In August of 2018, I hiked 200 miles in 12 days, solo, on the John Muir Trail. I had already summited Mount Whitney twice in the past two years, so I decided to bypass this part of the trail and hike from Horseshoe Meadows to…

Dads have superpowers, but we don’t always recognize what they are, or how powerful they can be. As a result, we miss some of the greatest opportunities to make the greatest impact as dads. This is not about “fixing”…

This is a story about some heroes of mine. Oddly enough, one of them has worked for me for five years. And in the course of that time, my life has been forever changed by their example. They are quiet doers…

On Tuesday, July 2, 2013, about 10 am, I found myself in a waking nightmare. I had just sat down for an impromptu strategy meeting with two colleagues to brainstorm for a marketing campaign. Someone asked me a question, but…
