It’s who we are and understanding who we are and then understanding who other people are, and that helping us connect better. I’m not sure that we’re particularly good at it. I think that a lot of what’s happening in society is breaking that apart. And I have a real passion for helping to patch that together and teach people how to connect better.
You learn through other people’s experiences and hopefully that means that you avoid making some really dumb mistakes, and then you try to teach other people about your mistakes so they avoid them and fast track it into something that’s healthy.
