The best thing that can happen to a human being is to find a problem, to fall in love with that problem, and to live trying to solve that problem, unless another problem even more lovable appears. (Karl Popper)
Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“What’s your lovable problem?”
“I have many. I like to think of them as beautiful puzzles, and I express them as questions. However I’m focusing on one at a time.”
“Which puzzle are you focusing on at the moment?”
“The order in which you do things matters. One puzzle can help you solve other puzzles. I call this process sequencing. Expressed as a question, it looks like this:
What is the optimal order to solve these puzzles?
You can think of it as a meta-puzzle.
To answer your question, my present focus is:
How to make fluid presence second nature, like breathing?
This question was inspired Josh Waitzkin.
I’ve come to realize that Presence is the most important meta-skill, hence the mot important Practice of all.”
