Rewrite the Rules

It’s time to rewrite the rules we live by.

You don’t have to live how everyone else expects you to, or according to any limits society places on you or you place on yourself.

You don’t have to do work you don’t enjoy.

You don’t have to play it safe.

You don’t have to settle.

You can be happier, healthier and more alive.

You can learn new things and change old habits.

You can consume less and live more.

You can be the incredible version of yourself waiting inside.

You can support yourself through your creativity.

You can trade your commute for a morning walk in the sand.

You can travel or live anywhere in the world.

You can make breakthroughs you didn’t know were possible.

YOU can do this.

That’s what this site is all about.

I want to be at the top of your reading list. Join me on this journey to rewrite the rules and unlock more possibilities in life.

A little more about this project...

If you're new here, here's a little about me and this site. I'm Corbett Barr, and I'm an independent writer and entrepreneur. I started and maintain a few sites online including Think Traffic and Expert Enough.

I gave up my high-paying but mind-numbingly-boring corporate career back in 2006 because I wanted to find out if there could be more to life than a few weeks of vacation a year and a 401k.

In 2009, my wife and I set off on a six-month-long sabbatical / road trip throughout Mexico. That trip changed my life, partly because I started this blog, and partly because we finally realized what was really important in life to us and found the courage to pursue those dreams without holding back.

Today we spend six months in San Francisco each year, winters in Mexico and summers traveling to other places like Europe. I work wherever there is an Internet connection and inspiration.

Every day I get to do something incredible: I support myself entirely by helping awesome people through the content I publish. I’m independent, self-reliant and completely responsible for my own fate.

This site is about rewriting the rules and living life as an experiment. Every week I write about doing meaningful work, living a fun and adventurous life, and becoming the best version of yourself possible.

If this sounds interesting to you, I’d love you to join us.
