Sample Blog Page Title

The essence of my philosophy is this:

  1. You don’t have to live your life the way other people expect
  2. You can do good things for yourself and help other people at the same time
  3. If you don’t decide for yourself what you want to get out of life, someone else will end up deciding for you
  4. There is usually more than one way to accomplish something

In short, I’m interested in the convergence between highly personal goals and service to others.
