Let's go on an adventure

Before I dive in, thank you for visiting this tiny corner of the web. I'm Tim Haskins, your humble host, and am excited to share in this grand(ish) adventure / experiment with you.

I have several ambitions for this site, but primarily it's a place to share my interests, personal learnings, and inspiration  — all with the hopes of sharing more of who I am with you.

Why would I want to do that? Great question. For many years, maybe my whole life, I've struggled with being vulnerable. We could go into why, but we'd need a couch and you'd need a psychology degree — or two.  Long story short at the beginning of 2014, I chose to live different, more vulnerable, and more authentic life.

Saying so was easy(ish), but I realized I had to demonstrate it if I was going to experience it more fully.

Sure it took me a whole year to get to this point, but this site is a public demonstration of that choice and I'm eager to continue this into 2015 and beyond. Plus, I believe in doing what you dream and choosing to live a life where I've shared all I could — just like this quote elegantly puts it:

The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry our their dream.
