[18:28] We get stuck in thinking either, ‘I’m awesome’ or ‘I suck’. And it’s like if you didn’t achieve the goal perfectly, you can’t be happy with where you’re at. And not only is that not true, but it’s impossible to live a meaningful, purposeful life when you’re constantly battling the two sides of the coin of ‘I’m awesome’ or ‘I suck’. What I like to help people do is find all the shades of grey, find all the ways they bring meaning and purpose, not only to their life, but to people around them. And find more motivation in this idea of baby steps daily, than in the idea of chasing perfect.
