how to find peace in a big city

How to Find Peace in a Big City

August 10, 2015

As my summer in New York City starts to wind down, I’ve found myself spending a good amount of time reflecting on the experiences that I’ve had over the past two months. After spending three weeks studying child development in Denmark last June, I didn’t think anything could live up to last summer…until I got […]


Biochar Bob - Why I Sold My Stuff and Moved to the Jungle to Build Paradise

This is a guest post written by a featured Degenerate, Biochar Bob. To learn more about his story, read his interview here! A couple months ago I was asked the question: “Are humans a blessing or a curse to Earth?” My reaction was almost automatic: humans are clearly a curse to Earth. I was then […]

We We Need to Forget Lemonade

August 3, 2015

“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!” I grew up in a house where thankfully self-help books sat perched on a few shelves and countertops but never became an obsessive habit. My parents – my dad especially – advocated looking at the positive side of negative scenarios. My parents were not perfect however and like […]


how to fall in love on the subway

One of the many incredible people I was lucky enough to meet at the Do Cool Sh*t Bootcamp this past December was Max Stossel. Not only is he very accomplished in the business world – he got Mark Cuban to invest in a business he’s working on! – he is a very, very talented poet. During […]

The Things That Feel Most Personal

July 29, 2015

This summer, it seems like my friends and I have been going through a lot of different things. We’re each facing our own set of new challenges, successes, uncertainties, and excitements. Three of my closest friends came to visit me in the city last weekend and at the end of their visit, we all admitted […]


great modern paradox matthew kelly

“We know the things that make us happy; we just don’t do them.” These are the wise words of Matthew Kelly. This is the Great Modern Paradox. So simple yet made complex by us. So true yet we tell ourselves this is a lie. “I do the things that make me happy!” We say. Agreed, […]

The Authentic Life

July 17, 2015

This is a guest post by Dan Compas. Who am I? We’ve all asked ourselves this age-old question. We’ve all come up empty-handed at one moment or another (probably more often than not). Then there’s other moments – those “aha” moments – where we feel like we know. What I’m realizing this year as I journey […]


when you show up for God

FULL DISCLOSURE: This post is not for everyone. I’m going to be very upfront and start by saying that this is very personal and very vulnerable. It won’t reflect everyone’s views, and that’s okay. Quarter for Your Crisis was created as a space to share our deepest thoughts, challenges, fears, and joys; to empower others to […]

Why We Need to Ask the Hard Questions

July 9, 2015

So a funny thing happened this week. I got a bit overwhelmed with some big decisions that need to be made. Pete and I have been talking about things for a while – everything from where we want to live to the next steps with QFYC – and we finally sat down this week to start asking […]


dont forget to fill up your own cup

This month, the QFYC community is exploring what it means to recenter. The practice works differently for everyone, depending on what it takes to make you recharged and renewed, but for me, a large part of that comes from spending quality time with myself. The other day a friend of mine actually said to me, […]
