morning babble / Thursday 08-26-21
Warning: This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes it gets tidied up, but sometimes . . . not so much. When all else fails – go watch the video!
Friday Eve – I ran #238 of 5K runs for the year . . . in a row.
I don’t want to be that guy. I don’t ever want to be that guy who says that they’re going to do something and then doesn’t. Saying it is easy. Doing it is the tough part. Do it.
I’ve been letting a lot of things get to me lately. The other day the Daily Stoic had a good entry about “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff.” (August 22nd)
“If you give things more time and energy than they deserve, they’re no longer lesser things. You’ve made them important by the life you’ve spent on them. And sadly, you’ve made the important things – your family, your health, your true commitments – less so as result of what you’ve stolen from them.”
Ryan Holiday – who has a new book coming out next month (9/28) – Courage Is Calling: Fortune Favors the Brave.
Reminder: I’m doing the 5K run for the St. Jude Walk/Run in Philadelphia on Saturday, September 25th. I’ve joined the team – XTU to the Maxx – which is with Charlie Maxx who you can hear middays on 92.5 XTU. To donate, please click here – anything you can do will be greatly appreciated for this great cause. “St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer”
