Call me Trim-tab

Metaphor for someone whose small action eventually leads to big, and often unpredictable results.

Do you find yourself searching beyond the horizon, being driven to explore the limit of the unknown world, taking on each day as a new challenge? Sometimes it feel as though the end has dropped off the horizon, others you feel you could take on world hunger.

20’s is for Learning | 30’s is for Building | 40’s is for Thriving

Focusing on where you would like to put your time and energy, this will help you to untangle your mind of those endless ideas and think logically preventing any draw backs.

“Watching something grow is good for morale: it helps you believe in life.”
 — Myron S. Kaufmann

Our 20’s development is significant and critical for our development, seeing as 80% of our lives most defining moments happen before 25 years of age, guess we need to take the bull by the horns sooner rather than later. The more we know about the world, the more limitations crowd in around us.

Us grabbing ‘the bull by the horns’

We have no control over our brains
- the information that sticks
- memories that store
- snippets randomly connected
- facts and stories which we hang on to

As we get older and gain more experience it is frustrating why they are so important to you. There aren’t ever really those “Eureka!” moments, they’re more like “huh, that’s weird”. We are all explorers, but those people who find discovery work that little harder.

Hey, so where would you put your time and energy?
Supposedly the future life goals for most ‘Millennials’ (also known as the Millennial Generation, born between early 1980s - 2000) is to either be rich and/or famous. Even though some may not agree with this statement, us being one of them, it is true that us ‘Millennials’ have bloody high expectations and aim to reach for the moon instead of settling for the stars.

‘Hindsight’ will become something of the past, it’s so not 2020

At CBTHBN, we choose to live by feats not fame, waking each day on a new challenge or voyage of modern exploration. Search beyond the horizon in our age of discovery, it is your life and you can choose how to live it.

We do not live our lives to just make money and eat, we make money and eat to enjoy life. Be a doer not a spectator or observer. Curiosity is important to keep as an adult, it helps drive what we do. Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

“Being comfortable is one thing, but staying inside your comfort zone is a disaster. It’s really easy to do, especially if you’re traveling by yourself. Find a few nice people, find a nice room, do some touristy things, then go home and say you’ve seen whatever it is you saw. But doing things that make you uncomfortable generally leads to something much better. Whether you succeed or fail, it’ll always lead to either an experience that might change the direction of your life or, at the very least, a way better story to tell when you get home.” 
— Alexander Haro, The Inertia

Life is too big to be seen from one perspective.

If you were to invest in your future best self, what would you focus on changing right now?
