TEDx Talk: Reaching your personal escape velocity

We must make a fundamental change to how we view ourselves—not as the product of our past, but for the potential of our future. Watch Rusty Lindquist use his personal story to introduce a foundational aspect of Escape Velocity at TEDx.

Stress: A means of propulsion in life

What you need to know to find meaning in life and work

It amazes me how many people I talk to, even those well into advanced, seemingly rewarding careers, are actually not happy. Is this you? Have you found yourself thinking recently about how much you’d rather be doing something else? Do you know someone who is currently going through this?

Service Ride Control

In life, rough patches just happen, and you can’t control when they hit, how hard they hit, or how long they last. Appreciating their inevitability helps you take them in stride.

My new book: Escape Velocity

These are the things from which we try to escape. And the principles and practices which allow us to do just that is what I call “Escape Velocity.” Escape Velocity, the title of my new book, describes how a person can generate the momentum necessary to escape their limitations and realize their true potential.
