FOR ALL MY HIGH SCHOOL YEARS, I WORE A SIZE 10 1/2 SHOE. THESE SHOES WOULD PINCH AND HURT FOR A FEW MONTHS, UNTIL THEY STRETCHED. AT 23 YEARS OLD, SOMEHOW, I FINALLY BROKE OUT OF THE MINDSET OF HAVING TO SUFFER FOR MONTHS AFTER EACH PURCHASE. I FOUND MY TRUE, OUT OF THE BOX COMFORTABLE SHOE SIZE WAS 12 1/2. THIS IS THE SHOE SIZE I HAVE WORN FOR THE 35 YEARS SINCE MY REVELATION.

What blinders do we have on? What unnecessary pains do we complacently accept?

What comfortable (and comforting) facts and paradigms do we accept in our lives, for years at a time, despite our pains, without question or attempt to find different, if not better, options and opportunities?

What do we know about we don’t know (known unknowns)?

What don’t we know about what we don’t know (unknown unknowns)?

Everything be on the table, EVERYTHING, when it comes to wondering, questioning, asking. No sacred cows.
