I’m reminded of the time there was a mechanical problem with a machine that I was tasked to program, but before I could begin it had to be modified to work correctly. The modification was going to take some time, so I went on to other things.

I have a couple other posts outlining the reasons why getting up early is good for you and this post has a few common threads.
I watched a really great episode of Impact Theory yesterday and was inspired to write about it and some of the topics they covered during their conversation. If you haven’t seen any of Tom Bilyeu’s videos, you gotta check them out.… Read More “#10 Be Unreasonable”
We learn at a very young age that nearly all interaction starts with a greeting when we’re told to “Say hello to $name”.

So, it can never hurt to double check to stay on track. Measure twice, cut once right?… Read More “The Decision Series – #1 Am I Making A Good Decision?”
We’ve all been in a situation that brings us to question whether or not what we are putting ourselves through is worth it.
past year I decided that I had been sufficiently stressed to the point of
exhaustion where my mental and physical health had deteriorated, and the
project I was working on simply wasn’t worth it anymore.
It was before I got my Gameboy, so that would’ve made me 7 or 8 years old.
Dad got us swinging a hammer and turning a wrench at a pretty young age. He nailed a board to our deck that my brothers and I got to practice our sawing and hammering skills on.
