Can I learn to be a better human? Can I shut up long enough to listen? Can I learn to live inside of the questions and stop worrying about being right? Can I learn to love the mystery we're all swimming in? I'm going to try. I'm going to seek out extraordinary people and see what I can learn about creativity, avoidance, productivity, mental health, different points of view, self-improvement, grit, screwing up, cleaning up, laughing, thinking, loving, and everything else that matters.
