Cary chose to swap places with Person A who is living check to check but spends 2 to 3 hours a day online or watching TV to wind down. Cary would challenge himself to answer the whys. He would ask himself questions like, “Why are you living this way every single day? “ Cary would keep on probing from there. He would try to determine where he connects with his own life and tap into discovering the value that he brings to the world. Cary would try to explore thoroughly enough to transform himself at the deepest levels.
