We are Foodies and love to eat well, so we cook a lot, including lots of vegetables and Tofu. I used to tell my kids tofu has no taste, but takes on the taste of whatever sauce we cook it in.
Life’s the same. Life has no meaning, but we can give it one.

A good place to start is by reading Steve Smith’s intro to next Monday’s Member Lunch. Motivated to read more? Take a look at the Arthur Brooks article in The Atlantic under What We Are Reading.

Our ego tries to convince us we are all unique, but Joseph Campbell says we are all the same hero with a thousand faces. There are two great articles in this week’s “News”letter. Take the time to read and learn about the trajectory of what a great life can and should look like.
