It’s graduation season, and I was reminded of this excellent essay by David Foster Wallace. Great wisdom on how we all choose to experience the frustrating parts of life. And let’s face it, if we let them those frustrating parts can become our focus.
It’s not in the video, but I think this is the essay where Wallace points out the the brain is an amazing servant, but a terrible master. I highly recommend picking up a copy of the essay and reading the entire thing. Let me know if you want to borrow my copy.
