ACL 043: Richie Norton

The tragic deaths of his 10-week-old son and his brother-in-law shook Richie Norton and his family to their core, but their conscious response enabled them to turn tragedy into triumph. Richie wrote a compelling book, The Power of Starting Something Stupid, and helps people lean into their fears, make a difference, and live without regret.

In this episode of A Congruent Life, Richie shares about:

  • the unthinkable experience of losing his son only 76 days into his life, and how his family responded to that experience,
  • learning to articulate what he calls “Gavin’s Law,”
  • being conscious about what he wants life to look like, and more importantly, asking “Why aren’t I doing that?”
  • the power behind “stupid,” and the three Ts of stupidity,
  • becoming more scared of not doing something than actually doing it,
  • wanting to live life to be like a worn-out pair of jeans,
  • learning to operationalize authenticity,
  • embracing our authentic self as a vision of what we can be.
