In the 1980s, Thomas was a starving college student and aspiring screenwriter. That’s when his father helped him get a real job in corporate America. The rest is a miserable mess of perfection.
The old normal.
An upwardly mobile lifestyle that built a career and supported a family, while he endured three decades of self-loathing for being stuck in the mediocrity of his American success story.
R.R. Thomas became a disciple of his own mantra DROP OUT BEFORE DROPPING DEAD and peeled back 30 years of his professional life for a career do-over.
In 2018, he spoke with several young men and women at the Burning Man event in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. Many of them felt trapped in their life choices and passionless careers. They sought his throwback-style sage advice from his 60 years of curiosity-minded questioning and seeking answers.
R.R. Thomas responded by sharing his personal insights in his blog posts and podcast series.

He hopes to reach young professionals and life seekers of all ages with his blogs and podcast series (coming soon!).
The choices we make and personal energy we invest determine the quality of our lives, but often these two factors fail to mesh until it’s too late to make the life transforming change. “Where you zig rather than zag is the difference of loving or hating yourself for a lifetime,” R.R. Thomas explains.
Today, you will find him writing in his window seat at the corner cafe and recording his podcast series at his loft – sharing his insight of how to best achieve career success and personal fulfillment.
