WRITER, TRAVELLER, ENTREPRENEUR

Many of us are running ever faster to keep up. But true success is not achieved by attempting greater speed on the treadmill of life. By (re)learning how to run free and finding your own definition of joy, connection, creativity and freedom, you will find the meaning of true success.
— Diana Wu David, on her TEDxWanChai talk titled 'The Difference Between Running and Running Free'
