reflections on podcasting & self education

I’ve been thinking about my thinking a lot lately. As mind-boggling as that can be most times, I’ve come to realize that the moments I learn the greatest lessons are also the moments where it feels like I’m not even really paying attention. Like I’m on autopilot and the skillset…
