For me the phrase “Learn Make Teach Share” represents both an ethical approach and a practice that helps weave more curiosity and kindness into our interactions with each other.

I greatly enjoy making all sorts of things both beautiful and utilitarian but my favorite experiences have come from helping to create/inspire that deep full-body smile people get when they figure out something they never knew they could do before.

I believe those ripples of curiosity and joy make self-reinforcing waves that can help make the world more wonderful.

Some simple everyday goals:

  • Learn something new.
  • Make something that entertains you or does something useful … or both!
  • Share this with people you meet!
  • Help other folks learn how to do it.
