In my 20’s, I did not live in one place more than 1 year. I lived on couches for a year and did not rent my first apartment until I was 30.
Yes, I did live in my Aunt’s basement for a year and my Mom’s house for a year post-college. Thanks Mom and Rhonda!
You could say I liked changing things up and experiencing new things all the time.
As I recently turned 34 (that’s ancient in internet age), it dawned on me that I’ve lived in the same place for the past 5 years.
Heck, I’m writing this from the same table.
Novelty sparks some magical thing in our brain but it eventually fades. We go back to our baseline. They even have a term for it called the hedonistic treadmill!
One night I looked at all the Fortune 500 companies and it really dawned on me that NO major creation happens in a short period of time. To truly accomplish major things, it takes a long time and consistency is the answer to make that a reality.
“Consistency…Don’t get bored with it.” [click to tweet]
Mike Tyson - Undisputed Truth - We’ve all watched a vid or read a bit about Mike Tyson but hearing the behind the scenes was insane. What does it take to be the best in the world and what happens when you get there? That’s his story.
Meru - Cool documentary about climbers tackling a mountain that’s never been done before.
Bad ass clothing:
I wear Myles Apparel shorts almost every single day. The guys over there hooked us up with some free shorts. Leave a comment with where you want to go in the world and we’ll pick a few people to get some amazing shorts!
Noah “tacos” Kagan
I would love to go back to Europe!
Iceland sounds good
Cambodia for mission work with Caring for Cambodia (Austin Based). I'd take my kids to offer them some perspective.
Great article.......again! I'm in for the long game.
Place I want to go: Japan ??
Thailand needs to be next. Let's go together. ?
I wish I had some consistency in my life.
Isn't Mike Tyson a convicted rapist? Not sure I'd recommend him as a role model!
Antartica, strangely is calling me. I think it’s because so few have traveled there and the peace and quiet would be on a whole new level.
Somewhere close to nature and out of city life. Like may be mauritius or maldives.
Never sticked with consistency yet. Now, also no need to.
I want someone else to buy me a plant ticket to their favorite spot.
I heard you on the Tony Robins podcast and now I have "found" you. I am working in a 10-year old tech start up as their first marketing person. Wow. Love me some marketing. You are interesting and I am reading you.
My wife and I would like to take our little one to Iceland and Japan.
Australia mate. I've never been there, and it sounds awesome.
Being consistently inconsistent can get boring as well too. 🙂
So let's switch it up!
Anywhere in wine country, Argentina!
Manila! Has anyone received free shorts yet? Haha.
My son got some Balcones from a friend. I got to try it and that shit is goooood! I could consistently drink the stuff. Good thing for my liver I don't live anywhere near Texas. Life is change which makes consistence unnatural, adaptation and the ability to adapt is survival and spice. "Improvise, adapt, overcome." - Marine Corp slogan
I want to go to Auckland..!!!! I have heard that it is heaven on earth...!! God knows which heaven we would be going into post death... haha...
Cycling the Black Forest in Germany...soon, this May/June. : ) I move often too because I am curious like you.
I'd like to visit my sister in Australia.. all the way from Toronto, Canada. She has a first baby due in 2 weeks.
I have got your same problem Noah, let's build a Fortune 500 company together so ! (Tried to not long time ago)
I'm headed to London and Paris next week! Next up high on my list are Thailand, India, Italy, and Greece.
I just moved from rainy Portland to the sunny beach in California, and some fresh shorts would do my wardrobe some good!
Oops misunderstood the question. Place not goal. Sorry. Niigata, Japan, my friends winery in Spain, and Dharmsala India
I definitely want to leave, if not the world, a good number of lives, better through my work of balancing the spiritual and the secular in a useful and practical way. Those born Jewish are blessed if their lives were influenced by men like the ones portrayed in the books My Grandfathers Blessings by Dr. Rachel Naomi Remen and Have a Little Faith by Mitch Albom. The loving and yet practical consistency of such men grew their wisdom and ability to share it. For a lot of us without such a strong tradition I hope to take the woo woo out of the wonder to enrich their life experience.
Thanks, Noah! And thanks, Myles Apparel! I look forward to the showing off my new shorts!
My next big destination is Tokyo, so much looking forward to it!
Tbilisi - Georgia!
Rio in Brazil!
Hey Noah! thanks for the extra dose of motivation, you don't know how much i've needed it this week (i've even opened a thread about motivation hacks on lean-startup fb group). Having an stable HQ for a longer (than usual) time period it can be very convenient for long term goals, but the spirit has to be open for quick getaways and not-too-much planned adventures... at least that's what i've learned..
For my next quick-crazy adventure, i would visit THE DRIEST DESERT ON EARTH (San Pedro de Atacama, Chile)... so i would love to have the chance to try out these shorts! (of course, will sent the photos!)
I am planning to go to Barcelona, Spain with my parents and sister. We will be going on many adventures!! What would be the best pair of shorts to get when going on excursions?!
i want to go to Normandy Beach and follow the path that the 101st Airborne took a la "Band of Brothers"......
To the Titan of Tacos:
Loving life well takes time; and after flying through my bachelors in a brief 14 years its off to Dominica for med school 🙂
Let me know if i'll have some shorts to wear in my carribean clinic!
I'd like to visit and take a picture at sunrise and sunset in each and every one of our glorious 50 states.
I want to simply be inspired, then be able to act on it. That's all I want in my life! I was most recently inspired to go to Lugano, Switzerland.
So so many places, but if I had to pick the next one, probably China to experience the culture and Silicon Valley to see what it's like
I really want to visit South Africa.
I want to go to places that help people realise that there is more to the world than the confines of the reality in which they live.
Great to connect again Noah! Definitely Sweden for me.
Consistency is boring and monotonous. I am planning to visit some cool place and eastern Europe this year.
I want to travel the ENTIRE world and live out of a backpack. Experience new things and meet great people. I want to become self made and leave a legacy for me, my family and future family. I'd rather DIE than settle for anything less.
Would love to go to Japan - the whole culture and food intrigues me
Was JUST talking about these shorts to a friend today; very random.
Im currently vagabonding in New Zealand for 4 weeks (would love them now!) and would use them for my trip to Israel!
I want to visit the Grand Canyon someday.
Cuba or North Korea for the thrill and the story
I want to own a successful business that will give flexibility to my schedule.
