the question

What problem do you solve for people?

Life is the great math teacher. Writing problems on the board, waiting for a student who cares enough to share a solution. The students have been given more than enough tools to work it out but bystander effect, fear of failure, and peer pressure halt any sum in its track.

The difference between math and life is certainty.

If we’re doing math right, we can be 100% sure of a math solution. But if we’re doing life right, we are never 100% sure of the solution.

And that’s not a bad thing.

Uncertainty leaves open the door for more and more questions. More and more problems to solve. More and more kinds of people to bless.

Lean into uncertainty. Lean into the question.
