Time is short. 

We let our days, weeks, and months fill up with stuff, and never spend the time, or make the investment into the relationships that matter most. 

Being Your Kids Friends

It takes work, and the work comes when you want it the least. Right from the day you bring them home from the hospital. 

The only way you’ll know is by taking the risk and putting in the effort

I might be wrong, maybe you literally have nothing to offer this world, I suppose that’s possible… but you and I both know that’s a load of crap. 

With a lot of passion and the imagination of a child just about anything is possible.

Let’s take those dreams and pair them with the resources, knowledge, wisdom, and energy of a passionate adult. Let’s remove our fears and embrace our vision of the world we want to make. 

Age is rarely a sign of relevancy, but more often a sign of wisdom.

I want to fix this problem one relationship at a time, setting one example after another; you with me? 

Don’t let the lack of bridges be your excuse.

Don’t let the lack of bridged be your excuse, get on that raft and paddle for all your worth, paddle across that river before your opportunity passes and never comes again. 

Some of the very best places are far off the beaten path

It’s certain though that if you don’t try, you’ll for sure never get there, you’ll for sure never do anything worthwhile, or anything that really changes the world for the better.

Never let go of the curiosity, never become too busy to chase down wonder and explore new places.

The day we don’t have enough time to, slow down and contemplate life, explore something new, try something for the first time, or just chat with a new friend, is the same day we lose a lot of what actually matters in life. 

The size of your vision is more relevant than the size of your person

Face it, we have been too lazy, too slow, too little belief in ourselves to do anything with our lives, and dang it, we don’t want anyone else to reach theirs either. If they do, it only makes it more apparent we gave up too soon, we didn’t try hard enough, or even at all.

Take the responsibility of teaching seriously.

Today’s fathers need to spend LESS time playing Call of Duty, and more time on their “calling” and “duty” as fathers.
