What’s the Point?
Road to Epic is a project dedicated to helping people live the life they really want to live while chronicling our own journey to live the life we really want to live.
We think that a person shouldn’t measure their life by the accumulation of things, but rather by the accumulation of experiences. We also think that everyone has the potential to lead a life they consider Epic – we want to help you do it.
Our guiding motto is that ordinary sucks. Live your own life, not someone else’s.
What Will I Find Here?
Every week we share an article we’ve written on personal development, creativity, time management, efficiency and any other topics we find related to building an Epic life.
We’re still walking this road ourselves, so you can also expect to find articles on things we’re working on to make our own lives a little more epic including fitness, language learning and, once we get to it, travel.
You’ll also find a number of experiments and challenges we’ve subjected ourselves to so you can learn from our successes and our failures – without worrying about doing all the failing.
If you’re interested in following along you can get updates via e-mail, subscribe via RSS, check out our Facebook page, follow us on Twitter, circle Adam and Caroline on Google+, divine our post content using tea leaves or, you know, just check in now and again.
Who Are You People?
We’re Caroline and Adam Wik. The two of us met in college through the grocery store we both worked at (romantic, right?). It didn’t take long for us to fall in love and we quickly discovered a shared passion for living a life by our own rules and a pervasive hatred of all things conventional and conformist.
Through the remainder of our college years we were inseparable – dazzled all the while by future visions of entrepreneurship and world travel inspired by heroes like Tim Ferriss and Chris Guillebeau. As soon as we graduated we got married, bought a house and settled down into our jobs.
Yes, in what I can only describe as temporary insanity we immediately locked ourselves into a position that was the exact opposite of our dreams. Having realized how stupid that was and how much we hated that life, you now find us back on the road we had dreamt of being on in college, the road to living the life we want to live, the road to…
No, that’s too cheesy. I’m not going to finish that sentence, you get the idea.
Adam is a goofy, overly optimistic linguistics nerd who loves parkour, martial arts, video games and anything involving the outdoors. He also writes fiction, which you can find on his Amazon author page. You can find him on Twitter @AdamWik09.
Caroline is a huge geek who loves applying science and data to cooking, fitness and personal development. You can find her on Twitter @CarolineWik
We also have an adorably cute dog named Bailey who may one day rule the world.
