My name is Ryan O’Connor

Through my blog I express my thoughts on the search for “success”. I explore what success might look like, what it might mean, and how I went about achieving it.

I believe success needs redefining away from money and assets, and should consider, state of mind, freedom, meaningful connectivity and joy.

Te Ahu Patiki: Aotearoa Ultra

After 38Km of running and the sun beginning to belt down through the now burnt off Canterbury Inversion layer, I was calling it much harsher names as with every step the sheering pain in my hips tried to tell me to stop and question my being.

Kotinga: Public Land Harvest

It was the perfect setting; three days of rain, a clear moonless night, an overcast morning and finally a break in the clouds allowing the sun to warm up northward faces and clearings. The perfect time for animals to stretch their legs and get in a feed of bolting high country sweet summer grass.
