My name is Matt, and I’m an enthusiast. Yes, I enjoy many, many things, because I know this life is short and every day it goes by more quickly. I cook every day, workout most days, do yoga every night, surf, own an Android phone, enjoy designing and data, drive a 2007 Pontiac Vibe, live in a modest apartment, and overall want to help others. I always, always think of new ideas. These ideas range from simple inventions to entire organizations, but the goal always is to help people. I was inspired to write this book when one day I decided the root of most of the problems in our society was ourselves. I looked at the world around me and saw a beautiful earth riddled with vulgar and apathetic human interaction. It’s as if we no longer care about each other nor our home. So I wrote this book to generate buzz about what we can do as a society to help each other live wonderful, fulfilling lives in a great environment. With the internet and our tendency for super-connection, now may be our best shot to change some things. We live in a fantastic place, but I don’t want my future kids to curse at three years old, turn away from people who need their help, nor see the devastation of our planet. I want all of us to be Running On Full.
