My Goal in Life? To be More Interesting than YOU

One of my goals in life and something that I have focused intently on the past few years is to be the most interesting person that I can be.  When I’ve gone out and met new people including women at bars and clubs I have been pretty sure that they will not outdo me in this respect.

Oh you’ve traveled?  I’ve been to over 30 countries.

You did that daredevil thing at the amusement park?  I’ve gone skydiving, bungee jumping, hang gliding, etc.

You speak 3 languages? I speak 10.

You took some karate classes?  I’ve been training in several martial arts for over 20 years.

Tattoos?  Yeah I have two.

Wanna talk science, politics, philosophy, economics, etc?  I can do that too.

Etc Etc Etc….

I’m not writing this for the purpose of boasting or looking to sound cool.  I am writing this because I have spent many years working very hard at becoming an interesting human being.

It’s been my passion in life; to constantly grow in as many ways as possible and to become the best person that I can be.

I don’t watch too much television.  I typically have one hour long show a week that I like to watch and I usually catch up with it online. (Currently I like The Walking Dead, Homeland, House of Cards, and Game of Thrones). Hey there is some pretty good entertainment out there with great writing and production, but it takes a lot for me to add to the tiny bit that I do watch.

I’d rather read a book, go to the gym, make sure I have some sort of vacation or adventure planned, meditate, organize my life, make money, experience nature, go out an interact with other people, etc.

If I do meet someone that is more interesting than me in anyway it is a rare and exciting experience.  I look to learn from them as much as I can.  What do they do that’s different from me?  What habits to they have?  When I meet people like this I am a sponge.  I want to absorb their strengths and powers like in a Sci-Fi film.  Surely when we talk they learn from me too and this is a beautiful thing.  Both people walk away a little smarter and more interesting.

As with anything in life being more interesting needs to be a passion.  Sure some people have jobs that inherently put them in interesting situations like some military people or that Anthony Bourdain guy that travels the world experiencing different foods and cultures.  For the average person though they need to make a concerted effort to become more interesting.  Otherwise they run the risk of being the average Joe who never travels very far from home, watches five hours of television a day, and whose greatest passion is whatever sports game is playing that evening.

Don’t get me wrong, we need average Joes to make those rare few of us that are interesting shine that much brighter in comparison.

What are you doing today, this week, this month to become more interesting?

I guarantee you that I myself am doing a ton.

All the best,
