“Whatever it is that you’re struggling with or you know what really got you off the path today. It’s just about having a safe place to land and have somebody here. If it’s beyond that, there’s always psychotherapy. There’s always other forms of help. But for most people, if they simply avoid getting in their heads, reach out to a friend, and feel heard.” (07:01)

“First of all, I think that when someone fails at something, there are many moving parts. So it’s about learning a brand new area, and we have to give ourselves some credit for risking to go and put ourselves in a new arena, right? It’s all about learning.” (10:05)

“Usually when someone’s in their own way, one of the things that I’m going to pick up on is a level of frustration. And a lot of times its also, that they have kind of been, I don’t know another word to use, but isolating.” (19:34)
