More Than Adventure encourages people to fill their lives with adventure but also remember the best parts of life aren’t what we do for ourselves but the contribution we make to others. How we influence others. The legacy we leave. The people we help along the way.
I’m Kurt Swann and thanks for stopping by.
Does this sound like you?
You’re amazed by all that life has to offer. Travel, mountain climbing, snowboarding, skydiving, or flying are all great adventures and you could easily think of many more to add to the list.
You like new and exciting experiences but also find satisfaction in helping others.
You encourage others to find the adventure in their own lives.
You look for ideas about how you can
– live more adventures
– learn more
– contribute more
My philosophy of life
Experiences are better than possessions.
A life filled with adventure is great. But a life of adventure and helping others is even better.
If there’s something you want to do, then get started.
Yesterday is the best time to start. If not yesterday, then today. But start.
I grew up on a farm and after college lived in Chicago and St. Louis. California is now home. Previous occupations? FBI Agent, pilot, CPA. Now I write and perform comedy while leaving time to travel, and seek out opportunities for adventure, learning, and contribution.
I think it’s important to try new things because you never know what you could discover. A new experience might lead you in a direction you never imagined. For example, when I was 10 years old I took a ride in a small plane and that one experience stayed with me. Since then I’ve learned to fly single and multi-engine planes, seaplanes, and helicopters.
My interest in aviation led me to skydiving too. For a while, I flew a jump-plane for skydivers and later became a skydiver. I’ve even made jumps from 30,000 feet where the outside air temperature was minus 40 degrees.
The best lesson I learned from a plane ride at the age of 10? The world is full of things to do and learn. After I grew up, I learned an even more important lesson. Life is better when you help others along the way.
Why am I writing here?
To meet others with similar values so we can encourage each other to learn more and do more.
To help others along the way.
