And which is more…


I am the FourHourTeacher. Striving to live an optimised life where every minute is filled with sixty second worth of distance run.

I measure myself by my growth, presence and influence and this is my platform.


The table below includes the full list of posts from my project to share my thoughts and practices to live an optimal life. I’ve much else to learn but something I have learned is that writing to share my thoughts is great for clarity, organisation and advancing my mission to live an influential, present and improving life.
