Good morning folks!
I was going to talk about the evil of sitting today but it will have to wait. I have something a bit more timely (and somewhat unrelated) to chat about today.
I met a very interesting fellow this week, Jon Tam, quite by accident. He’s a friend of a friend that met up with us for a beer. Then he started telling a few stories. All I can is wow!
- He doesn’t really earn money at his gig at non-profit in South America, schoolBox. He has to do a lot of work in Nicaragua and all he gets is expenses paid. And this guy is no slouch and no dummy (he has an MBA).
- He was held up at gunpoint recently and stripped of all his belongings and dumped in a different part of town recently. And he recalls it like you would a trip to the water park. Wow.
- He doesn’t seem to be one of those people who look down upon people who don’t see it his way or live an exuberant lifestyle (know anyone like that?). Very refreshing
I was thinking about a few things before chatting with this guy and he totally blew me away. What was I really worried about? What kind of fool am I for worrying about trivial things?
Anyway, I’m now a believer and trying to help out this amazing organization (I have yet to hear a bad word about them) now and I’m sure they could use some more help. Hint. Hint.
Here’s a video that shows a bit of what they do:
On another somewhat unrelated note, check out this awesome video from Sports Illustrated. It’s about Stacy Lewis’ incredible story of overcoming scoliosis as an 11-year-old girl to becoming one of the top players on the LPGA Tour. Awesome to see what you can do when you try!
Lacking motivation to get work done on a Friday? This should help!
