We become experts in our little bubbles, but there’s a whole world of knowledge, skills, and perspectives out there that can enhance how you perform and live your life.

I’ve been through the darkness of PTSD, depression, and suicidal ideation. I can tell you from personal experience that one of the things that pulled me through was the ability to look beyond my immediate circumstances and open myself up to new ways of thinking. And it’s not just about professional growth; it’s also about personal resilience. Understanding different cultures, philosophies, and even leisure activities can add layers of resilience to your mental armor.
