I don’t know about you, but I don’t like when someone lobs an advice grenade at me and walks away, expecting me to do what they told me.

Why am I here? What’s my purpose in life? What am I supposed to do? What’s in my future? Where should I work? Where and how should I live? Big questions, and they shape the quests and Epic Quests we build for our lives.
If you put one crab in a bucket, it can climb out. But if you put a bunch of crabs in a bucket, any one that gets close to getting out will be dragged down by the others as they latch on.
