  • How Rituals and Focus Can Turn Isolation Into a Time for Growth

“The response to COVID-19 suggests one answer: care for yourself and others. So take a breath and take the time to change the daily rituals that make up life. Throw yourself into them as if your life were at stake, which it is.”


  • Two Things We Know With High Confidence

“Unknowns exceed knowns even in the best of times. Today, that’s increased exponentially.”


  • Preparing for the Unknown

“We’re often advised to excel at one thing. But as the future gets harder to predict, preserving optionality allows us to pivot when the road ahead crumbles.”


  • Take The Long View

“If you’re too close to see the edges of a problem, you lose the sense that there’s anything outside of it, before it, or after it.”


  • Time Alone (chosen or not) Can Be A Chance To Hit The Reset Button

“In a culture fueled by fast-paced lifestyles and convenient technologies, we are easily pulled by our devices and our obsession with productivity. When we are alone, we find ourselves working, and when we have a free moment, we want to catch up with what other people are doing by picking up our phones.”
