401: Reflections from a new grandfather

It’s a new year! A time for fresh ideas and new beginnings, and so much has been happening in Bart Campolo’s life that this episode serves as an update and a reflection on various themes, including:

  • How helping a parent cross life’s finish line can focus the mind and change your plans
  • How the birth of a first grandchild a few days later can turn the whole thing into a ‘circle of life’ motif, while turning attention on the kind of world they’re being born into
  • How suddenly becoming aware of your own habits and behaviors can give you a desire to change them.

Also, Bart talks about the expectations we have to react in certain standard ways when going through life’s journey, and how authenticity can cut through those expectations.
