toward your goals
  • Some people think they have an ‘integrated life’ but its actually ‘integrated work’ with no life
  • The ‘keg of creativity’ gets tapped when there are constant unforeseen distractions
  • The constant ‘fire fighting’ of email and Facebook kills productivity and becomes the central part of your day
  • ‘Batch’ email time (let it build up and only check a few times a day)
  • Decrease distractions and focus increased productivity
  • Schedules can be rearranged and ‘batched’ e.g focus on email at a specific time and don’t check outside.
  • Put focused work on certain projects and certain times and don’t think about outside of the assigned times
  • Everyone needs time to refuel and do things completely unrelated to work
