Wholly Curious is an interview series aimed at following the white rabbit of a wondering spirit.
"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day." | Albert Einstein
Guided only by the whims of my curiosity, this series charts my interests as they take up residence in my mind and consume me with questions.
I got curious and started asking questions. Conversation, it turns out, is a marvelous way to learn. At the start of 2015, I found my own meaningful work in the form of life coaching—a career that just so happens to have conversation, curiosity, and questions at its core. My interests continue to expand and multiply, and I'm never quite sure where they'll take me. Follow Wholly Curious as it unfolds, as one topic tumbles into another, as wonder begets questions and more wonder results.
Begun in the spring of 2014 under the name HAPPY AND HEARTWORKING, my quest to get away from unfulfilling day-jobs and into a life of purpose and service turned into a pet project of interviews. The subjects were eight different women—a few of whom I knew offline and others I'd admired from afar—who struck me as particularly driven to perform meaningful work in this world. How had they arrived at a place where they loved the thing that consumed 40 hours (or more) of their weeks?
