Remember how it felt to start a new job? When everything seemed foreign and out of reach? Learning a new job and acclimating to the systems, customers, processes, culture and specialized content can be overwhelming, and it usually takes at least six months to feel comfortable in a new position. But you don’t have to be new to a job to experience doubts about your own abilities.

“The universe is the ultimate free lunch.”

“Every formula which expresses a law of nature is a hymn of praise to God,” the trailblazing astronomer and leading Figuring figure Maria Mitchell wrote in the second half of the nineteenth century as she contemplated science, spirituality, and the human hunger for truth. Every great scientist in the century and a half since has been faced with this question, be it by personal restlessness or public demand.

And yet we move through the seasons of our lives missing the vast majority of what surrounds us. How, then, do we master the art of seeing — that elementary exi… Read More
