Minimal Maxims

Joshua & Ryan’s pithy, shareable, less-than-140-character answers to the lightning-round questions:

  • Joshua on traveling light: “All those things we thought we were going to need ‘just in case,’ we’re actually not going to need.”
  • Ryan on traveling light: “If you pack for more than a week when you go on vacation, you’re going to be distracting yourself from an awesome vacation.”
  • Joshua on the value of social media: “Rarely did a distracted person ever create anything meaningful.”
  • Ryan on the value of social media: “Instead of being a tool on social media, use social media as a tool.”
