A new model, lens, or perspective on life is what excites and feeds me.
When I discover something, there are generally three phases I go through while making sense of it:
At first, I study and explore it on my own. For a while, it becomes my predominant lens of the world.
Then once there is something to share I discuss it with everyone. This is the stage where the edges get discovered, softened, and integrated with other beliefs.
After a long while, it becomes part of how I am in this world.
Meeting me while deep in stage two, does give people a certain perspective on me.
