What an incredible time it is to be alive.
Without a doubt, we are the luckiest generation in the history of humanity… living in the safest, cleanest, wealthiest age to date.
We don’t have to focus single-mindedly, from dawn ‘til dusk, on where our next meal is going to come from, or how we’re going to survive this year’s winter, or how we could ever possibly complete the 3,000-mile trek from New York to California on foot.
We have almost zero life-threatening challenges to face on a day-to-day basis, and millions upon millions of life-enriching tools at our fingertips, most of which are accessible with only the click of a tiny (virtual) button.
