Today, during practice 236 with a team of k-dev krazies, we heard a few share some gratitude and then we heard my Mom share a 93 year olds perspective. It was like one of the best Church moments to me. It is sacred to share time connecting in real community with those very unlike you and yet you somehow know are so much the same. Today was another sacred practice, at least to me. Yesterday was too, as Tay and I reconnected with a long lost friend during an unplanned encounter at another BTL team practice. Funny, isn’t it, that so many magic moments are unplanned. Monday was over the top freakin’ magic as it was filled with wall to wall practices and time with Krits, Miss, and Mom too. Today, during one of the quiet times in 236, I did a little rinse to my worldview. Here it is for what it’s worth.
The quantity (thanks, Jordan) and quality (thanks, Annie Duke) of your decisions, plus luck, determines the quality of your life. The more high quality bets you make, the luckier you get.
One of the luckiest things that ever happened to me was being born in the middle of Salina, Kansas in the USA. I am more grateful than ever for this great country we call the land of the free and the home of the brave. Thanks Mom and so many more who’ve paved the way for you and for me. Thanks family, friends, and clients for the privilege of coming alongside and building on the blessings we’ve inherited. God, help us all to pass it along. God, help us all to make a bunch of small bets, learn from each mistake, and keep playing whatever hand we’re dealt to the best of our abilities. God, help us all keep working, keep learning, and take less and less for granted. God, help us practice gratitude as a habit of the heart. God, help us remember we are all more alike than we’ll ever know.
God, bless you all. Good…
