How to Destroy Adultitis with Jason Kotecki

About Today’s Guest

Today’s guest is an artist, speaker, husband, father, self-proclaimed cereal aficionado and author of the book Penguins Can’t Fly and 39 Other Rules That Don’t Exist.  He has made it his mission in life to annihilate Adultitis by uncovering the secrets of childhood and sharing them with others.

In today’s episode our guest and I talk about:

  • What is Adultitis?
  • How do we escape it?
  • Rules that don’t exist
  • The dumbest “non-rules”

Some of the non-rules we discuss are,

  • Thou shalt not jump in puddles
  • Thou shalt act your age
  • Thou shalt color in the lines
  • Thou shalt brag about how busy thou art

Enjoy this interview with my new friend, Jason Kotecki.
