This is another short, off-the-cuff episode where I talk about how the straight life path most of us are expected to follow can become a source of unnecessary angst that hinders you from fully living the kind of life you choose. I cite another passage from Getting There: A Book of Mentors that many of my Instagram followers responded to a few days ago that shares the words of Jim Koch, founder of Boston Beer Company.
