Flat white nonfat milk and a baguette from the bakery next door.
I still tell my kids to not trust strangers from the Internet.
Quite a few of those X things turned out to not work so well after a time anyway! Let’s make new things that don’t work instead of the same old things that don’t work.
💯 LARPing. I think about this often. Sounds like a great talk. The qualities I value most in people are things like authenticity, honesty, kindness, humor, curiosity, generosity. But I’ve found those qualities tend to limit leader advancement in large orgs.

Sure, but don’t let go of the analytical part. That’s needed to be a self-aware, complex person. It’ll influence direction by laying out the criteria for your gut.
It’s hard to move forward from a full analysis paralysis. It is easier to keep moving once you’ve committed to a direction.
Everything is arbitrary and under-constrained if you take too long with it. It’s like saying the same word over and over until it sounds weird. You’ll need to be split-brained, with a nerdy confused mode as existential conscience, but also a jocky action mode pushing forward based on “gut” assessment.
