Hugh, I’ve always liked the way your brain works, based on your writing. It never would have occurred to me to act as if I’d die at a certain age, but I do generally feel like I’m maxing out my life.

It helps that I’m an emergency doctor, so every shift is a surprise and I’m constantly reminded that life can shatter in a split second. I have small kids who force me to pay attention. Plus, writing and publishing helps me to ask questions, have fun, and take a few risks of my own.

I’m just at the point in my career now where I’m contemplating taking more risks without a guaranteed return. Thanks for writing this.
