“Frankly, I intended just to work myself into oblivion, get old and die.”

“I took a little reckoning.”

“Everybody has the capacity to dream up and believe anything he wants to  . . .  and you believe it because you choose to.”

“I’m just trying to get to the end of my life without becoming an a*hole again.”

John Kitchin, 69
“Slomo”
from the documentary short  “Slomo”
by Josh Izenberg

John Kitchin is a retired doctor credentialed in both neurology and psychology. He’s also pretty intelligent when it comes to physics, meditation, and the answer to the question “how not to get lost.”

Raising children? Paying off student loans? Taking care of a parent with Alzheimer’s disease? Can’t simplify to the degree Mr. Kitchin has? That’s not the point. What opportunities do you have to “stop.” To reintroduce yourself to you? Starting from where you are today. What can you do right now?

What you stop doing is just as important as the things you start doing.”  ~Danielle LaPorte
