You see, several years ago, I was going through a divorce. I had been married nine years and I thought there was no way I would ever end up divorced. Come to find out, my spouse was unhappy in our relationship and had only stayed with me during the end because of how much money I started making! (Funny how things change when you start making money). Anyway, I came to find out that her "so-called CrossFit trainer" was more than a CrossFit trainer. I ended up filing for divorce.
After ten months of being dragged through the divorce process, I decided that a fresh start would be healthy. Therefore, I decided to move to a completely new city where I didn't know a soul: San Diego.
During this time, while living in a completely new town, I found myself faced with a new challenge——that is, figuring out the question of what I should do with my life! I was alone and sad. I desired purpose, and connection——but really I desired a spark to "light up" my intellectual life.
One day I decided to pack a book in my backpack and set off to the city library to spend the day reading. When I got to the library, I realized the book I packed turned out not to be a book, but a compilation of physical monthly newsletters. These newsletters were written by the best writer and marketer in the late 80s. The format of the letter was plain and simple. It contained black ink set on white paper, and it was written in size 14 Courier font (which is why I use this font).
