It’s amazing what can be accomplished when you are surrounded by people who believe in you, people whose expectations are not set by the short-sighted attitudes of society, people who help to open doors of opportunity not close them.

How to think

Knowing how to think empowers you far beyond those who know only what to think.

Driving philosophies

I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. and lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised at how far that gets you.

We are in the universe

Science

The good thing about science is that it’s true whether or not you believe in it.

Celebrate or Encourage?

Curious that we spend more time congratulating people who have succeeded than encouraging people who have not.
