Notable Excerpts 

Someone once told, “Joshua, there’s nothing wrong with getting a little lost because there’s nothing quite as thrilling as being found.” Which if you don’t know my name, you know it now.

The cracks tell the stories. Sure they’re highlights of your mistakes, but they’re the mistakes you overcame. Let’s look at a Rolex watch; in the long run the ones that become the most valuable and sought after are the ones with defects and imperfections, not the ones that are like the others. It’s backwards thinking, but there’s no denying that there’s value in imperfection. People crave unique, one-of-a-kind authenticity. I’ve gone through my fair share of refining over the past several years (though I’m sure I haven’t seen anywhere near the last of it) and I’m reaching points where some rough edges and sloppy parts are getting left behind. But I like those parts and have learned to embrace them. All this is coming from a recovering perfectionist. In our own lives, excellence should be the goal. The difference between excellence and perfection more often than not is that excellence is the standard you set for yourself, and perfection is the standard others set for you. Perfection glazes over the cracks and keeps the real you from shining out.

No great story ever happened when someone knew exactly where they were going.
