At some point, everything’s gonna go south on you… everything’s going to go south and you’re going to say, this is it. This is how I end. Now you can either accept that, or you can get to work. That’s all it is. You just begin. You do the math. You solve one problem… and you solve the next one… and then the next. And If you solve enough problems, you get to come home.
—Andy Wier, The Martian
Let’s just say that hearing this quote on one of my many flights home was extremely, extremely relatable.
Of course, I have the luxury of having so many places that feel like home because of the people. That helps too.
