Week by Week – W21Y2017

The start of a long stretch in NYC. I decided to try something different and stay longer on the road than just 4 days at a time. What I found in previous weeks was that the hours spent at the airport was a real time suck. I’m really missing my “home time” but will have to make the most of it and discover more of NYC. Most of all by catching up with family and friends while I here.

Re-discovered some Ella Fitzgerald. It’s so fitting to hear her classics while walking through NYC On a spring day. You can just imagine that some of the same amazing sights lifted her vocals and inspired some of the lyrics. I even took the A Train to Harlem, just to catch the same vibe. Music is […]

It’s a real challenge to stay even-keeled and kind in places during times that send some off into twitter tirades. All of us wrestle with the delicate struggle between emotions and reason. My approach has generally been to retreat into myself and clam up in situations where I would rather be confrontational but know it […]

Another busy week and my first time experiencing a NYC Snow Storm. After these past four-week, I don’t believe I could be anymore tired. The travel up and down is mentally and physically growing. The hot, then cold, and then hot again constant temperature changes is maddening. You have to pack everything; to that point, […]

The beginning of a week can have so much sway over how the rest will play out. I made a big mistake and flew up to NYC on a Monday morning around 6:45 am. I was drained and wiped the whole rest of the week. I know better and need to hit the ground on Mondays with more energy and a better mood. To that end, I have made Mondays a dedicated being a rest day from training and a triple coffee day in order to get shit done.

The traveling marathon has begun. I could probably run a blog on just the everyday experiences of business travel but I don’t like to relive the struggle more than I already do. What’s different this year is that the schedule and destination is set way in advance. Same client, location and dates for the foreseeable future. So, if there is any silver lining in all this travel, it is that I can still maintain some semblance of my everyday life when I am not on the road.

This weekend marked the 25 year anniversary of my dad passing away. It has been a very eventful 25 years filled with every imaginable turn. Though I wish I could have had him there with us along the way I feel like he has been there and I hope I am making him proud. He was without a doubt the most important thing in my life up until he died. He has remained influential by being an example I hope to replicate and reminding me how short life is and why we should push beyond our comfort zones. We never know how much time we have. May you all climb mountains, see new lands, and engage with the most interesting people. Life is too short for all the other BS.

A big thank you to everyone who donated to my #Movember campaign.I was able to raise over $4oo individually and my company team raised over $5,000 collectively. Charitable giving is very big to me so I am really grateful for those who stepped up and showed their support. I setting a big donation target of 5-10% of our base salaries next year to various causes. Especially the causes that the far right dislikes. In this new political culture, we have to come together to support each other more because I believe a new wave of greed and selfishness is on the way.
