When you do this, you engage a dormant area of your mind that may have been switched off over the years or never turned on. These experiences are created to offer profound and lasting changes in your life.

What if you could have saved 10 years of your life by simply being asked one question? Would this have accelerated your life and could it accelerate the lives of future generations?
Do you love what you do Dad? The words hit me like a ton of bricks.
I had been telling my kids to follow their passion for years until the day my daughter asked me this question. That moment I realized I was not and we can not continue to lead our children by telling them how to live their lives. We need to lead by example. It was no longer about me.
December 2010 my family and I went away on a cruise to the Caribbean and we wound up getting stuck for an extra week in Miami due to an insane snow storm up in Jersey.
So what do I do? With a sketchy internet connection and as a new year’s resolution I committed to launching Zerkers. Five days straight I worked in the hotel room till 2 or 3 am. My wife was going to kill me, but I was determined, driven and committed to making a change.
We got home and I continued to work full force. Honestly, back then I could not remember the last time I went to bed before 1 am.
Until that point, I had been looking through a very small hole for the answers I needed to take things to an all new level. I learned a very valuable lesson on this trip.
Over the next 365 days after writing my own obituary I began to accomplish more big life goals than I had in the last 10 years of my life. The reality of what is possible hit me when I was on a plane heading to California to get mentored by my childhood surfing hero who at the peak of his career was the #1 ranked surfer in the world. Brad surfs 60+foot waves and taught me how to overcome fear.
Each Adventure Challenge I took was teaching me lessons that helped me to achieve more while impacting my life and the lives around me in exponential and positive ways.
