FOOLS AND TOOLS
Slow change is lasting change. A true transformation happens after 1,000 cuts, 2,000 conversations, 5,000 tears, 7,000 glasses of water, and 10,000 dances. For transformation to take hold the very DNA and RNA of the thing must be recoded, repurposed, and redirected. Anything else is just a makeover.
What question would you like to ask your fear?
Do you want to dance?
