Takeaway I’ve learned from Alex Mandossian

There is only one verb to describe you- the one action word. Once you know what that is, you can work toward it and gain clarity.

Here are some examples with Descartes leading the bunch: I think, therefore I am

  • Fuller- I test, therefore I am
  • Montessori- I teach, therefore I am
  • Mother Teresa- I care, therefore I am
  • Hemingway- I write, therefore I am
  • Earhart- I fly, therefore I am
  • Joan Rivers- I provoke, therefore I am
  • Frank Lloyd Wright- I design, therefore I am
  • Nelson Mandela- I defy, therefore I am
  • Ghandi- I protect, therefore I am
  • Disney- I dream, therefore I am
