Most people in my position don’t start blogs. I’m in my forties. I’m a doctor. I’m a professor at a medical school. I do research on high-tech imaging. I consult at a medical software company. I’m a father of 6. I’m making good money.
So why start a blog?
The simplest answer is that I’ve discovered a pattern for success that works, and I want to share it. Of course, I haven’t really discovered it. It’s been around a long time, but most people don’t really understand it much less actually do it.
It’s not a secret. This is stuff hiding in plain sight.
What I’ll be sharing is not that hard, but you have to understand how things work. That can take a long time by yourself. There’s so much noise out there.
I’ve learned these patterns over time. I worked my way through a top university maintaining grades in a competitive business major, while also in pre-med. I did well in medical school while having two kids and my wife staying at home. As a resident, we lived as a family of 6 on $40K per year and still managed to save. I’m currently saving nearly 40% of what I earn. We drive older model cars that we paid for in cash. I’m on track to become financially independent. I’ve learned a lot about what works and what doesn’t.
Will Rogers said,
There are three kinds of men, ones that learn by reading, a few who learn by observation, and the rest of them have to pee on the electric fence and find out for themselves.
It’s not a bad thing to learn by experience, but it can be costly and risky. Costly because of opportunities missed and mistakes made. Risky because you may never actually experience the right lessons if you leave it to chance.
I have no illusions that I am the smartest guy around. But, I am good at seeing patterns, filtering out the noise, and getting to the point. My goal is to show you how a few basic principles and practices can transform your life and set you on a path toward health, wealth, and wisdom.
