For the past few years, I have been a sucker for self-improvement. From podcasts to plant purchases, blogs to Buddhist readings, meditation to mantras: I've given it all a go with an open mind.

So what really works? What should we really care about? What do you really need to know?

One thing I have grown to understand is that we are all unfinished: there is no end product; the mere idea of that is a fantasy. This blog will hopefully demonstrate that there is beauty in that, in figuring it out, in learning to embrace the chaotic.

So who's with me?
