Back in January of 2017, I gave away most everything I owned and set out on a “two-suitcase life,” all because of Facebook. (You can read the full story here.) I even reconsidered whether or not should still do the Interactive Deep Dive. It met the criteria of my two-suitcase life–helping others who are striving to make the world better–so it stayed on the calendar.
Later that year, there I was in Austin, Texas directing the Interactive Deep Dive, working with a small team of talented and passionate artists for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. It was hard work, even more challenging than I expected. I needed to be at my very best every day, but the fact was, I wasn’t.
