Very beautifully articulated Adam!
This resonates very much with my own personal story. I also grew up in a small town, had success “very” early in my career and never could come close to getting there again. I spent a lot of time in personal torment, until I I changed my way of thinking about life, success and my perpetual quest for internal happiness. I learned that time is the most important asset. When my father got sick, it was the biggest wake up call possible. Making one person smile can change the world — maybe not the whole world, but their world. That’s all that matters.. appreciate your time and pay attention to the meaningful experiences that come with every thoughtful moment.
