For someone who has a passion for (too) many things, writing a one-liner that encapsulates who you are as a person can be a daunting process.
That said, a close friend of mine once prompted me to rethink my definition of what a ‘life mantra’ is by posing the question,
“What do you hope to accomplish in everything that you do?”
To me, the answer was clear, “To help the world understand itself a little better.”
