For this #livelongpath feature, we chatted past, present, and futures with tech co-founder, advisor, and biz dev expert @jessehmorris 💡 • Q: What are some lessons, ideas, beliefs, or stories your parents shared with you, or showed you through their life experiences, that have shaped who you are today? A: My parents have been madly in love for 51 years - it is their relationship I aspire to have with a future partner. It's easy to take for granted how special their relationship is and it fills me with deep joy each time I think about how they've grown together. They have also taught me the importance of family, blood over water, and how grateful we are to have one another. • Q: What is most important for you to pass on to your future kid(s)? A: Kindness, kindness, kindness. It is my belief that kindness is the root of good. The cure to loneliness. If I can instill kindness in my future children as a way of life, as something to lead with and be proud of, I'd would be proud. • Q: What are your hopes for future generations? A: My hope is that future generations understand how easy is has become to adopt addictive behaviors given the advent of the internet. That they can use that obvious trap as a lesson and drive original though and action from it. More leaders that always question the status quo. • Q: How will your family members remember who you were, 100 years from now? A: Such a powerful question. As a man of the people. One who always give his all to help others achieve whatever it is they wanted. As a loving, supportive husband, brother and father. As a guy who made real advances in the lives of people with autism. As a friend that everyone knew they had, whether they knew me will or not.
