Is it time to quit?

Before Cheryl Strayed embarked on her hike from the Mojave desert in California to the bridge of the gods in Oregon, she set an intention. She made a promise to herself that she wouldn't quit unless she was physically injured. This experience was later documented in her book Wild. If you're interested, it's worth checking out.

How to setup a fun and worthwhile collaboration

I've had some of the most enjoyable times collaborating with others. I started a show in 2017 with my friends called Beware of the Leopard. Then in 2019, I co-founded an improv group called OK Stop. One of my co-founders invited me to do some voice work for an animation about a sentient, depressed tube of toothpaste. I also voiced a sea shanty about Jackie Weaver with my podcast friends. During the pandemic, I recorded a version of Don't Stop Believin’ with my family.
