Preaching Doubt Is Wise

Being skeptical, questioning everything, looking for alternatives to things that are obviously far less than optimal is a labor of love. It takes courage and commitment to turn away from what most people simply take for granted or accept with ease and certainty. 

Here's one of my favorite questions: 

Are there multiple, overlapping ways to solve this problem.

Most of our problems are solvable. We must continue improving everything. But first we need to face our doubts honestly.

We need only open our eyes and minds and decide that we have a long way to go and we are able for it; and if we recognize that doing the hard work required to improve things will be the greatest, most fulfilling adventure of our lives we can find the strength to carry on despite our doubts.

Today I'd like to share this TED Talk by Casey Gerald

His talk is inspirational and wise.

Feel free to doubt.
