Welcome :)

Hi. I’m Brian Kerr.

Feeling stuck? You’re in the right place. Most of the time things aren’t great. And when things feel great, that experience of greatness is fleeting. We’re stuck in pain-in-the-ass systems that don’t work right. We’re stuck in groups that frustrate rather than inspire. We’re stuck in our own heads.

All we have is this day. Let’s use it: improve something today.

We’ll learn together. Thanks. —Brian
