“In the face of overwhelming pressure to conform, how do we live a remarkable life in a conventional world?”
That was the question at the heart of the first ever World Domination Summit in Portland, Oregon, at which Kim and I were able to attend and present. Afterwards, we stayed and played for a few extra days with Lucy and our two best friends.
The conference itself, put on by Chris Guillebeau and his amazing team, was, as another attendee put it, a “heart attack of awesome.” Probably the best conference I’ve ever been to. There’s just nothing like being around 500 people who are intent on changing the world and have no regard for the rules that don’t exist. I’m still processing the life-changing lessons and ideas, and I have a feeling I will be for some time.
Some upcoming posts will be on this theme, and I’ll be sharing a series of some of the most mind-blowing things I learned in the Insider newsletter (so be sure you’re signed up!), but for now I thought it would be fun to share a few photos and highlights of our experience in the Pacific Northwest.
I spy a friend of mine in a Chicago Bears shirt behind Lucy! I’m sure a great time was had by all!
You came that close and didn’t even call me? Oh well. Glad you had fun! That looks amazing!
Yes we apparently upset a few people by not informing them of our presence…but it was very time-crucnhed as it was. It certainly won’t be our last time to the Pacific Northwest!
No worries…I’m not upset. It’s far enough away that I probably wouldn’t have been able to make it anyway. I can’t wait for you to visit Seattle!
Okay, so when I saw your photo of Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach the first thing I thought was “Holy Crap! Kim and Jason saw Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru’s hut on Tatooine!”
The double sunset was as breathtaking as you’d imagine!
