your next decision...


your decision.
your life.

You're stuck and you want something better. Therapy isn't working, religion goes so far, self-help books aren't cutting it, and your friends aren't helping.


You're in the right place.


In my early 20s, I was depressed, suicidal, and experiencing symptoms of PTSD. I struggled to stay in school. My social life was a roller coaster.

I reached out to people who cared about me. They couldn't help. 

I went to therapy. That didn't help.

I was prescribed a lot of meds. That definitely didn't help.

And then I discovered the power of making my own choices. The more I studied the science of decision making, the more equipped I became to tackle life's challenges. 

These days, my life is pretty good. I have a rewarding and successful career, a home I love, and friends to die for. I can honestly say I live a life of contentment.


Life is not always easy because that's how life is. We can't have it all figured out. But decision science gives us the power to make it so much better. 

There's a better way for you too. Let's find that way together. 

it's your life.

you decide.


learn it. live it.

“Metal” decisions… “Punk” decisions… you can make these every day no matter who you are, and they may be what you need to get unstuck. 

To realize your dreams, care a lot less about where you came from or who you feel you are and a lot more about making choices that get you where you want to be.

The thing about advice is that it’s rarely good, even when it sounds good, and even when you really want it.

If you desperately want to escape a bad situation but have no way out, you stop looking. You give in and accept other bad situations. You don’t fight. You don’t question. You just… take it.
