The Middle Bits:

What’s your #1 tip for a fulfilled life?

“Comparing yourself to yourself is crucial. Instead of comparing yourself to everyone else in the world.”

Is there a lesson that you’ve learned out of school that is not taught in school?
Self-awareness would be a huge thing. Being aware of what your all needs vs what you all desires are.


Key Takeaways:

  • “I think a lot of problems that actually coming from is lack of honesty. Equality is really useful and makes a lot of sense. There’s a thing that’s a lot of value which is celebrating differences, and accepting the differences.”
  • I constantly take that fight and thrown in a bin because I do stupid things. It’s a conflict of trying to understand why we do things vs. Why we’re doing.”
  • “The first thing is not the real thing, there’s something else underneath. What’s important is how to figure out whatever the real issue is. And that is really down the line.”
  • You need to understand that what you’re doing means everything to your partner. It’s a matter of understanding the value. When you do something, you’re actually demonstrating your care and affection. If you’re better, your relationship will be better.”
