About the Blog

What is the ideal way to live?

This blog is a series of philosophical ramblings I use to answer this question. I’ve written close to 900 articles, and a few free ebooks and guides exploring what it means to get more from life.

The theme of posts ranges from productivity to learning to the meaning of life. Typically my emphasis is on readers in their twenties, since that represents my vantage point, but the site enjoys readers from teenagers to retirees.

My purpose in writing isn’t to assert that my view is always correct (although I’m an opinionated guy), but rather to suggest a viewpoint, encourage discussion and move a few steps closer to answering that question.

In addition to this blog, is also a business, where I sell information products and services. is ad-free and entirely supported by these extras. However, even if you never buy anything from me, I’ll still be happy to have had the chance to share my ideas with you.

About Scott Young

I started writing this blog just before my 18th birthday, so in many ways, it has mirrored my own life as an adult.

The blog started when I was very interested in behavior change, and you can see many articles about this obsession. Later I left for university and began considering socializing and productivity as topics to explore. Learning became an important topic, and eventually created the foundation for a full-time business I could run, selling courses to learners about the methods I’d uncovered.

Finally, as I left school, the idea of continued self-mastery and career development interested me. Recently I completed a year-long quest in self-education.

Beyond writing, entrepreneurship and life philosophy, my interests include programming, travel, cooking and teaching myself anything I can.
