Narrowing down or widening out

A deep life is a good life.*
(Cal Newport)

They don’t know what they don’t know, until they find out they don’t know it.**
(Dave Trott)

It’s messy out there and it’s messy in here

Just when we have everything in its place, all shiny and neat, the unknown throws us into some messy, open-ended, more-questions-than-answers world.

Better get a pen out, there are notes to be made in the margins.

Life is always bigger than we know; we are bigger than we know.

In one sense, it could be said that it takes approaching eight billion people at any one time to give expression to just how big human life is.

*From Cal Newport’s Deep Work;
**From Dave Trott’s One + One = Three.
