What I'm Reading / Listening To:

In a world where most are focused on specialization, we are losing the beauty of the generalist. Which, in my opinion, is creating inefficient echo chambers. Range provides further context and examples of the benefits generalists provide. Range also exemplifies the usefulness of neurodiversity in individuals and organizations.
Still On My Bucket List:
Climb Mount Denali in Alaska.
Best Business Advice:
Decide the friends, mentors and leaders you want in your life, in your inner circle, and court them with emotional generosity. Make it matter.
