On December 13th of 2010, I married Lisah.

On December 13, 2010, Lisah and I got married.

We exchanged vows on a beach in a non-reli­gious cere­mony in Antigua, West Indies. The rain poured all night, but a rain­bow greeted us out­side our bun­ga­low in the morn­ing, and the Caribbean weath­er smiled at us for the rest of the day.

What a day!

Here we go:


We had a magic­al day, and Lisah and I could­n’t be hap­pi­er. We’ll stay at the Cocobay Resort for a few weeks before head­ing off to spend a few days at the Ladera Resort on St Lucia. After that, we cel­eb­rate Christmas and New Year’s back in our New York apartment.

The dress was one of a kind and made out of 18,5 metres of silk. Still, we jumped into the ocean with our wed­ding clothes later in the evening!

There were a few seconds of drama:

There was a mal­func­tion with Lisah’s wed­ding dress dur­ing the cere­mony as one of her shoulder straps snapped, but as luck would have it, I just happened to carry a bobby pin in my pocket. 

That had to be my defin­it­ive McGyver moment, surely.

For our fam­ily and friends — thank you so much for your best wishes, and we’ll see you all in January.

The Epic Year Approach

We all exper­i­ence major life events. Sometimes, they occur one after anoth­er, some­times they’re far apart. It could be fin­ish­ing or start­ing an edu­ca­tion, relo­cat­ing, mar­ry­ing someone, mak­ing a cru­cial career move, start­ing a busi­ness, hav­ing a child, etc.

What such events typ­ic­ally have in com­mon is that they tend to pro­pel the pro­gres­sion of your life forward.

A few years stand out, push­ing my per­son­al devel­op­ment for­ward expo­nen­tially. What did those years have in com­mon? They con­tained four (or more) life events.

I call them Epic Years:

Epic Year = exper­i­en­cing four (or more) major life events with­in one year.

To accel­er­ate per­son­al growth, exam­ine the upcom­ing year. How many life events lie in your path? Fewer than four? Take action to get that num­ber to (at least) four!
