The Survival Issue: Once you get started, how do you keep going?
This year at Huck, we’ve set ourselves a mission: to map out the journey of a great idea as it evolves to become a great life. Call it a manifesto for indie culture, if you will, or just an excuse to hear from loads of inspiring people. The series opened with The Origins Issue, in which we explored how those people got their start. But once things kick off, how do you keep going? Especially against the odds.
The Survival Issue is not about absolutes – winning or losing, making it or not. It’s about the long hard slog. The painful, arduous, boring bit – the falls, the crashes, the crippling self-doubt – that connects one point to the next. What does it take to go the full distance? To really stick with your gut?
Not all ambitions end in wild dreams, but they usually start with a good idea. We’ll hear from people whose trigger was pure instinct, the need to escape a dire situation. And from others who just wanted to make small incremental changes to improve their time on this planet. Either way, there are lessons to be learned from every person’s story of survival, whether they survived something or are simply living.
Join us as we learn from them. We hope you stay the course.
