Â Not every goal is equal, for example… my goal to lose 30 lbs is probably a little more important (and valuable) than my goal to win the Superbowl as ‘Da Bears on Madden ’10. Â Each goal we […]

Michael Jordan once said, “If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.” He also said, […]

If I can say one thing about Sam: she show's up. The most responsible kid I have ever known. The fact she's my daughter is clearly a bonus. She is my go-to on everything and anything. If she can't fix it or build it, she pops up a YouTube video on her phone to help […]

I like understanding why things are the way they are, although, to be honest, I’ve always been more drawn to the theoretical arguments as opposed to the practical ones. For instance, I don’t care very much about the ways that the hydraulics and various mechanical parts of an […]
