Web Authors Who Inspire Me III

The minute a man ceases to grow, no matter what his years, that minute he begins to be old.
-William James

I am moving my weekly links post forward one day to Saturdays because it just seems to make more sense that way. Sundays are now being reserved for how-to posts, beginning tomorrow with a post about how to meditate effectively.

Here’s my list of posts within the past week that I found inspiring:

  • K. Stone at Life Learning Today wrote a great post at lifehack.org called Tapping into the Fountain of Youth. This was a great reminder to me of how an inspired attitude is similar to a youthful attitude. Observing children is a great way to get in touch with your spirit. As we grow older, many of us forget how to enjoy the moments in life and believe that taking on stress is a part of being an adult. Stress makes us old and bitter before our time. My very first post, Be Teachable – Avoid Growing Old and Stubborn, touches on this idea by discussing one important trait of youthfulness.
  • Steve Pavlina is one of the most popular and successful bloggers on the web, and with good reason. He is intelligent and an incredible communicator. I never cease to be amazed at his ability to discuss matters of the heart and spirit, which seem to be imprecise and unpredictable by nature, with mathematical precision through logical analogies that just make sense. His systematic approach to spiritual analysis has played a big part in helping return faith to my life. This week’s amazing post was Overcoming Jealousy. Even though jealousy is not much of an issue in my life, I found his perspective on how abundance relates to relationships helpful and hopeful.

About the author


I am Danny Kohn, writer and designer for this site and owner, software engineer and consultant for Inspirations Software Design. My three greatest passions in life are sharing time with my family, software design and sharing inspiration with others. I have the incredible privilege of being able to spend a significant amount of time every day doing each of those three things. I am a single father of Tristen, our 6 year old son. It has been such an incredible joy to watch him grow up and learn so much. Everything he does and says overwhelms me with adoration. We have a wonderful evening ritual of reading books together in a beanbag chair. Nearly every night, we have a laughing attack together. I smile and giggle constantly in his presence and feel truly inspired.
