Episode 94: A Friendship of Mutual Challenges

These are the times in which a genius would wish to live. It is not in the still calm of life, or the repose of a pacific station, that great characters are formed. The habits of a vigorous mind are formed in contending with difficulties. Great necessities call out great virtues. When a mind is raised, and animated by scenes that engage the heart, then those qualities which would otherwise lay dormant, wake into life and form the character of the hero and the statesman.
— Abigail Adams

In a more personal episode, we spoke with Leland Holcomb this week to discuss friendly challenges we have shared with one another for the past two years. Whenever we catch up, we make it a point to push each other to try new activities, adopt foreign perspectives, and to move past our comfort zones. We describe some of our favorite challenges, the impact they've had and how we think challenges like ours could be applied to the lives of others.
