This is not another Friday

Each society and each individual usually explores only a tiny fraction of their horizon of possibilities.*
(Yuval Noah Harari)

When we don’t carry a substantial weight of personal responsibility, we can quickly become stuck. […] A life of ease is not the pathway to growth and happiness.  On the contrary, a life of ease is how you get stuck and confused in life.’**
(Ben Hardy)

Day one is easy.  Day one-hundred-and-one is quite another thing.

When we have found a question that we must answer, it’s the one-hundred-and-first day of learning how to keep going with something that matters so much more moves us closer to the answer

I’ve change one word in this quote from Edgar Schein:

‘The missing ingredient in most lives are curiosity and willingness to ask questions to which we do not already know the answer.’^

(I exchanged the word “conversations” for “lives.”)

Perhaps what emerges from our question is not so much an answer but a story.
