Practice is important in every aspect of work, not just the technical. Need to practice finding meaning; if you don't, you won't.

Primacy of meaning over technical capability as vital for nations as for individuals. Technique has no allegiance. Meaning sticks.

The Next America will not be built from technique, any more than the last. It will arise from a positive insurgency of value.
Time to be what matters.
