Average people hope they will be great one day.

Hope is not a strategy.

Every Monday, I send out my Opposite Project newsletter with specific tips, strategies, and motivation to help you get a little better each day. 

If you would like to be included, join here.


Hi! I am Yancey Sanderson.

This website is dedicated to helping you get a little bit better every day.

I don’t have all of the answers, but I try everyday to be the best version of myself possible.

I write about what works for me and what I see working for those around me.

It is human nature to be average. I don’t believe average people are trying to be the best they can be.

The most successful people in the world are not average. They understand the path to greatness is an extremely difficult journey.

They also know this journey is worth the effort.

This journey only happens if you make it happen on purpose. 

Be intentional and start now on your journey towards excellence.

If you would like to join this journey, sign up for my newsletter, The Opposite Project. (No Spam Ever!)
