philosophies ep05: embracing the unknown in business



There’s this very common thing that happens as we grow up, which is that the obligations and responsibilities start to pile up and pretty soon every nook and cranny of our lives is filled to the brim with commitments. We get to this place where life starts to happen to us and we stop feeling like we have a choice in the matter.

This comes from a place of being a constant work in progress, myself, from working through the mess. And from many wake-up calls where I had to bounce back from huge “failures” that at the time felt like the end of the world.

You were built as a resilient human being with a body literally set up to support you as you journey through all the things you can’t control.
