The future of this newsletter is in your hands

Hey Reader,

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving here in the U.S.

Otherwise, I hope you enjoyed your ordinary November Thursday last week.

On May 25, I began publishing this newsletter weekly, making a drastic shift from tools-for-thought and journaling specific content.

Instead, I’ve written about the intersection between behavior science and identity design.

Based on the feedback I’m receiving, the specific action steps at the end of each newsletter have made a difference in the lives of my readers.

As I start mapping out the first 12 weeks of 2023, it’s essential that what I write about is a reflection of how I can help you.

That’s why I’m engaging in a series of listening sessions with subscribers, Twitter followers, and customers like you.

Reader Feedback (so far)

About the friction that keeps us from becoming the person we want to become:

We must get out of our own way before we get anything else out of our way.

New Series Next Week!

I’m super excited about our December series.

R.J. will share a simple productivity system you can implement immediately.

I will give you tools for getting out of your own way so that when you plan the first 90 days of 2023, you’re more likely to take action on those plans.

We’re also hosting a workshop to close our series.

No need to snag a seat before you’ve seen what you’ll be learning in the newsletter series.
