Oznog is a philosophy. It’s about the exploration of these diverse paths in life through the tales and lessons of the people who have traveled them. More than that, though, it is about exploring life yourself – rather than just living vicariously through the lives of others.
What did you dream of doing when you were a kid? Did you want to be an astronaut? An artist? A rock star?
I wanted to be an explorer – to discover new, far away lands. As grew up, these dreams began to fade and were replaced with bank accounts, mortgages and dull conversations. Then a series of tragic events changed the course of my life. A few months later, I was riding across Mongolia in an ambulance. I had, in a small way, attained my childhood dream. From that inflection point, my life has been on a different path.
I pose the question to you. What would it be like if, even for an instant, you could step into the shoes of your childhood dream? What if it is possible – and we’ve just convinced ourselves that it isn’t “feasible” as we’ve grown older?
These and other tenets of Oznog are being defined and refined in the Oznog Creed.
