At a minimum, there are two “me’s.” First there is the one that just wants stay on my plot of land, no matter how small. Then there is the other one that wants to adventure to parts unknown. There’s the me that lives in the now wrestling with the me that dreams of future adventures. There’s the me that wants to rest on my laurels, and then there is the me that wants to achieve the next conquest (a new business, a new skill, a championship).
There is an internal tension here. Each of these “me’s” is trying to win out. Adventure me says, “I’m the real you!” Domestic me says, “Oh no, this is who you are.”
