Authenticity is eventually effortless

“I’ve heard it before.”

“I’ve heard it before.” Of course you have. Who hasn’t?

So yeah, you’ve probably heard it before. And one of these days someone will eventually say it in a way that actually makes it meaningful to you. Because if it was meaningful to you, you likely wouldn’t mind hearing it again.

The world isn’t black & white. Sometimes both parties can be “right” (even if they share different views). And sometimes both parties can be wrong.

It’s frequently far more valuable to consider where you want things to go — and the problems you want to solve — than it is trying to prove who’s right and who’s wrong.
