About IanB

Here’s the Twitter version from a couple of years ago:

I think of myself as a personal and spiritual development student / teacher / writer. I’m a techno-geek, web-freak, artist, photographer, designer, creator. I’m blissed out, in love and happy as a…

Yep, think that still pretty much covers it!

But I should add that I’m also highly digital, mildly perfectionist (no, really, I’ve got it under control!) and obsessed with quality, clarity, truth, beauty and, of course,  authenticity. I know that life is meant to be a joyful adventure, and that it really can be when you start living it on your terms, and I want You to know the truth of that too.

About Authentic Overdrive

Mechanically speaking, for those of you too young to remember when this was a common term, an Overdrive is a mechanism that allows a vehicle to cruise at sustained speed with reduced engine RPM, leading to better fuel economy, lower noise, and lower wear. Pretty much all cars nowadays have overdrive, though we tend not to call it that now, it’s simply the highest gear, usually 5th or 6th.

So, a device that let’s us go further and get there faster with less noise and stress huh? And we just have to shift into it or, if we’re running an automatic, allow the shift into overdrive. Useful metaphor for life? I like to think so. The question, of course, is: Where’s the shift lever?!

I guess the question might also be: What powers this overdrive?

Authenticity, of course, of course! And Authenticity can be defined, among other things, as the degree to which one is true to one’s own personality, spirit, or character, despite external pressures.

So, to put it briefly, the more you live in alignment with your own true, authentic nature, the more you shift into overdrive. And in Authentic Overdrive you go further and faster with more ease and less stress.

Sound good?

Let’s Go!
