Hello to you in Tucson, Arizona!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds, your daily dose of hope, imagination, wisdom, stories, practical tips, and general riffing on this and that.
Recently I offered a Story Skills workshop to support my friend and colleague Tania Marien’s EE Forward Summit. It was wonderful; we all laughed and learned a lot.
One of us happened to mention that it was intimidating. Yes, whatever is unfamiliar might appear to be intimidating, fearful until we jump in and give it a try!
The Polish-born scientist Marie Curie wrote: “Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.” Curie was barred from university at a time when women stayed in the home and winning not 1 but 2 Nobel prizes in science was about as likely as getting to the moon. And yet Curie was awarded the prize for Physics in 1903 and then again for Chemistry in 1911.
Question: Who and what can we understand more so that we may fear less and live better, stronger, more productive lives?
