I’m sure you’re just trying to get the most out of this post, but it’s not really linear. Maybe you’ve got a plan that makes the most sense for you. Maybe you’re just putting together a few pages to get a sense of the world, but this post is not linear. I’m not sure that’s the case, but it’s the least I can think of.

I think the concept of linear growth is important because it allows for a lot of great ideas to get born out of simple steps and concepts. The problem is that most people arent that good at building a structure and getting it to the right place at the right time. I don’t want to make you feel bad for being sloppy, but youve probably just been handed a bunch of stuff that youll have to work on in the future.

I love a good story, but I like to be able to tell it in a way that moves the story along while I am also telling you how things are going to go down. For example, in some ways it feels like I am not telling a story at all. It feels like I am just telling you what is going to happen next.

In terms of linear growth, I would say that we are mostly good at linear growth. We’re good at following trends in life. We’re good at staying on the straight and narrow path. We are good at not questioning our decisions. We are good at keeping our hopes and dreams up. But we’re bad at growing. We are bad at getting to the other side.

We often get our hopes up about what we think is going to happen next. For example, if you are a basketball fan and you hope that the next NBA Finals will be between the Lakers or the Celtics, your hope is likely to be disappointed, but that is a pretty common human expectation. We expect to grow. We expect that our dreams and hopes will eventually come true. That’s what we think is going to happen next. But it happens to be that it doesn’t happen.

Sure, it might seem that it is hard to get to the other side. But let’s be honest, most of us grow and we grow in small ways, too. A basketball player’s career will take about 1/3 of a season so that his next chance at a championship is in the playoffs. A golfer might get about 2/3 of a season and take about 1/3 off of his schedule, enough to make it to the Masters.

In the grand scheme of things it is really not that hard for someone to be able to grow. Many of us have seen people walk into a room and grow up. Most of us have heard the stories of people who grew up right before our own eyes. And what we can tell you is that if people in this society are not allowed to grow, we have no clue what life is going to be like.

Just a few years ago we learned that our society is not a linear growth organism. We know how much we can grow, we know that we can easily stretch ourselves to over 100 years of life. But we don’t know how much we can stretch to, because we don’t know what makes humans grow.

In the new Starz series The Expanse, which is set in the future, there is an episode called “Linear Growth.” The main character, a woman named Zoe, is given a simple task – to grow up. She should be able to take her own advice and grow from a 5 year old on up. Of course, as soon as she finishes the task she is thrown into a time loop.

This is a common experience for people in our life. We get sent to a time loop because we have some bad habit, or some event happens that has a lasting effect and we have no idea what the lasting effect will be. We think we’re going to die, but then realize that we werent really dead; we just went to a time loop and we are stuck in it.

Wow! I can't believe we finally got to meet in person. You probably remember me from class or an event, and that's why this profile is so interesting - it traces my journey from student-athlete at the University of California Davis into a successful entrepreneur with multiple ventures under her belt by age 25
