Ask why

The world seems very complex, but you have no idea. No one can fully grasp the immense complexity of existence.

We know life is complex, yet it is far more complex than we are able to imagine. Every tiny decision causes a cascade of results that interact with results from every other decision.

Behind what is obvious, are layers upon layers of factors that are not so obvious. Supporting every reason is another deeper reason, and another, and another.

In such a complex realm, you can always gain benefit by seeking to answer a simple question. That question is, why?

Work to know why, and you will discover hidden, valuable possibilities. Ask why, and you will uncover powerful connections.

Life is endlessly complex, and in that complexity you can find great richness. With curiosity, with determination, with purpose, with gratitude, ask why.
