Get Out of Your Head and into Your Life, Before it is Too Late

Ryan Lindner had two sudden unexplained cardiac arrests at a young age. This forced him to explore different perspectives from profound, life-changing events.

Priorities change when time becomes precious. Problems look different when you have no energy left to give them. 

"If you are not living, then you are dying." - Ryan Lindner

You CAN start living. Every. Single. Day. 

Ryan Lindner is a personal development specialist who has worked as a behavioral coach for clients and top organizations all over the world. After two sudden, unexplained cardiac arrests at a young age, he began to explore different perspectives with clients that come with any profound, life-changing event. It was not uncommon for Ryan to teeter on unconsciousness even while working with a client, requiring him to prioritize his own energy and time masterfully, and assisting clients to do the same. 

Marathon runners do not talk much on mile 20 - they choose to breathe

Ryan has conducted thousands of coaching sessions, has led operations for a major leadership and organizational change company, and manages learning and development projects for companies to reshape their customer experience.

You will enjoy Ryan's interview as he addresses the blind spots/habits people do not realize they have and to prioritize their lives and live their best!

“I’m going down now,” I said to a young woman a few seconds before the darkness—my first cardiac arrest. As I returned to work as a behavioral coach, it became maddening to hear, for the ten-thousandth time, about all-consuming, everyday problems and misguided priorities while I fought to merely remain conscious.

The Half-Known Life challenges the conventional thinking of success, identity, and personal change. Most often, truly profound change happens following events that shake someone to their core—a car accident, death of a family member, or cardiac arrest that pulls them into a moment of clarity. Priorities change when time becomes precious. Problems look different when you have no energy left to give them. After all, marathon runners don’t say much on mile twenty; they choose to breathe. And all I have to give is channeled into each moment that I am awake and I, too, choose to breathe. 

Why wait until you’re burnt out or for a life-changing event to occur before getting real about your life? Who are you when all of the accolades and accomplishments are gone? You can master time management but what does how you manage that time say about what’s important to you—about what matters most? 

Get out of your head and get into your life, before it slips away.

Have You Wondered What to Do as Your Parents Age and May Need Your Full-time Care?

After being a primary caregiver for her mother for over six years, author Lynn Abate-Johnson understands the typhoon of emotions and responsibilities that come with caring for a loved one. However, she discovered how to blossom through (and after) caregiving rather than let it drown her. 

Out of Love

By using her natural organizational skills and her solid work ethic, she developed systems and processes to help navigate the difficult journey of caregiving, which allowed her to go from “What am I going to do without my mom?” to “I know I can thrive after she’s gone–just as she would want.”

Like most caregivers, Lynn juggled caregiving duties with a full-time career. In her daily life, she’s a business consultant and global community builder. 

Caregivers are worthy of the same love, care, and attention they give their loved ones, which means they need emotional and logistical support to help them thrive. Unfortunately, it can take copious hours of research to find the resources they need, which leaves them feeling drained, frustrated, and overwhelmed.

Lynn Abaté-Johnson understands this firsthand, having been a primary caregiver for her mother for six years. She believes caregivers deserve to be cared for as well, which is why her book Out of Love provides readers with reassurance, comfort, and practical systems and processes to help caregivers provide care easier and discover how to blossom through their journey.

Lynn Abate-Johnson

Dear Fellow Caregiver,

You are not alone.

I'm with you.

Have you ever felt like you are in a tsunami of emotions? One day, everything was fine, and then something about someone you love changed forever. Out of Love was written for you, in your time of need, and for those moments that feel hopeless. I wrote these words to encourage, inspire, and let you know that, "Everything will be ok, honey," as my dear mom, Rosemary Ann Hakim (aka RahRah) would say if she were still with us.

Out of love, I learned how to be a caregiver.

Out of necessity, I created systems and tools that supported the daily tasks inherent in caring for someone with a life-threatening dis-ease.

During the six years of my mom's illness, I journaled daily and in the aftermath of her death, I was able to see the vital lessons those years taught me.

In my daily life, I'm a business consultant and community builder. The life of a caregiver was unfamiliar to me but somehow, as you will, I figured it out (not perfectly) purposely. I am honored to share my personal journey with you.

As my mom always said, "Life goes on."

And as usual, she was right about that. You will see that in this book.

Everything is going to be ok. I promise.

I'm with you.


Lynn Abaté-Johnson

Lynn Abate-Johnson

Lynn’s words offer a uniquely personal glimpse into her journey as a daughter of a strong mother, along with her own transformation in the aftermath of being a caregiver.

Lynn’s approach removes the stigma of grief and her expressive and often vulnerable ways of sharing help to normalize what many families may take for granted or miss in their often overwhelming and new experiences as caregivers. There will be discomfort, shame, guilt, and layers of conditioning to discover in this book with the goal of bringing light to the dark and peace to the soul.
