Do you feel dull, depressed, living life under a set of rules that don’t really exist? Are you annoyed by frivolity? Are you trapped in a state of ‘but-we’ve-always-done-it-that-way’? I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you might just have a raging case of Adultitis.
My guest today spends his time creating awareness around this very illness while helping adults (and tragically, some kids) escape the clutches of this terrible disease. Jason Kotecki is the chief creative guy at an organization called Escape Adulthood, whose mission is to annihilate Adultitis, by advocating a lifestyle based on the secrets of childhood while helping people to live better stories with less stress and more fun.
Jason and I talk about The Cure Adultitis Institute, how you can diagnose your own degree of adultitis, what happened in our lives to infect us with this disease, what could happen to you if you live undiagnosed, what exactly are these ‘rules that don’t exist’, what are the secrets of childhood, and how can we begin to combat adultitis in our lives.
This child-like perspective is inside all of us – just waiting to get out. Go ahead, have a Jell-O Cook-off, or bake an ugly cake – on purpose… you don’t know what you’re missing.
You’d probably benefit if you stop taking yourself so seriously, you’re stressing yourself out and sapping joy out of your life.
