Week 5, 2024

I've worked hard on things that didn't pan out, and I've worked hard on things that did.  The only unifying theme in my life is that I have benefited from, and learned to love hard work. (Most kinds.)

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.
