Relearning

I had a meeting yesterday in which my CEO had a bit of sage wisdom that set me back on my course to do (what I hope are) great things. “You’re looking for a touchdown when all we need right now is a first down…and then another one.” I’m not a football fan, but I’m knowledgeable enough to know that he was right and...

Another beginning

I was originally going to entitle this “A New Beginning” and while fitting, I think “Another beginning” is more so. I’ve started this blog (or some variation of it) about a dozen times over the past 17 years and have thought about it exponentially more than that. At the end of the day there were two major things standing in my way to taking...

Sampson Reckoning

The best man in my wedding, one of my best friends in the world, worked on a game called Kingdoms of Amalar: Reckoning and it’s a great time.  A lot of fun packed into an epic adventuring RPG.  I highly recommend it and not a scrap of that recommendation is based on my friends sweat and tears, that’s just icing on my personal gameplay...

Full disclosure – both of these things I cared very little about. But...

I want to be great

I love great blogs.  That’s one of the reasons I want to create one.  I also find it cathartic to share something openly with the world.   On the main sidebar I reference Tynan’s blog.  I hope I can achieve his level of awesomeness someday.  For now, I’ll just say this is exactly what I needed to read today: I want to be great....

Running and business

I step outside and begin.  For the first five minutes I walk, in order to get my heart rate up a little and mentally prepare myself for the run.  I use this time to think about what I’m going to accomplish.  I’m going to complete the whole 5k today.  I’m going to run under 9:30 in my first mile.  I’m going to do my...

10 Day Juice Fast

10 days of homemade juice and water.  Why would you do such a thing? This is actually the third time I’ve done a juice fast and it turned out to be a lot harder than I expected it to be this time through. Juice fasting has become increasingly popular because of the movie Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.  This is where I heard about...
