There are people out there who seem to have it figured out in life, who know what they want and how to go about getting it from the start.

My name is Nick and I am not one of those people. But over the years I’ve made a practice of studying and reflecting on what it means to live well, across the full spectrum of Maslow’s hierarchy, from the nuts and bolts of day-to-day survival to abstract philosophizing on the meaning of it all. If I had to describe my thinking at its best, I’d call it slow but deep.

This website is an attempt to document and share some of my explorations in the hopes that they might be useful to you too. Hope you enjoy!
