What is Adventure?

Dictionary.com defines it as both a noun and a verb.It's an exciting or very unusual experience, participation in exciting undertakings or enterprises, a bold, usually risky undertaking, a hazardous action of uncertain outcome.It's also to risk or hazard, to take the chance of or dare, or to venture.Those all sound very exciting.They also fit well in line with what we consider to be proper adventures. Most of us only look at adventure in the stereotypical way...Dangerous, risky, or…See More

Check me out in the Bod Pod! I look like a big bearded chicken.I first read about the Bod Pod device in Tim Ferriss' book 4 Hour Body. He praised it as one of the most accurate body fat measurement devices around. I'd done the caliper thing before, but always wanted to try the pod. When I found out that Coastal Carolina University, a local school, had one I immediately…See More

You’re too old, fat, ugly, skinny, bald, or whatever to make it.

That title is from a myth I busted in my book Breaking into Acting.It's really not true. As a matter of fact, you may succeed in what you want to do simply because you look different. I do.

Sorry it took a while to respond to your friend request.

Who wouldn't want to be a friend with a man who has a cool beard and has his personal berserker mode!

Look forward to being in the SIF Group with you.

Hi Dr. Dave (as I've heard you called), please call me William. It's a pleasure to connect with you and I will also say I enjoyed your guest blog post last week on Dan's website. I used to be one to follow the rules, but have come to realize that making positive and dramatic shifts in one's life requires your methodology - ie: breaking many rules!

Good luck on the weight loss. My day J-O-B has created a sedentary environment where I have added 20-25 #'s in the last 2 years. Definitely want to break that habit as well as the bad habit of being an employee. ;)

Cheers!

William

Aren't we both so lucky.  Life is always exciting.  

I love the imagery you used to describe yourself ... a human puzzle master. 

I look forward to being part of this amazing group.  Let me know if there are any ideas you would like feedback on.

I sat next to you at the Nov. seminar. I just joined this website and wondered what you have to say about it.I love the scripture you listed regarding all things done decently and in order. It hit home with me because I know all things are in perfect and devine order so I am still waiting. I am still searching for the work I love.

Hey David,
It was nice meeting you at the 212 Roundtable. Just perused your website.
You are a busy guy! I'll check back to keep up on your adventures. Merry Christmas.
