How to Figure Out What the Hell To Do With Your Life

by Alexander Heyne · 4 comments

How do you discover

Milk the pigeon began with one huge question: What the hell do I want to do with my life?

You see, I knew that I wanted to do big things, and that those big things had nothing to do with the day to day bullshit I was dealing with at work and in my life.

I just couldn’t figure out what. And there were a lot of tough questions that needed answering.

That period of my life really sucked… if you’ve read the manifesto you can tell how much I had that burning fire to escape the rat race.

Maybe I was stubborn, or maybe I was just a naive youth. But whatever the case I could not see the justification in sitting in a 9 to 5 for 40 years, and then retiring.  Even if you had it good (which I did, when I started this site), I just wasn’t fulfilled.

I was existing… rather than living. I had a great job, an amazing salary for someone right out of college, and a pretty good life.

But a year later, when life was the exact same, that sneaky, insidious feeling crept up on me again.

There has got to be more to life. This sucks.”

That single sentence “There has got to be more to life.” birthed Milk the Pigeon – my journey

Since then, Milk the Pigeon has grown into a site with 1/2 million views a year, an entire forum discussing my ebook, and thousands upon thousands of emails from readers who are saying “thank you” because they are going through the same thing.


I’ve answered many of those tough questions since the site started.

In fact, I was getting the same 5 or 10 questions from the many thousands of emails I get, like: 

  • How do I live a meaningful life? My entire existence feels pointless… I did what everyone told me, got the great job, got married, and had kids. But I’m still not happy. What’s going on?
  • What should I do with my life?
  • How can I not get sucked into the bullshit of working 40 hours a week as someone else’s bitch, for the next 40 years?
  • How can I find my passion? What is my passion? Do I have one?
  • I’m totally lost in life and don’t have a clue what to do
  • My life really sucks right now and I just have no idea how to get out of this funk

After many thousands of hours of experimentation, and having answered some of these own questions in my personal life, there really are a few key things that I have learned.

For months and months I thought about making a class for you guys that would answer all these questions.

The Ultimate Figure Out What The Hell to do With Your Life (And Find Your Dream Job) Program

I’ve answered these questions before in the 150+ blogposts on this site, sometimes really in-depth, but I always wanted to make a course where these would all be together in one area.

One of my friends, Therese (who blogs at has a very similar audience: people trying to figure out what the hell to do with their lives.  I’m also proud to announce that her class covers the exact suggestions I’ve made to you guys.

Therese (who is funny as hell – don’t worry it’s not boring), talks about stuff like:

  • Why you don’t need to have all your shit figured out
  • Why “having it all figured out” is a total myth
  • Why you can’t think your way to the answer (and figure out what move to take next)
  • The real key secrets to experimentation and finding your passion – and why what you’re doing now won’t get you there
  • I know you’re looking for more than just work you love  – you’re looking for fulfilling work that fills that void in life
  • Therese’s 3 part system to help you  experiment and find a career, without risking too much time or money, and without constant job hopping

So if you want to check it out, there’s a Move-lah version,  ($149) or a   basic version  ($49 ) – you can also   watch this intro video real quick (module 1):

This Is For You If…

This 8-part e-course is for you if you’re looking to find that epic life path you’ve been searching for, in addition to a job you love – since (let’s be honest) the two are often intertwined. It appeals to a few types of people:

  1. Students, recent grads, or anyone at all who hasn’t a clue what they want to do with their life or where to start;

  2. Anyone who is unhappy in their current profession and has the feeling that “there has to be something more,” but they aren’t quite sure what it is or how to get there;

  3. Current professionals who would like to make a career switch.  You’ve been in the game for a few years, but are getting tired need some new shit on your plate (damn that analogy was terrible)

Why This Program Makes me Giddy as a School Girl


One of the biggest things I’ve realized in the past few years (that I now talk about here), is that you do not need to know the destination to get started.

In fact, setting 5 year goals is probably the dumbest thing you can do.

Do you have any idea how much my life has changed just in the past year? I read 40 books, traveled to half a dozen countries, started multiple businesses, failed multiple businesses, made friends and fired even more friends.

The biggest lie in life is that you need to know steps 1-50, in order to take step 2.  Buuuuulllshit.

That’s the biggest obstacle to you taking ANY action – your brain.  You have to get out of your brain and into your body.

That’s what this program is all about. And that’s why it makes me giddy as a schoolgirl.

So What’s in This Bad Boy?

what you'll get 1

And in the premium version:

what you'll get 2

There’s a Move-lah version which includes bonus video interviews with experts, a private community and support, which is $149.

And there’s a basic version which is $49.

What One Cool-Ass Chick Said After Taking the Course

The Unlost course, from the brilliant Therese Schwenkler is hands down the best course of its kind I’ve seen on the internet to help you get on the path to finding your way in the world.

Therese’s methodology is like no other one out there. Plus, she’s hi-larious and if you bought this solely for the entertainment value, it would be worth the price.

But it’s not just for entertainment. You’ll be getting incredible information and techniques to help you find your career and life path, and (if you choose the Move-lah version, which I highly recommend) you’ll get super-awesome support from your peers, Therese and other group leaders… The value is just off the charts.

I truly believe in this course so much and I’ve seen what it’s done for myself and for all of the other graduates. The process in this course will serve you well for the rest of your life… well worth the ridiculously low cost of $149.

Imagine a Day in the Life

If this program sketches you guys out, just email me!

But before you go I want you to just consider what life would feel like if you finally knew you were on the path you were meant to be on.

Imagine if you couldn’t wait until tomorrow because you knew it was taking you one step closer to your ideal life.

Imagine if you woke up and knew exactly what you were doing – there was no longer the fear of making the wrong decision or getting lost.

Imagine if over the next 2-3 months that feeling of being “lost” in life vanished altogether, and you slowly figured out what you’re here on earth to do?

How much is that worth to you?

Check it out .

Grab the the move-lah version (her recommended one), which is 149 and includes video interviews with experts, mentors, and friends, private mastermind groups & more.

Grab the basic version which is $49 (the price of a month of Starbucks mocha-doppa-frappa-lappucinos)

BONUS: If You Buy The Program, I’ll Throw in All 3 of Tim Ferriss’s Books (Free)

For Milk the pigeon readers:

If you purchase this program through my link, one of you will get all 3 of Tim Ferriss’s books from me for free as a bonus, fresh off the hot Amazon press, delivered straight to your door with a personalized love note from yours truly (U.S. readers only – sorry!)

Tim Ferriss 3 books

On the price of all three of these books together is around $50.00 – which is actually MORE than the price of the basic level in the program.

So if you’ve always wanted to read Tim Ferriss’s books, I’m literally sending you them free if you buy her program through my site.  It’s literally cheaper to buy the program (and then get the books free) than to just straight up buy the books.

As always, shoot me an email if you have any questions about the program —

So, grab the the move-lah version.


Grab the basic version

It just may be that key that helps you figure it all out.  It’s also a 100% money back guarantee, so if you buy it, think “this isn’t right for me” you’ll get an instant refund.. and you can keep the Tim Ferriss books.

It isn’t “quit your job and travel the world like Caine from Kung Fu?”

Well there goes half of the websites that purport to answer this question!
