[13:21] When we start thinking about making decisions that affect our evolution, we tie in three factors that make them super hard and high-stakes: we make a decision, it is non-reversible, and it seems like it’s non-recoverable.
[15:02] Sometimes we think that we are failing, when we're really in the middle of succeeding, but the only way you know that is to know that you are trying a new thing and experimenting.

[38:26] Lifestyle changes can take time.
[1:04:29] It’s often what we are ashamed of and embarrassed about that can lead us to really get what we want.
