Newton’s First law of Motion:
In an inertial frame of reference, an object either remains at rest or continues to move at a constant velocity, unless acted upon by a force.
Here comes the million dollar question:
Where and how to find the force?
I went to a writer friend’s farewell party yesterday. No tears. Only laughters. Because by the end of 2018, everyone would be back in China. Me included.
They are visiting scholars at UCLA, from urban planning to neural science. A doctor wants to create video/audio content, explaining his line of work in plain mandarin that caters to the Chinese retirees who are Crazy Healthy Asians.
“I think I know my core audience. I think I know what I want to talk about. I have so many anecdotes from my practice… But I don’t have professional background like you guys.”
He meant me, my writer friend, and her director husband.
I opened my laptop and showed the doc how I created my podcast from scratch.
“Stop thinking. Start recording. You can’t find your style without ever trying.”
5:30 became 11:30. Six hours later, we were all connected on WeChat.
“It’s so inspiring to see folks like you who made an idea a reality.”
“Just try it out. You never know.”
“I think I will.”
The dude remained at rest until he met the Force.
You’re welcome, doc.
May the Force be with you.
