That is an awesome shot and makes me smile. After 8 years in an awesome job at an incredible place, I am leaving next week to start a new life at an incredible young place on the coast of Maine. I was looking for reassurance this morning and found Romans 8:28. Then I saw this picture.
My wife and I rented a converted warehouse in Raleigh for a year (long story... fell in our laps). Loved it. Walked everywhere. We would invite 5 friends over and 20 would show up for a party.
Ben, Your words rattled around in my head a bit last night. Then I realized that my best friends, my real friends, are not on Facebook, not on Twitter, and prefer to speak on the phone, go for a run, or go for a ride. There are three of these people who are engaged in what they are doing. They are so engaged that they can't spare the time to be disrupted by social media. They know they might get sucked in and lose their edge. And these guys are disrupting the status quo and making a lot of people re-think the fields of their work. I am setting a to-do to talk to each of them this week.

We have a new brand launching in a couple of weeks. Cannot wait to share! The designers were awesome. They showed us to think at an entirely different level. They made us ask, "what do we want our customers to see?" For Nike, it is "everyone is an athlete." That is not their tagline but influences their brand. So, a vital point with both layout and layering is finding someone who will listen and observe you and your audience(s).

My friend and neighbor Bob Jackson left the ministry years ago as Brian McLaren's associate pastor to pursue his dream of being an artist. He now has gallery shows in Boston and NYC. http://www.robertcjackson.com/pages/gallery/index.htm

good thoughts on life. I'm getting used to the "you don't sound like you're from Pennsylvania..." rhetorical question about my southern accent.

And surround yourself with people who push you, love you, and make you want to give of yourself. If you haven't read Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell add it to your list. Good read on this topic.

Good thoughts. The 99% reminded me of Stefan Sagmeister's talk. I kept thinking, you can't do that, I could not get away with that. Take off a year every 7 years? No way. But he does. And he doesn't ask.

I pray that you move mountains.

Hustle - I like it. My brother used to yell at me when I would slack off, "Nobody walks except the mailman!" Simple phrase but it kept me going. I am down to two words - Focus and Clarity. 2010 was a year of distraction. I am going to focus on what got me here and clarify the purpose. Marshall Goldsmith wrote a book on What Got You Here, Won't Get You There. I am going to debunk his philosophy by twisting it a bit. Not sure of the twist. That's what getting me out of bed fired up (and hustling!) :)

I love this. Beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Maybe you've seen this cathedral in the UK by Bruce Munro. He is an incredible artist: http://www.lightshower.co.uk/album.php

Thanks for the flash back. I raced a black and red Kuwahara and remember the kid with the all chrome Hutch. Maybe I'll build my son a P.K. Ripper with Redline cranks and Bullseye hubs (that was my dream bike)
