I have multiple passions that are held together by pure love of life. I want to help other people love life. I want to be outside as much as possible, and I want to live sustainably.
The 40 Day Dopamine Fast is my first book. I wrote it while I was living in Cambodia for a year and was struggling with enjoying alcohol and cigarettes a little too much. When I came up with the idea for a Dopamine Fast I had no idea what it would turn into. But, it only took a few days with out all the pleasures of modern life for me to realize that I was in for a trip. It was amazing and I came out loving life even more!
I think I found yet another passion (to add to canoeing, skiing, travelling, reading, motorbikes, live music, and family) in trying to help people find purpose in their lives. However, that does not mean that I will be abandoning my passion for sustainable business, which is what I predominantly wrote about before this little side project took over my life. My next book is going to be about why there is a left and a right in politics.
Hope everyone enjoys my book(s) and thanks for stopping by to check out my profile!
How do you approach cover design?
Honestly I usually just start browsing my library of photos until something jumps out at me. Then I just start moving things around on illustrator and photoshop until I think something looks good. I rarely have a mental picture of what I want to accomplish. I think that is what the real artists do!
What are your five favorite books, and why?
The Tao Te Ching, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Fabric of the Cosmos (Brian Green)(beginners guide to quantum physics, general relativity, and string theory, Siddartha (Herman Hesse), The Alchemist - because between these 5 books you can know everything about life!
Refined sugar, processed fats, alcohol, TV (including video games), caffeine, tobacco, pornography and social media all get the chop in Greg Kamphuis' ruthless effort to hunt down the source of motivation and meaning.
