I forget how (probably Bren's awesome Link Harvest -- right side of the page -- which is where I learn about a lot of cool things), but I recently discovered NPR's This I Believe and have been listening, fascinated, to several essays each week. I even introduced my leadership team at work to the program and we're all taking turns creating and sharing our own essays. I love the simplicity of the statements. The stories are so focused, and they seem to bring all of life and its chaos down to basic lessons. I like listening to people who have such clarity. I think I'm hoping it will rub off.
