“I felt like if I fully embraced taking on life and just exploring it that there were still infinite things for me to do,” says André Kajlich. Three months after being hit by a subway train, Kajlich woke up in a hospital. Both his legs had been amputated. He didn’t think he had the fortitude he needed to live a good life now—which he so wanted. But he made a commitment to himself to find it. To find out what he could do with what he had and who he could become, and to ultimately answer this universal question: What makes a life worthwhile? Today, Kajlich is an endurance athlete and a record-setting wheelchair athlete who has been on some wild rides. But mostly, this has all been an intellectual pursuit for him—a way of figuring out how to get unstuck, quiet the inner critic, call bullshit on yourself, and believe in the possibility of change.
