In the Name of Research

We are often willing to try things we wouldn’t otherwise do or try.

We pay closer attention to what’s going on around us.

We let go of our inhibitions in order to fully experience life.

We listen harder, talk less, think more, contemplate—and then relate to others with everything and in every way we can.

I know people who would scuba dive, para-sail, jump out of a plane, bungee jump, climb a mountain, visit another country, and shoot five different types of guns—all in the name of research.

But we don’t need research as an excuse to live life all the way, to give ourselves color and culture and depth. Regardless of if you have a reason, do it anyway.

Next week, I won’t be here to blog, because I’ll be out of the country doing some of the above mentioned things. For fun. And also in the name of research.

Come on, I’ll use it all somewhere.

Viva Mexico! Have a great week.
