DTD #89: The Value in Discovering What You Don’t Want with Writer Hudson Rennie

Hudson Rennie is a full-time writer, a digital creator and an all-around creative human being. Deciding to forgo college, he worked through his twenties at a furniture store, accumulating management experience and a steady paycheck. He was checking the boxes. He looked successful on paper. But something was missing.

Adventure was calling, and thankfully, Hudson was bold enough to answer. He quit his job, sold his condo, and spent the next two years exploring what he wanted out of life. His journey took him around the world to both beautiful possibilities and harsh realities.

He moved to Thailand to pursue a career as a fighter in Muy-Thai, a long-time dream of his; yet he realized that wasn’t his destiny, either. But one thing led to the next. He had to face the world, hit rock bottom, and realize what he wasn’t, to get to where he is today.

In addition to Hudson’s story, we also discuss:

– Why we often need to taste all the food at the buffet of life

– Hudson’s strategy for combatting negativity bias

– The opposite of the “I’ll be happy when” mindset

And much more.
