“I don’t chase happiness; I choose what’s worth struggling for.”
– Matt Poyner
Many of us may find ourselves occasionally putting off important things in life because we are “too busy.” Matt Poyner is a backcountry outdoorsman, dad, artist, carpenter, ER doctor, graphic designer, husband, and brewer, among other things (and not necessarily in that order.) You could say he leads a busy life, but he might call it a life of fulfillment.
In our discussion, we have a few laughs and dig into:
- What makes being an emergency room doctor the perfect vocation for a person of varied interests.
- How physical struggle and exertion has contributed to human evolution
- His philosophy on parenting
- Matt’s four elements of a fulfilled life.
