Turning 30 and goals for 2019

I was born on December 30th, 1988. I was born extremely large, some may say plump at 10lb 11ounces. I grew up in Philadelphia, moved to New Jersey, went to school at Rutgers, worked full time and went to school full time. Graduated in 2012, quit my job in 2013. Started multiple failing businesses. Learned an F ton. Launched Penji in 2017. Grew to 35 employees in under a year. Took several steps backwards at time, but ultimately ended with at least one step forward.

So here we are. This is 30 everyone. You know, I’ve never been a big resolution type of guy, but 30 is a HUGE year. You can look at it in multiple ways, but what I see 30 as is opportunity.

I’d like the next 30 years of my life to life changing in multiple ways. If I am going to do great things in my life, I need to set the tone for not only the next year, but the next 30 years. It all starts today! 

This episode is an accountability episode where I will share what I want to accomplish in my 30th year and as I accomplish each one, I will add onto this episode and add all of the bonus episodes affiliated with each goal, within this master list. 

I thought in great detail about what I wanted my 30th year to be. I ended on the theme and key phrase of Seeking Discomfort.

If you’ve ever heard of a group of guys called Yes Theory, they are an incredible YouTube channel where they challenge the way life should be spent. Within reason of course, the idea is to say yes to life’s most challenging adventures. 

I’ll drop a comment in the show notes to get an idea of their videos, but let’s continue to expand on this two words. 

Seeking Discomfort allows you to get out of mediocrity and to pursue a life of love. Most people I know are winding down. They have either hit their peak or have been declining for the past few years. But what I like to think my life is always trending upward. It’s always moving up even if at times things plateau.

This year is going to be all about pushing my spirit, my mind, and my body to the absolute limit. Here are a few things that I’d like to accomplish in my 30th year on Earth.


  • January: Find that eating regime that works for me 
  • February: Try to set up meetings with 30 of the most influential people on the planet
  • March: Learn the piano every single day for a month
  • April: Study one foreign language every day for a whole month (Vietnamese)
  • May 6: Run Broad Street and Read a book every day
  • June: Fast for 3-5 days
  • July 13: Do a Spartan run that’s 10 miles
  • August 24: Do a triathlon
  • September 21: City to Shore
  • October: Mediation and yoga every day for a whole month
  • November: Run a marathon
  • December: Find ways to max out your weight reps
