Lessons Learned

You must believe in your dream, even if no one else does.

Unhappiness or discontent can be a positive and powerful motivator. Combine discontent with inspiration & action, and go in pursuit of your quest.

Every traveler has a story of some unexpected kindness or hospitality.

That is the promise: you will live more curiously if you write. You will become a scientist, if not of the natural world than of whatever world you care about. More of that world will pop alive. You will see more when you look at it.

Writing needn’t be a formal enterprise to have this effect. You don’t have to write well. You don’t even have to 'write' exactly—you can just talk onto the page.

Inspiring Quotes

Alan Keightley

Business opportunities are like buses. There is always another one coming.
