Took the 508 Cascades Amtrak from Seattle to Portland.
Old fashioned train stations make me smile. They also make me curious. What was life like back then?
Made the trip to visit my good friend from Buffalo, Peter. Peter's a really rad dude - and him and I have both developed similar interests in Personal Development as we look for guiding principles for life in our 20's. (Peter also talked me into signing up for a Tony Robbins event, but I'll save that post for later. I was stressed leading up to my visit as I had a major midpoint presentation for my MBA internship. I was really looking forward to resetting.
Our mutual favorite character in the Personal Development Space is Tim Ferriss. Tim's podcast and books have been absolutely instrumental to shaping our 20's. I appreciate finding elegant solutions to life's problems. We talked about how this has inspired us, and really shaped our lives.
Peter specifically talked about focusing on personal health and fitness. This is especially important to help Peter deal with his narcolepsy. Peter found that controlling his diet and exercise have been key parts of this puzzle and was inspired to share this journey with others on his website - http://www.narcolepsycoach.com/
Anyways, I had a great time catching up with an old friend. We had a jam packed Saturday eating, walking, exploring, eating some more, and even hosting a house warming party and seeing Bill Burr. On Sunday we had the highlight event where we joined Peter's yoga studio - YoYoYogi Portland for Vinyasa at the vineyard. An extremely well run event with an amazing staff and community. This was the perfect event to a perfect weekend and give myself a total mind and health reset.
Can't wait to visit again.
