Welcome :​)

Feeling stuck? You’re in the right place.

Most of the time things aren’t great. And when things do feel great, those great experiences are fleeting. We’re stuck in broken, pain-in-the-ass systems. 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
