Helen Keller made this observation... a pretty incredible one for someone born deaf and dumb. My mother, in the midst of dementia and three weeks before her death proclaimed, "Let's be daring. Let's have an adventure."  Matt Walker is one of those folks who creates adventures for clients, believing that when you move out of the ordinary, amazing insights arise. I loved the interview he conducted with me about helping leaders and building team bonding because it opened my eyes to realize my work has been and continues to be an "adventure".
