In 17 words: The ultimate goal with RidiculouslyExtraordinary.com and my life is to help 100 people achieve Ridiculously Extraordinary Freedom.

Hey there! I’m Karol.

(That’s pronounced like Karl, not Carol.  And while I’m at it, the last name is Guy-Duh.  Ninja Gajda(n) if you’re nasty.)

I was born in Poland and my family escaped communism shortly before Martial Law was instituted in 1981.  Close call.  Thanks Mama i Tata!

My earliest memory is eating a Starburst (with wrapper intact) my late Grandma Stefania gave me outside of our Mt Pleasant, MI apartment at the age of 2.

I believe in radical honesty even if maybe it’s not in my best interest.

I’m a fan of touring, canoeing/camping trips, sandboardingdownhill Big Wheels races, upside down canyon swingingparatrooper tossing, karaoke, shuttle launches, and seeing crazy things like flaming big rigs in the middle of Arizona.

I don’t eat animals or animal products of any kind (why I’m vegan) and I’m atheist. Both of those points are up for discussion, but you won’t convince me to eat meat or believe in your god(s). (Except maybe God of Thunder.) If that’s your game, you’re probably just not my Right People, and that’s OK. I still love you. 🙂

I play guitar (here’s the one I hand built in India & video here) like a madman and am releasing a quadruple live double album of Eastern European polka music next week.

I’ve never had the pleasure of working in cubicle hell, but I hear it’s…hell.

I have Ridiculously Extraordinary Freedom.

Do what we like and we like what we do. – Andrew W.K.

As you can tell by the picture above I’ve been free since childhood. 🙂

Again, my goal in life and with this project is to:

Help One Hundred (100) People Achieve Ridiculously Extraordinary Freedom

Specifically, I want to help you achieve your idea of freedom, whatever that may be.

Why 100?  It’s not that I think changing the lives of 1,000 or 10,000 (or more) is unattainable. I will do that too.  But first I’d like to get to know and directly help 100 people.

Once the goal is reached this Web site will self destruct and I will vanish into the ether.  More accurately, I’ll just go hang out somewhere cool, but that doesn’t sound as intense, does it?

Blog Update Schedule: Regularly, but not too regularly.

Speaking: Contact me if you’d like me to speak about Ridiculously Extraordinary Living to your crew. Specifically, I’d like to open discussions with High School Seniors before they go off to University.

Interviews: Blogs, podcasts, radio, TV, newspapers, living room sofas.  I’m there.  Just get in touch via twitter (@KarolGajda) or e-mail.

Travel schedule: Updated on the sidebar of every page. —>

Let’s do this!
