What It Means To Be Human

I believe that the root of the work of being human is learning how to think. From this, we learn how to love, share, coexist, tolerate, give, create, and so on. I believe the first and most important duty we have is to actualize the potential we were born with — both for ourselves and for the world. The unspoken line of everything I write is: “This idea changed my life.” And I hope this book does that for you. I hope it makes you question everything you know about life, and who you are. I hope it deeply inspires you to change and to be the person who does things differently. I hope it inspires you to grow into the kind of human being you have always wanted to be.
