One of the most valuable lessons I have learned in the last decade of focus on "being better" is: It is perpetual. There is no moment of nirvana. The cavalry isn't coming. Some days are harder, some days are easier, but love and be grateful for the struggle, because it will be there when you wake up in the morning.
The truth is, everything is uncertain except for this instant, and I am deeply grateful for it. It is so easy to get caught up in the micro-bummers of day to day life... but even spilled coffee, while not my prefered outcome, is still amazing!
Week 24 of 2023 has arrived... Dunked into the slow moving Dutch canal of your life like a fictional Rebecca Welton. I was wondering... What do you want? Seriously. I have my own agenda... which primarily is: Motivating people to put the blood, sweat, tears and time into the work of being their best, most interesting, weirdest selves, while at the same time striving to personally live up to the above, while respecting my responsibilities as a Husband, Father, Son, and Friend. This is my mission both because it's incredibly rewarding, and also... I want to live in that world! So... What can I do to help? More emails? Different topics? Motivational posters? Videos? Podcasts? Something I haven't even thought...
