Why You Aren’t Getting Better: Examining The Reasons Behind Being "Better"

Human as we are, we’re living life constantly reaching for the better things. We’re aiming for the next opportunity, next level, next step in our career, or the next phase in our lives. But why is that? Why do we want to be better? Jason Wrobel and Whitney Lauritsen reflect on this human quest of personal development, seeking and striving to become better. At the heart of this episode is the quote from Alan Watts that goes, “the reason you want to be better is the reason why you aren't.” They dive deep into what this means and what it says about us while also sharing insights on storytelling, atomic habits, happiness, authenticity, and self-worth. Will we ever reach the thing we want? When do we know we have it? Jason and Whitney explore in today’s conversation.
