Hi, I'm Treat

I share ideas from great thinkers so we can stand on the shoulders of giants, instead of figuring life out alone.

I'm also trying to make self-improvement valuable again. I can't stand most of the content today. It's cringey and empty. The well intentioned genre has become infected with videos and writing that sounds nice, but lacks real meaning.

My writing is an array of pieces on passion, philosophy, happiness, productivity, and life. You can read them on the articles page.

If you're someone who wants consistent self-improvement you should join my newsletter, The Steady Fella Newsletter .

Once a month I share timeless insights so readers can build towards the life they want.

What readers say about the newsletter

"Reading the newsletter is a quick reinforcement of powerful info. It's huge for personal growth and quick to give value. It's the perfect length for people's attention spans. I love the quote and passage sections."
Joban S. @jobanssaran
"This newsletter has changed my life. And I mean that in the most literal way possible; Steady Fella has a way of explaining things that you’re aware of, but aren’t TRULY aware of. If anyone wants to positively impact their life moving forward, I highly recommend you sign up."
Abhi S. @shxlat
“I’m not a big reader, but I always look forward to these. It’s really changed my view on life and improved how I think.”
Nicole @nicolealvares_
"Having Steady Fella in my inbox helps me think about living my life more intentionally and thought out."
Kellan R. @kellanrichards
"Steadyfella is the best self-growth newsletter your inbox can receive. Each writing feels like it was tailored to your situation, and its clear content makes each message easy to apply to one's own life. In addition, the author’s earnest and passionate drive for his subject leads to eye-opening conversations and spreading of ideas."
Damian @damiankosciolek
“Today it takes an elite newsletter to capture the attention of readers through its entirety. Treat’s writing surpasses this and he’s still growing. His insights have not only added refreshing wisdom about life, but have also engaged me to reflect further on the topics he covers. And I’m highly selective in how I allot my attention.”

“Hey Treat, I like your attitude and perspective of things. You got some good content. I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoy reading your newsletter. It's very well written and resonates with me a lot. This is the first time I ever shared a newsletter with friends, I guess that’s something you can be proud of considering I read quite a few regularly. You’re honestly one of my favorite subscriptions. Keep killing it, looking forward to seeing more from you and following your journey.”

“This piece made me tear up, lol. My boyfriend is laying next to me. It's a normal morning and it may seem like an unimportant moment, but I am with someone I love, I am safe in a warm bed, and I have a whole new day ahead of me. It's something to appreciate. I try to remember this anyway but reading things like this help it sink in. Thank you for your newsletter.”

“This was a great reminder on a Friday to remember this powerful concept 🧡 sometimes this comes to my mind and I am tickled with joy. For someone who doesn't feel that often, its invigorating to meditate on”

“You're only 22??? Seriously, you are one hell of a person. Thank you for getting this message out to everyone, I wish that you had been around to do so when I was younger. I'm almost 3 times older than you are and, wow, the regret that I carry around is huge. The missed opportunities weigh on me. But I can't change the past, so at this point I just try to live my best life in the present.”
Anonymous Reader
“This is deeply disturbing, but in the best way possible. It's an absolute mindfuck to even makes sense of something like this. It's just kinda sad that we dont stop for a moment to think how insane it is that we're even alive in the first place.”

“Tremendous post. Elite level post. It makes me see that nothing in existence is random. Everything has its due purpose. Life and death alike”

“You are very wise for one so young! I think keeping the knowledge that death will happen to all of us at the back of my mind gives an added piquancy to ordinary moments and makes everyday special. Thank you for your wonderful post!”
