I vividly remember one of the first times I built into a team. I shared this concept – that love is the answer for sustainable greatness. That more love means more fuel, fuel for higher aims and more of what life’s all about. They didn’t buy it. Why? Mainly because I wasn’t yet totally sure I did. I was beginning to believe, but I still had a lot of fear and old habits. Fear that sometimes loomed larger than the love.
I trusted the process, kept practicing, built a stronger core. I couldn’t tell you the exact moment, but somewhere along the way I crossed the rubicon, so to speak. I learned how to fuel EVERYTHING I do with love. I’m totally in – hook, line, and sinker.
Why? Because when my aim is more love – doing more of what I love, giving more love to those around me – I don’t even stop to listen to fear. To the what ifs, what abouts, doubts and insecurities. They don’t matter. What does matter is that every single day I get to do what I LOVE in work and play, labor and leisure. I didn’t even know I could have so much joy, excitement and energy. I’m fueled beyond what I could have imagined.
One of my loves that gives me energy? The band. I get so much juice from our weekly band practices. In fact, I’ll be regularly traveling to and building business in Columbus in large part to spend more time playing with the band. I’ve found my few. So let me introduce you to one of our crazies – the Jiggster. He’ll be taking over for the month of June and I’m pumped for it. He’s filled with passion, care, and flow (both his style and his hockey hair). Go get ’em, Jiggs.

Great month setting a new edge every day in practice. Kick entropy in the face. Throw the damn ball.
The ball diamond and BTL have something essential in common — you must be strong up the middle — and our band and our work got stronger in May with you becoming Centerfield.
