Inspirational event:

A few weeks ago, I met someone who was almost suicidally depressed and getting professional help. He mentioned that much of his depression involved some actually philosophical concerns. After I elicited those concerns, I recommended two books and wrote their titles on the back of a business card.

Even as I consciously noticed that I would have pursued some friendship with Devon if I were feeling more social, I did not expect to hear from him again.

Today, he wrote to tell me that he's basically recovered — and that he found this book extremely helpful in working through his concerns.

A terrific reminder that Ideas Matter.

And, that I never know which of my small efforts to help someone will pay off big time.

Devon is a graphic & Flash designer now looking for work in LA. (samples)
