I recently turned 40. I am about to have my first kid. I wrote a book. Life is changing fast and these last couple of years have changed how I look at the world. I want to share my thoughts on that, and many other topics. I will discuss life, news, sports, writing, fatherhood, career, and much more. I am a Generalist. I find meaning in the seemingly mundane.

    Looking at Forty: A Most Meaningful Year, "Be There"

    Looking at Forty: A Most Meaningful Year, "Be There"

    My book, "Looking at Forty", is out. See houstonbailey.com for details. Instead of an audiobook, I am releasing chapters here on the podcast.

    This chapter is called "April 14 / Be There". It is about how I learned a life lesson from merely sitting and listening.

    Enjoy!

    Looking at Forty: A Most Meaningful Year, "My Birthday"

    Looking at Forty: A Most Meaningful Year, "My Birthday"

    My 1st book, "Looking at Forty", is out (or will be soon by the time you hear this). I went back and forth on doing an audiobook version, but decided to read/release chapters on the podcast. This will take longer to get the whole book out, but will be fun. I am not sure if I am an awkward reader of my own work, but we shall see.

    Today is the first chapter- "April 12 / My Birthday".

    Enjoy!

    Chasing a Dream

    Chasing a Dream

    This episode is a little different. But, I suppose most are. I borrow some audio from The Comprehensivists Podcast- a show I do with my main man Josh. In this episode, he interviews me about my goal of publishing my first book. This was fun, and I appreciate Josh's questions.

    Also- that book will be out shortly. It is titled "Looking at Forty: a Most Meaningful Year". Stand by for details on release.

    Enjoy!

    Winging It: What is Your Mission?

    Winging It: What is Your Mission?

    Had the urge to record today, so I winged it. I, for whatever reason, miss being on Active Duty in the US military. Perhaps it was because I had a clear mission? What's your current mission?

    A Conversation with a Great Friend

    A Conversation with a Great Friend

    This episode is a little different than the usual. I welcome my great, long time friend on for an interview. I pepper Dan Isaacson with around 75 questions, and it was fun. I got to know him a little better, even though I have known him for around 25 years. This was fun, I hope you enjoy, and thank you to Dan for being gracious with his time.

    Also, just 1-2 technical glitches here, but that comes with the distance and the weather. They do not impact the conversation (or podcast) at all.

    Discussing the HOA- Now THIS is Midlife

    There is a local debate about the HOA during the pandemic. Should they reimburse some fees? Should we be happy with what they are still doing for us? The argument rages! Now this, this is midlife. Enjoy!
