In Chapter 3 of 17 in his 2013 Capture Your Flag interview, educator and entrepreneur Michael Margolis answers "What Role Has Reflection Played in Shaping Your Personal Growth?" Margolis finds the greatest reflection in his life has occurred during times of setbacks, in particular a prolonged illness of chronic fatigue he has battled for multiple years. He turns a potential time of despair, guilt and shame into a time of rest and renewal, taking time to reflect on what is and is not working in his life. Michael Margolis is founder and president of Get Storied, an education and publishing platform dedicated to teaching the world how to think in narrative. He earned a B.A. in Cultural Anthropology from Tufts University.
