In this episode, Michael shares a story about the famed 16th century Italian sculptor and painter Michelangelo, from which we could gain an invaluable perspective that could transform how we raise our kids: “In every slate of marble, I see the statue as though it stood before me today. And my job as an artist is to simply hew away the rough edges, so that others’ eyes can see it as I do.
