Play episode

Create a life that matters to you. The narrative we tell ourselves frames our life. Work can’t be about survival. Rethink work. Live differently. Capitalize on the small margins of your life, they add up. Stay curious. Live adventurously. Learn to play. Love the people that you’re with.
