Welcome to This Curious Adventure

For the past 20+ years, I have tried to uncover life’s hidden rulebook – what works, what doesn’t and why – in order to figure out the best strategies and tactics to live a successful and fulfilling life.

This blog is filled with everything I’ve found, available for free to anyone who can use it.

The most important ideas are contained into 17 short pieces of advice that I wish someone had given me when I was starting out. 

If you want to follow along, you can receive new posts via email every few weeks by signing up here.

If you want to learn more about me, you can check out my LinkedIn page or my coaching and training work at drewsaur.com. As a personal project, I’ve also opened my calendar to anyone who wants to chat. You can schedule some time at timewithdrew.com.

Happy adventuring!
