We social creatures must share inspiration to excel at innovation. The way we approach the world determines what we can make of it. If we look at obstacles, such as war or space travel, as opportunities to create solutions, we advance not only our own capacity to catalyze a positive change in the world, but the starting point of future endeavors. Cheers.
