Things You Might Be Overlooking As You Chase Your Dream

I might be so bad with blind spots that my blind spots have their own blind spots. Whether we admit it, we all have blind spots. Some are character flaws. Others are a product of our circumstance and focus.

What We Can Do About The Chaos And Injustice In The World
