According to some statistics, 30% of humanity lack meaning in their lives.
I think that this statistics is off by a lot.
- There are people who don’t have meaning in their lives, but they don’t miss it, they live an animal existence and they don’t need, don’t want anything else.

I rarely cry when I read a story, but this story made me cry. It’s about a handful (9) misfits that made history, that didn’t quit when it made sense to quit, didn’t stop until they lived in a way that matched their vision of a life worth living.
When I look at my work, I see myself as a misfit that doesn’t know when to quit. And when I look at you, I am proud to have attracted a small crew of misfits that don’t quit.
Because living a life that is worth living is a mighty idea, and needs you to be a misfit… after all the world argues for a life other people think you should live, a life not really lived, not even experienced, a life that is sleepwalking…
Enjoy the story. I loved it.
