In this conversation, Adam and Thane discuss relevant issues in this stage of life as Up & Comers. From the importance of prioritizing well, to the benefit and balance of introspection, to the process of change, to risk assessment and management, and much more.

This is a light-hearted discussion, but one that will stimulate much thought and introduce some new perspectives on issues we all face.


“Risk helps us see, with clarity, what reality is.”  – Thane Ringler

“I think it is the American plague – of constantly looking at ourselves.”  – Adam Setser

“Success is a short sprint, fueled by discipline, until habit takes over.”  – Tim Keller

“That’s my favorite part of habits and disciplines – is that it compounds into other areas, both positively and negatively.”  – Thane Ringler

“Travel creates that longing in you to get back home. If all you ever do is just stay home, you start to build a contempt for it. Familiarity breeds contempt.”  – Adam Setser
