This is my small contribution to making the world a little better.

For me, I want to view myself as a work of continuous improvement.

Part of that process involves reading quotes every day, considering them, and then writing a 100 word story that reflects the idea within the quote as I interpret it.

This process forces me to think better, be more inspirational for myself, and think deeper about the ideas that the quotes are about.

Be Positive

To see the possibilities by looking for them.

Be Inspired

Use the wisdom of others to inform my own brand of inspiration.

Be Aware

To continuously increase my awareness of myself and others.

Who is Rodney?

Just some guy who has lived in three countries, hates work, and home schools his kids.

Between 6 am and 8 am, I write my stories. I hate mornings, but it is the only time I have enough silence to process.

The plan is to create a basic income from this, and travel the world in a sailing boat… or van… or bicycle. I haven’t decided yet.

I am working toward changing the world in ways I can control.

And if enough people want to make the world a better place, then it will become a better place.

I can’t do this alone, so I hope this site is a spark for others.


I am a person who finds joy in inspiring others.

This site is a body of work designed to inspire you.

It is about asking the question of what would you do if you followed your dreams, if you stopped following the well-worn path, or if you started to ask questions about why you do things the way you do them.

For my part, this site is a project of passion for me. My dream is to inspire others through quotes and stories. And to make this my living. I imagine that I can turn this small site into a way of life, where the sparks that begin here ripple outward into the world.

This is my simple dream.

What is your one?
