When Jamie was in graduate school he ate a lot of pasta and made his own tomato sauce. He wanted his sauces to be delicious, not just adequate, so he experimented with countless ingredients to get them just right. But they always fell short of his high expectations. That is, until the day he discovered fresh basil. That one simple ingredient transformed his average sauces into the restaurant-quality creations he always wanted. In an analogous fashion, this blog focuses on the simple ingredients in life and work that allow us to transform our everyday, average lives into the best lives we can live.
