The Youser Manual ™
Think of a car. If you want to drive a car, you have to take classes. Earn a permit. Log a certain number of miles driving the car. Take tests. Receive a license. Buy insurance. In the glove compartment, you’ll find an encyclopedic manual detailing all the things about the car. The car comes with diagnostic tools…it lets you know when you’re running low on gas…you have a tire needing air…or it’s time to have the engine checked. Heck, my car even has an alarm that rings letting me know when I’m drifting out of my lane. We get on the road with the car and we have lanes we need to stay in. We’re presented with directional signs, informational signs, warning signs and signs that we must obey.
Here’s the problem…we are far more complex, far more powerful and far more dangerous than a will car will ever be. AND, we come with none of that. This lack of basic information in the midst of wave after wave of uncertainty has led to unprecedented rises in addiction, abuse, suicide, depression, anxiety and violence. We’re more tired, less tolerant and that’s impacting our relationships on every level.
We’re here to help. Join us as we introspectively explore who we are, what makes us tick, and mechanisms you can deploy to safely and effectively navigate your road.
