Adult relationships are likely the single greatest source of long-term fulfillment and wellbeing.
Yet they are harder to maintain. It is even harder to start and grow.
I’ve noticed it even with my childhood friends whenever I visit Florida.
Maybe we grab dinner or lunch or talk for a couple of hours, but then it’s back to their routines.
The people that make time for you—they are rare—are worth their weight in gold.
One reason I want to build a 100-acre community is to change this. Change it for myself and others. For my kids.
We’ve lost so much of what makes us human, and we have the shit results of modernity to show for it.
99% of humans would live happier, healthier lives if they traded some of their work, entertainment, and distractions for time spent with loved ones.
Yet instead of going more in that direction, we’re going more in the opposite—more distraction, entertainment, things to do, opportunities to pursue, hustle to hustle.
Then we have inflation, which is a forcing function of isolation. It keeps us going out less, socializing less, and staying home more because it’s cheaper to do so!
