[“A lot of people resist transition and therefore never allow themselves to enjoy who they are. Embrace the change, no matter what it is; once you do, you can learn about the new world you’re in. There’s only one life. There’s no repeats. You only get one life, and you gotta take advantage of it.” repost @jordan.b.peterson]
  • On the Illusion of Choice (YouTube video)

Young people have the illusion of choices. But if you want to be good, you have no choices.” – Nick Saban

  • On Creating Good Stories

We are vehemently faithful to our own view of the world, our story. We want to know what new story we’re stepping into before we exit the old one. We don’t want an exit if we don’t know exactly where it is going to take us, even—or perhaps especially—in an emergency.“

  • Your Whole Life Is Borrowed Time

“The universe is not at all sentimental—aliveness is always going to be an arbitrary status that can be revoked at any time. No recourse, no due process.”
