Allan Mishra

Dr. Mishra has dedicated his life to helping people thrive, and I love the lessons he shared today.

First, by remembering that the blue handled shovel is coming for all of us, we can hopefully make better use of our time, and that includes remembering everything that is right in our lives and also looking for those 1000 daily seconds we may spend doing things that don’t help us thrive. 

Second, Dr Mishra was lauded for his math, but laughed at for his English, so he decided to do something about it. Are there weaknesses in our own lives that we can confront with the same energy and commitment that Dr Mishra channels, as he’s, written every single day for 5 straight years?

And finally, what is our own peak purpose? Much like love, we’ll know it when we find it, whether that’s teaching about vitality to just 7 people at a time or sharing simple, practical, underappreciated ideas with anyone who will listen.

I hope we can all thrive, and what better way to do so, than by following Dr Mishras’ advice. It’s a simple idea, please take it seriously.
