Welcome to Hacking the Matrix (HTM), a place where smart people make the impossible happen!
“They did not know it was impossible so they did it”
My name is Alain Chautard. I’m a software developer and entrepreneur. But I do many more things. Exploration and adventure have driven my entire life so far. I found out that being an employee wasn’t my thing.
I needed excitement, fun and opportunities. I needed more than an infinite list of boring tasks with undefined career outcomes, so I decided to take my destiny in my own hands instead of letting others do so.
Over the past five years, I have moved from New Jersey to France, quit two jobs there, moved once more from France to California, started my own business there, travelled thousands of miles, had two kids with my beautiful wife Adeline, ran a marathon, wrote a book and took thousands of pictures.
It wasn’t all easy. There have been battles, tears and losses. Obstacles taught me a lot. This site is the place where I share how I did it, how I hacked the Matrix and basically changed my life for the best.
“I’ve taken my destiny into my own hands and I’m in a happy place.”
The purpose of HTM is to share actionable advice in order to live a life where impossible things happen. Our goal is to make your bucket list become your daily to-do list. We also write about business, productivity and life adventures in general.
